  • Mrs Hapeshi

    “A modern and beautifully clean property with a well equipped kitchen.”

    This was a perfect place to stay and explore the local area. Close enough to walk to the town and beaches. The house has off road parking and a nice garden area. Linda and Philip were lovely hosts and the extra touches of flowers and wine were lovely.

The property

Lying in the pretty seaside town of Walton-on-the-Naze is this charming and contemporary build, Joan's Gem, offering a small family or group a delightful setting from which to enjoy the Essex coast.

Discover sandy beaches, beautiful backwaters, a picturesque marina and a classic pier all just a short distance from this two-bedroom, stylish abode.

Enter straight into the open-plan living space, passing the handy cloakroom, and find first the sleek kitchen area where you'll be rustling up tasty meals for the family.

Behind bright white units find integrated appliances including a dishwasher and fridge/freezer, with an AEG electric oven and a gas hob too, and finally a washing machine.

Come together around the dining table at mealtimes, discussing plans for the day in the morning with a fresh breakfast and reconvening in the evening with a glass of wine.

Sink into one of the the plush sofas after a day outdoors, relaxing into the evening by watching TV, or make use of the lovely enclosed garden in the summer by sitting out and enjoying the last of the day's sun.

Head upstairs to find two lovely bedrooms - a double and a twin, both with plenty of storage space for your things.

Freshen up in the spotless family bathroom which is home to a bath with an overhead shower, basin and WC.

Just a short walk down the road you will find an M&S food hall with bakery and an Aldi supermarket, whilst going right into the centre of Walton-on-the-Naze is where you'll discover the friendly pubs and welcoming restaurants, along with classic fish and chip shops!

Check out the miles of flat, sandy beach and spend sunny days having a fantastic time with your family whether making sandcastles, playing games or taking a paddle in the shallow, safe waters.

Walton-on-the-Naze's pier is the second longest pier in Great Britain and hosts one of the world's oldest operating amusement parks; find everything from funfair rides to bingo and sea fishing over the sides!

Enjoy a boat trip with a local wildlife expert, taking in the beautiful coastal views and wonderful backwaters along the Twizzle and Walton Channel, depicted in Arthur Ransome's book Secret Water; Try to spot some cute seals and seabirds, with seals especially liking the unique environment of the Naze, a flat marshy headland and an official Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Explore the Walton Trails which include four different routes with one taking you to the best wildlife spots along the Naze, a history trail showing the local history, a World War II trail exploring the role the Naze had at this time, and finally a 'Little Explorer' trail designed to keep kids entertained!

Walton-on-the-Naze is an historic seaside town on the Essex coast offering everything from bird watching to sea fishing. Every Thursday there is a market that offers local produce, fish, flowers and plants. There are also plenty of pubs and restaurants, including those selling the famous "pie and mash" of Old London - something to satisfy everyone's taste in this historic town. For the young at heart there is the Walton-on-the-Naze pier which offers all day entertainment for a one-off price, home to one of the largest undercover funfairs in East Anglia. Why not take a boat trip to watch the seals resting on the mud banks or for the more adventurous, take a fishing trip where you can catch Skate, Cod or Sea Bass, when in season. The cliffs at Walton-on-the-Naze form one of the finest geological sites in Britain and are classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. With plenty of historic houses within easy driving distance, sea fishing, golf courses and cycle rides, as well as everything that a thriving seaside town can offer, Walton-on-the-Naze is a perfect location for a holiday break on the Essex coast.
