This is a truly unique property with stunning panoramic views across the estuary. At full tide, it's almost as if you are at sea - without the rocking motion. An ideal retreat after Lockdown in London. Unreservedly recommend!

A great place to chill out and take coastal walks. No seaside commercialisation but a good pub, takeaways and local shops handy.

Lovely flat, comfy beds, thick towels. And of course a great view. Perfect for a family of four, fully equipped kitchen and we loved the little beach-inspired touches throughout the property.

The flat is very well equipped and the location is good.

Crows Nest was way above our expectations. It was an luxury apartment , incredibly equipped and in a superb location. Everything you could possibly need was there in perfect condition. We appreciated the attention to detail that had gone into decorating the apartment in a nautical theme.
