“Island isolation- perfect for birdwatchers”
Reviewed 27 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011
people found this review helpful

We stayed for a weekend in February and came back for our main holiday in July as we loved it so much. The island is a peaceful retreat, very isolated, yet it's in Essex! It's a proper island, access is restricted to low tide and driving across is a real adventure. We spent our time walking, watching birds (including owls, harriers, waders and geese), enjoying the scenery and just chilling out. Oh and we did some Kayaking too! I can't recommend it enough if you want to get away from it all and are happy without easy access to a pub or shops! However it won't suit everyone, read the details on the web site and/or contact the owner before booking.
