Mersea Island is beautiful and tranquil, with a fabulous shale beach and interesting jetty. Cottage was fully equipped and with all home comforts, down to a pint of milk in the fridge ready for when we arrived and flowers on the table. A lovely touch, thank you. Sheets were spotless, in comfy beds, nice large towels, lovely warm clean house once the heating kicked in. Just enough books/magazines and original features such as painted dresser to make it feel homely but without being cluttered. All instruction manuals in folder in the kitchen to help us use the appliances, which with the washing machine being better quality than the one I have at home, ended up being quite handy!!! Sofas were extremely comfortable too, lovely big lounge for two adults and two growing teenagers. Only criticism would be to use a water filter for the kettle as it was a bit crusty with lime scale in our tea due to the hard water (not owners fault, but we are from Yorkshire where the water is much softer) All in all, a great three nights, would recommend to anyone. Many thanks to Jennifer and crispin.
