ON OUR DOORSTEP..
Visit… ‘Burnham-on-crouch, our local town on the River Crouch, where we love to walk along the quayside, stopping for a drink at one of the lovely traditional pubs right on the water.’
Shop at… ‘The Limes Farm Shop (01621 785865) in Burnham-oncrouch. We’re lucky to have a brilliant family-run farm shop just minutes from our house that sells local as well as home-grown fruit, veg and plants.’ Go for a meal at… ‘The Bell (01621 828348, purleighbell.co.uk) in Purleigh is a really lovely, cosy country pub that serves great food. I love the dried hops that decorate the ancient wooden beams.’
