Osea Meadows is a tranquil camping and glamping site set next to the beautiful Blackwater estuary, near Maldon, Essex.
Spacious Natural Setting
Osea offers 30 electric pitches in our spacious camping ground. Each space has a natural wooden divider and offers a glorious place for a relaxing break. The camping area is bordered by natural hedgerows and native trees to create the perfect camping location. The campsite is a haven for wildlife with wild rabbits, and migratory birds; at Osea you can sit back and relax in this natural haven and listen to the pretty birdsong.
This year we’ve opened our new shower and toilet block which is close to the electric hook-up spaces. There’s also discreet lighting from the electric hook-up area to the toilet block to give visitors peace of mind during the night.
Within the grounds we also offer all of our campers access to the ‘Garden Ark’, where you’re free to store ice blocks. The ark also has vending machines where you can buy a drink or snack. We’re also happy for our campers to bring their own barbecues or fire pits. Please make sure they’re raised off the ground.
At Osea we’re passionate about nature. Over the past few years we’ve been replanting many native trees and hedgerows to create a beautiful spot for visitors to ‘get away from it all’. At Osea we have a saying ‘All that space and sky’ and that’s something really unique. We’re not about cramping in our guests, we want to offer a wonderful experience where there’s space for children to run around and have fun, and where no-one is overcrowded.
Osea is located by the Blackwater estuary, which offers many outdoor activities for visitors. On the river there’s sailing, fishing, paddle-boarding and jet-skiing opportunities. By the riverside, there’s a footpath and cycle path that leads from the campsite beside the local saltmarshes which stretches for miles. The river is also home to migratory birds and is an ideal place for bird watching over the salt marshes.
Osea has a gated entrance to help you feel reassured that you’re safe in our enclosed setting.
Please remember even when glamping you are still camping, so don’t forget to pack your bedding and towels.
Always bring wet gear, especially wellies and a waterproof jacket, you never know what the weather will bring.
