    A wonderful place to stay. We had a timeless week of beach walks and visiting the town. The loft is comfortable and gets most of the sun. It has great views and a well stocked kitchen.

    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.

    what a little gem, lovely property, loved the upside down aspect so when sitting in the living room you can see out on to the water, took our dog, she did find the stairs a bit much sometimes, but she is 13, will be back.

    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!
