The bungalow was clean and finished to a high standard The garden was private. There was a short walk to the beach. The access road had big potholes so a 4x4 would be an advantage.

lovely clean and welcoming cottage
Seaside cottage was a lovely place to stay and very close to the beach. It was clean and tidy at a nice garden area for our 7 and half month old puppy to play in. The local pub and shop owners were very friendly. Although there wasn't many shops around where we were it was ideal for what we wanted and not far from Clacton.We would definitely stay there again.

Lovely, well eqipped little cottage
I stayed here with my daughter and very boisterous dog, Barlow the Dalmatian. The cottage was VERY clean and well equipped with totally enclosed outdoor space for dogs. Barlow loved running around on the beach (which was literally 2 minutes from the door as the description said.) The beach was nice and quiet and if you want more life, Clacton-on-Sea is only a 10 minute drive away.
Would definitely come back.

An excellent base from which to both relax and explore the area
Had a wonderful relaxing holiday in an area we had never visited before. So close to the sea, dog friendly and welcoming,
Tip 1. Visit Clacton Town Hall and pick up the free map of Clacton, Jaywick, Jaywick Sands etc.
Tip 2. The locals are very helpful and will talk to you and advise on where to go for meals, or places to visit etc.

In Saxon time Jaywick was called ;Clacton-inga-wick which become Clacton-jeywick and then shortened to Jaywick. The Sands addition was made to highlight the outstanding award-winning stretch of sandy beach it boasts. It is situation approximately 2 miles west of Clacton on Sea. Jaywick Sands was the site of a dairy farm, eventually sold by the landed gentry. There are a number of stories around the history of the area. One story is that small plots of land were purchased by Londoners, many of whom were workers at the Dagenham car plant, which is the reason why many of the streets in the most westerly section are all named after cars ie Rover, Hillman and Buick. The area is most popular with walking enthusiasts, being a bracing 20 minute walk to Clacton Pier along the seafront and dog-owners who can walk their dogs on the beach nearest the cottages all year.
