    Property description
    Mersea Island
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    The Lodge is a new self-catering holiday cottage. It's fresh, eco-friendly and very energy efficient.

    It has 2 bedrooms, 1 double (ground floor), 1 twin (first floor) and a double sofa bed in the open plan living area. It is ideal for a family of 4.

    The Lodge is located in the rural part of West Mersea and enjoys lovely farmland views. There is a farm shop very close by which can be found down the farm entrance lane opposite and supplies basic produce and also frozen local meat. They also have a petting area where children can get close up and feed pigs, goats, chickens, ducks and llamas.

    It is close to all amenities and the anchorage can be accessed by a very pleasant walk via footpaths across the fields to the sea wall taking about 25/30 mins.

The cottage is the perfect blend of old and new. It was built recently in a 'barn' style, with lots of character and quaint features. Everything works well (including the free wi-fi) and is clean and eco-friendly. The views are lovely, across gardens and fields with chickens, ducks and horses. We stayed in Dec/Jan and it was very cosy. You need a car to get to the local shops, and there is off-road parking infront of the cottage. The cottage is situated very close to the road which does add a bit of noise, but this didn't bother us. It was fun for the children to watch the tractors go past. The hosts were helpful and accommodating. We would definitely recommend The Old Forge ! more

We were very impressed with the lodge. It was only built recently, and is clean and bright with all the necessary self catering facilities. Plenty of room to park the car. Great base for visiting the Island. more
