A BIG warm welcome!

5th February 2016 Published by


I am pleased to share some exciting news about your holiday park. Cosways has become part of the Away Resorts family of British holiday parks and we want to tell you all about what that means
for the future.

Most important of all…

Cosways has a special heritage and atmosphere and we’re going to keep that safe and sound. We just want to make the park even better. So please don’t worry about things changing!

A bit about us

As a business, we believe in British holiday parks. We love everything about them. In fact, they run in our blood. My own grandfather ran some of Britain’s best known holiday camps,
as did my father. Back when I was a kid I spent all my holidays on British holiday parks and loved every minute so it was natural for me to go into the holiday park business. Interestingly I actually
lived just across the estuary in Wivenhoe for several years so I really have a soft spot for the region.
Our company Away Resorts now run five holiday parks round Britain, from the Isle of Wight to North Wales. At each park we’ve injected new ideas and tons of fun – things like archery, face
painting, water slides, West End quality stage shows, top cabaret, comedy and music. We make a point of creating a happy, friendly ‘village atmosphere’ which means people keep coming back
each year.

So what can you expect?

We love the peace and space of the park on Mersea Island and that’s definitely not going to change. But we’re keen to improve the facilities, and we’re also planning some fun family activities
for the summer. Maybe a hog roast, outdoor cinema under the stars and some exclusive owner events.

A new name

We’ve decided to change the name of the park from Cosways to Away Resorts Mersea Island. We love the surrounding area and want the park name to represent the Mersea Island region.
We’re determined to make this holiday park an even more special place to relax and enjoy your time off. And we’re looking forward to meeting you in person.

All the best,

Carl Castledine
