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, naturally; you can pick up supplies in Asda and Tesco about a mile away, and fast food and pizza takeaways are close by too. Or follow in the footsteps of most guests to the park's Deckhouse restaurant and bar, with landscaped grounds, children's play area, live weekend entertainment in high season, and a large screen TV to follow all-important football matches and sports fixtures.
Please note that the clubhouse and restaurant are only open on Friday night, all day Saturday and all day Sunday during low season and outside school holidays.
Bookings from single-sex parties of more than three, or from unaccompanied persons under the age of 18, are not accepted.
