No smoking.Located in the quaint village of Birch these semi-detached cosy cottages 31049 and 31050 have been built with the purpose of a holiday home in mind. Adjacent to the owner’s home both properties comfortably sleep 2 guests with the option of extra guests with the sofa bed in the living space. Wood burners give a warm and welcoming feel to the cottages which have a contemporary theme throughout. It is a good base for exploring Essex and Suffolk birdwatching on the nearby nature reserves sea angling from Mersea Island or just enjoying the local beaches and countryside. Close to Colchester Britain’s oldest recorded town with a castle museums art gallery many Roman remains a good shopping centre Colchester Zoo and a mainline rail link to London 40 minutes.

    The property reviews and photos make clear that this isn’t an overly roomy cottage in some areas but once you accept this then Bay Tree Cottage 1 is a really good place to stay for exploring this part of the country. Colchester Zoo (well worth a visit) is virtually on the doorstep and other places such as Sutton Hoo, Lavenham and Southend are around an easy hours drive (or less). There is a shop about 5 minutes drive away and Colchester with supermarkets etc. is about 10-15 minutes. The cottage is clean, the bedroom good-sized and comfortable and the kitchen well - equipped. The owner, Trevor, answered a couple of queries I texted quickly and courteously and I’m confident if there had been any problems (there weren’t) help would have been easy to acquire. We had a very enjoyable week, and would stay again.
