We had a really lovely day at the Mersea beach hut today. We love finding dog friendly things to do in Essex and this was perfect for us and our two pugs! It was really well presented and very spacious on the inside. The cafe was really close by to grab some lunch and the car park is so close! We can’t wait to to back!
