Ideal for a quiet family retreat, situated by the sea
Celebrating over 90 year of camping
Fen Farm Caravan and Camping Site is ideal for people looking for a quiet family retreat. It is situated by the sea and close to a country park in a small village on Mersea Island. There are 90 fully serviced static owner occupied caravans on the park, as well as plenty of room for tourers, tents or motorhomes of any size. The Farm has been owned by the Lord family since 1918 and the first tents were pitched in 1923, so the park has grown rather than been developed.
With no club and no pool, people who come to Fen Farm do so for the tranquil atmosphere and children often surprise themselves by finding an occupation that does not involve anything being switched on or booted up! There are always the play areas with swings, seesaws, climbing frames etc. In addition to this children enjoy playing on the beach or in the sea. We also have an open field for ball games, flying kites or just walking the dog.
Wildlife at Fen Farm
We have had the David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award since 1999, for the work we have done to protect the environment in and around the campsite. We are working to encourage Red Squirrels to our copse.
Award Winning Loos!
The toilet block was designed with conservation in mind with solar powered water heating (backed up with gas when necessary). Sun pipes provide light in the daytime. We have been awarded Platiunum from the Loo of the Year awards since 2010. An important part of the block is the wheelchair accessible toilet and shower, as well as the family toilet and shower room. There is also a laundry room with coin operated washing machines, tumble driers and iron along with a freezer for ice blocks and sinks for washing up. Recently we have received the Market Sector Award from the Loo of the Year for Holiday Parks.
Bring your Dog on Holiday too
Dogs are welcome and there are dog walks, with bins, all around the park. There are also many footpath walks nearby as well as a dog friendly beach. (There is a maximum 3 dogs per unit).
