    "Lovely cottage Really felt comfortable and at homeWould definately visit againClaire"
    Ali ‐ 27 Nov 2018
    "We picked Baytree Cottage because we wanted somewhere small and quiet for a peaceful weekend away. It was the perfect choice. Just right for 2 people who wanted to not do very much! Local pub was lovely, just remember to take a torch if you'll be walking home in the dark.Would happily stay again."

    "Our second visit and just as good. Good walks, the cottage is excellent for our dog, and a very good pub just 2 minutes away. Pity that the little shop has gone but we had warning and came well supplied. Always warm and welcoming, and always immaculate on arrival."

    "We were very pleased with this cottage. It was well presented, clean and exactly as advertised. The only gripe would be the lack of mobile phone service on EE in this area. Next time I'll bring Vodaphone instead."
    Cameron ‐ 13 Jul 2018
    "the cottage is best suited for 2 or 3 people, we were 4 adults and it was a bit cramped, no seat for the 4th person, limited storage space.Not very much worktop area in kitchen.Some very nice touches, the enclosed garden gave peace of mind for our little dog. (Off street parking was also a bonus)."

    "A really nice,comfortable and very clean cottage. It was very cosy when it Snowed. The log burner was great. The bird table at the bottom of the garden was a magnet for a wide variety of birds. The garden would be really nice in the summer."

    "Nice warm cottage, peaceful & just what we needed for this time of year (February) - helpful hosts but left you alone 😊"
    Robert ‐ 4 Feb 2018
    "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. ;-)"

    "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."
