About the property

Sleeps 6. 3 Bedrooms. 1.5 Baths.

This ground floor apartment is under a 5 minute walk from Chalkwell beach, a sandy beach located next to Chalkwell train station, from where you can take a 50 minute train ride into Central London or just one stop in either direction to Southend on Sea for the longest pleasure pier in the world, or atmospheric old Leigh on Sea fishing centre.

The apartment has a sunny south facing decked area and front garden with views over Ridgeway Green, ideal for a picnic or relaxing in the sun. On the other side of Ridgeway Green is a parade of shops, including a bistro and a Chinese restaurant, together with a beauty parlour, dry cleaners, hairdressing salon and a small convenience store where all your daily essentials can be purchased.

The apartment is less than a 10 minute walk to Chalkwell Park which has multiple children's play areas and open spaces for football and baseball games as well as a gallery, cafe and rose gardens. It is approximately 15 minute walk to Leigh Broadway, which is full of independent shops, bars and restaurants.

Southend on Sea has a busy high street with a covered shopping centre and parking at each end. A 7-screen Odeon cinema is located at the top end with Adventure Island beach front theme park at the bottom end.

The apartment is also only a 15 minute drive from Southend London Airport with extensive flights across Europe.

The apartment has three double bedrooms. It is currently set up with a double bed in the master bedroom, a double bed in the second bedroom and two single beds in the third bedroom. A travel cot can be supplied on request.

The kitchen has wooden worktops, a range style oven with five ring gas hob, built-in fridge/freezer, double Butler sink, integrated dishwasher, microwave, toaster, cafetiere and kettle. There is a small dining table in the kitchen with 6 seats.

Beautiful flat which is very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the flat and wanted for nothing. The flat is beautiful and located in a very quiet area, you are not overlooked from the street. Very comfortable and decor is fabulous. Thank you.

Spacious 3 bed flat

  • 5 of 5

This fantastic flat was ideal for me and my elderly parents to stay whilst they were having a new bathroom fitted. It definitely had a very homely atmosphere and as both my parents have mobility problems and use walking frames so apart from a few loose rugs (which I rolled up and put in a cupboard) this flat was so spacious for them to move around without having to discard their frames. The flat catered for all our needs and was well equipped for our stay and it was very thoughtful of the owners to leave us milk and some biscuits for a much needed cuppa after our journey. As we have friends and family around the area the accommodation was ideally situated for visiting, visits and outings to the local amenities. The veranda is an extra bonus and we spent a few hours basking in the much unexpected sun. Overall a very positive and welcoming experience and all three of us would highly recommend staying here.

Perfect for young family

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyable stay. The house was great for us. It's location of great. We really enjoyed a lazy stroll along the coast to Southend dropping into a lovely cafe on the seafront and when we were in a rush to get back it is only 5 minutes on the train from Southend Central to Chalkwell Station which is just a couple of mins from the house. The house was lovely for my wife and I but what but it over the top was all the lovely touches for kids which made our young daughters stay perfect. Thanks!

Just perfect for a family stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property for a family stay! Easy access to the surrounding area, being 5 minutes from the beach and local train station, 2 mins from a small local grocery store, yet set well back from the busier roads, thus avoiding traffic and people noise. The property is comfortable, in good decorative order and true to its description. The owners had added thoughtful touches to make us feel welcome and help us settle in (e.g. a small supply of tea, coffee, milk, biscuits, detergents etc.). Highly recommended - we are booking again for next summer!
