When you really want to get away from it all, Coopers Beach Holiday Park on Mersea Island is the place to visit. As soon as you approach via the causeway, you know it’s going to be a holiday to remember! Estuary views, alfresco dining and heaps of activities await.

Nature lovers and beach enthusiasts will both be in their element, with traditional seaside activities such as crabbing and walks to the Blackwater Estuary to watch the migrating birds on offer. You’ll find plenty of fantastic attractions nearby.

On park, you’ll be able to enjoy direct beach access – there’s even a boat launching facility if you fancy taking to the water. Work up an appetite in the newly refurbished outdoor swimming pool before tucking into a tasty family meal at The Boathouse Bar & Restaurant while enjoying spectacular sea view.

Overall good value for a week at under £500.00 (end of season) Facilities were a little hit and miss (availability of some dishes and CO2 for the beer pumps!)

Not the fault of the Park though, I suspect COVID-19, and the current issues with short staffing had a lot to do with this rather than the park itself

I booked this holiday at the last minute and have to say it more than met my expectations, came back home feeling relaxed and chilled out

Only issues were that two doors in our lodge would not shut properly and there wasn’t much choice on the menu at the Boathouse Bar. Bit out of the way. Not much to do on the island.
