About Margaret Binns

I have lived in Essex all my life and in Colchester with my family for just over 2 years.

We have recently refurbished The Nook and are very proud of the results and our first guests said "We would like to live here!"

Margaret Binns purchased this house in 2010

Why Margaret Binns chose Essex

We love living in Colchester, having a vibrant, bustling town on our doorstep, yet our neighbourhood is peaceful and quiet.

We have good access to local countryside such as Mersea Island and Dedham. Good road links to go further field and London is 45 minutes away.

An absolute gem. Beautiful well equipped comfortable little cottage. Loved everything about it, french doors to private patio, own parking spot. Close to town. And host's Margaret and Nick, two lovely kind people. Thankyou, we had the best there weeks.

A Perfect Holiday Base!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect holiday home whether exploring the area, or like us in town to visit family and friends. The owner Margaret made us very welcome and it was reassuring to have her living close by. The Nook has a great location in a quiet and safe residential street. Located not far from the town centre and near the local bus route. The Nook is beautifully presented, warm, clean and comfortable with the benefit of Wi-fi and TV. We visited during a particularly cold spell in April but the house was warm. The patio garden would be lovely if visiting in the summer months. We would not hesitate to recommend the Nook and hope to visit again in the future.
