St Lawrence Bay,


Timbers is tucked away down a private lane surrounded by peace and tranquillity.

This attractive house was built in 1907, and still retains a colonial feel. Builders from Mayfair sailed down the Thames, around the coast, and up the river Blackwater to discover this far-away spot. Still with its 'far-away' feel, but less than an hr from the M25, visitors no longer need to get a pony and trap from Southminster train station or sail around the coast to reach 'Scarletts' estate, although this would still be possible for the intrepid traveller! For the keen sailors and water sports enthusiasts Timbers is located within walking distance of Stone and Maroni sailing clubs and has access to a privet slipway onto the foreshore with full tide visitors mooring available.

Timbers is a specious house, with plenty of living space - including sunroom, dining room and large living room. Upstairs there are 3 double sized rooms, two set out as twins and one as a double which opens up onto a balcony with views over the trees to the Blackwater estuary. For your convenience there is a separate Bathroom and Shower room, along with an outhouse which you are welcome to use as a drying room for wet gear or a play den for the youngsters.

A large secluded garden surrounds the house, which as guests you have the sole use of. The kitchen is well appointed with large fridge and separate standing freezer, along with a dish washer and washing machine.

Extract from our visitors book 'Thank you for a lovely stay in your very pleasant house. The shed with the tumble dryer and lots of hanging space is a perfect drying room for sailors! We have had a glorious few days sailing.'

Once in Latchingdon, follow signs to Mayland and Bradwell(-on-Sea). Once out of Latchingdon, keep on this 'main road', passing village signs of Mayland, Steeple, and Saint Lawrence.

The St Lawrence village sign appears in the middle of nowhere - 1.2 miles and the first left turn after this, leave the main road, turning left at signpost to 'The Stone', 'St Lawrence Bay', and 'Stone Sailing Club'.

Just before you drive into the river (!), turn left by the 'Stone Inn' into St Lawrence Drive. Straight on through farm gates, past notice warning 'Private Road'. Follow the tarmac road with speed to first right hand bend, and carry straight on, onto unmade gravel road. Follow road to the end of the houses and keep going, past open gate and sign on left saying Scarletts Estate. Take next left - few yards further on - and Timbers is the 3rd house on the left.
