'The Cabin' is a fully refurbished two bedroom cottage on Mersea Island, Colchester, Essex. It is close to the sea on a much sought after quiet lane. There are great walks and bike rides either along the sea wall or on the beach, and some fantastic seafood eateries. Mersea Island is the most easterly inhabited island in the UK, situated off the coast of Essex and 9 miles southeast of Colchester.
There are an abundance of things to do on the Island covering approximately seven square miles.
The house is child friendly (we have 3 ourselves). There are plenty of board games etc. We accept dogs as long as they are well house trained. They have to stay in the kitchen at night and are not allowed upstairs (there is a baby gate to close so they can't creep up!). I'm afraid that the bunk beds only take an adult on the bottom.
We are a family of 5 and enjoy an active outdoor life, walking, cycling, riding, sailing and skiing. We love cooking and especially sea food. We live in the countryside and love an open fire and a good movie too!
