Arrival Time

Please ask an adult member of the group to call us 15 minutes prior to your arrival so we can prepare for the parking procedure for coaches.


Our address is Belchamps Scout Activity Centre, Holyoak Lane, Hawkwell, Essex, SS5 4JD. A Sat Nav may direct you down Mount Bovers Lane. You should not use this road. Instead, head down Poplars Avenue, turn left onto Woodside Chase and right onto Holyoak Lane.

Car Parking and Vehicle Access

On arrival to Belchamps there will be car parking marshals to direct you. The parking procedure for coaches is different from other vehicles, so please do not follow other vehicles. The marshals will give you instructions on where to park; please do as they ask to minimise the disruption caused. A strict 5mph speed limit applies.

Parking Procedure

Marshals will direct you to drive in front of reception and then reverse down the side of the building. Please see the map below for a visual example.
