After a really bad journey we opened the door and found wine in the fridge and biscuits on the table... it could not have been better!
We were looking for somewhere different to stay for a long weekend and stumbled upon Bumpkin, and thank goodness we did. The house is lovely, the kitchen is well equipped and the bed is sooo comfortable with really nice linen and towels that I wanted to take home with me!
Mersea itself is a small fishing village/island and if you love seafood you have to come here! Nicky is really helpful with suggestions on where to eat and we can recommend the black shed on the front and the seafood platters. You take your own wine and have to wait outside on a bench for a table, its like going back in time.
All in all, a wonderful relaxing weekend away, I'd recommend it and we will be going back. more
