Nestled in the Essex countryside on the banks of the River Stour Estuary, Mistley encapsulates the best of tranquil yet modern countryside living.
The jewel in the village’s culinary crown is Mistley Thorn, a fine-dining restaurant serving locally produced seasonal food. The Tea House, a family-run café, provides lighter bites, coffee and cake, and hosts special evening events.
A local cricket team, bowls club and a Sports and Social Club keeps competitive types busy, while the Stour Sailing Club in nearby Manningtree is perfect for those who know their bows from their prows.
Just a couple of miles away lies the border to the breathtaking Dedham Vale, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and where John Constable’s famous work ‘The Hay Wain’ was painted in 1821. The view has barely changed since. There are plenty of walks and cycle routes to enjoy along the glittering Stour Estuary or in the Stour Estuary Nature Reserve, with its miles of ancient woodland trails.
Mistley is only a short walk from the beautiful coastal path The Walls, which leads to the town of Manningtree. Here, the high street offers an array of shops, including boutiques, eateries, a florist, a pharmacy and a Tesco Express.
With its many impressive schools – including the Ofsted ‘outstanding’-rated Manningtree High School – this is the ideal place to bring up a family. Fantastic road links mean Colchester is just a 30-minute drive away, and the nearby Mistley train station put Harwich Town, Ipswich and London Liverpool Street within easy reach.
This is River Reach, an exemplary collection of new two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes nestled in the historic village of Mistley. With 20 different home designs, there’s an eclectic mix of styles and sizes to suit all kinds of people.
River Reach is a place where our excellent design and attention to detail has resulted in exceptional new homes which sit perfectly in their surroundings.
Like all Hopkins homes, the properties at River Reach have been lovingly crafted using traditional build methods to create homes that are timeless on the outside and that move with the times on the inside.

If you’re seeking to move away from London or another other busy commuter area, with Hopkins you can buy a brand new home in a beautiful location, enjoy more space inside and out, at a price you might just be surprised by.
