The Safe House

Chalet -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
St Osyth, Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, England
If you are looking to get away from it all for your next holiday or short break we would strongly advise you to read on ...

A self-catering holiday at The Safe House offers you clean, comfortable and suitably appointed accommodation at a 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. 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. It is quite simply wonderful, if you appreciate the finer things in life.

A real tonic for the mind, body and soul!

We are delighted you had such wonderful weather during your stay and enjoyed the glorious location and natural environment. When it sparkles out there it is second to very few locations, maybe a private Caribbean Island or The Maldives ... Thanks for leaving your feedback...More

Fantastic to be at one with nature and the rugged coastline. This is like home from home, it welcomes you and gives you a big 'CWTCH'. The people who own it, are so helpful and patient, especially with a dingbat like me who had problems...More

About the neighbourhood
Lee Over Sands is a remote small hamlet comprising two private roads, Wall Street & Beach Road. The houses in Wall Street are protected by a sea wall and surrounded to the North & East by arable farmland for a mile or so in each direction.
The majority of the properties on Beach Road are built outside the defenses that the sea wall offers, on a gravel beach facing Ray Creek and mouth of the Thames Estuary. Ray Creek is a tidal creek that separates Beach Road from the beach at Colne Point.
To the East of Beach Road is the Colne Point Nature reserve operated by the Essex Wildlife Trust that is a 600 + acre reserve. It is largely salt-marsh and shingle beach and home to many estuarine birds including Egrets, Greenshank, Oystercatchers, Plover & Terns. It is also host to many mig...
