Top tips for holidays in Essex – the only way is…

We have some ideal self-catering cottages in Essex, perfect for exploring this wonderful county.  Self catering means freedom from time keeping, meal times when you want them and where you want them!  Perhaps a picnic in the middle of a stubble field or coffee in a thermos on a deserted beach on a winter’s morning – anything is possible.  Get friends and family together under one roof and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune!  Great fun, especially when everyone chips in to prepare meals (and wash up afterwards!).  Essex has so much to offer – apart from the sweeping panoramas, big skies and far reaching views, there are hundreds of miles of coastline, some lovely beaches and interesting marshland.  With beautiful countryside and great access to London, taking one of our self-catering cottages in Essex means you get the best of both worlds!

If you enjoy a bit of action, then cycling through Constable Country and stopping off at Dedham Vale where John Constable painted some of his most famous works of art, would be a dream trip.  We have some fabulous self-catering cottages in Essex which are also pet friendly.

If you love wildlife, you can take a boat from Burnham-on-Crouch to Wallasea Island where one of the largest wetland reserves in Europe is in the process of being created.

Amazing marshes – wonderful walking and birdlife

The River Crouch is close enough to the North Sea to be tidal which means there’s a rich diversity of wildlife. One of the UK’s best kept secrets… Essex has so much to offer and is so close to London!  Hop on the train and be in the most gorgeous countryside in less than an hour.  With historic houses such as Audley End House & Gardens in Saffron Walden, Colchester Castle and the RHS Garden at Hyde Hall, Essex has plenty of hidden gems.
