“What a wonderful place to stay for a girlie weekend! The Lodge was extremely clean and comfortable and came with everything you could need. The balcony has beautiful views and allows you to watch over the chickens. We were lucky enough to receive fresh eggs on our first morning, they were delicious! We recommend the lodge as it is only 20 minutes away from Colchester zoo and the beach. We will definitely be returning. Thanks again for a fantastic weekend.”

“What a wonderful house for a holiday stay. Right on the beachfront, warm, fresh and accommodating. Walking distance to good restaurants and pub. Lovely light and good sized bedrooms with really comfortable beds and fresh smelling linen. Newly fitted out kitchen, smart, roomy bathrooms - all very clean and stylish.

Would be very happy to stay here again as plenty of room and a really peaceful position. Best nights sleep I've had in ages!”

“We have just spent a very enjoyable weekend in March at Fleet House. The accommodation was excellent, spacious and really well equipped with whatever you could possibly need. Everything was fresh and clean and very comfortable, yet also quite luxurious! The décor, linen, towels and soft furnishings were all of a very high standard, good quality and tasteful.

We especially loved the view of the ocean and direct access to the beach. The enclosed garden is very private and the dogs had a great time too! We would highly recommend Fleet House for a peaceful and relaxing break.”

“Our stay at Fleet House was only brief, 25th - 28th October, but we all had a wonderful time, including our springer spaniel Brodie. Set in the most lovely location, Fleet House is the ideal place for a short, or more ideally, long stay. The house itself is beautiful with everything you could wish for included to make your stay perfect. We ate every meal in the conservatory looking out on the beautiful garden and it was just so lovely to kick back and relax in such amazing surroundings. The icing on the cake, especially for Brodie was the access to the beach from a gate at the bottom of the garden. Early morning walks were wonderful and watching the sun go down as we strolled along the beach in the early evening was amazing. Such a special place, one we sincerely hope that we can return to one day.”

“I recently had the good fortune to have a lovely stay at The Lodge on Mersea Island and really did find an absolute gem of a place to stay. The lodge was bright and airy with a lovely wide balcony overlooking the owner's beautiful gardens and open countryside. The kitchen was well appointed and the bedroom and lounge extremely comfortable. There was plenty to do locally with lots of history and some lovely beach walks - plus Friday Wood near Colchester was only a short drive away - so it was a dog lover's paradise. This is definitely a place I will be coming back to!”

“We recently stayed at Fleet house, what a wonderful location, perfect with the beach access and garden. On a rainy afternoon we had lunch in the conservatory still taking in the views, a lovely place to be. Bedding and towels super clean, they smelled divine! Living room comfy. We had everything we needed, thanks for having us, we will be returning next year for sure!!”

“We both had a lovely time last week during our stay. The Lodge could not have been more perfect and the island was lovely too. Having the use of the bikes was a great added bonus and we’re definitely recommending the place to our friends. Our only regret is not asking earlier in the stay about the fresh eggs as we could’ve had them every morning if we did!”

“We booked the accommodation online and it did not disappoint. We found it to be well designed, spacious and clean, and the kitchen, heating, TV and wireless internet all worked well. Car parking was convenient, the beds and furniture were comfortable and the location and views were excellent. The owner was on hand for any enquiries (but not intrusive), and it was easy to leave the accommodation in the clean condition in which we found it. Overall, five stars out of five.”

"We spent and idyllic week at Fleet House. The house is spotless and gorgeously decorated with lovely furnishings and a well equipped kitchen. All the bedrooms were large and had comfortable beds with luxurious linens on all the beds.

But the most wonderful thing about Fleet House is the location which is spectacular. The house is tucked away in a cul de sac and is peaceful and quiet. The views from the house are wonderful and watching sunrise and sunset each day is something we will not forget. We loved the gate at the end of the Garden which lead straight on to the beach. Each day we wandered along the beach and had a coffee at the Black Pearl!

The town of West Mersea has everything you need and we were reluctant to leave! We will definitely return and hopefully we will back at Fleet House before too long."

"Just spent 4 wonderfully relaxing days at Fleet House. Homely and spacious, everything we needed for our break was there. Lovely, comfortable furniture and immaculate bedrooms with stunning views from every window. We will be going again!"
