Beautiful holiday cottage

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at Anchorage Mews was perfect! We are a family that range from grandparents, parents to grandchildren and even our dog! this 'tardis' of a holiday cottage accommodated us all. There was every facility that we could wish for, beautifully clean and very welcoming, including fresh flowers on arrival.
A fantastic location minutes walk from the beach, yacht club and lovely food at The Oyster Bar. I would most definitely recommend this to anyone looking for comfortable and stylish accommodation in an amazing location.

A Family Weekend

  • 4 out of 5
The location was superb for our family weekend, with 3 generations to amuse. The house was very well appointed and easy and comfortable to use. It was warm and cosy, with everything we needed. The bedrooms were spacious, even with cots and the 2 bathrooms were well configured. The small garden is very pretty.
We know Mersea well. It is a really good place for a relaxing visit and all of my communications with the owner were as pleasant and easy as her house is for a stay.
