Why Essex?

A stunning East Anglian county with London to the west and the coast to the east, with a range of points of interest across the gradient from urban sprawl to rural coastline. Book a holiday rental in Essex and see a different side of England every day!

About Essex

This large county is sure to have something for everyone. Whether you're looking for some seaside fun on sunny beaches; to explore the open, green countryside, stopping off in quaint pubs; to foray into outer London; or to explore local historical sites, Essex is a charming place to seek a varied holiday that'll please the whole family.

What to Do

Head into the town of Basildon to see the Glass Bell Tower - the first glass bell tower in the world.

Colchester Zoo has some of the greatest collections of cats and primates in Europe, and is an award-winning attraction to boot!

Top Essex Travel Tips

Essex is a large county, so to make the most of your trip and experience everything, you'd be best off with a car. Whilst public transport is good in the big towns, the more rural areas can be hard to get to this way.

To experience a little bit of everything whilst surrounded by beautiful scenery, book your next holiday rental in Essex.

4 Berth caravan. D/G C/H close to amenities. Pet welcome. REF 27012MV
Caravan stay

Wow , a lovely homely feel to this caravan which felt more like a holiday home , comfy beds , nice shower , only fault I didn’t like was plastic coating on mattress that made me hot , but good for protection for kiddies !the beach nearby was not nice as covered in huge rocks , further along was a shingle sand beach , market was great , on sundays ,see more
Breathtaking Elizabethan Manor House
Stunning Country Estate!

My husband and I had no idea that this magical manor even existed. The house is simply exquisite and surrounded by the most beautiful and serene English Countryside. We were the only couple staying there and truly felt like we were Lords of the manor for the weekend! The owner, Jon-Paul was always available to field our concerns and yet enabled us to have enough space for us to feel entirely (and wonderfully) alone. I couldn't recommend this house and experience more. Just ensure that you ask in advance for a 'historical' tour of the house and grounds.see more

Haven Orchards Great Family Park , Deluxe 3 Bed Holiday Home, Parkland 49
Great

Spent 4 days there and would like to go again, we spent everyday going to different places and it wasn't until the last day we went for a walk and walked on the beach which is opposite the main entrance. The home was comfortable and the beds very easy to sleep in, we ate out each night but everything was there to use. For the money it cost it was very good value for money. The site is geared up for families and there is lots to do.see more

Dreamy barn conversion on the Essex Sunshine coast
A lovely barn conversion in a lovely area

What a week!! We loved our fun packed family holiday in Great Bentley. We arrived after a 6 hour journey with our 1 year old and Fiona showed us the lovely barn conversion and was very welcoming! A beautiful base for exploring the local area and kitted out nicely for small or larger families. We would definitely book again!see more
