Flexible sleeping arrangements and a central location make this a perfect place to stay for couples or families, who want to enjoy the best of West Mersea.
Comfortably sleeps 6 adults and 2 children.

My husband Ray and I have recently retired from lifelong careers as doctors, and have moved full time to West Mersea. We were introduced to the island over 30 years ago by good friends of ours, and lived here for two years before our careers took us elsewhere. We returned to holiday on the island often, staying with friends, enjoying the beach, sailing, and crabbing - a popular local children’s pastime of catching (and returning) crabs from the pier. We enjoyed it so much that we bought a holiday home here, and we now live here all year round on Coast Road, and let out our charming house nearby on The Lane. Our grown up family keep up the tradition, coming back often to visit and enjoy this really special part of the world.
