Essex

Relax and enjoy a coastal retreat in a lovely seaside cottage in Essex. Predominantly rural, with quiet country lanes weaving amongst country side scenery and being surrounded by 350 miles of gorgeous heritage coastline, there’s no wonder this picturesque region attracts so many holiday makers.

Stay in a cottage by the sea in the classic British seaside resort of Southend-on-Sea. Home to a beautiful clean sandy beach, many great family attractions including the Great Notley Discovery Centre and Park and the renowned 2 kilometres Grade II listed pier which spans out into the stunning Thames Estuary, there’s sure to be something for all the family to enjoy.

Maldon is an ancient pretty town embedded in the corner of Essex which brings charm, culture, quirky boutiques, quaint little cafes, shops and galleries. It overlooks the impressive Blackwater Estuary, making it the ideal setting for a relaxing and memorable costal cottage break away. Take a stroll along the fantastic hundred year old promenade, let the kids enjoy some fun in the popular park or simple unwind in a delightful local pub or restaurant.

Meanwhile a cottage near the coast in the Colchester offers a host of things to do. On sunny days, visit the beach and take in the fresh sea breeze with a gentle walk and lounge on the golden sands. For the not so summery days, Colchester has many thins there to be explored. Take a tour around the Grade I listed historic castle and its museum, have fun with the kids at Colchester Zoo or absorb the local culture and arts at exhibition galleries held there throughout the year.

Wherever you choose to stay in Essex, a lovely cottage near the coast will give you enjoyment, peace and relaxation and holiday memories to treasure.
