    Property description
    Mersea Island
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    The lovely fisherman's cottage is charming and dates back to the early 1800's. It has a delightful, sunny, beach-house feel, a comfortable sitting room, dining area, well -equipped kitchen (washing machine, new cooker, microwave) and bathroom, all downstairs. Upstairs there are two bedrooms - a good sized double and a twin (2' 6' beds). It is in a perfect situation just across the road from the beach, 2 minutes from the village shops and a short stroll along the coast to the waterside restaurants e.g. The Company Shed (renowned as one of the best fresh fish restaurants in the UK) and the Oyster Bar and Restaurant.

    Also there is a large garden which is enclosed with sunny sitting out area and TV with Freeview digital channels.

Clean & tidy, really quirky & cosy, good location near the beach front (2 minute walk), lots of character to the property, shame no wi-fi more
