Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Take a walk through and around Cudmore when staying on the island at the holiday site next door. Ideal for walks, letting dogs off lead and a fantastic adventure play park for the children.

    Very nice clean beach, clean water and nice and sandy. Dotted with colourful beach huts. Huge pub and a small cafe with a toilet block.
    Not so packed like other beaches in Essex.
    A nice day out.

    Nice place to stop by for good coffee & home made cakes. We dropped in after a morning on the beach, they serve lunch but we had lunch elsewhere. Friendly service. We sampled some wines & bought a bottle of blush, took some good pics in front of the vineyards.

    Pop in and be amazed at the history on such a small island. From Bronze Age to present times. See how they discovered the Roman’s use of the island. Small but packed full of information and facts.

    The staff at this library are so helpful, friendly and understanding. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble. They treat you more like a friend visiting them. They are superb.

    We had breakfast at the Fox Inn this morning and it was very nice indeed. Would advise you to book just in cae you are disappointed. Very good service and friendly. It was nice and spacious in the pub and all guide lines were in place we also liked the fact that after somebody had left their table the waitress, Rose who was very friendly cleaned it down thoroughly, wiped around the edge of the table, back of the chairs and the seat, keep it up.
    We will be back.

    I would like thank everybody who was involved with our tour of the MV Ross Revenge. From leaving the key side, the boat trip to Radio Caroline, the tour of the radio station was excellent. A special thanks to our guide Josh for his very informative and enthusiastic tour of this fascinating piece of radio history. This was a Birthday treat not to forget, thank you to my Wife for organising.

    The entire thing from start to finish was excellent!

    I had a hour lesson and it just flew by, my instructor was extremely professional and very friendly and easy to talk to, he answered all of my questions, I’d never done paddle boarding before, but after that 1 lesson it’s definitely sparked a love for being out on the water.

    I would honestly recommend anyone who is thinking of giving it a go, to just go for it, book a lesson! I can’t wait to get back out on the water again! I would 100% recommend this place to absolutely anyone who asked me until I was blue in the face!

    Get out there and have a go, it’s brilliant!

    And a massive thankyou to my instructor, very patient and you can tell he really cares about you having a good experience, I will definitely be returning for another paddle soon!

    From start to finish we had a wonderful pub lunch trip , Stacey was a great host. very welcoming and knowledgable. Shame it wasn't the best day for seal or seabird spotting but the sunlight helped make it a lovely experience. Would definitely highly recommend!

    Although this business still exists, it's no longer located at the address stated so cannot be reviewed as a business at Barfield Road west Mersea

    An adrenalin rush from start to finish. Loved the scenery. Loved the acceleration, loved the powered manoeuvres circling and the very witty Mark who made the trip so enjoyable . We didn't want it to stop. All very safe. Superb value. We will do the double tour next time
