    Great location, cozy and well equipped! Great views with lots of lovely walks and places of interest! We will definitely return to mersea, but choose a slightly larger property!

    Beautiful cottage with a good view, lots of walks with the dog, very quiet and nice neighbours. Exactly what I was looking for. One downside, the shower did not work properly.

    A good holiday with lots of walking done. The cottage is fantastic, just right for two people. We would definitely go back.

    Overall the week in Mersea was a brilliant experience. The island itself has a fascinating history, a perfect combination of local history, wild life and tasty fresh local food. "Stoker's Loft" was a wonderful conversion job; it was well appointed and well equipped.

    Beautiful location but better served if you have a car so you can easily get to colchester if you miss a nightlife.

    Very good location - facilities very good a- even a washing machine/dryer if needed. The best of all was the heating which was included in the price.
