The park is situated right alongside the Blackwater River and has a splash park which is sure to thrill the kids. Adults can savour a quiet walk along tree-lined avenues or the stillness of the ornamental lake.

-Cultural events: A number of visitors who head to holiday apartments in Maldon in spring are enthusiasts of the annual Maldon mud race which originally took place around New Year’s day. This charitable event organised by Lions & Rotary clubs takes participants over a 400m course across the River Blackwater.

                                                                                                  5 of 5

The bed sheets were wonderful. The barn is adjacent to the on site cafe that serves a well cooked selection of dishes for breakfast / lunch. The gym is well equipped and was quiet when we used it for a mid week workout. The Jacuzzi and Steam room are a welcome feature too. The staff we're super friendly, dealing with the intermittent wifi and beeping smoke detectors efficiently. All in all, a fantastic break. Highly recommended.

                                                                                                  4 of 5
