See You at the 2018 Tendring Hundred Show?


If you think the Tendring Hundred Show is for farmers only, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, the less you know about farming the more entertaining and revealing the show is likely to be, one thing is for sure – kids love it!

About Our Tendring Hundred Show - Trade Stand C15

Situated in the village of Weeley, Homestead Caravans is well placed within easy reach of the Tendring Hundred show, close enough in fact for many Tendring Show visitors to make their way directly to our leisure showground before heading home. The show gives us a great opportunity to catch up with some familiar faces and discover some new. We'll be on hand to offer help and advice to anyone interested in learning about caravanning and outdoor leisure lifestyles. We'll also be busy promoting the varied services provided by our Swift Caravan Dealership and handing out leaflets and brochures for our Touring Park and Holiday Lodge Park, more about this below.

Swift BasecampAs of writing final arrangements for our full display have yet to be concluded but I can confirm that we will be demonstrating a selection of touring caravans from our 2018 collection including, Swift Challenger 560, Swift Eccles 635 and Swift Basecamp. The Swift Basecamp is a sporty, fun and stylish crossover caravan designed for the active adventurer. Although a little unconventional in it'a design and concept, the Basecamp is lightweight and compact enough to draw attention from, couples looking for a caravan that requires minimum storage space and easy to tow.

"Our Tendring Show caravans will be open for visitors to view inside."

We also plan to pair up a 2018 Kampa Caravan AIR Awnings with one of our demonstration caravans, as part of our Tendring Show display. The Homestead Caravans Accessory Showroom is unique in that it includes a one of a kind, dedicated Kampa Caravan Awning showroom. The showroom has an AstroTurf floor for an authentic look and holds 12 of the most popular Kampa AIR Awning models, as well as various Kampa Awning Accessories, furniture and utility tents.

Kampa is Europe's leading manufacturer of AIR Awnings producing most, if not all of the UK's best selling Inflatable Caravan and Motorhome Awnings.

Quest Elite Instant Spring Up Screen House 6In addition we'll be bringing along 2, maybe 3 Quest Elite Screen House gazebos. When set-up a Screen House takes a polygonal shape and offers practical and versatile protection form the elements, with fast spring-up set-up and various panel arrangements. A Screen House is ideal for camping and home use and a great addition to outdoor gatherings, while enjoying some barbecued food and a glass of wine.

We will also be taking some outdoor furniture to the Tendring Show, from well established brands including Kampa and Lafuma. Both these companies produce a comprehensive range of chairs and Kampa also offer a good selection of tables. Our accessory shop includes a comprehensive display of outdoor furniture, available at very keen prices.

Homestead Lake Touring Park

If you already own a leisure vehicle and are looking for a serene location to unwind and perhaps enjoy a spot of fishing, did you know Homestead Caravans has its own touring park situated a stones throw away from our Caravan dealership?

Homestead Lake Touring ParkHomestead Lake Touring Park is a small and peaceful caravan site, situated in over 25 acres of idyllic countryside, adjacent to a well established fishing lake. The touring park has 50 hard standing, fully serviced pitches, suitable for touring caravans, folding caravans, trailer tents and motorhomes (including American Rvs). Not wanting to leave anyone out, there is also a limited number of pitches for camping tents.

When you buy a new or used caravan from us you'll receive some FREE time on the park where you will be able to familiarise yourself with your new purchase. Should you need any assistance there's always someone on hand to help out – it's convenient and a great confidence booster.

Homestead Lake Lodge Park

If you're interested in Holiday Lodge ownership and dream of finding a park location that guarantees peace and quiet, Homestead Lake Country Park could be for you. The park is set in 25 acres of idyllic countryside and offers excellent fishing with a stunning, purpose build, 2 acre fishing lake. The park has been carefully designed to provide owners with the ultimate escape, free of the typical holiday park noise and distractions.

Homestead Lake Country ParkLike our Touring Park, lodges are located a short distance from our caravan dealership on the same leisure complex, although once on the park you'd never know it. We currently have a number of used lodges for sale and are currently offering availability of new plots and show homes ready to move into.

We'll have some brochures/leaflets to hand out at the Tendring Show for both parks but it's no substitute for visiting in person. Next time you visit Homestead Caravans take a look around – I'm confident you'll be glad you did.

Tendring Hundred Show Information

The Tendring Hundred Farmers’ Club was founded in 1899 with the aim of making new technical knowledge available to local farmers in an effort to improve animal breeding and stock rearing. The original inspiration of the Tendring Hundred Show was to help educate the farming community. Over 100 years later education is still very much centric to the experience, sugar coated in oodles of fun and entertainment.

Tendring Hundred Show cowsThe Tendring Hundred is a family show that brings together rural and urban communities in the Essex region. While still maintaining its agricultural roots through large displays of farm machinery and a focus on rural pastimes, the Show offers challenging and informative displays, an open air shopping experience with around 250 trade stands and exhibitors.

The Show is always a fun family day out – full of interest, entertainment, education, and local country colour – don't miss it!
