Discovering St Osyth

6th July 2021

St Osyth is a quaint village situated in north-east Essex, and last month the Beresfords team visited the charming St Osyth Priory Estate which offers various private and exclusive new homes including pretty cottages, elegant, detached family homes and stylish apartments. The estate itself is a great place to live for many reasons, properties are traditionally designed with a premium specification, and surrounded by beautiful parkland setting whilst also offering an 82-minute commute into Central London.

However, here at Beresfords we understand that deciding to move is a big decision and many things have to be considered including the local area. So, our Beresfords team have found all you need to know about St O!

If you want the best of both worlds, village and coastal living, St Osyth would be an ideal location as it is an idyllic setting, the high street offers various great independent businesses and the coastline surrounds you!

Here are some of our favourite amenities in and around St Osyth:

Independent Local Businesses'

There are various great local businesses throughout St Osyth. Some of our favourites that the team found during a stroll through the high street were St Osyth Butchers, Dukes Tearoom and BistroCrossroads Sandwich BarMollies Gifts, Toosey Tackle and a newly renovated pub - The Kings Arms - where the Beresfords team stopped for lunch, for market research purposes, and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all!
