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

Stunning B&B with two fabulous hosts. Peaceful location very close to city. Finished to an extremely high standard and kept in fantastic condition. Breakfast was yummy too. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Cannot recommend enough.

Following from 5 weeks of attending colchester for work purposes, I have to say that I tried 5 different hotels before coming across this gem and I am only gutted that I did not find it sooner. It is SO much more pleasant than a hotel. It is clean, cosy, cute, and the owners Alan and Angela make you feel... More

Perfect hosts, what an enjoyable place to stay. Nothing too much trouble for Alan and Angela. They booked our evening meal at The Treble Tile, super food. The accomodation will not disappoint you. The breakfast was superb. We visited Hyde Hall and Beth Chatto Gardens during our stay. Timbers was for us the perfect location

We stayed at Timbers for just one night, the hosts were very friendly and answered any questions we had on the surrounding area and gave us tips on where to go for dinner and to visit. They were very helpful and the breakfast was excellent! The rooms are spacious, clean, and homely, everything you would expect from a quality B&B.... More

My hushand and I stayed at Timbers for eight nights- and enjoyed every minute. Angela and Alan are fantastic: extremely welcoming, very friendly, very helpful and very likeable. The rooms are spacious, clean and very well equipped. And the breakfast comes close to paradise: whatever you like is on the menu!!! The view into the garden while having breakfast adds... More

Described as Luxury B & B , certainly lives up to that description. Welcoming hosts , well appointed rooms and a breakfast to die for. Located in a quiet cul - de - sac with parking , and , within easy reach of local pubs and restaurants. Would not even search for other B & B's when I return to... More

Set in a modern, large house. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Alan and Angela are excellent hosts. Friendly and helpful with plenty of suggestions of where to eat and visit. They have tried to think of everything you might need to make your stay the best they can. From good quality WiFi, to a carafe of sherry. Would stay... More
