About Michaela Brown

Osea Island is privately owned and for almost a 100 years it has been a well-kept secret amongst those in the know, but now this beautiful historic island, accessible by car only during low tide, will be open to the public to enjoy as a holiday destination. Be amongst the first to experience this well protected haven, just 45 miles from central London at the base of the Thames estuary. Remove the hassle and expense of long haul flights and reduce your carbon footprint by escaping to this rare and romantic gem, right here in England. And for those who are travelling from overseas let us show you how breath-taking an English coastline can be.
