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.

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
