Booking from 12 April. This is a delightful, real Mersea Island cottage in West Mersea just yards from the sea and beach on the Coast Road - It is charming and dates back to the 1800's. It has a lovely, sunny, beach-house feel, a comfortable sitting room, dining area, well -equipped kitchen 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 path, a short stroll from the village shops and on the same road as the waterside restaurants e.g. The Company Shed. Elizabeth said'We enjoyed a lovely stay. It was beautifully clean and tidy on our arrival. The cottage is ideally located. Walking distance to the village and just a stones throw from the beach!
