The Hexagon is an impressive, open-plan accommodation next to a Radar Tower. The location is simply stunning as you are fields away from any neighbours down a farm track leading to the wonderful Essex Marshes and bird sanctuaries. The Hexagon stands in a large hedged and fenced meadow surrounded by the owners’ fields. The bird life around you is amazing; with Marsh Harriers, hawks, migrating geese, herons, kites, ducks, waders, plovers, larks, owls, egrets and many, many more, all around you. At the end of the field, you are in the Wildlife Nature Reserve with endless walks along the sea wall where you can take in the beautiful changes in landscape from marshy wilderness to hidden creeks and farmland. Looking out to sea or along the Blackwater Estuary you will often see the impressive sight of an historic Thames barge under full sail or a fleet of competing yachts.

The Hexagon is a completely self-contained living area all on the ground floor with one en-suite king sized bedroom and a well-equipped kitchen. It is accessed from the entrance to The Radar Tower and guests may use the Tower to take in the magnificent views from a high vantage point over the marshes to the sea. The owners have put in a wood burner and sofas in the top viewing floor for guests to enjoy bird watching and the magnificent sunsets. There’s also a second toilet off the hallway and stairs to the viewing floor. The floor of the Hexagon is marble tiled throughout with no steps. At the end of the hall is the main open-plan living/dining room, the whole front of which is glazed with eight glass folding doors with views out into your meadow and beyond. There is an efficient glass-fronted wood burner in this room and a lovely, large glass hexagon pyramid roof light adding to the elegant spacious feel.
Tollesbury is hemmed in by the mysterious and graphically stunning lunar landscape of the Essex marshes. Indeed, the buildings closest to the harbour are built on stilts to accommodate the high tides which swamp the marshes and when the sea simply comes up the road. There is a nice tidal pool that has been created for people to enjoy a swim, canoe or picnic on the created beach just beside the marina. There are some lovely cafés or restaurants in the Marina and all the shops you need in Tollesbury.
