    About this property

    This delightful lodge on Wakes Hall Farm is a haven of peace in 500 acres of private land. Having recently been awarded a five star AA award it features an open plan kitchen/dining/sitting area, a verandah and a hot tub. The historic town of Colchester is 40 minutes away.

    Endymion Lodge is one of five detached luxury lodges, located in idyllic countryside on the Wakes Hall Estate in the breath-taking Colne Valley on the Essex/Suffolk border. Each lodge boasts a verandah and the ultimate indulgence – a soothing hot tub, surrounded by 500 acres of land and walks to the village of Wakes Colne.
    Wakes Hall Lodges offer the ultimate place to escape the city or your hectic lives. Nature lovers will have a wonderful time taking in the stunning flora and fauna of the delightful countryside. As well as a stunning fishing lake stocked with Carp and Roach, there are an endless number of woodland walks to explore, including the neighbouring willow woodland where the trees are farmed to make cricket bats. Visitors often enjoy a short amble to the local village where there is a shop and post office and a picturesque pub beside the River Colne that serves locally brewed beer. Local beauty salons provide a full range of services for visitors to the lodges, and for those looking for an extra special treat, we can arrange for a fully trained chef to serve up a delectable feast from the comfort of your lodge.
    Also available to book through Rural Retreats are Brook Lodge (sleeping two guests); Campion Lodge (sleeping two guests); Ransom Lodge (sleeping four guests); and Woodbell Lodge (sleeping four guests).

    "It was a lovely lodge, quiet and private. Relaxing in the hot tub in the afternoons. Not far from the nearest town, plenty of walks around the area. The only downside was the towel rail in the bathroom did not work, it was reported on the second day but was never fixed, We were told it had not been working for the last two years, so we had to ask for some more towels as we were unable to dry ours or our swimwear as we used the hot tub everyday. Apart from that we had a lovely few days."

    "Lovely clean spacious lodge, hamper on arrival was fab.. Hot tub was a bonus and checked daily. Lovely walks around fields, lakes and forest..only down side not too much for kiddies to do unless go off site, which we all couldn't go as took our dog so someone had to stay at all times with him as not allowed to leave pets unsupervised.."

    "Fantastic Location. Having used Rural Retreats for many years we could not fault the location and the fantastic fishing lake. The lodge was spacious and airy. We would have given five stars but the lodge was not up to the usual standards of cleanliness that we have always experienced from using Rural Retreats. The lounge furniture and bedroom carpets were tired. This may be due to the fact dogs were allowed at the property."

    "This property would have four stars except for the condition of the kitchen equipment which was well below what we have come to expect from Rural Retreats. The washing machine was old and the door button broke (apparently it has happened previously) and we were unable to get our clothes out. The tumble element didn’t work. The dishwasher was corroded and rusty inside, therefore we decided to wash dishes in the sink. A couple of baking trays were dirty and very well-used. A couple of crockery pieces were quite chipped and the frying pans provided were used to the point they had lost the non-stick element. The egg cups provided were also rusted and unsightly, again they were not used. This information was reported to the email provided for Wakes Colne lodges while we were there and I advised I had photos if that would help, but no response was received. Everything else was wonderfully comfortable and we had a great relaxing break, but the kitchen equipment needs attention. This is not what we have experienced before through Rural Retreats or would expect."

    "I am not exaggerating when I say 'Out of this world'. We arrived on Good Friday for the Easter weekend. Our lodge was ready before check in time so we were allowed to begin our weekend early. We walked in and were overwhelmed by the size of the lodge. It is beautifully decorated and spacious and wowed us from opening the front door. My Fiance and I had the master room - this was truly outstanding. The bathroom is huge and again decorated beautifully. Our friends had the twin room and again was beautifully decorated. The views from the veranda are great and they over look the lake on the hill. The first day was a little cloudy but this didn't dampen our spirits. After unpacking we opened a bottle of Champagne as we were celebrating our recent engagement. We opened the hot tub and in we got. We stayed there for 5 hours! Anyway the whole weekend was amazing and we are already planning our next visit with our friends. Thank you so much to the housekeeper as well, she was always at the end of the phone if you needed her."
