River Reach, Mistley
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.
