Why Phil & Carol Torr chose East Mersea
Having lived in Essex for most of our lives we had long been in love with Mersea and it's unique atmosphere and attractions. We were delighted to have a chance to acquire such a beautiful property in one of our favourite places.
What makes this Cottage unique
'High Hoe' is at the same time easily accessible and wonderfully secluded. Even at the height of the holiday season it resists the rush and stress of the modern world. You feel so close to nature and the sea and yet only a few minutes walk or drive from all the amenities the island has to offer. High Hoe is suitable both for couples and families. There is free Wifi available. The free use of the beach hut will give your kids endless fun on the sandy beach at West Mersea.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
High hoe is a unique little cottage with lots of character.
We really enjoyed our stay, with great accommodation, beautiful surroundings and lots to do. We’ll definitely return.
Had a lovely 3 night break at High Hoe in August. The cottage was very quirky but really comfortable and we had a fun afternoon escaping the rain just playing games and relaxing in the lounge. The beach hut was an added bonus, unfortunately not left totally clean by the previous guests but we didn’t let that spoil things for us. All in all a perfect little getaway for the family.
Charming house, great beach hut!
Very charming, lovely place to stay for some peace and quiet and the beach hut is fantastic!
Lovely stay at the High Hoe cottage!
Lovely cottage in a nice quiet area. Very tranquil, we heard and saw some rare birds. Everything is well kept and clean. Very complete cottage. We really enjoyed our stay - the upstairs double bed was heavenly, we however did not sleep in that bed. Our sister in law did. We took the single beds in the downstairs bedroom and I found the mattrasses to be not as comfy as the double bed upstairs. Pillowtop mattrasses would have been just perfect for those beds also if you ask me. If that change would be made i would go back to stay there at the blink of an eye. The surrounding area has enough to offer. We did go to West Mersea a few times though we never got around to checking out the beach hut. That would have been great. We enjoyed having dinner at the pub nearby. Nice people - nice area. I recommend this place!
We loved our stay at your cottage, the pheasants on arrival were unexpected. The cottage was very quirky a real get away. It was very clean and we'll equiped. The use of the beach hut made our stay extra special. Communications were excellent with the owner. Would highly recommend.
Fantastic and memorable!!!
This cottage had the ultimate ‘wow’ factor. Our children’s response was “we are in a real life fairytale!” Absolutely stunning and tranquil.
Spotlessly clean and comfortable.
The beach hut was the icing on the cake for us, 10 mins drive away and just perfect. Our children love playing outdoors so this holiday was wonderful for us.
Cannot recommend highly enough!!!!
Free WiFi, 200 meters from coastal path, good food in local pub 1 mile away.
Great wine from Mersea Island vineyard and fantastic seafood all within easy reach. Sorry no pets.
