By the sea and surrounded by fields, ideal for those who want to escape reality

Located in: Lee over Sands »
Our family have owned Humperdink, our cottage, since 1965 and we recently brought it into the 21st century, retaining its charm and character while adding some new creature comforts, including gas central heating with radiators and running hot water (which is a first for us never having this luxury at our cottage before!) to make any stay a memorable and pleasurable whatever the weather, or time of year.
We have no hidden extras with our home, bed linen, towels, and tea towel are all included in the price. All pillows and mattresses have protector covers.
Check in is 3 pm and check out is 11 am.
The surrounding area is fields, however the river, sea and beach are just over the sea wall, where you can walk with or without your dog and enjoy the views, swim in the summer or you can stay at our cottage, sit in the front garden watching the sheep in the field opposite or sit on the patio on the comfy rattan chairs at the back of the property and listen to the wildlife right on your doorstep, away from the hustle and bustle of reality. Your dog is very welcome, please just notify us about this when you book. There is a charge of £10 per dog per stay.
The cottage has two bedrooms upstairs, one with a wooden Shaker Kingsize bed that has views to the sea and a second bedroom with a wooden double bed, as well as a single bed, so this room can actually sleep three. This room has spectacular views across the fields and also to the sea, where you can see the Wind Turbines near Clacton, quite spectacular at night.
There is a room downstairs, at the back of the property, that can either be a bedroom or a playroom. This has a very comfortable double sized sofa bed from Ikea. This room has french doors which open out onto a decking area, complete with rattan chairs and a table, all ready for you to enjoy your meal or drink a la fresco.
In the summer you wake on a lovely sunny morning with the sun streaming in, encouraging you to open the patio doors and take in the peace and solitude of the area.
Our cottage has a delightful open living space where you can cook, eat and socialize. There is a fitted, fully equipped kitchen, with a washing machine, electric oven and hob, slow cooker, George Foreman Grill and microwave. In the living space there is a TV/DVD player/ radio in the comfy sitting area and a dining room table and 7 chairs. The bathroom, again, has been recently completely revamped with a shower over the bath. This runs off the hot water, provided by the combi boiler.
There is 4 G connectivity via a dongle, however, this is not suitable for games playing or for downloading films.
The unique location on the Essex coast, which incidentally is one of the driest places in the UK, is adjacent to the Essex Wildlife Trust EWT (www.essexwt.org.uk) reserve on Colne Point which has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) affording habitat for many different birds both resident and migratory. As a guest you are allowed access to the beaches and wildlife reserve, which could be described a very exclusive experience as only members and residents are usually allowed.
London is only 2 hours away by car and there is a main train station at Colchester which is approximately 20 mins away from Humperdink. However, there are smaller train stations at Gt Bentley and Clacton.
The nearest village is St Osyth and it's only about an hour away by foot or ten minutes by car. There is a Budgen shop on the road to Point Clear just after the turn off down Lee Wick Lane down to our cottage, just in case you've forgotten the basics although it is very well stocked and very reasonably priced.
Clacton with the pier, shops, amusements, Hasty's Adventure Farm (just to something else to do should you want to) and nightlife, Frinton with a long sandy beach being a more old fashioned seaside resort, Walton, Brightlingsea with an excellent fish and chips shop down on the quay and Colchester which has the cultural side with shops, theatre, Zoo, Spa to name just a few things to do, are all, at the most, thirty minutes away by car offering you a variety of amusements and shops or different beaches.
Escape to our comfy and welcoming Cottage and have a holiday you will always remember, away from the hustle and bustle of reality. The sea air will help you to also have a really good night's sleep and should you be lucky the most beautiful sunset.
Don't forget your wellies, old pair trainers or binoculars!
