It’s a tad ironic that St Osyth is the driest destination in the UK, because Seawick Holiday Park is teeming with things to do in wet weather. Park Holidays have categorised this as one of their ‘active and fun’ sites for families and there’s lashings to do for all ages: the Loopy kids’ clubs for ages 5—14, an indoor amusement arcade with pool tables, and The Venue, Seawick’s vibrant entertainment complex complete with free WiFi and live acts. The basics are well looked after too, with a mini mart store for provisions and a launderette on site.
Guests can also use the facilities at the neighbouring Park Holiday sites: there’s a heated indoor pool at St Osyth Beach next door and a fully stuffed fishing lake at Oaklands. You won’t even have to dash out for provisions – the Essex Seagull Bar & Grill dishes up food and shows live sport on the big screens, and there was a new 1950s-style café added in 2012.
But as it’s the sunshine coast, there’s plenty on hand outdoors too: bumper cars and an adventure playground at the park for starters, and once the sun’s shining it’s only a short stroll or a quick road train trip to the sands at St Osyth – and just a few miles to the pier and fairground at Clacton-on-Sea.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the M25, junction 28, take the A12 (signposted Colchester). Continue forward onto the Colchester bypass (signposted Colchester North, Ipswich, Harwich). At junction 29 branch left (signposted Colchester North) then at the next take the second exit on to the A1232 (signposted Colchester). Continue forward and straight across the first roundabout; at the second roundabout turn left on to the A133 (signposted Clacton). Follow the A133 and cross over the next two roundabouts, then at the third roundabout turn right onto the B1028. Take the left-hand fork, the B1027 and follow signs for St Osyth.
As well as the pier and funfair, Clacton-on-Sea has golf, two theatres and an annual airshow with vintage planes including Spitfires and Hurricanes; shake the sand from your toes at St Osyth too and have a look around its twelfth century priory and the war museum at the Martello tower.
This is bird and beast as well as beach terrain, with acres of nature reserves all over Essex and rare sightings of birds: Howlands Marsh and Colne Point are both within easy reach of Seawick – head to the latter to see nesting little terns or hark at the nightingales at Fingringhoe Wick overlooking the Colne Estuary.
There are wildlife gardens at Langdon Nature Reserve inland and to the west of Clacton; for formal beds and borders the Beth Chatto Gardens at Colchester have regular events, workshops and fairs. Colchester in general is a must-see as England’s oldest recorded town: try on togas at Colchester Castle Museum and take the Lost Madagascar Express’ road train at Colchester Zoo.
Outside Essex, the Suffolk Heritage Coastline is a quick drive away with three RSPB reserves, sandy cliffs and seaside towns and villages such as Aldeburgh, Orford and Southwold. Hardy souls can follow the 50-mile Suffolk Coast Path to Lowestoft starting from Felixstowe a little way along the coast from Seawick.
