The park is situated right alongside the Blackwater River and has a splash park which is sure to thrill the kids. Adults can savour a quiet walk along tree-lined avenues or the stillness of the ornamental lake.

-Cultural events: A number of visitors who head to holiday apartments in Maldon in spring are enthusiasts of the annual Maldon mud race which originally took place around New Year’s day. This charitable event organised by Lions & Rotary clubs takes participants over a 400m course across the River Blackwater.

The bungalow is clean and cosy but not cramped,in fact a real find at the price. It's lovely that you get less hustle and bustle here but the other busy seaside resorts are not far away,like Clacton and Walton. You are not far from a bus route and they are frequent. There is a great little cafe within 5 minutes walk away along the seafront. My kids love the fact that the beach is a few feet away and there is enough room in the garden to play football. There were crabbing lines and fishing nets already there, with comfortable garden furniture for sitting and watching the world go by We stayed last week and the quietness was amazing and so was the weather! We will book for next year soon as weeks get snapped up quickly. Thoroughly enjoyable holiday! 😀

                                                                                  Staying in any old house is always a treat and this one will not let you down. A refurbished 300 year old docker's cottage close to the estuary this is the prefect base for what I expect is a little visited part of England. It will accommodate a couple, a couple of mates or a family of three. It is very comfortable and practical and has the big plus of a large and secluded outside area. It is perfectly placed for trips to Mersea Island, Clacton-On-Sea and Frinton-On-Sea. Mersea Island is a must for seafood lovers and the choice of places to eat there is fantastic and all good value for money. Wivenhoe itself is a very pleasant small town, areas of which close to the River Colne have been tastefully redeveloped, There are around 5-6 pubs and I would happily recommend The Black Buoy and the Rose & Crown. Penny kindly left a few basic food stuffs to cover a basic breakfast and organised a parking permit (£2 per day). It was great.

We did find the pot holes a pain they could do with filling in, hope to go again when the sun shines.
