Waldegraves Farm originally started as a pig farm and at one time there were more than 3000 pigs grazing on the land which has become the setting for many family holidays over the years.

Waldegraves Family Holiday Park is a family run business that has been trading for over 70 years. It started with Jack Lord in the 1940’s who then passed it on to his son David Lord who developed the park into what you see today.

Waldegraves is located on Mersea Island, famous for its Oysters and beautiful scenery. Tourists visit the local town of Colchester and can easily travel from London and the South East. We are offering family holidays from camping to luxury caravan breaks, activities for all the family and the choice of fun packed or tranquil locations. Families can make their holiday last a lifetime by owning their own holiday home caravan.

We are passionate about providing all of our customers with memorable family holidays and we strive to achieve a level of service that exceeds our customer’s expectations and identifies and develops new services and facilities. In 2013, the business earned the title of Best Campsite/Caravan Park in Essex for the third time as well as being crowned bronze winners in the Holiday Park of the Year category at the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence in 2014. For many years now, our park has been awarded the David Bellamy Gold Award for conservation and is a member of the Essex Wildlife Trust. We also have become a Warner’s Group Premier Park which is awarded following an inspection, ensuring we meet the standards of excellence to be named one of their top recommended parks in the UK. We are very proud of these achievements and aspire to continue to not only maintain but exceed this level of excellence to take the business forward with the help of every member of our team.
