SECLUDED & PICTURESQUE HOLIDAY COTTAGE ON MERSEA ISLAND

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Mersea Island - High Hoe

Romantic holiday retreat, suitable for couples and young families.

Phil & Carol invite you to stay at their romantic holiday retreat lying only 1 hours drive from the M25.

‘High-Hoe’ in the East of Mersea Island is the perfect escape from the stresses of the modern world.

A very old dwelling that almost fell down, it has been rescued, lovingly restored and modernised. Essentially a thatched cottage in a wood it dates back some 500 years when it started life as a tiny medieval hall.

If you’re looking to escape a hectic life or want a romantic break or perhaps just to get away from it all, ‘High Hoe’ is waiting for you!

Chances are you’ll be amazed at the sight of a hunting barn owl, see no one other than the occasional walker and be woken only by the wind in the trees or the sounds of nature.

This is secret Essex, remote but accessible and remarkably a range of beaches, shops, pubs and restaurants including the world famous Company Shed, are all within 5 to 15 mins drive.

High Hoe is suitable for up to 3 adults and 2 younger children. A highchair is available on request. There are 2 upstairs bedrooms which have a white washed loft feel and a single bedroom downstairs which has french doors to the lawn. There is a downstairs wet room and toilet. An open plan kitchen and dinning area with double french doors to the garden, gives on to a beamed sitting room and inner hall. Outside is a very private garden and parking for two vehicles.

‘High Hoe’ Cottage is situated at the far end of Shop Lane in East Mersea and only 200 metres from the coastal path. Cudmore Grove Country Park lies a further mile along the path.

Phil is retired with a lifelong interest in antiques, period property and gardens. Carol is a professional artist and teacher. They live in Essex with their 3 children.

Phil & Carol Torr purchased this cottage in 2006

Having lived in Essex for most of our lives we had long been in love with Mersea and it's unique atmosphere and attractions. We were delighted to have a chance to acquire such a beautiful property in one of our favourite places.

'High Hoe' is at the same time easily accessible and wonderfully secluded. Even at the height of the holiday season it resists the rush and stress of the modern world. You feel so close to nature and the sea and yet only a few minutes walk or drive from all the amenities the island has to offer. High Hoe is suitable both for couples and young families.
