Seashells is a one bedroom apartment comfortably sleeping 4 adults, 2 in the bedroom and 2 on the superb leather double bed settee. There is also a huge leather corner sofa in the living room which squares up with the pouffee to make another very comfortable double sleeping area for up to 2 occasional guests (for a small extra charge). This apartment has been tastefully and sympathetically restored over many months and offers its guests quality relaxing modern comforts.

The huge living area is approximately 20' x 16' directly overlooking the beach through the huge arched original Georgian sash windows, with feature marble hearth and fireplace, high ceilings, chandeliers, solid pine flooring and open plan kitchen area.

There is a large jacuzzi bath with shower, perfect to relax in after a hard day sunbathing on the beach or an out-of -season stroll to the Naze. All essentials are in the new kitchen area. White gloss kitchen units, microwave, oven, fridge with freezer section etc have all been built in to the original arch. Parking is never a problem as you can park in front of Seashells

You can walk for miles along the sands to the Naze or to Frinton and on towards Clacton

Be lulled to sleep by the sound of the sea in your ears!

Further details indoors

Seashells is full of character and very comfortable. The apartment was gutted by the owner and put back together to maintain the period charm whilst incorporating all modern comforts, mainly for her own use. Hence the furnishings are all excellent quality, with huge leather corner sofa, very comfortable leather double sofabed, real pine floors & chandeliers.

The central heating is exceptionally efficient so it is a great place to stay out of season as well as in the summer.

The jacuzzi bath is a little extra luxury after a long day on the beach chasing after the children or just as a romantic end to the day if you fancy sharing it!!

There are 2 huge Georgian windows that directly overlook the beach just 5 yards from your door and if you fancy something other than watching the sea, there is SKY tv and freeview channels.

Further details outdoors

You can park the car directly in front of the apartment. Your car and the small access road are the only things between you and the beach!

The South East England region

Situated along the Essex Sun Shine Coast, Seashells is located right on the sea front between the town centre and the Walton Naze with its famous tower which now hosts a coffee/tea room and a gallery. The Naze and the Walton backwaters are a bird watchers paradise with numerous species populating the area as well as making for excellent rambling (walking) and cycling.

The Tourist Office told me this is the warmest place in England..not sure its entirely true, but certainly it always seems to be sunny in Walton when it is cloudy a little inland as you approach the sea!

Walton on the Naze makes the ideal base from which to explore this wonderful coast line, with many quaint villages and village pubs nearby as well as the historical fishing town's of Harwich and Felixstowe a short car journey away.

A few miles drive away is Clacton factory shopping village, with many brand names at discount prices and the historical old town of Colchester.

Frinton on Sea

Walton on the Naze is a traditional English seaside town which still feels like it is in a time warp somewhere in the 60s. It has a wonderful yellow sand beach running from Clacton, through Frinton on sea (where there is a great home made ice cream shop near the beach end), to the lovely Walton Naze (a nature reserve with fantastic wildlife including seals in the backwaters.)

The pier at Walton has amusement arcades and fair ground rides including the dodgems, waltzer as well as tenpin bowling & bingo and is only a 10 minute walk along the promenade. I hear the fishing is good too if thats on your agenda!

There are all the shops you need in Walton including a Tesco Express and Co op and lots of old fashioned hardware, bakery and sweet shops too.

There are numerous restaurants and take aways in Walton. There is an excellent Thai in the town centre and the Carvery at Harbour Lights with stunning views over the harbour and Walton backwaters as well as some excellent seaside fish and chippies!!

There is a swimming pool just behind the apartment so if you fancy a change from the beach you can make use of the flume if you are feeling brave or need to exhaust the children!

There is also a golf course a few minutes drive away

"Perfect spot and beautiful apartment"

I stayed here last month with my partner. It was perfect, just what we were looking for.The location is superb, right on the beach, you can see the sea from the window - what more would you want from… More

I am so pleased you loved Seashells as we do. Thank you for taking the time to let others know. Sadly it is only people who do not appreciate the wonderful location and all the hard work we put into Seashells to make it somewhere special to relax and enjoy, who take the time to review.
We look forward to welcoming you in our special place by the sea again in the very near future.

"Thought we were booking into a hostel!!!"

Ignore all the photos on the website because what you see is NOT what you get!! When my husband and I arrived we thought we had arrived at the wrong address. All the photos show beautiful pictures of… More

All the photos on the website were taken within the last few months. The sea and beach views were taken just a few feet from the apartment. The interior pictures were taken last summer and Seashells looks as good now as it did then. The pictures are real.
The front of the property is being painted in April when the weather allows. All my guests are made aware of this. It does not affect either the quality of the inside of the apartment or the wonderful views.
Please don't let this review put you off. In April the outside will look as good as the inside!
If any problems arise during your stay, you have two numbers to call. We can't fix it if we don't know its broken!! If the winds are too strong, the satellite cannot be fixed until the winds die down as the satellite is on the roof of the third floor. We have both video, dvd player and many videos. If you want a new dvd, you can always hire one.
This is a genuine Georgian building. She has her faults but she has character and we think is something rather special.
Come stay and let us know what you think.
