Interaction with Guests
We are available should you have any problems.
Frinton-on-sea is one of the last unspoilt British seaside resorts. Located on the Essex Sunshine Coast, Frinton has a famous, gently shelving sandy beach, lined with traditional wooden beach huts and noted for its cleanliness and gentility.
Visitors to Frinton experience a peace and perfection not normally associated with many British seaside resorts. Here you will NOT find noisy arcades or tacky stalls; rather, Frinton retains a refined atmosphere and has a history of superb provision for outdoor pursuits. There are pleasant trails and beautiful gardens for walking; splendid opportunities for sailing, sea fishing, cycling, cricket and golf; and the Frinton Lawn Tennis club, one of the oldest in Essex.
During the busy holiday season, there is a programme of summer productions at the nationally renowned Frinton Summer Theatre, with both matinees and evening shows. Shopping amenities on Connaught Avenue, the high street, are convenient, with excellent restaurants, quality grocers, butcher and fishmonger, and an eclectic mix of national and local retailers.
Frinton is predominantly comprised of gracious Victorian houses from when the then small seaside village was developed as a resort in the 1860's. These lovely houses are built along broad, tree lined avenues leading towards a sweeping expanse of grass known as The Greensward, below which the fine sandy beach runs for the length of the town.
Frinton-on-Sea is a wonderful all year round resort, oriented around relaxed family fun at the seaside. It is also ideal for exploring the superb Essex coastline, the ancient harbour at Harwich and the estuaries of the rivers Stour and Colne. The beach has been awarded the Quality Coast Award 2008 and is recommended in The Marine Conservation Good Beach Guide 2009. The nearest large town is Colchester.
The house is less than half a mile to Frinton train station, for trains to London and Ipswich. London Liverpool Street to Frinton-on-Sea with one change at Thorpe-le-Soken takes about 1hr 45 mins.
By road from London:
Follow the A12 for 60 miles north east from London. Turn off just beyond Colchester (A12/Junc29) onto the A120 (for Colchester/Harwich), after about 5 miles turn off onto A133 (Clacton/Weeley), follow the signs to Weeley, then take the B1033 to Frinton.

If you are a reader, this is the house for you. It has an incredible book collection that includes world classics as well modern day brain candy. The location is phenomenal. A super short walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping. It's a very comfortable functional stay. I had trouble trying to get info on what sheets to bring so I ended up bringing the wrong size, but we made it work. There was a european twin, european double, and what seemed to be an american full maybe. The locals are very kind. I would stay there again.
We very much enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and tidy and perfect for a family get-away to the sea. High street and beach both within a few minutes' walk. The beach hut was an excellent bonus! We would certainly stay again. Our host checked in with us via text to be sure everything was ok and was very hospitable. Thanks.
Great place for a nice chill out break near the beach, great beach!, clean and sandy. The location is spot on, literally 2 mins walk to the beach, nice and spacious bedrooms and a big garden, and a very helpful and kind host who made our stay very easy.
My mother, my son and I had a relaxing and enjoyable few days in Frinton on Sea and Walton on Naze. We found Mary's home spacious and comfortable. It was a pleasure to meet Mary, the host. The neighbours were also friendly. She thoughtfully left us board games and puzzles for Ben. Having no tv insured the peace and we found plenty of interesting books to read. We enjoyed the sandy beach which is just a few minutes from the house. The coast is lined with beach huts and families spilling out onto the boardwalk picnicking. We had fresh fish, explored the thrift stores and a quirky antique shop along Connaught Avenue, and enjoyed cycling along the seafront to Walton. Ben was in child heaven after finding the amusement arcade at Walton Pier.
Fantastic! We had such a relaxing weekend in the house, which makes a great bolthole away from the stresses of city life. Mary our hostess went out of her way to make us feel at home, even popping over on the first morning with some breakfast goodies and the morning paper. Couldn't recommend enough!
