What our customers are saying about our New Year Cottages In Essex To Rent.
Andrew - verified booking
"When we arrived at the premises Hillcroft, it was blowing a gale and raining. However when we entered the premises there were electric storage heaters installed, but they we not switched on. The only other heating was an electric convector heater on the wall in the bedroom! Also, there was only a thin summer quilt on the double bed, and no additional bedding in the premises. When the owner arrived at 6:00PM, she stated that we could not use the storage heaters as they used too much electricity! Instead she offered a small oil filled electric radiator, and a winter quilt for the bed! We then found that there were no instructions for the bath shower, and the plug in the bathroom since did not hold the water in. As a result, we had to wash in the kitchen sink! The toilet seat was loose, and when you flushed the toilet it flushed twice by itself. There were no coat hangers in the wardrobe, so coats and shirts could only be hung on the back of the front door at the bottom of the stairs. The kitchen equipment was basic, with only essential utensils, the light over the cooker did not work, and was replaced by a battery light, but the batteries were dead! Need I say anymore! As a result of the cold accommodation, and the other points above, we have left the premises this morning. From the initial response by the owner I did not bother to raise these points with her."

"This should have been a fantastic property. Owners have neglected it. Cobwebs, dirty windows, overgrown enclosed garden, dirty towel, unemptied bins, lack of blinds and curtains just took the sparkle off our stay.The weather was great so we thoroughly enjoyed walking around the garden where there was a mowed route for people to enjoy. Not sure how much we would have enjoyed this had there been somebody in the neighbouring cottage which looks as open to being looked in on as the property we stayed in with the exception of the hall between the two wings which was all glass and no curtains (this is the only way from the downstairs bedroom to the downstairs bathroom), and the fact the next door cottage windows look straight into the conservatory.The conservatory is a great seating room with table tennis table and pool table.The granny annex was nice but isolated from the rest of the property with its own lounge and bathroom.We wanted a nice quiet getaway and it certainly was that."

"I enjoyed a lovely week at the two properties and would have rated them both higher if it was not for the lack of such things as basic condiments and tea bags etc. on arrival. Although there was a large garden area, there was only one croquet set with missing hoops to keep both youngsters and adults amused. We did buy a couple of outside games which we have left at the property for others. We have also left a supply of the basic condiments for the next family that follows us in. I had requested a cot which we thought had been forgotten but then found under seating two days into our holiday. I believe this is a fairly new holiday rental and so assume these to be teething problems. They are both lovely properties, well maintained and in a beautiful setting. I would recommend them to anyone that wishes for a quiet holiday away from the hurly-burly of modern living and away from busy roads."

"Took the family away for a long weekend 7 adults plus two grandchildren and two dogs farmhouse was very good plenty of room for everyone.We spent a lot of time in games room, table tennis + pool table and two large leather sofas to sit and chat.Location very good plenty of space to walk with the dogs on the public footpaths however quiet enough not to be disturbed.If I had anything constructive to say would be1 The heating could have been put on for our arrival as it’s February and it took quite a while to be warm ( once heating kicked in it was fine)2. The road on the way up to the farmhouse has a lot of quite big potholes which is q unite a concern because if you went a little too fast could be tricky.All in all I would recommend you stay in the farmhouse if you looking for a relaxing place to have a fabulous family weekend."

"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."
