Nicky spends almost all of her free time in the garden and has big plans for it next year, so ‘watch this space’… all who stay here agree she has created a wonderful place for family and guests to enjoy, whether wandering around, or just sitting and relaxing with a cup of something or a glass of something stronger…
It’s been a busy few months here at Ransomes. In September we decided to enlarge the pond to make it even more of a feature. We also dug a drain to take all of the roof water from the annexe to help keep the pond level topped up. We’re thinking of removing most of the Koi, which while pretty, are eating all the weed! And weed will be needed if the ducks that are investigating the newly created island decide to nest.
We redecorated the exterior of the house to keep it looking fresh and loved! We’ve also clad the garage in barn boards to match the annexe. We think you’ll agree it looks fabulous now, and blends in much better with the rest of the buildings.
While we had a digger here for the pond extension we also removed the bank in the side garden, levelled the ground a bit and Nicky has planted an orchard with Pears, apples and Cherry trees.
We’re getting very booked up already and look forward to welcoming guests old and new in 2016.
While you are visiting the beautiful island of Mersea, why not stay with us at Ransomes Bed and Breakfast? The sun is still out over the South East coast, so come and enjoy the last few days of summer surrounded by countryside and beaches. Both Mersea Week and Cadet Week went with a bang this year; a brilliant time was had by all. The town regatta will be held on the 30th August this year, click here for more information.
Check out our new video which gives a glimpse of the highlights of Mersea, including sun, sea and sailing!
With such wonderful weather in Essex it is the perfect time for a long weekend away by the coast in our bed and breakfast. Enjoy the beautiful views from our back garden and dabble your feet into our pond with all our stunning fish! Mersea is lovely this time of year, so now is the perfect opportunity to relax by the sea – or go crabbing off the pontoon – just remember to bring the sun cream!
