Alan and Angela have been in the hospitality business for many years, and it shows in the slick presentation of their rooms and breakfast, all positively first class. We found Timbers b&b to be well located and easy to find. We would not hesitate to recommend this b&b.

The owners are very welcoming. The breakfasts were the best we have had for years. Our room was comfortable and in value for money terms this place would be in the top 5% of the places we have ever stayed.

Although off the "beaten path", the Timbers was well worth it. Alan and Angela are the perfect hosts, a beautiful and inviting home and amazing breakfast. Alan is a wonderful chef, and Angela's homemade shortbread is yummy! Rooms are comfortable and have most anything you might need for a restful night. Bathroom (not shared) was beyond clean, well provided and... More

This place deserves 20 stars. Wonderful hosts, incredible breakfast, outstanding & beautiful accommodations and great location. Allen and Angela are lovely people and provided us with a top-quality English breakfast and wonderful conversation. The outdoor garden was phenomenal. I would plan a trip to come back just to stay here again.

Stayed here for 3 nights while visiting friends and relatives in the Colchester area. Extremely comfortable room, delicious breakfasts with wide variety of choice. Angela and Alan made us very welcome and we would certainly stay there again next time we are in the area. Bob and Coral C

We stayed here last year, and the proof of the pudding is going back again to this excellent B&B. So very clean, warm and comfortable. The hosts Angela and Alan make you feel welcomed and relaxed. Colchester town centre is only a few minutes away but the B&B is in a quiet and peaceful cul de sac.
