Escape to the coast and enjoy a break on the beautiful Mersea Island at Waldegraves Family Holiday Park. From luxury holiday caravans to great-value touring and camping pitches, there’s something for everyone at our holiday park. Guests can enjoy well-maintained standard grass pitches or a limited selection of hard-standing and serviced pitches, some with hedges to offer a greater level of privacy during your stay. For a holiday or short break with all the comforts of home, stay in one of our luxury caravan holiday homes, fully equipped for your perfect family break. Dogs are welcome on site on leads and have their own exercise area. Park has an outdoor heated swimming pool (open May- September, weather permitting), clubhouse with licensed bar and private sandy beach. Park characters Sammy Seagull & Bonnie Boxer can be found entertaining guests with the entertainment team. Guests can enjoy a home cooked meal in The Granary Restaurant and shop on site at The Wheatgrain. There is always plenty to catch in our well-stocked lakes, or try sea fishing instead. For golf enthusiasts we have 10 bay undercover golf driving range, 18 hole grass pitch & putt, 9 hole crazy golf and FootGolf course.

A curious looking place at first, approached by a long tarmac drive past all sorts of odd businesses, but at the end is a collection of small barn-style buildings which include a restaurant and pub. Good choice of food, efficient friendly service and very fair prices.

We are here on holiday for half term and my daughter's birthday. I rang Glenn who heads up the entertainment team and asked if we could bring some extra friends along and take part in one of the kids' activities - on the day I wanted it was Make a Bear which was perfect.
