The Tower

Self Catering

Consider a stay in an award-winning landmark for a unique experience. The Tower is a converted water tower that has been tastefully decorated in the classic, utilitarian style of the 1930s, but with a touch of modern elegance. A beautiful glass wall on the top floor opens onto a huge patio with breathtaking views across the River Crouch to Southend and the North Downs beyond. The undulating landscapes of the South Downs and the old towns of Maldon make this a beautiful part of the country to experience and explore. What better way to soak it all in than from the comfort of your own historic home?

What is the capacity for The Tower?

The Tower sleeps up to 6 guests over 3 beautiful bedrooms and three stunning bath/shower rooms. Children of all ages are welcome. 

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Chelmsford area?

Burnham-on- Crouch was previously an oyster port, and the charming town still has a nautical aspect about it. The quay is renowned as the 'Cowes of the East Coast,' and you can take a ferry ride over the River Crouch from here. There are also boat rentals available, as well as a variety of shops, cafes, and restaurants to visit. If you take that ferry from Burnham-on-Crouch, you’ll arrive at the Essex Marina, from where you can walk to RSPB’s Wallasea Island. Green-fingered visitors will love a trip to the RHS Garden Hyde Hall, a 360-acre estate with fascinating and ever-changing garden areas. If you’re hoping for a historic holiday, make sure to visit The Chapel of St Peter-on-the-Wall. This is the oldest church in England, dating back to 654AD.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

North Fambridge's Ferryboat Inn is a lovely 500-year-old weatherboarded bar set away from the River Crouch waterfront in a peaceful position. T raditional pub food is served, as well as a specials board. At  The Bellin Purleigh, you will find an open fire, hops hung from the beams, and lanterns on the benches outside. Good ale and hearty food are served!
