What we have to offer at Mersea Island

We've got some great things to do here at Mersea Island. Our park facilities are nestled neatly together by the coast and include the Muddy Duck Clubhouse, a kids outdoor play area, small arcade and an indoor swimming pool, all blessed with views of the nature reserve and beach.

We’re adjacent to Cudmore Grove Country Park, a dog walkers paradise as they have so much space to roam freely whilst you take in the fresh sea air. We are a pet friendly park with plenty of space to walk them and offer pet friendly accommodation!

Opening times for our facilities may vary depending on time of year. Please check our seasonal opening times page for more information.
