4.8/5 (16 reviews)

If you want to get away from it all to total peace and quiet then this is the place for you. However, it is very basic, tired, and quite cramped for space, with several basic things missing like tea towels. Also, the kitchen utensils weren't clean and had to be washed before use, eg the cheese grater ...

Although just half an hour from London, Essex is green and glorious enough that you'll find it very hard to believe that you're so close to the capital. With plenty of wide open spaces and a coastline that spans over 350 miles, there's plenty for those who want a little more from their holiday than to simply top up their tan or soak up some sights. Adventure sports hotels in Essex come in a variety of shapes and sizes, offering a range of accommodation, at a range of prices with something to suit everyone.

Adventure Sports Hotels in Essex

Southend-on-Sea offers everything you could need for a traditional, seaside holiday, with attractions such as the world-famous Southend Pier, the Sea Life Centre and a superb town centre. However, if you want to add an adrenaline injection to your break, the coast is packed with high-octane water sports too. Southend-on-Sea is one of the United Kingdom's most popular destination for kite-surfers and the local council has even allocated nearby Shoeburyness as a specific kite-surfing area. With favourable currents created by the Estuary and southerly cross-winds, Southend-on-Sea is ideal for beginners and seasoned wave-hoppers alike.

Water Sports, Tennis and Horse-Riding

The Roslin Beach Hotel is a superb beachside retreat for anyone with a hankering for an adventure sport holiday. It gives easy access to Southend-on-Sea's spectacular selection of water sports and also boasts its own gymnasium for those who want to keep on top of their fitness regimes. However, at the end of a hard day on the water or playing tennis or horse-riding at the local Belfairs Nature Reserve, there are bound to be a few aches and pains. The Roslin Beach Hotel has another ace up its sleeve for adventure sport enthusiasts, in the form of the Roslin Retreat spa. With a range of relaxing treatments and therapies on offer, guests can relax, unwind and refresh themselves - ready for another day's sporting activities.

Southend-on-Sea is a superb destination for families and fans of adventure sports. With some excellent accommodation in the area, you can enjoy the best of both worlds and make your stay a memorable one.
