Our Location – Mersea Island.

Situated between the estuaries of the Colne and Blackwater rivers, Mersea is the most easterly inhabited island in the UK and has a warm and dry climate. There are long sandy beaches and a country park for walkers. The island is accessed by a causeway that can be covered by the spring tides. This is only for a maximum of 2 hours on a few days each month which is publicised on the Mersea Island website, or ring us and we can advise you. And if does happen, where else better to be marooned for a couple of hours, than a pub? Mersea Island Website
