Cozy and snug inside, the Armadilla has all of the amenities guests would expect in a boutique hotel including underfloor heating, a Bluetooth sound system, and mood lighting. The bench seats can convert into a double bed or two single beds and guests are asked to state their preference when booking. Guests can cook in the small kitchen area with a sink, a kettle, a toaster, a fridge, and a microwave. There is also cutlery and crockery for two people. The Armadilla also features an internal toilet and shower and plenty of storage space for clothes and other belongings.
Outside, guests will find a private deck with seating, which is great for relaxing on during a summers evening. Glampers can cook up a feast on the barbecue or snuggle around the fire pit while enjoying the picturesque surroundings. Guests can soak the evening away in their own private two-person, log-fired hot tub for an *additional cost*. Guests should inquire for details.
One dog is allowed for an additional cost, guests should please inquire for further details.

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.
