Alan Rogers Review

Steeple Bay Holiday Park is situated at the end of a long, single-track drive. Most of the level touring pitches are in a grassy field overlooking the water; they do not have electricity. There are approximately 20 touring pitches with electricity (16A) on hardstanding adjacent to the main facilities and on the periphery of the static park. There is ready access to the Mayland Creek and its private slipway for boats and jet skis. There is a huge variety of activities available or you can relax in The Riverside bar (cash only). The heated pool is perfect for children and grown ups alike with a paddling pool for young children. You do not have to be a sailor to enjoy Steeple Bay, just watching the boats and yachts go by can be very relaxing.

The medieval town of Maldon is nearby with plenty of shops and restaurants to discover – Thursdays and Saturdays are best as they are market days. Steeple Bay even has its very own Seal colony, which can be seen from the Park itself - you can spend hours watching these cute and playful creatures skip, jump, dive and swim in their natural habitat. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, Steeple Bay should suit.
