What Maldon offers for Cottage Breaks

Maldon is a fascinating small old town in Essex. It is a seriously good place to live and for days out.  It experiences a large influx of visitors during the summer, out for strolls in the park and the quayside where the London barges are moored and for meals at the pubs overlooking the quayside. 

Maldon's Promenade ParkMaldon is highly recommended as a base for any family self catering holiday because there is so much to do and see locally and in nearby surrounding areas.  Promenade Park is every child's favourite spot, especially during the summer. A large adventure pirate ship stands in a massive sand pit where children climb and slide all day long. Adjacent to it is an outdoor water park for splashing and water jets. A maze is a good place for family hide and seek. There is a small fun fair,  boating lake, field for picnics, cafes and at varying times bouncy castles, hamster balls to roll around in and boat trips on the river.

Along the road from the park is Madison Heights, a family leisure centre with ten pin bowling, snooker, enormous soft play area and cafe. 

Maldon is an old historic town and one of the best ways of viewing it is on the ghost walk which takes people to the Blue Boar, Maldon's oldest pub and various other historic buildings where nasty events occurred.

A good number of indepenedent shops feature in the high street. The fish and chip shops are convenient for day trippers and holidaymakers. 

Heybridge Basin is to the north side of Maldon and is a good place to visit if you like boats and walks along a tow path. Bikers often arrive for breakfast or lunch at one of the pubs and walkers meet to begin a walk through the Essex countryside. There is a car park that can get busy in the height of summer. 

New Hall vineyard, just south of Maldon, in Purleigh is open for wine tasting and tours.  Buy a bottle or two of English wine to enjoy during your self catering holiday in Maldon.  There are walks at Danbury Lakes, an open farm and small zoo in South Woodham Ferres, RHS gardens at Hyde Hall, Chelmsford and Colchester for serious shopping, theatres and nights out. 

The seaside is never very far away from anywhere in Essex. If you stay in a holiday cottage near Maldon, both Southend on Sea and Clacton are within easy driving distance. Book a country cottage, house or log cabin near Maldon for an activity-filled family holiday.
