Long Weekend Break

  • Review Submitted: 05-Apr-2013
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2013
The Old Forge Lodge was in the perfect location for us visiting family on the island. We had a lovely weekend, the sun even shone down on us, and the accommodation provided a perfect base to return to each evening to rest and relax. We found all the facilities to be of a good quality and in very good condition. We will definitely consider staying there again when we visit Mersea Island in the future.

Short break

  • Review Submitted: 05-Apr-2013
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2013
We stayed in the lodge while visiting family and our granddaughter stayed over with us a couple of nights. She loved her bedroom 'in the roof'! The lodge is a lovely base both for getting to the beach where we took the dog for long walks, and also for visiting Colchester. It is very comfortable and has everything you need. Will definitely consider staying again!

The Lodge

The Old Forge house was exactly what we wanted for our weekend on Mersea Island. It is a beautifully presented property which suited our family of four very well. It was clean and warm and my daughter thought the twin room beds were much more comfortable than her one at home! The owner was very helpful with suggesting very good places to eat nearby and nice areas to go for walks. There were also thoughtful touches in the bathroom such as shampoo, shower gel and soap and plentiful towels. We would definitely recommend renting this property and would go back ourselves anytime.

We stayed as a family of 4 (2 young children, 3 & 5) and we had a great time. The property, although new, is full of character, homely and has everything you need for an enjoyable break away from home. The beds were comfy and the girls loved their beds upstairs with their own little hiding places, beanbags, toys etc! All nice and clean and little touches like providing a selection of toiletries (similar to a hotel), enough loo roll!, some washing up liquid etc to keep you going so you don't have to worry about the little things that can get annoying if they are not there, were all appreciated.
The owner was available to talk to and very friendly without being in your way. We were very much free to come and go as we pleased and felt at home.
The children loved this holiday. They loved their little holiday home and the garden. Colchester Zoo is only 10 mins away. I think the highlight of their holiday was feeding the chickens and collecting their eggs! Would definately recommend to anyone - couple or family of any age.

Immaculate cottage. A lovely weekend break!

We had a 3 night stayed at The Old Forge House in July and loved every second despite the rain! The cottage is beautifully presented and 4 adults can stay comfortably, though there were 6 of us and we were fine.
There are fresh eggs available from the free range chickens and a TV and iPOD dock for the more drizzly moments!
If you like seafood, then go to Mersea! We highly recommend The Company Shed....no frills but seafood to die for.
Would recommend this cottage for anyone who needs a base to explore Mersea, or even as a cosy little place to spend the weekend away from home.

Mersea Island is situated on the North Essex coast only 9 miles from Colchester. The island is famous for its seafood and especially its oysters which are of world renown and can be enjoyed in abundance at The Company Shed and the West Mersea Oyster bar.

Mersea is located in the estuaries of the River Blackwater and the River Colne and these waters provide excellent waters for yacht and dinghy sailing. Windsurfing and kite surfing are also very popular here. For quieter activities there are beautiful walks and 12 miles of seawalls with wonderful views and wildlife for those interested in birdwatching.

Colchester is the nearest town to Mersea Island, only 9 miles away, and is Britain's oldest recorded town. It has one of the finest examples of a Square Stone Keep Castle in the country and is definitely worth a visit. Colchester Zoo is also a fabulous place to spend a day with children.
