Just one of the lovely views from the low cliff tops on our morning walk. This lovely modern development has uninterrupted views on all levels. Hi everyone we are Jennie & Peter. We are early retired and really looking forward to our travels. We hope you like our home and we promise, hand on heart  to care for your home as we do our own... Dinner on the balcony anyone ! This is the Coralia cruse ship just passing our door Our sunny balcony is great for entertaining yourselves  and friends with a nice Barbie. We also have the Air Show right outside our door in May and the carnival in September. One view of our Lounge which directly overlooks the River Thames without even a need to stand up The dinning area is bright happy and cheerful and also overlooks the Thames The Kitchen is much larger than it looks in photos. A view of one half of my kitchen - it has all the mod cons you could want and expect. The Master bedroom has a Kingsize bed with its own un-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe The kingsize double guest bedroom has the use of the large family bathroom off from the Hall This is the front family bathroom which doubles up for the guest room use. The master bedroom has its own full bathroom and shower. Sea bird life is very prolific particularly in the winter, and you can go on guided walks and talks. We also have a large family of seals that on a low tide you can see basking in the sun His fishing skills might be better than yours ? Fishing trips are available in the old town of Leigh just a short walk away. Old Leigh has a small but active fishing fleet this is it on empty tide and early morning This is OLD Leigh fishing town. If you look into the background of the photo you will see a church on the hill which in NEW Leigh town with some very nice restaurants and shops and its a short walk I do every day. At certain times of the year you have a choice of taking either the train or the boat up to London. Here on the boat the famous Tower bridge opens to allow your passage, its a fantastic site. A days drive out and a trip up the river is a real must, this is a very pretty part of England Arrrrr, isn¤t that lovely and this is just the tip of the iceberg. England is a small and diverse country. beautiful villages and country life, history and architecture that blows you away and all of it just a drive out.

There are two theatres, two casinos, village shopping and a modern shopping complex, again all a short walk away. Plus a huge selection of Restaurants and good night life right on your door step. All of which are near enough to be a plus, but distant enough to not be in your face. We live on the domestic side, not the commercial end of the sea-front.

Sailing, fishing, horse riding and golf are all close by and London is just a 45 minute train journey. To add to all of this we have easily accessible country life along with historic towns and Counties just a pleasant and nice drive out. It is also a great location if you want to pop over to Europe during your stay as the Dover crossing is just two hours by car.
