Travel and Leisure have recently voted West Mersea Beach as one of the top five beaches in the UK, amongst four other beaches from Cornwall, Dorset and the Isles of Scilly. West Mersea is just one of the astounding coastlines close-by to Gladwins Farm, and it is a fantastic choice for a day out while you are staying with us at Gladwins Farm.
With stunning views, long walks, great crabbing spots and a variety of bars and restaurants serving the delicious fresh local seafood, it is the perfect place for a family visit.
Explaining the reasons behind the selection of West Mersea Beach, Travel and Leisure said;
“The sleepy haunt of Mersea Island draws day trippers from across Essex for its unblemished saltwater marsh landscape and crowd-free beaches. And it’s worth a detour even if you’re not in the region: coastal charm abounds at West Mersea Beach, where rows of colourful pastel beach huts lining the shore ensure plenty of Instagram opportunities and a picture-perfect setting for long walks. After you’ve worked up an appetite with your walk, stop by the Company Shed, an unpretentious seafood shack where you can toss back all the oysters and freshly-caught fish you want and still not make a dent in your travel budget”
