In a nutshell: Short walk to beach, pub and shops, enclosed garden, pet friendly. Mersea Island lies between the estuaries of the Colne and Blackwater rivers. This unique place is the most easterly inhabited island in the British Isles. Mersea Island is separated into West Mersea and East Mersea. West Mersea is a quiet resort with old fishing cottages and a shingly beach, noted for its sailing, fishing and oyster farming. East Mersea is quieter, more rural with smaller, less busy beaches. Maldon and nearby Mersea Island have been described as the 'New Brittany'.
Situated just yards from the beach and sea on popular Mersea Island, this delightful property with its wonderful sunny conservatory and enclosed garden is perfect for a family holiday or relaxing break whatever the season. The location is ideal for walking, birdwatching or watersports, as well as for exploring the many local attractions. Famous for its fish and oysters, the island is reached by a causeway and is popular with the sailing fraternity. The oyster bar at the famous ‘Company Shed’ should not be missed. Colchester’s castle and fine shopping are just 8 miles and the beautiful countryside of Constable fame lies a mere 30 minutes’ drive away. The nearby country club offers golf and a health spa. Shops and pubs 500 yards.
