Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday chalet in Lee over Sands - The Safe House
Two Bedroom Chalet On Colne Point Just 2 Hours From Central London.
The property was built on the highest point on Beach Road, Lee-Over-Sands, level with the top of the sea wall, by a past honorary coast guard. It was built as a shelter for sailors cast ashore on local beaches by shallows, difficult tides and weather conditions, who had no idea where they had come ashore due to its remoteness. It became known locally as The Safe House.
The Safe House is situated in a unique location which will appeal to people who love nature or are simply seeking solitude and tranquillity, away from the madding crowd.
The property is next to the Essex Wildlife Trust nature reserve on Colne Point which has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
Access to the beaches and the wildlife reserve is restricted to residents both permanent and temporary (so our guests are welcome) and members of the EWT, so could be described as an exclusive experience. The beaches are a mix of sand banks and shingle. Beachcombers find plenty to interest them, fisherman occasionally cast from the shore and bird watchers marvel at the rich diversity of bird life.
Late evening walks along a deserted beach, watching the often spectacular sunsets, can leave you with the feeling of being the only people on the planet and leave unforgettable memories.
Rush hour here occurs twice a day when the tide ebbs and flows!
