A Brand new cottage to us - with some photos still waiting to go up :) !

This lovely Coastal Cottage with its sea views is perfect for families and dog owners wanting to get away from it all, the garden is secure and there is direct access to a private woodland (great for doggies).

The walks are really good and take you down to the sea wall and past important bird santuries and famous salt marshes.

Tollesbury has a lively Marina with fishing trips and a salt water & sand play area for children - it is a just 10 minute walk through the fields to .

We are taking photographs of this beautiful cottage this week and we are accepting guests from 23.6.17


  • The Wobbin is a charming 18th Century grade II listed farm cottage with beautiful views over farmland, the Tollesbury Wick Nature reserve and onto the Blackwater Estuary and the sea.
  • Originally built as a pair of farm-workers cottages, now been combined to form a delightful and generously sized three bedroom house.

Cottage Walk Through


  • Downstairs there are two cosy sitting rooms both with log fires as well as a cosy dining room and a conservatory which makes the perfect setting for a glass of wine to accompany the stunning sunsets.
  • There is also a spacious and well equipped kitchen complete with dishwasher and a convenient downstairs loo .
  • Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms, one has a Kingsized bed and the other a Super King which can be divided into a twin bed.
  • There is a comfortable day bed nestled in the open ‘Suffolk Landing’ bedroom, this open room also has a single truckle bed which can be made up to accommodate an extra child.
  • All bedrooms have a quaint arched mansard roof.
  • Sleeping capacity: you can sleep 5 people in 3 bedrooms - a double bedroom, a twin or double bedroom and a single in the open 'Suffolk Landing' bedroom.
  • You can add an extra single in the 'Suffolk Landing' by using the 'truckle bed' but we would suggest that it is probably best to have 2 children in that open room - see this link for info and photos





  • The cottage has gated 'off road parking' and sits in a completely enclosed garden.
  • There are several different footpaths to explore directly from the cottage, including a track along the adjacent woodland Nature Reserve where a path has been cleared specially for you, this path ends in a clearing with seating from where you can enjoy spectacular views of the estuary – this is a great ‘safe’ walk for doggies but you will need to keep them on a lead as part of the woodland is used for educational visits.
  • You can take footpaths directly from the cottage to the ‘Sea Wall’ walks which can go on for miles with horizon wide coastal scenery and significant wildlife interests in and around the two nationally important nature reserves and marshland.
  • There is a 10 minute walk from the cottage by country footpath to Tollesbury Marina.

  • Monday, 3rd of April, 2017, Pam & Barry:

    We have been lucky enough to spend about 9 weeks at The Wobbin. The tranquility of the cottage and garden hits you after driving through the hustle and bustle of Tollesbury village. We have enjoyed every aspect of our stay from the comfortable beds, beautiful skies, views from the sun lounge, to great walks. The cottage is in a beautiful location facing the estuary and surrounded by the Essex countryside, abundant with birds and wildlife. We have found our stay comfortable and relaxing. The Harbour Bistro serves great food and there is a bakery, butchers and fruit stall within walking distance. The owners provided a warm welcome to us. We hope you enjoy your stay here as much as we have.
