Entertainment and Activities

Our entertainment and activities include a full family entertainment programme from our team of entertainers and visiting cabarets, pool tables and family games room for the kids, bar and kids club. Lets not forget the outdoor swimming pool great for keeping the children entertained. For the adults Live Sky Sports.

Fishing Lakes

Four well stocked lakes offer the angler a fine facility which is rarely matched. The lakes are stocked full of top quality Carp, Bream, Tench, Roach, Rudd, Perch and Gudgeon. Fully managed, a permanent bailiff ensures that the fish and their environments are always maintained to the highest standard. The lakes have recently been improved with new swims added!

Sea fishing from the beach is also very popular with our guests. Tackle and bait for both freshwater and sea angling are available from the fishing tackle section of The Wheatgrain shop, on site at Mersea Island, Essex.

Luxury Holiday Homes

Many of our guests prefer to rent one of our three bedroom, luxury holiday homes, for their holiday. These are all up to date and well appointed with a choice of Platinum, Gold or Silver gradings. Two of these homes are fully wheelchair accessible.

We have an 18 Hole Golf Pitch & Putt Course, 10 Bay undercover golf driving range and Crazy Golf course on the park.

The Granary Restaurant on the park offers Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner as well as Take Away 7 days a week and can also cater for private functions and special occasions.

just had two weeks in our touring caravan pitch was quite big, site is kept very clean toilets cleaned at least 4 times a day showers could do with a lick of paint but other wise clean other reviews say noisy holiday makers to me it was people just relaxing and having a good time I would go back but the only thing that puts me off is that you have to travel far to visit anywhere. would also like to say we had a meal in the restaurant and it was really nice and very generous helpings.

This is a lovely site and the staff are so friendly and helpful. The food in the Granary is lovely, plentiful and a good price. The shop stocks everything you could need. A huge effort has been made on the site with regard to the planting of trees and shrubs, and it's close to a lovely beach. We took our motorhome there on our very first outing, and we will definitely be back there again.

Well, where do I start, obviously no one can be responsible for the rain or the weather but the drainage system at this park is terrible one night we had 12 hours of constant trapicl type rain and we ended up totally bogged in, our tent was sitting on no other than a BOG. Yet not one member of staff came to see if they could help and yet we were the only tent left standing on the field. The showers, well if you want to wash yourself, your clothes and your shoes thats fine you can do it all in one because there was not a shower curtain to be found on the site, apparently, they had some visitors who decided to use the shower curtain as toilet paper so they throw them off the site and removed on the shower curtains SO all other guests then had to suffer not only the water on themselves but also all over their clothes etc.

We were charged for High Season (JULY) and yet the take away was shut the Pool was shut and there was no entertainment in the club house when we asked about it we were told that did not start until the six weeks holiday (Errrrr childrens Six weeks holiday) ????? If they cannot open to full capacity then they should not be charging full High season prices. Especially as the facilities were far below avarage anyway. We cut our holiday short by 6 days due to the fact that the ground was water logged and our tent was sitting on what can only be described as a BOG, the receptionist said that the owner would not refund us our money but would give us a cridit for 5 days to return again when we wanted "YEAH RIGHT" Just make sure you don't ask for Pitch 64 Bad memories lol A full official complaint will be sent about this.
