A spacious, relaxed level access home with exceptional views. This light, spacious stable conversion offers the perfect place for a family holiday, rural retreat and outdoor activities. Converted to a high standard, it retains original features such as beams, vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows which allow light to flood the interior. The comfortable interior is tastefully furnished in a relaxed, coastal style and every room has a superb view.

French doors give access to the outdoor decking, where alfresco meals can be enjoyed whilst watching the boats sail by, or a chance for bird spotting. At the end of the day, a relaxing drink on the terrace as you admire the sensational sunset is a must. The semi-open plan living space flows from the spacious dining area/games room into a well-equipped kitchen leading to a warm and welcoming living room.

Comfortable bedrooms, sociable living space, luxury bathroom and exclusive outdoor space lend themselves to a truly memorable holiday.

The South East England 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.

"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.

"Excellent accommodation"

Delighted to have found Waters Reach was even better than the photographs and descriptions suggested. We spent a wonderful week end. Excellent accommodation, friendly and helpful hosts and amazing views from every window. A truly lovely peaceful place to stay.
The cottage is comfortable, spotless, very well planned and equipped - wish we could have stayed for longer.

"Dream Cottage"

Waters Reach is more beautiful than the photo's show. It is very comfortable and well fitted out with lovely comfortable beds and luxurious linen. We needed somewhere to stay to visit family and in fact the family visited us as it was so comfortable. Ideal for older and younger members of our group with a lovely meadow for the children to play in, wonderful views and really interesting walks along the sea wall. We cannot say anything bad about this property and would go back there tomorrow if we had the chance. The bathroom is large and ideal for anyone with any disability as there is not only a bath, but also a wet room. There is also a lovely en-suite with the main bedroom.
