There is a mown grass area suitable for camping alongside the Navigation at Hoe Mill, adjacent to the car park. The site is a Camping and Caravanning Club Certificated Site, and we are able to accept up to five caravans, motorhomes or trailer-tents (membership of the Club is required), as well as tents (membership not required for tents).

There is a small toilet block with wash basin and drinking water, but no showers or other facilities. This is a surprisingly quiet rural area for the South East, with plenty of good footpaths to explore the countryside, and the Navigation here is very popular amongst canoeists (licence required). The village of Woodham Walter is just under one mile to the south and has three pubs (The Bell, The Cats and The Queen Victoria), a shop, post office and a church. The small village of Ulting, to the north, has a picturesque church beside the Navigation.

Campers should make themselves known to Laura Ellis, residential caretaker, on her boat 'Pebbles' (not at the lock cottage) before pitching their tent. It is advisable to book in advance, even if on the day of arrival for last minute visits - telephone Laura Ellis (Tel: 01245 382156).

This is a lovely little field to tent in, for a few days in a very beautiful setting,Martin runs the area and is very friendly and helpfull to his visitors.There are two pubs very nearby and sitting and eating at the 'the old ship' watching the boats coming in and out of the locks was lovely ( get involved and help open or close the gates ) I did and its harder than it looks, definetely will return had a very nice weekend break.
