Haven The Orchards

St Osyth, Essex, CO16 8LJ

Lakes, mud flats, tinkling rivers – this park is surrounded by splashy sounds in Essex. And because the park is long and thin, everything is near the water. You can walk down from the sea wall to a sand and pebble beach. Or head to a favourite spot with your book. And if you love to indulge? Well, you’ve come to the right place. There’s a restaurant and takeaway. So tuck in!

There is always something to see and do for all ages, from your toddler seeing sand for the very first time and learning to swim in one of the swimming pools to you trying your hand at archery or simply relaxing whilst you’re entertained by one of their shows.

Open March to November
