This place is gorgeous, well-maintained, and really close to the beach. We were a group of 19 friends looking for a weekend away not too far out of London and The Beach House was perfect. The town itself (Frinton) doesn't have much going on but you don't need it to with a house like this. The Orangery is great for games and chatting, the dining room fit us all in and the bedrooms were clean and very comfortable. Good marks for the shower and hot water situation too - with 19 showering it was impressive they all stayed hot and high pressure! Definitely recommended for families or friends.
