About Essex

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

    Verified purchase

    "Great location and quality fixtures and fittings. Roomy and comforable beds. Noise transmission a slight problem, shame there was not a solid party wall or noise insulaion between the cottages. Outside a bit run down in that weeds and dockings all around and planters full of weeds. Property not properly checked between guests, we had to have a new toilet and oven. This was dealt with promptly. Fuse also tripped when bulb blew. Many bulbs missing/not working. Hoover left full and too heavy to carry upstairs. Good eateries near by, but booking essential. Owner seemed to only be liked to be contacted by text. Refuse/recycling policy not clear and no spare bin liners left."

    "The cottage was clean and the location was wonderful. The walk in shower was excellent, the kitchen was small but adequate and the small table top freezer was useful. There were a couple of negatives. One was the bed. This was one of the low bed frame type with a rather thin mattress which for anyone with a bad back or knee problems is an issue. The second was the provision of the modern high seat kitchen stools. For a cottage that is other wise excellent for those with mobility problems this was a little surprising but at the end of the day I managed and the outside patio table and chairs were very welcome allowing me to watch the wildlife in the large field."

    "Fantastic find. I needed to find somewhere that I could take my dog whilst I was visiting family over the New Year. None of the local hotels accept pets so was getting desperate. How lucky were we to find this gorgeous cottage to stay in. It has everything you need (except a hairdryer!) Located in the country park so lovely countryside on your doorstop. Bed was comfortable in the bedroom downstairs. There was a mezzanine level with 2 single beds that would only be suitable for a child. Bathroom had a walk in shower as well as a claw foot bath. Kitchen very well equipped.The cottage was very clean and cleaning tools were available if you needed them."

    "The purpose of our visit was to visit an elderly relative nearby. In that respect the cottage was ideal.The location in the Langdon Hills was lovely and perfect for walking the dog with walks literally on the doorstep.The accommodation is good for 2 adults - the mezzanine sleeping area is really only suitable for children as there is limited headroom.In terms of facilities, the cottage needs updating to bring it up the standards we expect.We were fortunate to have quiet neighbours for the majority of our stay but on the last few nights we were kept awake - poor soundproofing!There is no DVD as advertised."

    "We lived nearby for a considerable number of years and did not appreciate the areasurrounding the cottage. We were over from France for our annual visit to see friends and relatives and found the cottage perfect.Basildon is never going to be a must visit holiday area, but it provides good shopping, access to public transport to London and further afield. The coast, our favourite Southend,but also the more peaceful villages of Essex, Suffolk, and Kent, providing you are willing to risk the charms of Dartford Tunnel!The cottage is well equipped,warm, and our landlady helpful, just what we wanted."
