Summer holidays at our caravan and campsite in essex

Pack up those shorts, remember your flip flops – and don’t forget the sun cream! Yes, summer is finally here! And you can make the most of the sun, sea and sand at our caravan and campsite in Essex.

Waldegraves is the number one choice for summer family holidays with a huge range of things to do on-park, including fishing, football golf, crazy golf, pitch and putt and our outdoor swimming pool.

We’ve also got a great range of live entertainment in the peak summer weeks, from comedy to some of the stars of television, all performing for you.

Our location is also pretty special. Make the most of the summer sun and explore beautiful Mersea Island, with its beaches, attractions, nature reserve and great places to eat and drink. You can even bring your boat and jetski and make use of our slipway for hours of fun on the water at high tide!
