About
Description
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 More 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. Less
