Stayed here again recently and it was just as good as remembered. Pleasant spacious rooms, very clean and rustically furnished, our with an excellent view over the Stour Estuary. Friendly welcome and excellent service. Very good (and very large) freshly cooked traditional English breakfast, locally sourced where possible I think. Very good value.

The Anchor is a wonderful b&b, the rooms are large, very clean and bathroom is modern and also spotlessly clean. Tea tray with coffee, tea and shortbread cookies are a nice touch. Lush views from the windows are a preview of the beautiful surroundings. The promenade is adorable with ducks and swans a plenty make for a nice walk into... More

We had dinner at the Thorn with friends who had lived in the area for 30 years but never been inside The Anchor, their loss in our view. As a B&B you couldn't really ask for more. Excellent large well furnished room with fantastic modern shower and a view of The Estuary. Great breakfast, helpful and friendly team. Only sorry... More

Happened upon the Anchor Inn whilst looking for a B&B - what a great find. Hosts could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Rooms were lovely, super view, simple clean decor, comfy bed, tea & coffee making facilities, TV and a fab shower! The only very small negative was that there was no hair dryer but hey, if that's...

A lovely pub with superb accommodation. The rooms are large and bright, with a comfy bed, loads of hanging space, modern bathroom, tea & coffee, TV, table & chairs etc. Absolutely everything you could want really. There are only 3 rooms, which means you do get the personal touches. What is very noticeable is the genuine friendliness and desire to... More

I cannot recommend this place more highly for a quick escape. It’s not as easy as you would think to get away from it all within an hour of Central London without a car. Manningtree is at the mouth of the Stour river, where lush green countryside is slowly introduced to the sea via a long estuary. Tranquility and indolence... More
