Other things to note

Osea Island is a tidal island and is accessible via a mile-long tidal road for a 4 hour period every 12 hours when the tide is low. At high tide, access is possible by water taxi. During daylight hours, access is possible by helicopter. A Tide Time chart and specific driving instructions will be provided once your booking has been confirmed.

Osea Island is self-catering and there are fully-equipped kitchens in each cottage to support this. We recommend purchasing as much of your required groceries as you can before you arrive, however Ocado will cross the causeway and deliver to the island if you select a one-hour delivery window which falls within the low tide.
WiFi is available in most properties on the island and is powered by mobile 4G routers. Due to our remote location, the WiFi can occasionally prove temperamental. We would ask guests to please refrain from using the WiFi for streaming purposes.

Osea Island supplies firewood/logs for any property that include a working fireplace or wood burner.

Outside barbecues are permitted and guests may bring their own.

The heated outdoor swimming pool is open from April - October.

Kindly note that the clubhouse does NOT provide any food or beverage services.

If there is anything that has been missed out or if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to get in touch! All feedback is appreciated.

Location

Osea Island, England, United Kingdom

Osea Island is a unique and exclusive destination, perfect for families and groups of friends looking to enjoy a fun-filled getaway. The island boasts a wide range of activities to enjoy throughout your stay. As well as the outdoor swimming pool, there is a fleet of bicycles at your disposal, a croquet lawn, a football pitch, a tennis court, mini golf, fishing and sea swimming. The island is also great for couples or solo-travellers looking to relax and unwind amidst the tranquillity and serenity. Exploring the island is one of the primary activities our guests enjoy, as it is a fascinating place to get out and about. Other activities such as sailing can be booked in advance upon request, please get in touch if this is something you are interested in. At the centre of the village is The Clubhouse, a colonial-style former chapel complete with a games room and facilities which can be booked for family occasions or private dining. The Clubhouse also doubles up as a social hub where you can pick up a fishing rod or take a bicycle to go off and explore the far corners of the island. It backs onto large gardens with a heated swimming pool but still remains only a stones’ throw from the beaches and coastline.
