No visit to Essex is complete without a day at this popular zoo with over 250 species of animals. The enclosures are well maintained and the zoo provides a good habitat for the animals there. The 60 acres of parkland and lakes are ideal for walking round and we are sure this day out will provide you with lasting enjoyable memories. Some of the highlights include penguins which you can see swimming at Penguin Shores, and the elephants at Spirit of Africa. In addition there are over 30 daily shows to attend.
This attraction is actually free of charge to enter which we think is excellent. Located on the Southend Seafront there are over 50 rides and attractions to enjoy. For the very daring there is a 75ft roller coaster with a more than vertical drop- not for the faint hearted! Other highlights include the Dragon's Claw, Vortex, Scorpion, Ramba Zamba and Sky Drop. Younger children will also find plenty of more gentle rides and attractions to keep them entertained.
A day at Great Notley Discovery Centre and Park is a fantastic way to explore the very best of Essex offering many facilities including a sensory trail, visitor centre, bistro and cycle hire centre. There are links to over 15 miles of walking and cycling paths on the Flitch Way too. Those with young children can rent a trailer or tandem bike to make exploring fun for the whole family.
First time we have stayed in No. 11- Found the couches more comfortable than the other lodges we have stayed in and the bigger hot tub was excellent although the cover is extremely awkward to move.

This was our second visit and we forgot that the kitchen equipment is very limited for cooking meals. Things like a cheese grater would have been really useful along with other things
This is the second time we stayed here , we love the lodge , they are beautifully decorated and have everything and more than what you need . This time however we did find the cleanliness had dropped slightly and one of the beds needs maintenance. But the value for money is incredible . Compared to what you would have to pay to stay in a hotel of such standard these lodges are a steel. We will continue to use them and are keen to see other parks .

However, Everything else was excellent and I will certainly be back again next year.
We enjoyed our 2 nights in the Roydon VIP lodge so much that we have booked a 3 night stay for next month. The lodge was spotlessly clean and spacious and really comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with all necessary utensils - I was able to produce a full Sunday lunch without running out of pans etc. And the hot tub - wow - it was glorious and so private! I've never sat in the garden in bubbling hot water before, watching the stars at 1.00am! It was fantastic. The only negatives were (and I'm being picky) we could only get 1 channel on the TV - BBC1, but who really wants to watch telly when there's a hot tub to play in! And again, not that it really bothered us, the hot tub was supposed to be checked by staff each day and it wasn't but, to be honest, we were happy not to be disturbed. Treat yourselves and book a break - you won't regret it!
Cannot wait to book our next break. Felt at home as soon as we walked through the door.
Peaceful location, close to the railway, our son loved watching the trains go by. A lovely lodge, hot tub was fab. Perfect location for visiting London. All in all a great holiday had by all!
The lodges were lovely.
Great for getting to London.
This location is excellent for families wanting access to London but desiring a more laid back family environment in the Essex countryside. The lodges and park have everything you could want for a laid back holiday but close to the train station for the hustle and bustle of city life. Excellent holiday!!
Perfect site to visit London, 5 minute walk to station, peaceful and relaxing location and pleasant walks along the canal and marina. Village 10min walk, friendly pubs with good food at reasonable prices, excellent value for money.
A really enjoyable break in an excellent location only 25 minutes to London on the train would definitely stay here again.
We enjoy quiet, peaceful holidays with lovely long walks and this holiday provides just that. With the scenic river walks it was perfect.
Very comfortable accommodation with excellent cycling along the canal, easy train travel into London and the luxury of a hot tub to relax!
Located next to railway station, ideally sited for visits to London. No need to take the car. Lodges are very spacious and ideal for families and as everyone says the hot tub is great.
The accommodation was excellent, spotless and well furnished with top of the range TV and shower and a wonderful hot tub. When the hot tub temperature was accidently put down by my son the maintenance man was there within minutes to reset it. Also brilliant for catching regular trains to London with late returns.
