Access Statement

Zig Zag Cottage still retains all of its 18th Century character with exposed beams and slight floor level differences.

Our guest accommodation is unique and situated mainly on the upper floor, accessible via an original cast iron spiral staircase.

Regretfully Zig Zag Cottage is therefore not suitable for people with mobility difficulties or small children

Zig Zag Cottage is situated in a small road just off the War Memorial square near the May Bush Inn in Great Oakley, Harwich. As there is limited public transport in the village the accommodation is only really suitable for guests with their own transport or use of a hire car.

Bedrooms, sitting room and private facilities on upper floor. Spacious dining area with separate WC on ground floor. Help is available with carrying luggage.
