Attractive property right on the sea front, literally 5 meters to the beach. Sea front garden to enjoy BBQ's etc and when the sea goes out you can collect mussels, cockles, oysters etc.
The bungalow itself is fully equipped with everything you should require. The top garden is just in front of the beach which has a boundary fence to stop the little ones escaping and a gate at the back.
Relax: Point Clear is recorded as being the driest area in the British Isles with the least rainfall.
Make the most of the summer months by relaxing on the beach or windsurfing on a blustery day. The sea sometimes resembles a mill pond at high tide, it can be so calm.
If you like sea fishing you can cast from the beach and catch bass and plaice (and crabs of course).
At dusk enjoy the sunset over Mersea Island it makes a lovely ending to the day.
These properties are quite unique because of their situation right on top of the beach. You can have bbq's on the beach as long as you tidy up afterwards. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy yourself.
Dining & Entertainment: If you like dining out in the evenings try St Osyth or Clacton.
Or on the site there is a fish & chip shop, a Chinese take-away,
local pub which children are welcome and entertainment.
St Osyths has restaurants and pubs for dining.(Chinese & Indian)
We recommend St Osyth's for fish and chips.
The Ferryboat public House 10 minutes walk and allows children. Outside the pub is a hot food hut which is open until 1.00am.(seasonal)
Point Clear shares its area with 'The Orchards Holiday Village'.
Although it is not a part of it and is separated from this area. As you are staying in a bungalow you will not be allowed access to |The Orchards Holiday Village|.
St Osyth has over 17 miles of coastline and was designated a Port in the 13thC. So boat building and coastal trade is a huge part of its history. Cargoes of hay and straw for London's stables and loads of sheeps cheese and butter also.
There are 120 listed buildings in St Osyth, 78 are within the Historic Town limits. Many of the farmhouses are listed, several now offer holiday accomodation. The moated aisled St Cleres Hall has been in continuous residential occupation since 1320 AD.
The main settlement of the village is designated as an Historic Town, and as such is protected by a long established and extensive conservation area. St Osyth is in essence a small medieval town clustered around the precinct walls of a once powerful Priory.
The Parish Church inside dominates the open space and is a grade I listed building which is very large and gives a clue to the prosperity of the village in Tudor and Georgian periods.
Time Team featured a search for the medieval quay a few years ago

About Andrew or Sharon
Well I'm the youngest of 3 siblings with an older brother and sister. We all do our bit in the hopeful smooth running of this property.
Andrew or Sharon purchased this Bungalow in 1960
Why Andrew or Sharon chose Point Clear
This property has been handed down to us from our parents and is now run by 3 of us. We grew up coming to this place every year and it has very fond memories. As kids in the 70's where there were no distractions like mobiles, pc's consoles etc, This was the perfect holiday for us and so much fun. This really was a great place and even now when we come down to work or clean or renovate there is always a lovely atmosphere..
What makes this Bungalow unique
When you stay here and the weather is nice ( that helps) . You could be anywhere in the world as this area is so unique. There are two significant tides each 24 hrs. It really is relaxing. The sunsets are excellent. Come and see for yourself.

good no problems apart from how to work telly.Bungalow lacking imformation but very well equipped with everything.lovely place,peaceful would only go back if wifi provided.
Fabulous as always
Just got home from another lovely relaxing weeks holiday at this place.We've been holidaying in this bungalow for over 10 years now and it never disappoints us. Right next to the beach, it has every home comfort you need for a relaxing holiday. You have to be quick to book though as the weeks get snapped up quickly,no doubt repeat booking from families like ours as it's affordable and well equipped as well as being safe for kids.
No problems. The location is a little windy.
Property was fairly basic but no problems. For a 3-bedroom place in the school summer hols, it is good value. Some low headroom in places so better if you are not too tall. We recommend finding out about the local ferry to Mersea and Brightlingsea.
Beautiful, clean and peaceful bungalow in a great location
My friend and I stayed at the bungalow in St Osyth for one week. It was in a beautiful location, peaceful and clean with all the amenities. I was pleasantly surprised with the accommodation. It was so close to the beach that you could see the sea from inside the bungalow. The Town Centre and the village are easily accessible either on public transport or with a car.
I would highly recommend this property and would stay there again.
Home from home
We have stayed here many times before and always enjoy our stay. The bungalow is clean, well equipped,right next to the beach and good value for money.
Peaceful area with breathtaking views
The property was clean and enough room for us four adults. Kitchen was quite a good size with plenty of pots and pans etc to cook with and a large fridge freezer.
Beds were all comfortable and there were things like kites, fishing equipment and some games to use.
Point Clear is in the estuary of the River Colne and River Blackwater. The overlooking view is of Mersea Island. 5 minutes from St Osyth 10 minutes from Clacton and 20 to Colchester. London Stanstead is approx' 50 minutes drive. Other Activities: Scenic walks Golf: Clacton for Golf.
