Motorhome, Campervan & Caravan Hire In Essex

Camplify is the fastest growing peer-to-peer caravan hire and motorhome rental community in the UK. We connect local owners of static caravans, touring caravans, campervans, motorhomes and trailer tents with holidaymakers seeking to experience the joys of camping in Essex.

Essex has a great deal to offer for RV holidays. It’s easily accessed from London, so if you live in the capital it’s easy to arrange Essex motorhome hire and then get a train from London. If you live elsewhere in the UK, an Essex holiday is hugely convenient for getting into London for the day in your RV.

But that doesn’t mean there’s little to see in Essex. This is a lovely and often overlooked county, in eastern England with lots of green countryside, beaches and seaside towns, and the longest coast of any county in England. Colchester is a beautiful old town that was once the capital of Roman Britain and later added an 11th-century castle with the biggest surviving Norman keep in Europe. Market towns such as Chelmsford and Maldon are perfect for shopping days and for sampling local produce, while coastal days are easy accessible at Southend-on-Sea and Frinton-on-Sea.

Other highlights among the many top destinations in Essex include Epping Forest, a former royal forest covering almost 6,000 acres of woodland, protected conservation areas and trails for horse riding, rambling and mountain biking. The forest also has around 100 lakes and ponds, 24 of which are suitable for fishing. Get off the beaten track on an Essex holiday at Mersea Island, the ancient tidal island in the Blackwater and Colne estuaries where oysters have been farmed since Roman times.

Also have a look at historic sites such as Tilbury Fort, constructed by Henry VIII; and Waltham Abbey, said to be the burial place of King Harold. Audley End House at Saffron Walden is another good option for vintage sightseeing, followed by a walk around Saffron Walden and an attempt at the turf maze at Walden Castle.
