The Coast is the Place to Be

When you are planning a weekend away, short break or staycation, the one thing to remember is that the coast is the place to be! With 350-miles of coastline and one of the driest areas of the UK, Essex offers more than most and delivers what it promises – a fantastic, unforgettable holiday experience for all!

Here are some of our reasons for making the Essex coast the top of your holiday list.


The Essex coastline is not far away from London, Kent, Hertfordshire or Cambridgeshire and offers a complete change of scenery with the bonus of not driving hours to reach it. Within an hour or so drive you can reach golden beaches and meandering estuary creeks, so there is no good reason not to take the kids straight out of school on a Friday afternoon, explore Essex and save hours of driving time.
Sun, sun, sun!

Essex is one of the driest areas in the UK with an annual rainfall level of 10.3 inches. Compare this to Cornwall which has 35 – 39 inches a year, and it is clear that you’ll have more good weather to make the most of every precious day out in Essex, and there is a lot to do and see here…..


The Clacton Air Show is back and will take place on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 August this year. The show can be seen from the sea front and features vintage aircraft, aerobatic and display teams, including the RAF team. The free event is a ‘must see’ for families, with plenty to do on the ground including a fireworks display on Clacton Pier in the evening. For more details visit:
All along our coastline are sailing communities which have annual regattas where you can spend a lazy day watching boats race each other, take a boat out or even join in with the mud races or tug of war…in the mud! Some of the best regattas can be found in Maldon, Heybridge, Mersea Island, Brightlingsea and Manningtree.

Here at Osea Meadows we are blessed by being next to a beach and close to all of these amenities. Add to this the big skies, sea breeze and a bright sun and you’ll have all you need for an unforgettable experience close to home.
