great cottage

  • 5 of 5

Spent 9 days here recently, comfy warm and well furnished in good location for waterfront. Log burner a nice extra and very quiet area, hardly heard the gales outside. Coast Inn nearby friendly with good food, as was the nearby Oyster Bar. Company Shed not very attractive looking and seems to attract the London Hooray Henrys, so did not use, other eateries supported by locals. Blackwater Pearl cafe good and local, Arts Cafe in town good but pricier and cafe along at beachut area very good,

Good local butcher, fruit and veg shop and baker, also 2 delis.

Found local people very friendly and helpful and traffic not too busy. If in Colchester take care at 5 roundabout area on Clacton road, 2 main roundabouts close together with several mini roundabouts incorporated in system as well. a bit like Wacky Races.

Maldon worth a visit for boating heritage and marsh walks

Will be back again

Lovely seaside bolthole

  • 5 of 5

Rental places with a seaview are hard to come by in Mersea but this cottage a stone's throw from the harbour was the next best thing. Very close to both the Company Shed and West Mersea Oyster Bar as well as two great pubs there isn't a shortage of places to eat local seafood. The cottage is spacious and well equipped with huge beds and two bathrooms. A woodburner in the kitchen/diner/living room keeps it cosy in the colder weather and an enclosed garden is handy for dogs and children.

Absolutely delighted!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage, tasteful decoration, fully equipped, big comfortable beds and a woodburner - oh, and not to forget - very clean and well cared for!

An ideal place for a holiday either snuggling up in the warm in Winter or sitting out in the lovely, private, decked garden in Summer.

The cottage was even nicer than we were expecting, customer service was really friendly and good and I would definitely recommend Anchorage Mews.

perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely bolthole. The cottage was ideally placed - one minute to wak to the seafront. perfect for popping along to see the sunset and to stretch our legs in the morning. The woodburner is very cosy and the beds very comfortable. The owner was very helpful and responded to emails very quickly. I went with a group of friends and we loved the estuary walks, seafood restuaurants and local pubs. I would recommend this property and am hoping to return this year with my family.

Anchorage Mews, Mersea Island

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely long weekend at Anchorage Mews on Mersea Island. The house was lovely and the beds very luxurious. We had a great meal at the Company Shed and also ate in the Arts Cafe and did some lovely walks.
