The large 1 acre beautiful garden has a croquet lawn, 200yds river frontage, outside dining area & parking at front door. The garden gate opens onto a riverside path to Flatford Mill (3 miles) & Dedham (4 miles) in one direction and in the other to the little town of Manningtree (10 minutes), with its beach, sailing club & several excellent restaurants.

This is a bird watchers paradise with an RSPB reserve across the river. Visiting species have included spoonbill, pelican, osprey & American dowitcher. There are resident egrets.
