Why You'll Love Dovercourt Holiday Park

  • Fantastic location close to a Blue Flag Beach
  • Brand new entertainment complex, restaurant and bar
  • Great park facilities with outdoor heated swimming pool

Situated close to a Blue Flag Beach, those who enjoy the seaside should pack their bucket and spade. Beautiful rolling surf and gorgeous Essex sunshine are the norm so be sure to apply the sun cream in advance.

There’s plenty to keep families and couples content on the park with a fantastic outdoor heated swimming pool, adventure golf, a large soft play area and an adventure playground to keep the kids busy, an all-weather sports court, and a small shop for those extra supplies.

On top of these fantastic facilities, our entertainment venue and restaurant is being further developed for 2020 - including an outdoor terraced area. Kitted out with the latest showbiz technology, and a high-tech lighting and sound system, it stages amazing live shows through the holiday season. Along with a new arcade, there's also a funky bar with super-size TV screens, a restaurant, a mini-supermarket, and more.

There will be plenty of reasons to get out and explore the county too. Take a stroll around the nearby town of Harwich; as well as featuring one of the country’s oldest cinemas - The Electric Palace, it’s also the location of the Redoubt Fortress, which offers glorious panoramic views of the entire area. Sightseers can also visit the Lifeboat Museum, the Halfpenny Pier, The Radio Museum, Angel Gate and the Old Treadmill Crane.

The area of Dovercourt is renowned for its civil war history, but you don’t have to be a historical boffin to enjoy a fantastic holiday break at this Essex park.

Slightly further afield we have Walton-on-the-Naze, Clacton-On-Sea, Colchester, and bustling Ipswich, all waiting to be discovered by you and your family. Plus we’re not too far from Constable County - the scenic home of John Constable and the inspiration for his many stunning paintings.

Dovercourt Holiday Park has so much to offer – so make the Essex Sunshine Coast your destination for an amazing holiday this year!
