Daisy Beach House - to book please email [email protected] or call Anna on 07966 848604

If you like my beach huts then you are going to LOVE my beach house!!!

If you’ve ever thought how nice it would be to stay in one of my huts overnight then this is the place for you!   All of the personality and character of my beach huts but with the added bonus of lots more home comforts and a longer stay!

Daisy Beach House is styled on my beach huts - bright furnishings, white walls, tongue and groove panelling, bunting, fairy lights and lots of fun and quirky accessories!  You will really feel the holiday vibe when you walk in!  It has 4 double bedrooms sleeping 8 people and a huge new kitchen diner leading to a very colourful enclosed back garden with decking and covered seating area.  The best thing of all is it’s location in the street right behind the beach huts meaning you can easily nip back to the house if you’re on the beach to replenish supplies or (if you’re anything like me…) pick up something you’ve forgotten!  I have 7 beautiful front row beach huts at Walton too so you can go the whole hog and hire one of those too!  Please go to www.daisybeachhuts.com to check availability and book huts online.

The house comes with a beach hut included for stays in October through to March (excluding Easter weekend).  From April through to September a beach hut is subject to availability so if you want to guarantee one you will need to book and pay for it in the usual way on this website. If I have one available last minute on the day then it's yours for just a £5 cleaning fee.

 

The address of the house is 20 Woodberry Way, Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex, CO14 8EL and access is by a key safe.  Please contact me a week or so before your stay to get the key code.

 

It’s available to hire for Friday through to Monday (3 nights) or a Monday through to Friday (4 nights) basis.
The price is £300 for a 3 or 4 night stay during term time or £500 for a 3 or 4 night stay during the school holidays.
Please contact me [email protected] if you need clarification of what is term/school holiday time

£250 is payable upon booking and then the rental fee of either £300 or £500 is payable 8 weeks before your visit.  The £250 deposit will then be refunded within a week of your stay if there is no damage. (see Ts and Cs below for more on this)

 

Check in time is 3pm and check out is 10am.

 

Please let us know ahead of time if you will be using all of the beds so that we know how many to make up.  In each of the twin rooms, one bed can be stored beneath the other which frees up space in the room if you don’t need the second bed.  We find this most useful especially in the downstairs bedroom as we use it as a playroom.

 

Bed Linen is provided but please take your own towels.  Please strip the beds before you leave and leave the laundry in a pile on the landing upstairs

 

Tea Towels and dishcloths are provided

 

Quiet, well behaved dogs (2 max) are welcome (though strictly not on the beds or furniture!) You must scoop any poop immediately from the garden.  There will be a charge of £10 per dog for the extra cleaning involved.  Please do not leave dogs unattended in the house or garden.  

 

Please note, we want our guests to use the Daisy Beach House as we do, with respect and careful enjoyment.  Our neighbours are our friends and we do not want to cause a nuisance. If you make excessive noise or any anti-social behaviour, you will be asked to leave without refund.  Sorry to be blunt but I want to be very clear about this!

 

Strictly No hen or stag parties are permitted!

Surrounding area

Daisy Beach House is situated on Woodberry Way (https://goo.gl/maps/Taijv4d473j3bqAs8) which is the street right behind the beach huts at Southcliff so the beach and prom are easily accessible from the house.  It’s just a short stroll to the pier, the centre of Walton and an Aldi, Marks and Spencer Food and a fabulous pub called The Victory!  Walton also boasts the second longest pier in England, a marina with a lovely restaurant called Harbour Lights, several pubs, fish and chip shops, hair and beauty salons, souvenir shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, an indoor swimming pool complex, childrens play areas and even a virtual reality studio for all your gamers young and old!

 

Walton is not just a summer destination either! There’s nothing nicer (in my opinion) than a bracing walk along the prom and beach on a sunny winter’s day followed by a cup of tea in the shelter of a beach hut staring out to sea then a delicious meal in our favourite pub or fish and chips back in the hut!  There’s loads to do in summer and winter including bike rides, fossil hunting at the Naze, seal watching trips from the marina and of course, not forgetting, the pier with its arcades, bowling and rides meaning there’s something to do even on a rainy day!

 

Walton is a traditional seaside town, unique in that it is surrounded on three sides by the sea. Its three miles of gently shelving sandy beaches facing south-east stretch from Frinton to the Naze. To the north, the sea sweeps round the Naze into the backwaters, known as Hamford Water, and the Walton Channel stretches right down to Walton Mere, only 300 yards from the main beach. The Naze, as well as being a natural open space, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) famed for its fossils found in the Red Crag cliffs.

As well as these glorious natural features, Walton is known for its pier – the second-longest in the country – its yacht club and marina, and its iconic tower at The Naze from where panoramic views can be enjoyed of the Walton backwaters, Harwich and Felixstowe and the Suffolk coast.

The tower – built in 1720 by Trinity House as a navigational aid for ships making for Harwich Harbour – is now an art gallery and tea rooms.

Walton has a fascinating history, wonderful walks and nature reserves, and is one of the driest places in England, with an average rainfall of less than 20 inches. To help you discover Walton’s full potential, there are four very well waymarked trails to follow.
