If you are looking to get away from it all, this might be just what you are looking for!
A self-catering holiday at The Safe House offers you clean, comfortable and suitably appointed accommodation at a remote and private beach front location * with uninterrupted sea views, complete peace and tranquility, stunning skyscapes and nature all around you.
It offers guests a solitude that is becoming increasingly harder to find without significant travel cost and effort, only 2 hours from Central London on the Essex sunshine coast.
A stroll along the deserted beach, watching a stunning sunset, listening to the birds settling in for the night can give you the feeling that you are the only people on the planet and it will leave you with unforgetable memories.
After dark on clear nights, the milky way is clearly visible to the naked eye given the low level of light pollution in the area. If you are lucky to be there during an astral event such as a meteor shower, it can be spectacular.
It is quite simply wonderful, if you appreciate the finer things in life.
A real tonic for the mind, body and soul!
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. It 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.
Rush hour here occurs twice a day when the tide ebbs and flows!
Come and imbibe ...
* Access to the property can be temporarily restricted for a couple of hours either side of the very highest tides, during the new & full moon lunar cycles.
