About Self-Catering Holidays in Brightlingsea

Brightlingsea is in north Essex on the sunshine coast which includes Calcton on Sea, Frinton and Walton on the Naze - a popular coastline for holidays and weekend breaks. The town is on the estuaries of Brightlingsea Creek and Colne which blend with the waters of the Blackwater and Thames Estuaries. A charming leisure area is close the river at Promenade Way where there is a boating pond, dozens of colorful beach huts, a paddling pool for children, an artifical sandy beach, swimming pool, skate park, popular cafe and childrens' playground. There is plenty of parking and toilets for visitors. The sailing club is in a prominent position near the ferry landing and harbour. Scores of small boats can be seen moored in the creek.

A former fishing town, renowned for oyster fishing, visitors can still enjoy oysters at the Rosebud public house. An award winning fish and chip shop with restaurant serves up traditional seaside fare at Scooby Snax (Tel 01206 306 542).

Brightlingsea is a good location for a self catering break, it has a relaxed air and plenty to see and do in the area. Children would thoroughly enjoy sailing toy boats and using inflatables in the shallow paddling pool.

People come to for walks along the river bank and to picnic on the beach with their families. Interesting places to visit nearby are Mersea Island, the city of Colchester for Roman origins - a visit the castle, clock museum and zoo is highly recommended. The beautiful scenery of Constable Country is a short drive away, as are the historic villages of north Essex and Suffolk.
