About Essex

What our customers are saying about our holiday cottages in essex to rent.

    "There were a few issues with the cottage for example the first time I put the oven on to warm up the cottage filled with smoke as someone had left fat/oil in the tray and it had not been removed in the cleaning process. I felt obliged to scrub the rings on the cooker as they were rusty. The downstairs section of the cottage was like stepping in to a fridge but, to be fair, we did get two inches of snow outside .All of that said, we were toasty warm upstairs and feel the cottage would be ideal in warmer weather and we hope to return.Just a small point- on your directions you mention a Harvester but this establishment is now called something else and is a Steak-bar. We were ok because we know the area and we knew where the Harvester was. I am sorry I cannot remember the name of the new restaurant but the cottage owners will know.Overall we liked the little cottage very much."

    "Overall we rate S18133 as very good bordering excellent. It is a cosy nest well looked after by its owner who along with all the people we met around the 'farm' were very friendly. It fails to get 10 only because of small issues; internet a strong signal but intermittent connection, a couple of defective light bulbs, stiff lose shower control. All these things the owner has asked us to report and has promised to put right - so don't be put off.Outside seating facilities are limited, but that did not bother us in November.The location is great for a range of activities and details of a number of walks are included in the cottage. We particular enjoyed visiting Hadleigh Castle, the museums of Southend-on-Sea and Purfleet Heritage Magazine.If we can think of a reason to visit this area again S18133 will be our choice as a place to stay."

    "It is not definitely suitable for disabled people who have to use sticks. There are 6 steps to the toilet/kitchen level the step from the kitchen to the toilet is not marked and as the flooring is the same in both, is very hard to see. The same where the kitchen floor has been cut away for the back door. A simple caution of "beware step" would be an improvement. I had two falls with slight injuries inside the cottage, and I feel inclined to write to the health and safety executive who deals with the area.The tv was hard to use without instructions and the tv controller was hard to use. I phoned the owner 6 times over the 16/17 Sept but neither received an answer or a call-back to any of them.Apart from the above, a nice quiet week, but would not use this cottage again."

    "I cannot believe the amount of items that can be put into such a small space, we had great fun locating everything, we even found a medical kit (never known that before). A very peaceful & tranquil place to stay, we enjoyed walking through the village, also popping to the local for a spot of refreshment. Sudbury meadows are beautiful and watching the antics of the young cattle was wonderful....Long Melford is another special place to visit, the antique shops,specialised shops and cafes were a delight. Overall a very relaxing and special week. John was great and nothing was too much trouble, we shall definately be booking again...the only negative is that there is nothing to complain about.. May 2011."

    "We had a very peaceful week which is what we wanted. Saw various wildlife including a small Fox, 4 Badgers(Take your own peanuts for them) and even had a baby Wren sat in the doorway.The wagon itself is a lovely place to stay and sleep came so easily with the country air.Cannot praise John enough for the work he has done in restoring the wagon...must have been a labour of love !We will definitely hoping to stay again in this wagon or one of the others he has restored.I only put 5 for amenities as there only seems to be a small cart in the village, one of the residents was selling eggs there. The pub in the next village has closed and its a few miles to the next one and village shop."
