This charming two-bedroom cottage has been recently converted by Roz Barr Architects to exceptional standards and boasts modernist sensibilities. Situated in Burnham on Crouch in Essex it is easily accessible from London (1 hour by train from Liverpool Street or 1.5 hours by car). The two-storey cottage comprises two double bedrooms which offer a cosy retreat, while the lounge and kitchenette dining area feature log burners with wood provided. The property has private access to a 120-foot garden equipped with a BBQ and an outdoor shower. Parking can be arranged outside the cottage upon booking, or free parking is available within a one-minute walk.
The area offers picturesque estuarine walks, whether along the Crouch toward the North Sea or west to neighbouring villages like Althorne and Fambridge. A short 30-minute drive opens up opportunities for beautiful walks in places like Bradwell on the Blackwater. Nestled in a gravelled terrace off the main street, the cottage is conveniently located just a minute's walk from the River Crouch, pubs, chippies, and cafes. Peaberries, the local café, can deliver freshly homemade meals upon pre-order (menus provided with booking form).
Surrounded by stunning flat marshland, Burnham sits opposite Wallasea Island, a bird sanctuary accessible via a regular ferry. Trips to see seals are also available. Within a 15-minute drive or an hour-plus walk, two vineyards with excellent restaurants and scenic views across the Crouch await exploration. Sailing enthusiasts will appreciate Burnham's year-round sailing scene, especially during Burnham Week, an annual regatta that brings the town to life during the last week of August.
‘This undiscovered Essex enclave could be the most peaceful town in England. It’s hard to imagine a more tranquil weekend escape than Burnham on Crouch, surrounded by water and vineyards’
