“A little piece of heaven only one hour from Central London"”
Reviewed June 7, 2011

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 saturates the air here. You can hear the creak of yourself unwinding. Turn one way out of the station (which is what we were intending to do) and you are in so-called Constable country. But I’m glad we turned the other way. It’s a short walk into the quaint little market town and down to the peaceful harbour. We were planning to head back to the marshes, when something caught our eye. Every corner we turned yielded new surprises. The Anchor in Mistley is a fitting grand finale to this trail of pleasant surprises and is one itself. That corner room overlooking the estuary is a little piece of heaven. The place is still spotless and the welcome unusually warm. These people really know how to look after you. It’s a one-in-a-million kind of place. We still can’t believe our luck. You can get a train straight to Mistley, station, but I wouldn’t skip Manningtree. After all, what’s the rush?

Room Tip: Go for the corner room overlooking the estuary.

We stayed at The Anchor overnight a couple of years ago and were so impressed with the accommodation and value for money that we didn't hesitate to rebook when we wanted somewhere to stay after dinner at the Mistley Thorn. Our room was huge with a great view over the estuary. The en-suite shower room was spotless and the power shower excellent. The owners were friendly and welcoming and were happy for us to bring our small dog too. Breakfast was very good and portions were generous. My husband was also impressed with the quality of the Spitfire bitter served in the bar! We will definitely be back.
