The property

Perched on the popular Dovercourt Haven Caravan Park in Harwich, Essex, is the contemporary two-bedroom, Dovercourt Lodge.

Enjoying fabulous surroundings which offer a wealth of on-site facilities including an indoor pool, on-site bar, restaurant and shop and an entertainment venue, as well as just being moment’s away from the coast, Dovercourt Lodge is a superb dwelling for couples or a family of four.

Leave your vehicle in the off-road parking space before being greeted by a delightful wrap around decking with furniture, ideal for savouring your morning coffee or indulging in a spot of alfresco dining.

Step into the stylish open-plan living space, where the chef of the group will have all they need in the well-equipped kitchen, which includes a handy dishwasher and washing machine, to conjure up delicious feasts, ready to enjoy at the dining table over a celebratory bottle of fizz.

After dinner, take your favourite tipple over to the sitting room, where you can relax on the plush seating in front of the warming electric fire and select your favourite film from the Smart TV.

Wash away the day with a soak in the bath or refreshing shower in the well-appointed bathroom, before choosing from two beautifully decorated bedrooms to catch your rest in, a double with TV and en-suite shower room and a twin, both with ample storage for your belongings.

In the morning, take advantage of the facilities available right on your doorstep with a dip in the pool, a game of crazy golf, dinner and drinks in the welcoming bar and restaurant, a fun-filled evening in the entertainment venue or picking up essentials in the well-stocked mini mart.

If you can tear yourself away, head straight for the golden sands of Dovercourt Beach, where you can bathe, paddle the shores or hire a kayak or canoe to take to the waters of Dovercourt Bay.

Continue through the town, where you can test out your swing at the excellent Harwich & Dovercourt Golf Club, hook your catch of the day along Stone Pier, or visit the historic 19th-century Harwich Redoubt Fort.

Wildlife enthusiasts will have found their haven with the Wrabness Nature Reserve and RSPB Stour Estuary nearby.

The popular coastal town of Clacton-on-Sea is definitely worth a visit, with its fabulous sandy beach, pier side aquarium and two fantastic theatres.

Further afield is Colchester, where you will find ample shopping opportunities, the remarkable 12th-century castle with jail, the fascinating ruins of Balkerne Gate and the superb National Trust site of Bourne Mill.

There is so much to see and do with a stay at Platinum Lodge 2 Bed Dovercourt.

About the location


Clacton-on-Sea 15 miles; Colchester 17 miles

This historic port town sits at the mouth of the River Stour in Essex. Adjoining Dovercourt, Harwich benefits from a wide range of amenities from convenience stores to harbourside restaurants, one of which is named after the famous diarist, Samuel Pepys, who was MP for the town in 1679. It also boasts a series of fascinating architecture, a golf club and a sandy beach to keep you occupied throughout your visit. Just 15 miles away is the popular seaside town of Clacton-on-Sea, hosting a beach and a pier for a quintessentially English day by the sea. For premium shopping, head to Colchester slightly further afield, as is the idyllic Dedham Vale AONB, made famous by the artist John Constable; making this location perfect for all tastes.
