Mersea Island is accessed by a causeway that can flood at high tide, so check the tide timetable before travelling.

What should we do if we accidently break something?

We would very much appreciate it if you would let us know if there are any breakages, so we can replace the items asap before the next guests arrive. Please let us know if you have any accidents i.e. spillages or stains, so the cleaners are prepared when they come to clean.

What should we do with our recycling and waste?

We would be grateful if you could take your recycling i.e. glass, paper, cardboard, plastics with you when you leave.

 GENERAL RUBBISH can be left in the black bag provided in the kitchen waste bin. The cleaner will remove this at the end of your stay if you haven't already put it out for collection on a Thursday.

What Our Guests Say

Beach Chairs
"Chandlers Cottage is a beautiful place to stay from which to enjoy the ambiance of Mersea Island. It is provides all that our family would wish for in a holiday home. Clean, very comfortable, spacious, well equipped, large private garden, good location, comfortable beds, bed linen and pillows, easy parking, great kitchen and good location with shop/pubs/beach close by. And to top all this the cottage has a lovely elegant ambiance. I would not hesitate in recommending the cottage and the host Jacqui who went out of her way to ensure we had a relaxing and happy time. Thank you. We really do hope to visit again."  Carol
