Accommodation Description

· Kid-friendly · Pets allowed

Upon entering this holiday cottage rental in North Essex, guests will find an open plan kitchen and a dining and seating area (with a double sofa bed), which has a log burner to keep the cottage cozy in the cooler days of autumn and winter. The patio doors lead to the garden, with views over the menage and paddocks to the sea. The garden has tables, chairs, and a barbecue to enjoy those summer days.

Following the sloping hallway to the other end of the cottage, a peaceful twin bedroom with an ensuite shower room can be found, and a larger family bedroom also with ensuite shower room is situated at the very end of the building. In total, there are five beds with an additional double sofa bed in the living area, allowing for a group of up to seven guests to go glamping here at once.

There is a lovely sunny feel to this cottage rental, and it is perfect for a smaller family group or couples that want a peaceful base close to the Suffolk border with all that the area offers.

Outside is a private, four-person log-fired hot tub, which is optional to book and available at an additional cost.
We allow 2 dogs per cottage at a cost of £10 per dog, per stay Read More

On-site, guests can purchase a bag of logs for the fire pit for £6, as well as a barbecue starter kit for £9.99, which includes a five-kilo bag of charcoal, a pack of firelighters, and a box of large matches. These both must be ordered in advance; they cannot be ordered upon arrival. Read More

Location + Surroundings

Located in the north Essex town of St Osyth's, this property is perfect for those seeking an alternative staycation. It's less than half an hour to the historic town of Colchester, the oldest recorded town in England, and its Roman wall is still visible in some parts. Furthermore, it's just over an hour's train journey to London for a day of sightseeing in the capital. Read More


The county’s gently rolling landscapes speckled with picturesque towns and villages have inspired a range of well-known artists, for example, Constable who is famous for his paintings of Dedham which is not far from St Osyth, and Wivenhoe, a quaint village nearby which offers beautiful views and is home to some beautiful pottery artists.

Vibrant seaside towns, such as Frinton and Walton, merge with quiet, isolated beaches that in turn become networks of tidal inlets and estuaries—rich in wildlife and perfect for a relaxing day out. The towns of Brightlingsea and Mersea offer lovely day trips, where guests can watch the local boats racing on a Sunday at Brightlingsea. They can also take a trip across the Strood to Mersea (watch out for high tide!) and go for a walk along the beach, all before enjoying some delicious fresh seafood from The Company Shed restaurant.
