Property Overview
Property Location

Mersea Island is located just off the coast in the estuary area of the Blackwater and Colne rivers and measures ten miles by two. It is connected to the mainland via a causeway called The Strood and becomes an 'Island' at Spring Tides, twice a day. West Mersea is a bustling town at the western end of the Island, an ideal location for families and couples who enjoy the great outdoors.

The island offers excellent conditions for many outdoor activities including sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing and canoeing. There are also plenty of opportunities for cyclists, bird watchers, golfers and those who enjoy coastal walks. Seafood lovers can sample 'The Mersea native oyster' from one of the popular seafood restaurants on the Island.

Anchor Cottage is located only a few hundred yards from all the local amenities that West Mersea has to offer including a selection of shops, cafes & restaurants. A short stroll will also take you to Monkey beach, making this cottage perfect for families. Anchor has been tastefully refurbished and modernised while retaining some period features and can accommodate up to 5 people in 2 bedrooms plus a sofa bed.
