About the neighbourhood
Off the coast of north east Essex, 9 miles from the historic Roman town of Colchester with its ancient castle, is the unique island of Mersea, a haven for food, yachting and bird enthusiasts. Mersea has a variety of restaurants, including the well-renowned Oyster Bar and the Company Shed. It is an ideal place to while away many hours doing nothing but have a coffee and watch the world go by or to browse the local independent shops, galleries and museum. For more active people there are numerous walks, water activities or bikes for hire; Mersea is a perfect retreat to get away from it all.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Stansted: 66.0 km
Railway: Colchester North: 17.0 km
Ferry: Harwich: 41.0 km
From Colchester, use the B1025. Cross the Strood, take first left toward East Mersea. Take first right into Dawes Lane. At end of Dawes Lane, turn right into East Road. Take second left into Fairhaven Avenue; Oakleaves is at no 19 on the left hand side. Beware as The Strood cannot be crossed at high tide. This is what makes Mersea an island as it can be cut off at high tide depending on weather conditions and the time of year. There is a regular bus service from Colchester to Mersea.
