For us, the time was right to provide a new hub for the village of East Mersea, with a space that can be used and treasured by everyone.

Our custom-built barn is set within the idyllic farmland on the East of Mersea Island, on a site that once housed the much-loved Jarman’s Nursery and Pick-Your-Own. With planning permission under our belt in November 2016, we turned to familiar faces and familiar places for inspiration; and took the plunge into making Mersea Barns Shop & Café a reality.

We're Here For You

Be part of something familiar

At Mersea Barns, we are on a mission to celebrate all things Island-life, and we need you to get involved. We’re looking for photography of Mersea Island (past and present) that we can display within Mersea Barns and use in our marketing material.

If you would like to help, please share your favourite photos of the Island (or of you on it!) with us. Whatever the weather, no matter the mud!
