More about Manningtree
Located at the head of the Stour Estuary which divides Suffolk and Essex, ‘Beaches’ self catering holiday accommodation has much to offer as a ‘cottage base’ for exploring the area, or simply as a place to enjoy in its own right.
The waterfront and beach is the perfect place for the kids to use up some their excess energy, or you might prefer the tranquility of a quiet walk along the banks of the river Stour.
Just a 5 minute walk will ‘take in’ the High Street and its shops, including several great breakfast spots, as well as ‘takeaways’, four pubs, and a choice of good restaurants – from Lucca 2 mins away, to 15 mins walk to Mistley and the award winning Thorn Hotel.
Whilst there are no Hotels in the area, if bed and breakfast really is your preference, a hearty full English breakfast can be had just a few doors away in the Manningtree ‘Crown’, or Cafe Rio for just a few pounds!
Slightly further afield just 5 miles away in the Stour Valley and Dedham Vale, are the picturesque Constable country villages of Dedham, Flatford and East Bergholt, all of which merit a visit should time allow.
