Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


A delightful cottage within yards of the beach, yet hidden away down a private drive, this is the perfect location for a last minute break.

Little Lodge is a delightful single storey property in the hidden gem of West Mersea. Situated only 200 yards from the superb coastline, and hidden along a private drive in the grounds of the owner’s home, Little Lodge is the perfect getaway spot, with contemporary open plan living space, which is spacious yet still maintains a cosy feel. West Mersea is Britain’s most easterly inhabited island and access to the island is via the causeway crossing.
It is extremely popular with those who enjoy sailing and the waters are teeming with boats of all shapes and sizes. Water sports are particularly popular with paddle boarding, kitesurfing and sea fishing are all possible off the coast. If seafood is your favourite, especially the West Mersea oysters, then a visit to the Company Shed, a seafood shack, situated alongside the shores of a muddy creek is a must, or if sandy beaches are more your thing, then Monkey Beach is possibly the islands best. While the network of tiny creeks and boardwalks snaking through the marshes will fill a full day exploring. There is golf available nearby. Beach 350 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

All on the ground floor.
Open plan living space.
Living area: With 32" Freeview Smart TV and bluetooth dock.
Dining area.

    Beautiful location loved Mersea Island. Cottage was style over substance - no real cupboard space for food (we ate in apart from one night) no garden just very small space in front of lodge so not that good for the dog. No real privacy from the owners house (the lodge is an annexe attached to the owners house) as lodges main windows look out onto the drive and owner and their visitors walk past them to enter main house. Toilet blocked on last day not pleasant but rest of bathroom lovely. Mattress not good so had bad back all weekend and my side of bed squeaked every time you moved - quite annoying and didn't get restful nights sleep. Wouldn't stay again but would definitely come back to the island.

    Lovely time in Mersea. Never been before so happy to try something new. The lodge made it better by having friendly hosts and a clean comfortable and relaxing place to stay.
