Why Crispin Sinclair chose Colchester
A bit about the history of the cottage. I inherited
What makes this Cottage unique
This cottage originally belonged to my great grandmother. And my great grandfather is called Arthur Trevor Briscoe, a famous marine artist at the time. He spent a lot of time on Mersea Island painting. The cottage has been kept in the family since.

Charming holiday home
We have been to Mersea several times and really enjoyed our first stay in this lovely Mersea home. Booked here as the owner of a nearby property we were due to stay in cancelled our booking late in the day. Fortunately for us, Sunrays had some dates available!
Jennifer and Crispin are lovingly restoring the bungalow and large garden, whilst retaining its historical features. Very well-equipped kitchen. A really good-sized fridge/freezer. Ideal position as it is close to both shops and beach but very quiet too. Arrangements were excellent and access very straightforward. Would highly recommend.
Enjoyed place but not garden
We enjoyed our stay here , clean roomy and everything you need was there, we had a problem with garden , although big enough not really dog friendly, as the two small dogs could get out under the double gates , think to make it dog friendly would be good if they section part of garden off so you can let dogs out and not worry they are by the gates etc. If this was done would not hesitate to go back as lovely and quiet and not far from beach and shops .
Hi Jacqui, thank you for your ideas, I will look into doing this in the near future. Glad you enjoyed your stay! Crispin and Jennifer
Wonderful house, garden and area!
Thank you! Lovely to hear you enjoyed the cottage!
Unusual Character Property
We had a lovely break in West Mersea. The property is quirky but very comfortable and plenty of space for a family of six. Beds are great. Would like to stay again, but perhaps in the summer. Location in Mersea is excellent.
Thank you!!! Really lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay!!!
Very well equipped, quaint, comfy
Nice property , well equipped
A lovely house with a lovely garden. A great weekend was had by all.
Thank you!!! Great to hear you enjoyed your stay!!!
the property is less than 10 minutes walk to the beach. Tesco is 100 metres away. The famous seafood restaurants 'the company shed' and 'West Mersea oyster bar' is about 10 minutes walking distance.
