I'm Annie. I have renovated this (originally) early 17C Georgian House in the historic Dutch Quarter in west Stockwell street "perhaps the most attractive street in Colchester" (Nicholas Pevsner, The Buildings of England, 1954) Originally I worked as a counsellor and since then having been lovingly running guest accommodation for several years and this is my newest venture. We have 5 beautiful, characterful rooms, with splendid guest facilities, right in the town centre and ...welcome you!
