'The Cabin' is a pretty, coastal, fully refurbished two bedroom cottage on West Mersea Island, Colchester, Essex, England. It is close to the sea on a much sought after quiet lane. There are beautiful walks and bike rides either along the sea wall or to the beach. Stop on the way at The Oyster Bar or the infamous Company Shed for some fabulous fresh fish either to take home or eat in.
The cottage sleeps 6 in two good sized bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two bunk beds.
The bathroom is upstairs and has a large shower cubicle.
There is a new kitchen with a seaside theme which continues into the comfortable living room. It has a small enclosed private courtyard garden which is a sun trap in the summer.
Well behaved dogs are welcome.
There are two sailing clubs close by, a Stand up Paddleboard rental shop and Fishing trips are available.
Coming to Mersea is a little like stepping back in time, well known for it's traditional sailing and fishing boats. There is a nature reserve on the other side of the island and a perfect spot for walking, birdwatching or photography. You can also have the use of the two man kayak for a small extra fee.
