Boasting a garden and a bar, The Victory at Mersea is set in West Mersea. This property also has a restaurant and a children's playground. Both free WiFi and private parking are accessible at the inn.... One employee in particular really excelled. I can't remember her name now but her service, attitude and personality enhanced our stay.

Brans Estate is located in West Mersea, 5 minutes' walk from the beach and shops. There is a dining room and a kitchen on the ground floor, with a table for 6 people, along with a wood stove. The owners made everything so easy for our stay with clear explanations. At the property everything was provided. Everything we needed was provided and it made our stay so comfortable. Thank you for taking so much care. We felt the welcome and care in your lovely home. It was certainly a home away from home.

Located in West Mersea, just 21 miles from Freeport Braintree, Island House provides accommodations with a garden, a shared lounge, a terrace and free WiFi. Jamie was an amazing host and prepared a last minute stay for us due to another host failing on us! Island house exceeded our expectations and Jamie and family were amazing. The house was comfortable and spacious with a lovely big garden and driveway. Jamie provided a booklet with everything we needed for our stay at west Mersea island! Would defo recommend to anyone who wants a short family break in a nice quiet island!
We loved it was clean comthy good shower good bed . Tv. close to the sea & restaurants which was great can't wait to go again only I little things no direction for the kitchen. Best restaurant the oyster shack
We went to walk around the island and to see the sights. Coastal path is poorly maintained (and even broken and dangerous) in some parts. Very few footpaths or cycleways anywhere (none on the only access road to the island for example). On the plus side there are some great views across the Blackwater from West Mersea and out to the North Sea from the Eastern end of the island. There are also some great sandy beaches.
Such a lovely quiet place, but with lots going on if you want to take part. Boat trips, sailing, crabbing... You can travel quite fare out when the tide is low. Very muddy, so either go bare foot, or wellies :) The beach has some great spots, but is very pebbly with lots of shells, mostly oyster. As for a boating trip: We went on the Rib Tour, and WOW, that was mega! It cost us £75 for two people, but it was so so worth it! The trip lasted an hour and we had another family with us, a woman and two teenage boys. We started off with slow 8 knot exit from the harbour, and then the 225hp V6 took us racing about 30 knots across the water. The captain took us to the Radio Caroline ship, and to see some interesting points on the island. The Rib is so manoeuvrable, and the skipper showed off with some fast loops, and sharp turns. The salty spray wetting our faces. We also visited the Museum, which is very interesting, and has some great artefacts. There's lots to read too! The shops are great. A few gift shops, cafes and a Tesco Express! There's lots of fish places to eat, especially oysters in the old village. We had a great dinner at The Coast Inn. Has an EXCELLENT large non-smoking/vaping decking area so you can enjoy your food and drink without the smokers about ;) A great place to chill out indeed :)
We stayed at The Victory, with a splendid sea view. The location was lovely to walk around. Opposite our Hotel was the Famous West Mersea Oyster Bar. Along the seafront they have some lovely eating places. We had a Sunday Roast at the Coast Inn, . The food was brilliant, the drinks quite cheap £3.40 pint. This is also is Dog Friendly as was our hotel. The Victory is a great place to stay if you have booked a trip out to sea The Radio Caroline Ship as it has it's own parking. Great walks down to the sea. A short walk (15 mins) to town where there are more pubs an Indian and Tesco Express. Also a Museum. (check times as not always open).
West Mersea is a place full of character, especially if you like to look at boats. We love seafood and you can watch the oysters being unloaded so you know they are fresh. There is a little pier for crabbing. Walk further along where the road finishes and you have lovely dog walks. Pubs are available and go into the town and there is a good choice of coffee shops.
Such a friendly place, the art cafe was fantastic and definitely recommend. When the tide is out, the long beach walks out to sea are amazing. Enjoyed the seafood at Dawn for lunch and the walks in nature were breathtaking.
