Bright and beautiful little cottage

  • 4 of 5

Island Cottage is bright, clean, comfortable and well equipped. A brilliant location with the beach, shops and restaurants all within easy walking distance. We had a brilliant week building sandcastles, collecting shells, crabbing and eating seafood. Just big enough for the four of us - the kids loved the garden too!

Perfect for me

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect cottage with lovely and large garden. Like coming back to your own home everyday. Ideal location. Great if you want to stay in and around West Mersea but Colchester is easily accessible if you want a visit to a bigger town.
