BUNGALOW ON THE BEACH FRONT

Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday bungalow in St Osyth

3 bedrooms, 1 shower room, 1toilet. Sleeps 6

Attractive property right on the sea front, literally 5 meters to the beach. Sea front garden to enjoy BBQ's etc and when the sea goes out you can collect mussels, cockles, oysters etc.

If you like water sports there is a jetty further up for launching jet-skis and motor boats.

The bungalow itself is fully equipped with everything you should require. The top garden is just in front of the beach which has a boundary picket fence to stop the little ones escaping and a gate at the back.

STRICTLY NO DOGS OR OTHER PETS ALLOWED

Relax: Point Clear is recorded as being the driest area in the British Isles with the least rainfall.

Make the most of the summer months by relaxing on the beach or windsurfing on a blustery day. The sea sometimes resembles a mill pond at high tide, it can be so calm.

If you like sea fishing you can cast from the beach and catch bass and plaice (and crabs of course).

At dusk enjoy the sunset over Mersea Island it makes a lovely ending to the day.

These properties are quite unique because of their situation right on top of the beach. You can have bbq's on the beach as long as you tidy up afterwards. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy yourself.

STRICTLY NO DOGS OR OTHER PETS ALLOWED.

Dining & Entertainment: If you like dining out in the evenings we recommend The White Hart public house/restaurant which is 2 miles away and serves fantastic home made food all from local produce.

Or on the site there is a fish & chip shop, a Chinese take-away,

local pub which children are welcome and entertainment.

St Osyths has restaurants and pubs for dining.(Chinese & Indian)

We recommend St Osyth's for fish and chips.

The Ferryboat public House 10 minutes walk and allows children. Outside the pub is a hot food hut which is open until 1.00am.

Point Clear shares its area with 'The Orchards Holiday Village'.

Although it is not a part of it and is separated from this area. As you are staying in a bungalow you will not be allowed access to |The Orchards Holiday Village|.

St Osyth has over 17 miles of coastline and was designated a Port in the 13thC. So boat building and coastal trade is a huge part of its history. Cargoes of hay and straw for London's stables and loads of sheeps cheese and butter also.

There are 120 listed buildings in St Osyth, 78 are within the Historic Town limits. Many of the farmhouses are listed, several now offer holiday accomodation. The moated aisled St Cleres Hall has been in continuous residential occupation since 1320 AD.

The main settlement of the village is designated as an Historic Town, and as such is protected by a long established and extensive conservation area. St Osyth is in essence a small medieval town clustered around the precinct walls of a once powerful Priory.

The Parish Church inside dominates the open space and is a grade I listed building which is very large and gives a clue to the prosperity of the village in Tudor and Georgian periods.

Time Team featured a search for the medieval quay a few years ago

Perfect Getaway

  • 4 out of 5
This property is a brilliant getaway.

Communications with Andrew couldn't have been easier.

The accomodation is good and well appointed, and the location ever better! You are literally metres from the beach!

There are enough local amenities, such as shops, pubs and cafes to keep you ticking over for a week.

You are close to a number of lovely villages, and small towns such as Walton, Frinton, St Osyth and Brightlingsea (never did manage to catch the ferry from Point Clear though!) Historic Colchester is barely half an hour away. For a bit of good, old-fashioned seaside fun there is Clacton, which is just around the corner.

Enjoyed really good meal at The Red Lion in Thorrington. Very helpful staff and great food.

Really enjoyed the bungalow, the location and the area. Can't recommend highly enough!

Disappointed

  • 1 out of 5
Beware of the pictures. The outside looks just as portrayed; the inside was a HUGE disappointment. The “house” is an uninsulated beach shack, cold and noisy when the wind blows (which was constantly as expected at the beach). The carpets are 1980’s, worn, patched, faded, dirty and smelled of mildew. We had to air out the place for hours to make the smell tolerable. There are two full-size beds, both in very small rooms and both had lumpy mattresses and very flat pillows. The room with the bunk beds seems to have had some sort of pesticide sprayed on the mattresses and the carpet (this smell WAS overwhelming). Two of the three bedrooms had heaters, only one of which functioned. The living room furniture appeared found in a second hand store or possibly a skip somewhere. The TV was nice with a huge range of channels, but no instructions on how to make the two remotes work together. The Kitchen and bathroom/WC were adequate. Some previous renters had left tea and a few other staples to which we added. The shower room had mold and mildew in the corners of both the shower enclosure and the room itself. There were no instructions on how to use the various energy saving devices (perhaps not necessary IF you live in England, needed if you don’t). We paid approximately 4 times the amount of money as was advertised for electricity and we were only there 5 days not a full week. There was no information about local services, i.e. grocery stores, pubs, transportation etc., so try and do the research before you get to the area. The view and the access to the beach was terrific. Without major updates and deep cleaning of the house, I could not recommend this property.

Great holiday

  • 4 out of 5
Bungalow itself satisfactory with everything you need and excellent location for sightseeing. Lovely walks. We saw seals in bay in front of the bungalow which was a lovely experience nice to see. Its a very quiet and friendly location. Cafe at end of beach good home cooked meals and value for money. Fishing not good had to go to Clacton.
