Situated in the idyllic village of Mistley, River Reach is within close proximity of day to day amenities and in the perfect location for tranquil countryside living.
Mistley is located in picturesque Essex countryside, on the banks of the Stour Estuary and bordering the pretty town of Manningtree. The village itself has an interesting and varied history, with Mistley Quay becoming increasingly important as a trade port throughout the 18th Century. The Mistley Towers are a beautiful example of neoclassical architecture and were built on the site of the former Church of St Mary the Virgin. In the direction of Colchester lies the stunning Dedham Vale, an area of outstanding natural beauty and where one of John Constable’s most famous works, “The Hay Wain” was painted in 1821. The view essentially remains the same to this day and is an area worthy of a visit.
The village offers award winning dining and accommodation at The Mistley Thorn, a fine dining restaurant serving locally produced seasonal food. The T House, a family run café, provides a lighter alternative of snacks, coffee and cake with special events in the evening. There are a variety of local sporting activities including a cricket team, bowls and a Sports and Social Club. The Stour Estuary also attracts sailing enthusiasts with the Stour Sailing Club located nearby in Manningtree.
For stunning views of the Estuary there are many walks and cycle routes including one of Britain’s best coastal walks from Mistley to Harwich. The Stour Estuary Nature Reserve is a haven for nature lovers, with miles of trails in the ancient woodland waiting to be explored. River Reach is only a short walk away from the beautiful coastal path, The Walls, which leads to the town of Manningtree, where the high street offers an array of shopping opportunities, including independent boutiques, eateries, a florist, a pharmacy and a Tesco Express.
For families, there are a choice of schools in Mistley at Primary level and for the older children Manningtree High School, considered Outstanding by Ofsted, is approximately a 10 minute drive. Other secondary schools include the independent Ipswich School and Colchester County High School, both of which have been named as two of the best schools in the country for A-level results. For further education Colchester and Ipswich have excellent facilities with Institutes, Colleges and Universities all within 13 miles from River Reach. Only 8 miles away in Holbrook, the well regarded independent Royal Hospital School, with naval connections, consistently achieves outstanding results.
