Enjoy active fun for all the family in Essex’s Lee Valley

Waltham Abbey, Essex

Explore the great outdoors on an active family holiday in Essex’s River Lee Country Park, with traffic free bike trails, farm animals and glamping.

Get the kids active and back to nature as you explore River Lee Country Park on a circular cycle ride perfect for a family holiday. See what you can spot along the way, from tufted ducks on the open water to Muntjac deer hiding amongst the trees.

Once you’ve refuelled at the Orchard Café why not experience all the fun of Lee Valley Park Farms, with plenty of fun things to do with kids. Discover the world of farming and learn about the native homes of reindeer, llamas, pygmy goats and more as you see them in their enclosures. If that’s not enough, let the kids whizz down the toboggan run in Alpine Adventure or bounce their way around Hilltop Adventure on the giant jumping pillow.

After a busy day exploring, bed down for the night at Lee Valley Caravan Site, Dobbs Weir.
