A very pleasant site right next to the sea, friendly welcome, very well-appointed and very clean facilities.

Lots of families and sea-scouts so a cheerful atmosphere!

I only stayed one night on a cycle tour so I really didn't do Mersea Island justice, it deserves a longer stay.

Hello people - so here is another review of Fen Farm - we have been visiting Fen Farm since 2010, and are just about to start our 3rd full season on a seasonal pitch. People don't just keep going back to places that aren't good.

Facilities on the site include *electric to pitches *lots of taps * elsan *spotless toilets & showers, *laundry facilities * washing up room * disabled toilet/ shower * family bathroom *beach * 2 x playparks *dog walking & ball-games field *friendly & helpful reception *outstanding wardens

Facilities nearby include *pub which serves good food *Cudmore grove country park *foot ferry to Brightlingsea *seafood restaurant *soon-to-open small Farm shop/ Café less than half a mile away *the bright lights of West Mersea *the even brighter lights of historical Colchester

The site is exceptionally well managed, has 4 live-in wardens, the toilet/ shower facilities are spotless. Every year the site has invested in improvements in facilities and refurbishments, as well as making conservation improvements as they are David Bellamy accredited (wildflower meadows & tree planting, owl boxes and insect hotels, pond with nesting moorhens). Very good green credentials with solar power and spring water used for toilets.

We love it. The kids will be 14 and 16 this year. They have been happy enough with what is on site for most of the past 9 years, and now they are older they can have the freedom to take themselves off site a little further afield if they want something a little more commercial (Now we sometimes send them off to the Park resorts for an hour to play in the arcade & buy a slushy!)

Friendly on arrival. Directed to our pitch with EHU in one of the outfields; no problem with that. Ground somewhat hard and effort needed to hammer pegs in! Plenty of space, and could spread out.

Can get blustery there. Toilet, shower, and waste disposal arrangements are among the best I have encountered, and numerous 'Loo of the Year' certificates displayed. Only negative was no mobile phone or data signals available, and they charge extra for this facility. Dog and child friendly.

We stayed for four weeks and we had a marvellous time at fen farm. The staff was very friendly and very helpful, the pitches were really spacious and we felt comfortable from the first day on: top clean toilets, no problems with electricity and the wardens were always willing to help whenever there was a problem. We stayed in Berry field and it was only about 10 min to the (shingle) beach at a very leisurely pace (with our seven grandchildren). To sum it up: we enjoyed our stay and we can recommend fen farm especially to families with dogs and children

What a fantastic campsite in a lovely location.

Flat, great access, well drained sandy firm soil (after heavy rain), very friendly welcome, late check out in low and mid season at 5pm so can get a full weekend break, clean and well maintained showers and toilets, Elsan, grey water etc etc. Plenty of taps round edge of fields, plenty of space for all. Nice play area for kids, space for games in middle of field

Really cannot fault this place in any way. Well priced for families as per pitch not per person. Will definitely return for a nice weekend chill. Top site!

First outing of the year - Easter Weekend on the beautiful Mersea island

Weather rather indifferent but that's the British weather for you, love this campsite, really friendly staff, site very well maintained and loo's and showers spotlessly clean as always

Will be returning again sometime this summer

Thank you Fen Farm another enjoyable stay XX

Reviewer: Bahhumbugessexgirl 6 reviews from this member

We really enjoyed our weekend on Fen Farm. The campsite is quite local to us so we know Mersea well.

There was a friendly greeting upon arrival and field recommended to pitch on. There are plenty of electric points but fewer water. We even managed to get a pitch with partial sea view.

There is a short walk to the beach which is well signed. Mahala's fish restaurant is also close by.

I didn't use the shop on site but my boyfriend did come back with a warm pastry as well as a newspaper.

The toilets and showers were plentiful and clean. The building isn't the newest but it is maintained perfectly.

I'm looking forward to going back again.

Stayed for 1 week. Very pleased with site. Plenty of room and you're able to pitch where you want as long as not too near to others. Got good pitch near play area. Not too noisy during the day. Very quiet and peaceful at night. Shower and toilet block always clean and never had to queue even when site was full. Receptionist very helpful and friendly. Good easy access to beach. Lovely site for a relaxing holiday. Weather was fantastic which also helped.

Vineyard cafe was nice, lovely homemade cakes. Pub near site was average. Not loads to do on the island but due to good weather had a fantastic week.

Reviewer: Apairofoldcampers 6 reviews from this member

Love this site. It was our 1st site we visited on our return to touring after a 30year gap and so pleased it was this one and not some of the other sites we have visited.

So far this is our fourth return visit.

Site is clean, pitches are well spaced out, friendly wardens on site, toilet block kept clean, large field for games/kite flying.

Easy access to beach. The pub serving good food is just across the road from the camp. The shop at the caravan park (cosways) next door is a little pricey, but a quick car ride takes you into west Mersey were there are supermarkets. Great Crab fishing for the kids in west Mersey

Reviewer: Seelejoa 1 review from this member

We visited Fen Farm during the first week of the school hols as a recommendation from friends and loved it. The facilities are spotless (piped music is a genius idea), the wardens are friendly and helpful and the space for the kids is safe and vast. We took the bikes and didn't see the kids most of every day while they were away exploring. They have a small play area and it's five minutes from the beach. The downside is that the shop on the adjacent site is extortionately expensive: £2. 99 for a bottle of ketchup! That's the only downside. One tip is that the ground is extremely hard and rocky so you will need rock pegs. Other than that, you're good to go - we'll definitely be back!
