About Sue Nelson
I first fell in love with Croatia on a sailing holiday in 2004. The crystal clear waters of the Adriatic are undeniably welcoming as are the people. I returned the following year with the idea of finding a retreat to which I could escape when UK weather or general stress became too much to handle. I now like to share the experience with others and find that they too inevitably have a memorable and enjoyable stay. We also share the wonderful location of our house in the UK which we have had the good fortune to occupy for over 25 years and which lies beside the River Blackwater. A self contained annexe with it's own garden onto the river provides a perfect hideaway for two for either short stays or temporary accommodation for visiting relatives or between house sale and purchase.
Why Sue Nelson chose Maldon
This property is part of our own house in which we have lived for over 30 years. It is in a spectacular position by the river and yet only a mile from the market town of Maldon with its historic connections to the Vikings and with the beautiful sailing barges which navigated the Thames and Blackwater in the past. There is lots to see in the local surrounding area and if you wish to visit the capital Central London is 50 miles by road or easily reached by train from either Witham, Hatfield Peveral or Chelmsford stations. The Roman city of Colchester lies about 20 miles to the North. However, the Annexe itself is in a haven of tranquillity together with our house.
What makes this Apartment unique
The true beauty of this property is that you can just relax in almost total tranquility beside the river watching the swans and the tide swelling and ebbing whilst the pheasants strut their stuff on your lawn.

A beautiful and relaxing location and property. We were made very welcome by Sue and Ron. Although we did not eat in much, everything necessary for meals was there plus a dishwasher. The dog loved the garden and there are great walks nearby. For golfers, Maldon Golf Club is next door although it does not overlook the property. I would recommend and would love to go back
Lovely quiet riverside location
Stayed for a week in July with my mother and my dog. The room is beautiful, very well finished and a decent size for 2, though perhaps better for a couple, I would stay there again. Sue and Ron were very welcoming, friendly and helpful.
Location is really lovely: so many footpaths to explore and great views all around. A very short trip into Maldon, but it feels like another world since Beeleigh is so quiet. Lovely to have the garden to sit outside. We also enjoyed borrowing the canoe for a paddle on the river.
Megan, Sue's dog is very sweet, though a bit alarmed by size of my dog at first. Visitors with dogs will probably want to know there are cats about. This wasn't a problem for us, but might have been with a different dog.
From the very first contact, Sue was very friendly and helped to make the booking process and arriving easy. The property is amazingly comfortable and in an perfect location for a peaceful, restful stay. There is everything you need to cook, wash and view!
My husband and I would wholeheartedly recommend a stay here. We hope to return again soon.
Thank you so much and we loved having you there. Always so cheerful and happy. Do come again one day.
A five star property,in every way.
Thank you Julie and so sorry I was unable to meet you myself.
Lovely characterful apartment in a great location.
We stayed here for a weekend while we attended a family event. The apartment was well appointed (all bathroom essentials provided for example) and lovely and clean. We made use of the open fire place and it made it really cosy. The garden is ideal if you are travelling with a dog. It is ideally situated for Maldon where Promenade Park is well worth a visit. The owners Sue and Ron were lovely, even offering to look after our puppy while we attended the function. We would love to come back in the better weather to appreciate the local area better. Superb.
Thank you for leaving the apartment so beautifully clean and tidy. It is much appreciated and we look forward to seeing you both and of course Arthur, who is the star of the show, again.
Sue and Ron
