Breath in the countryside
Thorpe-le-Soken is a picturesque village, set in beautiful rolling countryside and offers some great walks with spectacular views and a plethora of wildlife and flora to be found.
Within easy walking distance of the campsite there are over 11 miles of public footpaths and one bridleway. When these routes are linked with the public footpaths in other neighbouring parishes, they can complete a circular route.
Thorpe-le-Soken Parish council recently published the Parish Map which is not only a useful map for the village, but also features the public footpath network. You can download a copy below or pick up a hard copy in the campsite office.
All users of the footpaths are requested to stick to the paths and not wander through the local farmers fields. Public Footpaths and Rights of Way are largely maintained by local landowners in Partnership with Essex County Council and the Parish Council.
