Excellent site with clean facilities and friendly staff – Guest on Pitchup.com
We both loved the entertainment and especially the fishing. My 6 year old caught a 10 and a half pound leather carp on light tackle with a single maggot. The bailiff witnessed and weighed it for us with some other anglers. He was a gent and great at his job. Sammy the seagull was also a hit with my son. The pitches were clean and tidy with lots of space. And the check in was so quick. we only stayed 2 nights but will definitely be returning for longer.
First time camping – Guest on Tripadvisor
My husband and I took our children camping here. It was the first time we had been camping and did not know what to expect.
We were very pleasantly surprised, staff were extremely helpful, facilities were excellent, showers toilets etc were beautifully clean.
We will definitely be visiting again.
In a quiet corner – Guest on Tripadvisor
In a quiet corner of Essex on the coast over a causeway is Mersea Island. On the Island is Waldegraves Holiday Park right by the Blackwater Estuary, coastal paths, plenty sandy beaches and mudflats for us a pleasant unexpected find. Good holiday lets, all you need on site or explore on foot easily into West or East Mersea – we will go again.
Howard Starkie – Google reviews
21 years ago we went to your site and enjoyed ourselves, last week we returned to the site for a week in our caravan. The changes were very impressive and your staff were excellent especially in the dinning area and shop. We would like to say thank you to all the staff from reception right through to the cleaners who made us welcome and kept the site nice and tidy. I was talking to the people who were camping around us and all we could get was good feed back. We will be returning at some point.
Absolutely great – Guest on Tripadvisor
To be perfectly honest it was the best holiday we have had in the UK. We had a luxury caravan with decking perfect for our labradoodle, we were second from the beach and just behind the pub and shop. The site is perfect, outside heated pool (so clean) with lots of seating area to just relax, the beach has soft clean sand and when the sea is in well amazing. There was one downfall for us which was quite upsetting we wanted to stay another week but they were full! I fully recommend Waldergraves, enjoy we did.
Good quality caravans & facilities – Guest on Tripadvisor
We were part of a large group of over 120 people, including juniors (aged between 9-12 years old), visiting a local rugby team in April 2017, staying for two nights.
We stayed in the static caravan area so I cannot comment on the pitches, and other than ourselves the site was not particularly busy.
The facilities on site were excellent, with a supermarket, restaurant, separate large bar, which is divided into two -a ‘louder’ events lounge, and quieter area (when your ears need some respite), an arcade for the kids (bring lots of cash!), kids play and climbing area, and a decent sized sheltered swimming pool.
The management went out of their way to accommodate us, allocating a dedicated field so we could bring in an external company to arrange an ‘adventure day’. Food was always served quickly and was of a good quality, and the choice of beers was decent. The entertainment, was pretty good, with a solo female singer on the Friday night, and on the Saturday both a magician (for the kids) and later a double act who played a good range of 80’s hits (for the parents).
The caravan we stayed in was a ‘Platinum’ grade and was very modern and clean, with all the facilities you need for a weekend away, including full heating, gas hob, oven, microwave, cups, glasses, plates etc. and a decent size lounge with a TV and fire. Six of us (three adults and three 10 year old kids) shared a caravan with three bedrooms. This was made up of a decent sized main bedroom with a double bed and en-suite, whilst the other two rooms were very small, with very narrow beds and limited storage for bags (just fitted under the beds). These rooms were suitable for children, less so for adults, however, we understood this before booking, and managed.
All in I would recommend this site.
“Family get together” – Guest on Tripadvisor
My wife and I were impressed with both the standard of accommodation and the friendliness of the site staff. We were also very thankful for the welcome pack consisting of things required after a long journey.
“Fantastic weekend spent at Waldegraves” – Guest on Tripadvisor
This was our first trip to Waldegraves and we will definitely be going back. Great vans, great staff, brilliant entertainment team. Cannot recommend enough. We stayed in a Platinum van and the little extra touches were great.
Ausra – Caravansitefinder.com reviews
Great touring facilities, dog friendly site, enjoyed walking routes and outside swimming pool. As the weather was brilliant there was no need to leave the park, everything what you need for your holiday was on site. Also good price food in the restaurant
