Cross the Blackwater Estuary onto Mersea Island in Essex and you are in a different world, a world where you can be your best, most carefree self. As you unwind, take time to explore and discover all the hidden gems that the island has to offer, with Mersea Island Holiday Park as your tranquil base.
Dine on local shellfish at the West Mersea Oyster Bar, seek out the coloured beach huts or take a dip in our lovely indoor swimming pool to refresh your body and soul. And for refreshment of a different kind, head over to the local vineyard for some of England’s finest wines and gins. With historic Colchester only a short drive away, there is so much to explore that you’ll wonder why you’ve never heard of this hidden gem before.
Right next door to Cudmore Grove National Park which has a spectacular private beach, Mersea Island Holiday Park is paradise for dogs too, and we’re ready to welcome you and your four-legged friends for a holiday to remember, far from the madding crowd. Once you have discovered Mersea Island and enjoyed the hospitality of our team of Holiday Heroes, we’re sure you’ll want to come back time and time again!
