"What a fantastic place this is. We've just returned from our week away and it was honestly such a wonderful break, its made us question our life choices and whether we can move there! Stoker Loft is gorgeous. Its well laid out and has everything you could need for a break. Its fitted out to a really high standard and felt like home. I loved the array of interesting books too, which I thought was a nice home from home touch. The kitchen is well equipped and the washing machine was a huge bonus. I know most people don't wash clothes on holiday, but a stray spoonful of food threatened to ruin my top so it was a blessing to deal with it quickly. The shops are limited here, but we loved that. A week away from endless commercialism! You can still find those all important holiday gifts though. It was a pleasure to park up and leave the car for most of the week as you can walk to everything. We took a ride out one evening to East Mersea, but for the rest of the time it stayed parked. The Fish restaurants are amazing and recommended, as is the Black Pearl Café for an early morning bacon roll. We watched tides roll in and roll out again and time slowed down. Monkey Beach is very pretty and really worth the short walk. Everywhere was so welcoming to our Jack Russell dog and it was all very restful. Stoker Loft without doubt added to the whole experience and we can't wait to rebook. The Visitors book was brimming with positive comments and we could see why."

"I enjoyed my stay at Willow Tree Barn and the owners, Carlo and Liz, are very friendly and helpful, especially Carlo and his son, carrying most of my luggage and bits from the car to the cottage. Carlo also has useful recommendations for places to visit. The place was immaculately clean and very comfortable and very well equipped. It is in an interesting area and there are many worthwhile sites to visit. I am slightly disabled and my only small criticisms are the low sofa and low fridge and the slope up from the drive but these would cause little problems for the able-bodied. I can fully recommend this cottage."

"Mersea is lovely,lots of walks and seafood eateries. Unfortunately the loft is situated at the end of a 6ft wide thoroughfare to the main yatching area, not too bad during the day but evenings were very noisy. Apart from the dinghies being trundled past, the local kids use it for skateboarding. Also as the bed room is on the ground floor there was noise from poeple coming back late and talking out side the window which started our dog barking. This is not a good place for a peaceful break. After the unexpected fireworks on Saturday night we decided to come home early.Obviously not the place for us!"

"My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Walnut Cottage. The owners Julian and Penny made us feel so welcome. The cottage provided everything we needed for our stay in a practical way. When I requested an iron and ironing board Julian provided that for us. You need transport to get to other places as this is in a rural area with a long country road to walk down to the main road. The setting is beautiful if you appreciate the lovely scenery around you. The property is also close to Hatfield Forest which is a 15 minutes drive away."

"A wonderful little cottage, ideal for two people to get away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy a flavour of island living. Lovely walks, friendly locals, wonderful seafood, very good pub in easy walking distance. Excellent birdwatching at Fingringhoe Wick Nature Reserve and Abberton Reservoir, both operated by Essex Wildlife Trust. The Loft is a quirky little upside down one bedroom house which has everything we needed and more besides. Clean, comfortable and owned by a very lovely couple. Highly recommended."
