Out and About

The seaside town of Southend on Sea is only a short drive away. 


Also within 10 minutes drive is the Lakeside Shopping Mall. A little further afield is Bluewater Shopping Centre and Basildon Festival Park which all have vast array of shops, restaurants and cinemas. 


The beautiful Thorndon Park with its extensive woods, horse trails and bike trails are within a 5 minute drive. 

Local to the Retreat Lodges is conservation and adventure parks such as Stubbers, Cely Woods and Davey Down. The main towns of Brentwood and Upminster are also on your door step.

There is also an 18 hole golf course and a fishing lake both within 3 minutes of the Retreat Holiday Park, so something for every one to enjoy every day of the week !
