Sunshine Cottage is close to beach, all village amenities, including pub within a mile, takeaway restaurants a 2 minute walk. Famous seafood restaurants in walking distance. Take the opportunity to try the world famous Mersea Oysters! In the village there are a variety of independent shops including coffee shops, there's also supermarkets and everything you need on one little Island! It is a great sailing centre and day fishing trips are also available along with the very popular 20 minute boat trip on the Lady Grace, or try your hand at paddle boarding and kayaking.
