Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Within this ancient village, this lovely holiday home boasts far reaching views over the countryside.

In a rural location on the edge of the ancient village of Castle Hedingham, these two detached, single-storey holiday homes, set in the owners’ 10 acres of grounds, have far-reaching views over open countryside. The accommodation is well-presented and has the added benefit of a heated indoor swimming pool - the pool is shared between the two cottages (refs W43379 and W43233) and both are allocated 3 hours of private use per day (one hour in the morning, one in the afternoon and one in the evening - the rest of the time is shared use). There is also a large fully equipped barbecue area which can be hired. Castle Hedingham lies in the valley of the River Colne on the ancient road between Colchester (20 miles west) and Cambridge (30 miles east); it still retains many beautiful timber-framed, medieval and Tudor buildings including Hedingham Castle (a Norman castle, the ancestral seat of the Earls of Oxford). The area is ideal for walking or cycling. Nearby places of interest include the Colne Valley steam railway, Sudbury and Saffron Walden. Shop, pub and restaurant 0.5 miles.

    We had a lovely chill-out weekend before Xmas. The cottage is clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped for the 8 of us. We didn't use the pool or the games rooms as we were out walking most afternoon. The shower could benefit with an update (weak flow rate). The owner is friendly and most helpful.

    A great property it was perfect for the 10 of us. We had everything we needed, the pool is absolutely superb and the kids had a fantastic time. The BBQ is excellent too and there are lots of great county walks and things to do in the area. We would definitely go back again.

    Excellent on site facilities in a safe environment for children and dogs alike. The pool is fantastic. Plenty of space to play and roam. Lovely village. Only slight niggle was the showers were underpowered and difficult to get a stable temperature, hopefully this will be rectified. The cottage itself is very spacious and well equipped. 3 games rooms kept everyone entertained, they also contained some games for outside. Lovely setting 200 yards down a country lane.
