We decided last minute that we wanted to go camping. With grown up children who live away from home, we wanted somewhere not too far from all of us, coming from 3 different counties. This site came ou... read more »

We were at the campsite for 5 days and the first 3 were great. We were told the back field was quieter so set up in the far corner (and this was true - louder groups were near the gate). The site is s... read more »
We had high hopes for Osea on recommendation from a friend and I can see almost all of our expectations being realised and in most cases exceeded. Great site, great location, friendly welcome and gene... read more »

Just returned home from a fab bank holiday weekend at Osea Leisure Park. Outstanding campsite with good facilities but could do with a little onsite shop.
We booked a Tipi and were really looking forward to our stay. Unfortunately their booking system created an error which meant we were contacted a day before arrival to say that it had been double booked. We were offered the Shepherds Hut as an alternative so took this option open minded. Despite the concept having great potential it is somewhat flawed. There is the convenience of a toilet and running water, plus the hob, but there is no pull out table or practical surface to use should you get typical English weather like we did. Really the hut is a nicely presented shed but lacks the space or practicality as offered by other camping options when the sun isn't shining. With regards to the campsite in general there could be better recycling bin facilities and the shower block is small so be prepared to wait for facilities during peak seasons. The bar is ok and we were delighted to win £4.00 on the quiz machine but it decided not to give us the money, so I spoke to management who said nothing but “yes, people have said that to me before, sorry, nothing I can do as I would have to call the company”. He then went over and turned the machine off at the wall and that was that. Perhaps it is better to remove the machine or offer some gesture of goodwill if it does ‘happen a lot’ not react with a negative attitude towards his customer. To add lastly we tried to send a few emails to let them know how disappointed we were with the mix up, being as polite as possible and we didn't receive one apology until we got through to the site manager himself. We didn't get offered anything for their mistake apart from an ‘upgrade’ to a shed when it was the tipi experience we were really looking forward to. Overall I wouldn't particularly recommend a stay with other options in the area, particularly on Mersea Island.
Perfect for a first family camping experience, left feeling we might have been a bit spoilt by the facilities when we try out some other sites.
Stayed there for a week amazing my family went to the pub great lots of games to do
