Holiday Cottages In Essex To Rent

Despite being a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of London, Essex is a peaceful retreat that couldn’t feel further away. Here you’ll find miles of rolling countryside and lush green fields. It’s an excellent location for a cottage holiday getaway.

After a sunny day walking in the countryside pick up some local delights to enjoy at your holiday cottage. From oysters to jam, Essex has a varied and delicious local fare. If you’re looking for more than miles of countryside Essex also has top attractions to choose from. Kids will love Colchester Zoo, there are numerous gardens and stately homes to explore, and for something a little different, gain a new perspective from the air with a hot air balloon ride.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Essex To Rent.

Robert - verified booking

"Arrived on the Friday, gentleman behind the desk was very nice and attentive. Said the hot tub would be warm by 8pm. got into the villa to find it a little grubby, it hadn't been cleaned to high standard at all, the table was sticky the pots were dirty when we came to use them, and the toilet had urine around the rim. The whole place just needed a deep clean. The hot tub wasn't warm by 8pm, as when we went to check it had been set at 26 degrees no the required 40 degrees so use of the hot tub on the first night was out of question. After we cleaned the villa and got the hot tub temperature sorted there was no further issues, apart from a lack of toilet rolls (only one per toilet) but we requested some more and got some. when we checked out of the villa we raised the issues of cleanliness and the hot tub to be told by a rather rude woman that we were told that the hot tub wouldn't be available on the first night and that it also stated in there lodge guides that this was the case, it didn't state this in the lodge guide at all and in fact reiterated the fact it would be ready by 8pm. Her reply on the state of the cleanliness of the lodge she stated that they were due a referb, which is of little use to use and is no excuse for a dirty lodge, I mean it isn't much to ask for a clean toilet. not a very helpful woman and very defensive even though they were Clearly in the wrong, we didn't ask for a refund or anything and only really got an appology when we were half way out of the door."

- Mr Bannister, May 2017 - verified booking

"We visit this area at least once every year, usually at a local caravan park so this was our first time in a holiday bungalow so not to sure what to expect. After the very first day we all agreed that this was perfect for our needs, the bungalow was impressively equipped, very clean and extremely comfortable. Although situated perhaps a little way out from the local amenities this was not so much of an issue for us as we had use of our car, if anything this actually added to the charm as the area was so peaceful. All in all we have had a great holiday at S37103and would certainly consider rebooking in the future."

A Holiday Lettings verified reviewer - verified booking

"S37103is a wonderful holiday cottage, very clean inside and all the modern amenities. The front garden/area is all paved so you can park off of the street. If you have any questions, Ray, the caretaker is only a phone call away and was very helpful and friendly. My daughter was ecstatic that there was wifi and it was very fast. The beach was only 5-7 minutes walk away. The bathroom (we're from America) was great with a nice shower with hotwater whenever you needed it, without having to worry if the boiler was on. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in the Clacton/Walton area."
