Oh, see this for a wondrous wildlife haven…Family-run since 1933, edged by Essex countryside, the Blackwater Estuary and miles of coastal walks, Osea Leisure Park is one for naturalists of all ages to retreat to. And would you Adam and Eve it, it’s only about an hour from London too.
The Osea family take the site conservation seriously and have picked up a Gold David Bellamy Award for their endeavours; they also work with Natural England and the Essex Wildlife Trust to re-establish the local saltmarsh grazing, and use Osea Meadows to graze rare-breed cattle and sheep. It all makes for a splendidly secluded and natural spot for family hols, but with coastal villages, Essex attractions, museums, boating and sailing all close by, and Colchester Zoo less than ten miles away.
Barbecues are allowed on site; you can pick up supplies in two main supermarkets about a mile away, and fast food and pizza takeaways close by. Or follow in the footsteps of most guests to the Deckhouse restaurant and bar, a short walk through the caravan park and with landscaped grounds, play area, live weekend entertainment in high season, and a large screen TV to follow all-important football matches and sports fixtures (limited open hours apply at off-peak times).
There's no shop on site, but one is at the park next to Osea a short walk away, and there are vending machines for snacks and drinks on site as well as a freezer for refreezing ice packs.

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 now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
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.
