Little gem of a cottage.
Perfect location near shops and restaurants. Every thing you want from a coastal cottage and David and Ann, the owners are perfect hosts. All amenities catered for and we will return again next year. Our little dog loved it !

Beautifully relaxing.
I stayed here alone with a big stack of books and went out walking every day. Other than using my car to go into Colchester one evening I didn't use it in the whole five days I was there as there are so many lovely walks right from the door and local shops and restaurants are all within strolling range. Although the accommodation is attached to the hosts' home it's very quiet and feels fairly private and the weather was 'just' warm enough to sit out in the secluded patch of garden round the back. Very good use had been made of the space resulting in a light airy feel which was really relaxing. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the large bathroom beyond anything you'd expect in such a small rental property. There was an issue with the shower but it was sorted within hours and the owners were very helpful and friendly. If I had to find fault - the parking area is a bit tight when everyone is at home but that can't be helped and I don't drink so I gave my daughter the welcome gift from the fridge as she'd booked the break for me....I'd have preferred a packet of local made biscuits or similar. All in all a lovely little gem of a rental which I wouldn't hestitate to book again if I were on Mersea.

Really comfy and cosy little bolthole in a lovely part of the country.
We really enjoyed our stay. The place is beautifully furnished and kitted out. Ann and Dave were great hosts, helpful and friendly. West Mersea and the wider area is a lovely part of the world, so understated, friendly and laid back. The cottage is just up from the original fishing village with its timber cottages, house boats and seafood shops and restaurants, and there are lovely beaches and nature reserves nearby, along with spectacular coastal views. An amazing place!

Perfect Little Lodge
A comfortable and stylish place to stay set perfectly on the doorstep of the more interesting parts of West Mersea. Set peacefully out of the way down a gravel drive buf within a short walk of the estuary, boats, pubs, restaurants and eateries Little Lodge couldn't be better placed. Ideal for two people the Lodge is clean and bright. The bathroom is modern and spacious with plenty of hot water at all times and the open plan kitchen, dining and living space perfect. All rooms have large windows allowing plenty of light and fresh air in. The small outdoor area is nicely private and whilst Ann and David are available next door they leave you to enjoy a private stay. Thanks Ann and David for the very welcome bottle of Prosecco on arrival, I'm sure that if we come back to West Mersea we'll definitely stay at Little Lodge again.

Cosy little annexe with private courtyard
Little Lodge is the ideal place for two! Beautifully decorated and very well equipped, the owners have thought of everything. A good location too within a few minutes walk from the harbour.
