Ship Ahoy Cottages

About

Occupying a location on the edge of the Essex marshes and the Blackwater Estuary, the Ship Ahoy Holiday Cottages are an ideal base for a family holiday or short break where visitors can take advantage of fantastic walks around the isolated marshland coast, world class bird watching, a strong tradition of sailing centred on the nearby marina at Tollesbury, and other historic sailing ports such as Maldon and Mersea, and championship quality golfing at the Five Lakes Golf Complex.

Built in 2011 the three cottages sit alongside the Grade II listed 17th century Old Hall. Until 1917 it was a public house known originally as the Crooked Billet and latterly the Ship Ahoy (or Hoy) and which is now gateway to the 1,500 acre RSPB Old Hall Marshes bird reserve.

Situated within 30 yards of the sea wall and Old Hall Creek the properties sit in an unrivalled location and will appeal to anyone with an appetite for the great outdoors.

The accommodation has been built to a very high standard and each unit can accommodate up to 4 to 5 people.
