Waldegraves Family Holiday Park is located on the beautiful Mersea Island, 10 miles South of Colchester in North Essex. Overlooking the Blackwater Estuary, Waldegraves has its own private beach which is a mix of sand and shingle.
Whether you have a tent, tourer or motorhome you will be impressed with our touring and camping facilities. Our pitches are highly maintained and have all the space you need to enjoy the great outdoors! Arrival for our pitches is any time after 3pm and departure is any time before 1pm.
There are 5 large non-electric camping fields with many options. You can choose to pitch by the beautiful lake, close to the seafront or even near the fishing lakes. Large groups are welcome, subject to availability. Serviced pitches are designed for any type of tourer, tent or motorhome. They have their own electric hook up points and water points on each pitch. We also have a limited number of hardstanding pitches, which are partially gravel and grass for your convenience. When booking, please notify us of the size of your tourer, tent or motorhome so that we can allocate you a suitable pitch. The maximum occupancy on our pitches is up to 6 people, 4 people are included in your pitch price.
