Coastal Family-Friendly 3 Bedroom Cottage at Heybridge Basin, Maldon
Navigation Cottage is a pets and family-friendly coastal retreat that overlooks the lock at Heybridge Basin near Maldon in Essex
. The interior of this period cottage is traditionally attractive; old oak beams adorn much of the ground floor living area, the dining, sitting rooms and kitchen.
A woodburner makes the heavily beamed sitting room especially cosy and welcoming to relax in. A sofa and chairs are arranged around a hearth rug in front of the fire. Take a comfy seat and browse the tourist literature about where to visit in next in Suffolk
. The town of Maldon is a few minutes drive away and is a wonderful place to take the children. Promenade Park in the town offers a splash park, boating lake, adventure playground, maze and swings for children. There are plenty of curious independent shops in the high street and a wide selection of eateries. It is a good place to purchase food to eat back in your holiday cottage should you not wish to eat out.
The kitchen has a range cooker and microwave just in case you hope to whip up a feast on holiday although there are a couple of pubs close to the lock. The table in the dining area can seat four people and a high chair is provided for little ones. Wooden floorboards throughout the sitting and dining area make this holiday home easy to keep spick and span – even with children or dogs about. The kitchen and conservatory both have a practical tiled floor.
The conservatory offers another dining table – this is a bright and airy place to sit and eat breakfast whilst enjoying sunshine and birdsong. Doors from the conservatory lead out into the enclosed back garden which has a BBQ.
Upstairs are three bedrooms and a bathroom (separate shower room with WC on the ground floor as well). The main bedroom has a kingsize bed. There is also a double and twin bedroom (extra charge for an occupancy of 6 and use of the twin room).
This historic Heybridge Basin holiday home has Internet with WiFi
. Bicycles are also available. A cycle ride along the tow path to see all the colourful boats moored there is interesting.
Please note that guests are welcome to bring a cat if they wish and two dogs.
