There are many special things about Fen Farm; we have beautiful fields filled with wildlife, a sandy beach with clean sea close by, superb toilet facilities, and peace and quiet. We don’t have a clubhouse, so if you are looking to get away from it all then you have found the right place.
Our pitches are very spacious and there’s plenty of electric hook-ups, wifi, and enough space for you to pitch with friends or have your own privacy.
Family-run Fen Farm is ideal for people looking for a quiet family retreat. We have two play areas and a field ready for a game of rounders or cricket, plus a woodland area that is great for hide and seek, not to mention the beach, the sea and the country park next door There’s so much to do, you won’t be bored at Fen Farm.
You'll find a pub just a few minutes' walk away and a shop next door. Larger shops, takeaways and famous seafood restaurants are only a short drive away in West Mersea.
Come to Fen Farm to discover a hidden gem on the East Anglian coast.

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.
