Why Essex?

A stunning East Anglian county with London to the west and the coast to the east, with a range of points of interest across the gradient from urban sprawl to rural coastline. Book a holiday rental in Essex and see a different side of England every day!

About Essex

This large county is sure to have something for everyone. Whether you're looking for some seaside fun on sunny beaches; to explore the open, green countryside, stopping off in quaint pubs; to foray into outer London; or to explore local historical sites, Essex is a charming place to seek a varied holiday that'll please the whole family.

What to Do

Head into the town of Basildon to see the Glass Bell Tower - the first glass bell tower in the world.

Colchester Zoo has some of the greatest collections of cats and primates in Europe, and is an award-winning attraction to boot!

Top Essex Travel Tips

Essex is a large county, so to make the most of your trip and experience everything, you'd be best off with a car. Whilst public transport is good in the big towns, the more rural areas can be hard to get to this way.

To experience a little bit of everything whilst surrounded by beautiful scenery, book your next holiday rental in Essex.

Baye House A Beautiful Georgian Guest House in Co
Hen weekend in Colchester

Had the best weekend in Colchester for my sisters hen... The house and it's prime location ticked all the boxes, for what resulted in an excellent weekend. The house is in walking distance to the town, amnesties and night life and only a short drive from the spa which we had an enjoyable day Saturday relaxing and being pampered - would definitely recommend! Anne was a fantastic host and her house is beautiful and full of character. It is decorated to perfection and I enjoyed my time at the house, so much that I didn't want to leave. Thank you from me and 15 happy hens for a fabulous weekend... If I visit Colchester again, I'll definitely be staying at Baye House.see more

DRIFTWOOD all ground floor, WiFi, family-friendly, near to beach in
A great place to stay.

Driftwood is a wonderful holiday cottage, very clean inside and all the modern amenities. The front garden/area is all paved so you can park off of the street. If you have any questions, Ray, the caretaker is only a phone call away and was very helpful and friendly. My daughter was ecstatic that there was wifi and it was very fast. The beach was only 5-7 minutes walk away. The bathroom (we're from America) was great with a nice shower with hotwater whenever you needed it, without having to worry if the boiler was on. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in the Clacton/Walton area.see more
