Olderfleet is a very private b&b situated in the traditional seaside resort of Clacton-on-Sea, Essex. We are very much a ‘home from home’ b&b and uphold the values of comfort, accessibility and privacy.
We are centrally located with access to the train station, town centre and beaches only minutes away, but despite our central location our spacious Victorian house is quiet and comfortable. During the warmer spring/summer/autumn months, guests are invited to enjoy the use of our gardens, both back and front.
Free WiFi is available in all rooms, and all rooms have flat-screen TV’s, wine chillers and portable fans.
Parking on our drive is presently restricted so must be booked in advance but this is normally not a problem as there is a huge car opposite which is free from 6pm to 8am. There is also unestricted parking in adjacent streets, only minutes away from us. We can also offer secure parking on-site for bikes and motor bikes behind a padlocked gate.
Although the bathroom is shared, we are very small and this has never been a problem with guests; indeed all shared facilities are cleaned on a daily basis.
The price is per person per room and includes breakfast with the option of sandwiches for your journey if you have to leave very early – we do not like our guests to leave hungry!
Clacton Pier offers a wide range of entertainment for all the family and is open all year round, the one exception being Christmas day. We love the logo at the side of the Pier – “No.1 North Sea” – how better to describe Clacton’s location ?!
Before you get to the Pier itself, there is a Fun Park which offers loads of rides and attractions, for example swings, crazy golf, 3D theatre, ‘drop your stomach and lunch rides’ etc and all you would expect for family entertainment.
Water sports, such as wind-surfing and jet-ski’s at Martello Bay, have to be booked so please refer to their web sites.
For those golfers out there, again we have courses but please refer to their web sites to book.
In August, Clacton hosts its ever popular Air Show over two days and our Greensward is packed with street food and craft marquees. The displays are fantastic and free so just bring yourselves along and enjoy!!
We also host various scooter and bike rallies and, again, please refer to their web sites.
The beaches are extensive and beautiful as are the themed gardens if you just want to enjoy an ice-cream in the sun.
So if you want taste of a classic English seaside resort with lots to do and comfortable accommodation then Olderfleet in Clacton-0n-Sea is for you!
