Warm welcome, tasteful, clean and comfortable accommodation and a delicious breakfast with lots of choice. Alan and Angela are good hosts and our one night stay was most enjoyable.The homemade cake and shortbread, sherry and fruit in our room was very much appreciated. Thank you to you both.

We stayed at the Timbers for 2 nights. The B&B owners Alan and Angela gave us a warm welcome and it felt like a second home! The breakfast is just marvellous! We would surely recommend this bed&breakfast to anyone who wants to visit London, while this is just an hour travelling by good public transport. Take a 37 pound travelcard,... More

The hosts Alan and Angela are a lovely couple, very friendly and helpful and extended a very warm welcome. Breakfasts were very good quality, an excellent choice and very well prepared. Would we stay again? A... More

From the welcome by Alan and Angrla to the drive away, we had a great experience. Very comfortable room, with shortbread and refreshments, although we would have preferred a room with a bath, rather than just a shower. The breakfast was excellent too, with good fresh fruit and a very good cooked breakfast.

Located in a quiet Close on the outskirts of Colchester this is everything you could want from a B&B. Very friendly welcome and comfortable spacious room. Alan & Angela are great hosts and the breakfasts are the perfect start to your day.

We stayed here this weekend with friends as we were attending the Essex Food Show. Alan & Angela are delightful hosts, their home is lovely, we sat in the garden and had a glass of wine before going out for dinner, our hosts joined us and had a chat, they organised a taxi for us. The bedrooms were lovely, toiletries... More

My husband and I stayed here with two friends. The hosts, Angela and Alan, were so welcoming. The house is lovely and both our rooms were beautiful. The beds are comfy and there are lots of little extras in the rooms, such as sherry, fruit and tea making facilities. As for breakfast, we wanted for nothing! All the food is... More
