The Essex region
East Anglia is known as the area of 'big skies', partly due to it's reputation for being very flat, but anyone who has visited this corner of the region will know that the undulating fields which lead down to the river valleys have a real charm. The beaches of Essex and the Suffolk heritage coast are exceptional is their beauty and diversity. The charming Essex and Suffolk villages are steeped in history and old world charm, with somewhere different to explore every day.
The area around the River Colne estuary is known for it's exceptional beauty and wildlife. Waters Reach looks over the river and has a private access directly to the sea wall, where the estuary birds and sunsets can be seen at first hand. Fingrinhoe wildlife reserve is located on the other side of the river and the nearby town of Wivenhoe, boasts friendly pubs and numerous restaurants. The National cycle trail is minutes from the property and numerous beaches are a short drive away. The well-known Constable country of Suffolk, made famous by the painter John Constable is within a 15minute drive. London is just 1hour by train from Wivenhoe station where all the famous sights can be found.

"Beautiful rural/coastal stay"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is very spacious in the living areas and we easily hosted Christmas lunch for 10. The views are stunning and we took a frosty walk into Wivenhoe for a great pub dinner. Sian was very welcoming and a delight to deal with. It was lovely and warm all the time and we lit the fire each evening for a toasty atmosphere.

"Wonderful place to stay"
Waters Reach was a wonderful place for us to stay, with lovely views. It very peaceful and relaxed, but just a short stroll from Wivenhoe. The house is really cosy and warm, and really well furnished. The owners were also extremely kind and helpful throughout our stay.

"Beautiful accommodation in a stunning location."
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Waters Reach. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and the views are truly stunning. Sian and her husband were very welcoming and helpful.
The house has been very well thought out and has everything that you would need for a great stay. It is ideal for a family get together and also not very far away from the station at Wivenhoe should you need to travel to London or elsewhere.
