About the property

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.

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.

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.

Dining & Entertainment: If you like dining out in the evenings try St Osyth or Clacton.

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.(seasonal)

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

About Andrew or Sharon

Well I'm the youngest of 3 siblings with an older brother and sister. We all do our bit in the hopeful smooth running of this property.

Andrew or Sharon purchased this bungalow in 1960

Why Andrew or Sharon chose Essex

This property has been handed down to us from our parents and is now run by 3 of us. We grew up coming to this place every year and it has very fond memories. As kids in the 70's where there were no distractions like mobiles, pc's consoles etc, This was the perfect holiday for us and so much fun. This really was a great place and even now when we come down to work or clean or renovate there is always a lovely atmosphere..

What makes this bungalow unique

When you stay here and the weather is nice ( that helps) . You could be anywhere in the world as this area is so unique. There are two significant tides each 24 hrs.

It really is relaxing. The sunsets are excellent. Come and see for yourself.

Peaceful area with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and enough room for us four adults. Kitchen was quite a good size with plenty of pots and pans etc to cook with and a large fridge freezer.

Beds were all comfortable and there were things like kites, fishing equipment and some games to use.

Perfect position good size not too posh!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our 3 little granddaughters (7,5,2 yrs) and had a really good old fashioned seaside holiday, it was perfect for what we wanted, lots of sandcastles were built and a jolly good time was had by all.

A little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here on holiday over the last 10 years and it never fails to delight, whether rain or sunshine. The bungalow is clean and cosy but not cramped,in fact a real find at the price. It's lovely that you get less hustle and bustle here but the other busy seaside resorts are not far away,like Clacton and Walton. You are not far from a bus route and they are frequent. There is a great little cafe within 5 minutes walk away along the seafront.

My kids love the fact that the beach is a few feet away and there is enough room in the garden to play football. There were crabbing lines and fishing nets already there, with comfortable garden furniture for sitting and watching the world go by

We stayed last week and the quietness was amazing and so was the weather!

We will book for next year soon as weeks get snapped up quickly. Thoroughly enjoyable holiday! 😀

Great little place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a brilliant week in point clear. Property was clean, very homely and had everything we needed. such a great location right on the beach. The sea is tidal but my kids had as much fun climbing on the rocks and playing on the beach when the tide was out as swimming in the sea when it was in. Theres also easy access to some lovely beaches in jaywick and clacton. The open air swimming pool in brightlingsea and the foot ferry were great too. People were very friendly - you get to meet a lot of dog owners and families walking along the sea front - and andrew the owner was great - great communication, very helpful and a pleasure to do business with. I have already recommended this bungalow to family ... but on the proviso that we get first call to book it again next year!
