A lovely apartment on Brightlingsea Quay where you can watch the husle & bustle ot daily life around the boating community. Super views over to Mersea Island. Close to a good little pub The Yachtsmans Arms.

Nice location, just needs a bit of a update throughout.

If you want somewhere to relax & unwind look no further. On occasions we even had our coats on to go out, but found ourselves enjoying the views from the windows & still be there 2 hours later! However there are lots of little paths to walk & interesting places to explore quite close by, ie: Walton on Naze, Frinton, Harwich (particularly the docks Read morearea for us) & Mersea Island.

Stunning apartment, stunning views. A superb holiday.

I have rarely stayed in an appartment with a better view than this. The moment you wake up and hit the living room, you are rewarded with a show that never bores. Nature (tides) and man (vessels) make this a tremendous lookout. Local pub very laid back and good ales, ciders and food, at very good prices. Nearby Chinese takeout very good, and BrightRead morelingsea has a Tesco Express and a Coop Superstore. Enjoyed the sat and bluesy now that we are back home. Hide

Its everything we hoped it would be. Balcony faces south and west. Sun all day.

Reviewed by Robert, 14th June 2019

View from lounge was fantastic. Bed was really comfortable. We cooked every day and there was enough equipment to cope. Very quiet position and lots happening on the water. Cant put my finger on what I wasnt keen on but wont be back. If you like sailing it would be great.
