Mersea

Situated on Mersea Island on the river Blackwater near Colchester, our site at Mersea is Essex Outdoors' largest centre for outdoor learning. With over 62 acres of well maintained grounds we can accommodate up to 350 visitors in tents, 104 in cabins and 48 in its brand new residential centre. 

The centre has a great range of facilities including a new toilet and shower block with dedicated facilities for disabled users and families, a self-contained training suite for up to 40 people, a laundry room, dining rooms, a large well-equipped main hall and a big screen cinema.

We have a wide range of exciting and challenging outdoor activities available both on and off site, and have access to a small field study centre in a creek off West Mersea, only reachable by boat.

Day visits in the area could include Essex Wildlife Trust reserves, Colchester Castle Museum, Colchester Zoo and Constable country.
