'High Hoe' Cottage East Mersea

'High Hoe' Cottage East Mersea

Phil & Carol invite you to stay at their romantic holiday retreat lying only 1 hours drive from the M25.

‘High-Hoe’ in the East of Mersea Island is the perfect escape from the stresses of the modern world.

A very old dwelling that almost fell down, it has been rescued, lovingly restored and modernised. Essentially a thatched cottage in a wood it dates back some 500 years when it started life as a tiny medieval hall.

If you’re looking to escape a hectic life or want a romantic break or perhaps just to get away from it all, ‘High Hoe’ is waiting for you!

Chances are you’ll be amazed at the sight of a hunting barn owl, see no one other than the occasional walker and be woken only by the wind in the trees or the sounds of nature.

This is secret Essex, remote but accessible and remarkably a range of beaches, shops, pubs and restaurants including the world famous Company Shed, are all within 5 to 15 mins drive.

High Hoe is suitable for up to 3 adults and 2 younger children. A highchair is available on request. There are 2 upstairs bedrooms which have a white washed loft feel and a single bedroom downstairs which has french doors to the lawn. There is a downstairs wet room and toilet.  An open plan kitchen and dinning area with double french doors to the garden, gives on to a beamed sitting room and inner hall.  Outside is a very private garden and parking for two vehicles.

‘High Hoe’ Cottage is situated at the far end of Shop Lane in East Mersea and only 200 metres from the coastal path. Cudmore Grove Country Park lies a further mile along the path. Go to
