    "Without a doubt, the first impression of S70340 is breathtaking. A lot of thought went into the design, original beams everywhere, well laid out, good furnishings and definitely has the wow factor. Really lovely bathroom, but the overhead shower very weak pressure.However for a property described as a “luxury cottage” there was a lack of attention to basic detail. Out of four bedside lamps, only one worked. On requesting replacements bulbs (which were provided immediately,) one lamp still did not work. Should have been checked before we arrived.As other visitors have also commented, I was amazed that there was an additional charge for the internet. The price stated is per device not a one off payment for connection which would have been bad enough. We had to top again as the vouchers only lasted two days. I have never come across this before, found it a bit penny pinching, a way to extract extra revenue at an inflated cost and unnecessarily annoying visitors.The property description says there is a bathroom/ toilet on the first floor with the bedrooms. This is not the case as it is four steps down from one of the bedrooms. When you open the bathroom door a blinding light comes on automatically as there are more steep steps down to the bathroom. The other bedroom, you have to go down the entire winding staircase to the ground floor to get to the other toilet. Very misleading and very annoying when you are half asleep. Not ideal in the middle of the night! The four poster was incredibly comfortable, but the other bed had a poor quality mattress which made you feel sea sick and had little support. Opposite the barn, there were three terriers that seemed to be enclosed in an outside pen most of the time, which at times barked for long periods.The area itself had very little places of interest and the local villages disappointing. Saving grace was Braintree shopping outlet which was 10 minutes away, where huge discounts were available and places to eat. If you like to shop, this is an amazing place to visit which we did several times and picked up some amazingly cheap bargains. Also a large Tesco about a mile away.On a positive note, in the Summer months, it would be lovely to use the private space available outside, ie bbq and garden. Also acres of land to go for walks and beautiful horses on the farm. Having enjoyed Holidaying in Country cottages all over the Country for over 30 years, S70340 was a welcome break but not somewhere we would wish to revisit."

    "Very good quiet sea view location 20 min walk from busy Clacton or a 5 min drive on the very edge of Holland on Sea. Lots of shops in area. Great beaches to visit nearby. The bungalow was refurbed this summer (2016) so bedding/towels and appliances were new on our stay. Furniture painted to keep the white fresh look. Wardrobes and dresser vintage. Bed seemed new and comfy. Its lovely quiet area, 2 of us stayed, with our dog, who loved it. Enclosed garden for dog or kids. Plenty new seating/table for outdoor eating. Great walks to enjoy along the sea front and prom. Staff left supplies in kitchen. Very kind. Quick and helpful email replies. Cute sun lounge at the front which is great for 2 to sit in the eve, looking across the sea. (We are couple with dog). Comfy place with all you need, good size lounge for 6 to sit and relax. Kitchen has stacks. Large cooker if you need it. Large new tv on lounge wall with suitable connection at the back if you did want to plug in your xbox or laptop and watch SKY Go or Netflix on a rainy day! We had rain only once during 2 weeks. Weather amazing. Great WIFI provided. If you have to do some work on hols. Our phone signal with EE was good. Recommend S69641 for a relaxed visit & sea view."

    "My partner and I have stayed in several holiday cottages over the years. We both agreed that this is the best one yet. It has everything you would need - a real home from home. It is spotlessly clean as well as being tastefully decorated and nice and warm.The kitchen is spacious and very well equipped, likewise the bathroom. The garden is also spacious and very well kept with a variety of interesting plants and shrubs. Fast and reliable Wifi is provided. On arrival, the owner was there to welcome us and to assure us that he would be always available should any questions or problems arise. He was very pet friendly. He also rang the evening before we left to ask if we had enjoyed our stay - the first time that has happened. All in all a wonderful place to stay which we could not recommend more highly."

    "Really impressed with all the little things that were supplied, like the welcome hamper, dishwasher tabs, hand wash, even a towel and poo bags for our dog . It was like staying in a home from home. There were lovely walks to take the dog and a big field to let him run off the lead. The facilities (pool, bar-b-que and games rooms) were great and the photos on the website do not do it justice. The pool room is particularly good and we made the most of it over our weekend. The village is really pretty and I'd recommend the Bell Inn for a meal, which welcomes dogs. The Castle is a short walk, but we went via the footpaths through the lovely woods and fields. It would have been great to go on the steam trains, but we had a wedding to attend, 10 minutes down the road at Gosfield House, so ran out of time."

    "We stayed as a family of four , with grandparents popping in for a few days as a surprise visit . We found the property to be clean and welcoming . It has obviously recently been modernised and has all you need for a holiday . The positioning of the property is approx 25 minutes walk to Clacton , the pier amusements the shopping centre the train station and all amenities . We walked there everyday ! Perfect ! The beautiful beach can be viewed from the living room and is a 5 minute walk to get down there . Very peaceful setting . Would we comeback again? Definatley we enjoyed our stay , lived the location , the property was perfect fir our needs , only issue was lack of eating table for 6 , was wobbly and not big enough , maybe padded lap trays could be purchased."
