Bungalow on the beach front

Bedrooms 3
Space 645 sq. ft.
Property type bungalow
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 shower room, 1toilet. Sleeps 6. NO PETS ALLOWED

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 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 and 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 and Sharon purchased this bungalow in 1960

Why Andrew and Sharon chose Clacton-on-Sea

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.

Perfect get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to find lovely clean property very well equipped. My granddaughter was in her element on the beach directly in front of the bungalow. Beautiful views and sunsets. We took the foot ferry to Brightlingsea and went on the pedalos in the Scout boating lake behind the beach huts, it was such a refreshing change from everyday life, and I cant wait to go again!

Great holiday by the sea

  • 5 of 5

This property was an ideal size for us two. It's situation, right next to the sea, is perfect.

It was comfortable, had everything we needed and was clean. The only small irritation was that we had to clean the oven before we could use it. Otherwise it was perfect and we would definitely go again.

Fabulous as always

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from another lovely relaxing weeks holiday at this place.We've been holidaying in this bungalow for over 10 years now and it never disappoints us. Right next to the beach, it has every home comfort you need for a relaxing holiday. You have to be quick to book though as the weeks get snapped up quickly,no doubt repeat booking from families like ours as it's affordable and well equipped as well as being safe for kids.
