  • "Had a lovely weeks stay at this delightful caravan."

    It has everything you need for a comfortable well equipped stay, just two minutes walk to the beach. The caravan was really clean and modern with the bonus of WiFi. The site itself has a nice restaurant, well equipped shop and fun activities such as an outdoor pool (summer months only), arcade, crazy golf, pitch and putt, football golf, and pool table. Paul, the caravan owner, met us on arrival. He was really friendly, showing us around the caravan (having prepared a lovely welcome pack) then left us to settle in with the reassurance he was on hand if needed. The best welcome we've had in our years of self catering. Thanks Paul!

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    On arrival, Paul and wife met us and showed us around. It was great having welcome goodies of local fresh strawberrries, bread, butter and a pint of milk. The caravan is well equipped, clean and had everything we needed. The caravan is situated just a few yards from the beach, this went down well with my children who enjoyed chilling by the beach everyday. The evening breeze and the sound of the tide/waves from the sea during the evenings while sitting by the decking with a glass of wine was memorable for me. We will definitely be back, for a longer period!!

    Thanks for your wonderful feedback, very glad you all had a great time. Look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

The property

Mersea Island 1.8 miles.

Situated on a seaside resort in the Waldegraves Holiday Park in Essex is Caravan, a contemporary, single-storey lodge perfect for a family of four.

Off-road parking is available on arrival, with a space next to the lodge making it easy to unload.

Make your way through into the holiday home via the wraparound decking and into the open-plan living space which makes the perfect social hub; the space fit with a gas oven and hob, an array of cooking appliances, a dining area for planning your days out, and a sitting area to cosy up in front of the electric fire while you watch a film.

From here, the bedrooms offer storage for your belongings and a place to rest your head; choose from a king-size with an en-suite shower room for extra privacy, or a twin, ideal for children.

Completing the interior is a shared shower room with a walk-in shower and a toasty heated towel rail.

When you're not enjoying setting on the decking in the warmer months, why not take advantage of the on-site amenities, such as the family games room, play areas, and restaurant, or perhaps make your way to the beach for a sunset stroll.

There's so much to do on the site, you will be spoilt for choice; avid fishers of the group can spend a day with their rod in-hand, while swimmers lap about in the indoor heated swimming pool and the sporty family members enjoy a game of UK Footgolf and the little ones play in the parks.

Outside of the site, head into Colchester for wealth of shopping and dining opportunities, as well as attractions including Colchester Castle, the largest Norman castle in Europe, Highwoods Country Park, and for a truly unique experience, don't miss the Natural History Museum where you can learn all about the area's fascinating wildlife.

Bring your loved ones to Caravan for a memorable break in Essex.
