Set on a private beach and surrounded by peaceful countryside, Mersea Island Holiday Park has some first class facilities including an outdoor heated pool, live family entertainment, adventure play area and an on-site clubhouse.

Mersea Island is the most easterly inhabited island in the UK and is full of coastal gems like mudflats, salt marshes and native oysters.

From the private beach to the park's own boat launching facilities, Mersea Island Holiday Park is the perfect family holiday. The outdoor heated swimming pool is a real bonus, and you'll also find tennis courts, as well as an on-site bakery, shop and launderette.

The park has a good selection of two and three bedroom caravans including the Luxury Caravan 8 which has one double and two twin bedrooms.

Essex is a county full of contrasts - there are some brilliant seaside resorts but also miles of unspoilt coastline and countryside. And there's lots to see and do in the local area with museums at Colchester and Ipswich and great shopping at Braintree.

Fun Days Out in Essex

Colchester Zoo

No visit to Essex is complete without a day at this popular zoo with over 250 species of animals. The enclosures are well maintained and the zoo provides a good habitat for the animals there.  The 60 acres of parkland and lakes are ideal for walking round and we are sure this day out will provide you with lasting enjoyable memories.   Some of the highlights include penguins which you can see swimming at Penguin Shores, and the elephants at Spirit of Africa.  In addition there are over 30 daily shows to attend.

Adventure Island

This attraction is actually free of charge to enter which we think is excellent.  Located on the Southend Seafront there are over 50 rides and attractions to enjoy.  For the very daring there is a 75ft roller coaster with a more than vertical drop- not for the faint hearted!  Other highlights include the Dragon's Claw, Vortex, Scorpion, Ramba Zamba and Sky Drop.  Younger children will also find plenty of more gentle rides and attractions to keep them entertained.

Great Notley Discovery Centre
A day at Great Notley Discovery Centre and Park is a fantastic way to explore the very best of Essex offering many facilities including a sensory trail, visitor centre, bistro and cycle hire centre. There are links to  over 15 miles of walking and cycling paths on the Flitch Way too. Those with young children can rent a trailer or tandem bike to make exploring fun for the whole family.

Lovely park have stayed here before highly recommend
Diana
Wonderfully clean caravan. Staff very helpful and friendly. Only reason I gave low mark for surrounding was because of the muddy field we had to cross to access the club house. Would have been nice to have a path of some sort but instead we sunk in the muddy fields as it had been raining. Overall, it was a perfect holiday, thank you
Annette

Jackdeo
An ideal location for a peaceful holiday.
Pat
Great welcome on arrival and helpful staff throughout. Dog friendly with a much appreciated welcome pack for our furry friend. Caravan was clean and fresh, although signs of wear this did not detract from enjoyment or comfort. Mersea Island too had some interesting places to visit, and the site was not far from Colchester too. We were on a short break so did not find the visits too repetitive.
Sarah
A lovely clean and tidy Park. Caravan was exceptional and felt like home from home. The grounds were well cared for and all the staff really friendly. Will stay again.
Sally
Had a fab time. Have booked another 2 mini breaks already.
