"S42466 is beautiful, just beautiful. As someone who manages 50,000 sq ft I know about property and facilities management and the house and gardens are immaculate. The rooms are spacious and well furnished - practical and tastefully furnished. It is extremely clean throughout, nothing was out of place.The facilities for hosting a large event are perfect - even down to four sauceboats! The kitchen has an aga which, for those not used to it, can be intimidating. However, with a little forethought into what you intend to cook and a review of the cook books provided (and/ or prior research) means it does not need to be overly concerning. The grounds are extensive and vary between woodland and grass. Plenty of room for a game of cricket or rounders! The administration from booking through to arrival and beyond is a well oiled machine, with every question you could consider answered easily. I have no hesitation in scoring S42466 10/10. There was truly not one thing which was lacking and everything was extremely well prepared. My only tip - Get your booking secured as soon as you can!"

"My wife is a clean freak. Often the first half day of our holidays is spent by her cleaning the accommodation to get it up to her standard before she can relax. She didn't do that here because it was already super clean. So as long as they keep the same cleaner this wont be a problem ::)The property is absolutely perfect for two, would make a lovely weekend or week retreat. Very relaxing with a nice seating areas outside and in. We actually went as a family of four and used the bed settee in the lounge. It was a squeeze (Only one bedroom) but very functional and obviously with only one bedroom it was economically priced which was a part of our holiday equation. The settee bed was very comfortable. Very well equipped, TV and internet both available. Quiet location about 10 minutes drive from Tiptree where there is everything you will need (Supermarket, takeaways, baker, petrol station etc etc). 20 minutes to centre of Colchester or Heybridge which both have main stream high street offerings, macdonalds, etc."

"The location is brilliant. Peaceful.We stayed at this cottage in 2014 and it was excellent however 4yrs on and it is looking tired. Patio is full of weeds and the garden furniture had better days. This is a no smoking property but the chimnea was full if cigarette ends. BBQ was dirty. Inside there were big black cobwebs over the ceiling and velux Windows. By the time we left we had weeded some of the patio and cleaned the chimnea and BBQ out. We also cleared the cobwebs. The inside is looking tired and needs a lick of paint.The toilet flush was not working great when we arrived and we were using a kitchen utensil to press the flush. By the 4th day we were using a saucepan to fill with water to flush the toilet. We did contact the housekeeper and a plumber came to have a look on the day we left. This cottage is a lovely little gem and it's a shame because it's now looking unloved."

"Excellent house and accommodation Very Clean high standards and a Beautiful location. the kitchen is a little larger in Baytree Cottage 2 which helps and it has a small garden area.I was very satisfied and it has all equipment you will need for your stay and lovely and warm and very clean to a very good standard. money value is also good compared with others and 15 to 20 minutes to Colchester. nice pub 50 yards away and good dog walks. zoo half mile away and Trevor a good host he leaves you to enjoy your stay and you have parking off road. Excellent for a short stay to see Colchester. I have been there a few times since October so I can recommend this house and value for money. Rob Enjoy. ;-)"

"Fabulous find ! Arrived in misty weather so waking up to the view over the marina was wonderful. Jean was there to meet us and was very helpful and friendly. Cottage is really well equipped especially the kitchen (great for us foodies who like to cook) and peaceful. Views are just lovely as are the wooded grounds it sits in. Lovely, easy 2 mile walk along the river to Burnham which is a really nice little town with plenty of pubs and eateries. You can probably get most of what you need in the town in the Coop or the Tesco but as we wanted fish we popped to Asda (15 mins drive - shame there isn't a fish shop in the town). All in all a fantastic little find - highly recommended - we will be back. "
