    "Without a doubt, the first impression of S70340 is breathtaking. A lot of thought went into the design, original beams everywhere, well laid out, good furnishings and definitely has the wow factor. Really lovely bathroom, but the overhead shower very weak pressure.However for a property described as a “luxury cottage” there was a lack of attention to basic detail. Out of four bedside lamps, only one worked. On requesting replacements bulbs (which were provided immediately,) one lamp still did not work. Should have been checked before we arrived.As other visitors have also commented, I was amazed that there was an additional charge for the internet. The price stated is per device not a one off payment for connection which would have been bad enough. We had to top again as the vouchers only lasted two days. I have never come across this before, found it a bit penny pinching, a way to extract extra revenue at an inflated cost and unnecessarily annoying visitors.The property description says there is a bathroom/ toilet on the first floor with the bedrooms. This is not the case as it is four steps down from one of the bedrooms. When you open the bathroom door a blinding light comes on automatically as there are more steep steps down to the bathroom. The other bedroom, you have to go down the entire winding staircase to the ground floor to get to the other toilet. Very misleading and very annoying when you are half asleep. Not ideal in the middle of the night! The four poster was incredibly comfortable, but the other bed had a poor quality mattress which made you feel sea sick and had little support. Opposite the barn, there were three terriers that seemed to be enclosed in an outside pen most of the time, which at times barked for long periods.The area itself had very little places of interest and the local villages disappointing. Saving grace was Braintree shopping outlet which was 10 minutes away, where huge discounts were available and places to eat. If you like to shop, this is an amazing place to visit which we did several times and picked up some amazingly cheap bargains. Also a large Tesco about a mile away.On a positive note, in the Summer months, it would be lovely to use the private space available outside, ie bbq and garden. Also acres of land to go for walks and beautiful horses on the farm. Having enjoyed Holidaying in Country cottages all over the Country for over 30 years, S70340 was a welcome break but not somewhere we would wish to revisit."

    "The owners have paid a lot of attention to detail in presenting this cottage to a very high standard. However, for my wife and I, in our 70's, it was the smaller details which spoilt our stay with our 9 year old dog.On entering the living room area it was lovely to see fresh flowers.When sitting down to watch TV there was a table between the chair and the TV. On the table was a vase of flowers, lovely, but I cannot see the TV as the flowers are in the way. I need to move them, where, to the large coffe table which takes up a lot of floor space. I am wonky on my legs, be very careful or you might have a breakage to pay for!The car parking space is some way from the cottage door and with a full car of luggage for a four night stay it would be considerate of the owners to move their cars which block an easier route just for 5 minutes for unloading and loading. Especially important for someone with a disability.There was not an enclosed garden as stated in the spec for this cottage but applied to the other cottage on site. An iron table and chairs are provided but we had to sit holding our dog on his lead in a very small space trying to stop the table wobbling as well while we drank a morning coffee. The traffic noise from the nearby A12 was very intrusive to spending a quiet peaceful time in the garden.The bed was very very comfortable and we slept very well. However, at 6am loud local traffic noise from the road outside starts and continues until around 8.30am. The bedroom has one window. This opens 4 metres away from the backdoor of the owners cottage. Any coming and going by the owners or visitors was very close to us in the bedroom and we could hear every word spoken.The road outside the cottage does not have any pavements so in our opinion it was not safe to walk with a dog let alone without one. During our stay I did not see anybody walking in the road but visitors to this cottage will be wanting to walk their dogs and will need to use their car.We had booked for four nights but left after three feeling very disappointed."

    "We loved every minute of our stay here! The owners who live next door were very welcoming, helpful but unobtrusive. In the huge fridge they had left us the cutest kilner bottle of milk which was a thoughtful touch and on the dining table a complimentary bottle of Prosecco and a Chocolate Easter bunny which was another welcome surprise that we enjoyed! The cottage is cosy and charmingly decorated and very well equipped, we even got to make use of the barbecue on the back patio. It really felt like a 'home from home'. What was great for us was that our dog was welcome too and got his very own complimentary doggy treat and dog food water bowls were also provided. There is a big orchard at the back of the cottage which we could walk the dog in and also lots of public footpaths nearby. The cottage was easy to find and there is a community shop nearby in Langham. Langham is also home to a fabulous pub called The Shepherd which we went to often. The staff there are really friendly and the recently renovated interior is stylish and modern whilst still being cosy. They served great food and also allows dogs in the bar area which was also just perfect for us. We hope to be able to go back very soon."

    "Really impressed with all the little things that were supplied, like the welcome hamper, dishwasher tabs, hand wash, even a towel and poo bags for our dog . It was like staying in a home from home. There were lovely walks to take the dog and a big field to let him run off the lead. The facilities (pool, bar-b-que and games rooms) were great and the photos on the website do not do it justice. The pool room is particularly good and we made the most of it over our weekend. The village is really pretty and I'd recommend the Bell Inn for a meal, which welcomes dogs. The Castle is a short walk, but we went via the footpaths through the lovely woods and fields. It would have been great to go on the steam trains, but we had a wedding to attend, 10 minutes down the road at Gosfield House, so ran out of time."

    "We had a nice warm welcome to this lovely cottage by the owners. The interior design is absolutely beautiful. There was Prosecco, chocolates, milk & sparkling water waiting for us, all prettily presented. There was everything we needed & more. Nothing was too much trouble & they were very helpful with regards to places to walk & where to eat but they weren't intrusive. The outside of the property was stunning & very peaceful. A lot of thought & effort has gone into making this cottage extra special & I would recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere with that added 'special' touch. I forgot to mention that a baking tray/sheet would be useful. Wishing Dave & Joanne all the very best in their new adventure."
