  • Secluded site an hour from London
  • Across the estuary from Osea Island
  • Fishing spots, pool, playground, amusement arcade, café and bar

It’s hard to believe that Steeple Bay Holiday Park is just an hour from London; this tucked-away corner of the Essex coast feels fably remote, with its far-reaching watery vistas and backwaters that teem with birds.

Guests here can congratulate themselves on having impeccable taste: the seclusion of this spot makes it a firm favourite with the rich and famous, who can sometimes be spotted touching down in their helicopters for a stay on Osea Island, just across the estuary of the River Blackwater. Take a boat out from Steeple Bay’s slipway and who knows who you might bump into as you navigate the peaceful creeks surrounding the site...

Steeple Bay Holiday Park has a good-sized, heated outdoor pool with a separate splash pool for those still sporting armbands - and the pretty grounds contain some great spots for fishing, a playground and a sports field (ideal for working off any excesses in the café and Riverside Bar).

As it’s a Park Holidays site, Steeple Bay guests also benefit from a fun selection of activities for children in the Loopy Club; the kids’ shows and competitions run into the early evening, and thereafter you’ll find bingo, live music and more in the clubhouse during the holiday season. There’s also an amusements arcade for rainy days.

As for the basics, these are well covered too: you’ll find good showers and loos, a sheltered washing-up area, a launderette, small shop and free wifi in the clubhouse.
