“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.”

“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 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.”
