The bedroom and ensuite are very comfortable and have all the extras such as kettle, hair-dryer etc to make your stay a 'home from home' experience. The location of Ruth's flat is perfect with stunning views over the river and very close to the town centre. We will be back soon!

Ruth User ProfileRuth is a superhost.

Enthusiastic and energetic, after a career in education and the arts, which involved living in Hong Kong and India. Now mainly enjoying the cultural delights of London and walking around Manningtree and Suffolk. Can't live without regular visits to places like the Tate, Sadlers Wells, Barbican and Royal Academy in London, one hour away by train. Believe in relishing every chapter before moving on to the next.
