Waterside Holiday Park is a landscaped family park on the edge of St Lawrence Bay near Southminster in Essex, with views across to tidal Mersea Island, easy estuary access (you can go crabbing right at the bottom of the park) and proximity to Bradwell beach and the Essex coast. The seaside at Southend is about an hour’s drive away and the city of Colchester with its zoo within 11 miles.

Come here with the kids if you want a rurally Essex retreat but also plenty of things to do on tap: Waterside has kids’ clubs and an adventure playground to keep small folk entertained while their elders steam away in the spa pool and sauna.

All are alongside the Water’s Edge Tavern for live family entertainment and a small indoor pool, amusements and a pool table and darts to prevent restlessness on a rainy day. Entertainment and pool access are included in your pitch price.

A diner and takeaway are on site for meals and a fully-stocked convenience store is to hand for groceries. Other facilities include a launderette, covered dishwashing area, shower and loo block, hairdryer hire (essential) and a boat launching ramp – should you be so lucky...

This site is a member of Parkdean Resorts group.
