    "We have stayed at The Croft for over 20 years. Darren is attentive and seeks people's views and feedback in order that any situations are handled first and foremost. The bedrooms are so clean and comfy and the fire is a treat to sit before in the evenings. We did not even watch the television, just sat in the comfort and warmth of this lovely house."

    "Cosy cottage in rural Essex. Great feature wood burner and well equipped kitchen. Sitting room has a large fireplace with wood burner and the cottage is very warm. Ideal for two and maybe close relatives as adjoining rooms with only one safe set of stairs. Bathroom is large with powerful shower. Pub next door does a good Sunday lunch. Excellent butcher in the village and we had a takeaway from The Indian in Halstead - The Cinnemon Tree."

    "This is our home from home as we see our grandchildren. It is so cosy and has everything you need for a perfect stay."

    "Very pleased with the stay in this property. Only one small thought, and it will only apply to the very lightest of sleepers like me, some secondary glazing if possible would help in the bedrooms of this lovely old listed cottage as it has very old windows."
    Nigel ‐ 14 Aug 2018
    "A well located ,charming cottage. Pub next door very welcoming and dog friendly. Good local walks. Would definitely stay again."

    "This is a fantastic cottage with lots of character, not for those that want perfect straight lines and smooth surfaces, but for those looking for character and comfort. The cottage had all that we needed for a family including two late teenage sons. wifi worked perfectly, including outside to the patio which is perfect for an early evening drink. Kitchen is well stocked with the usual pans etc, and the cooker looks barely used, the dishwasher a lovely help to allow you to relax. Plenty of shops, takeaways etc within a 5 minute walk, including a well stocked coop. Previous reports have talked about squirrels, well we didn't see or hear anything during our week, but we did keep food locked away as this is a rural location. The fire in the sitting room looked very appealing, but we were here when the temperature barely dropped below 25 degrees, so no need for us to light it. There are plenty of relaxing walks from the footpath and bridleway starting from right outside the front door, so miles of open countryside begging to be explored. We visited the pub nest door on our next to last evening, what a mistake. Very friendly staff with real ale served straight from the barrel, absolutely wonderful! The only reason I have marked the location down is because the pub has music evenings, I loved them but others may not. Would I recommend - Yes, would I go again - Yes. Darren was great to contact and answered my questions very quickly and efficiently, thank you."

    "We enjoyed our stay in a week of searing heat. The cottage was well equipped, beds comfortable and there was an abundance of hot water.Equipment included a washer, dish washer, microwave. We ate out with family and friends so cannot comment on the workings of the cooking arrangements. The TV performed well.The cottage, built in the 15th century and sited on a minor road, was charmingly rustic with wood beams, uneven floors, varying floor levels and steep, narrow creaky stairs - these characteristics test a very senior visitor!! The week's high temperatures meant bedroom windows had to be open and we found the traffic quite disturbingfrom 5 am onwards.Overall very pleasant recollections and, as mentioned earlier, we would choose to stay in "The Croft" again."

    "This is a delightful, quaint and quirky cottage set in a lovely rural village with a small idyllic, well maintained, pretty and secluded garden to the rear. Stunning Rose of Sharon bushes in full flower and other shrubbery provides total privacy. The garden is fully enclosed which enabled our pet to wander round at his leisure without the worry of him escaping. There was also a summerhouse with a small decked area and even a barbecue for the BBQ enthusiasts.The cottage was extremely well appointed throughout with absolutely everything thought of to make our stay as smooth and comfortable as possible. Whilst the stairs are not suitable for people with mobility issues, the bedrooms were nicely furnished with extremely comfortable beds in both rooms. Unusually, the master bedroom had a super king sized bed comprising two singles joined together and plenty of storage space. Really good sized bathroom on the ground floor with a bath and a really good, powerful shower. It was a bonus having a dining room separate from the lounge and a kitchen which also had a table and chairs. The owners Darren and Karen were very welcoming and accommodating; as was the landlord of the White Lion next door who allowed us to use his car park to avoid on street parking.We were astonished to read the negative review of the previous visitors. Quite frankly there was no evidence of the problem they referred to and there would have been. That said, why visit the countryside if you can't cope with what goes with country life. Equally the garden was certainly not overgrown - it was very much in keeping with such a lovely 15th century country cottage.We stayed for 5 days and hope to have the opportunity of staying again.We were amazed to read of the previous negative review."

    "Lovely cottage. Garden a bit overgrown. Not suitable for people with mobility problems. During our stay there was a problem with a rodent (mouse/rat) which owner was made aware of."
    Gary ‐ 5 Jun 2018
    "We had a lovely time staying in this house which is full of character, clean and well equipped. Great walks from the door and a range of shops nearby. The owners were very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the garden area which was great for sitting out with a glass of wine (or two)."
    Cara ‐ 21 Apr 2018
    "A lovely cottage, fully equipped and just like home. Thank you for the Welcome pack!"
    Anna ‐ 3 Apr 2018
    "Fabulous house and Darren was so helpful! Hopefully will be back soon!"
    Chris ‐ 24 Mar 2018
    "A unique cottage full of character and history, carefully restored and beautifully maintained. Its cosy nature was perfect for the snow-filled week we stayed. It is surrounded by idyllic villages and major historical centres."
    Peter ‐ 21 Mar 2018
    "In summary the Croft proves to display a character of tradition and natural living:The good of the cottage is compromised by a metal plate close by in the road, which is a constant menace to a peaceful rest or sleep on some days."
    Teresa ‐ 3 Mar 2018
    "Fabulous stay beautiful cottage in a lovely location"
