Description

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.

    Love love love. We had a big family get together for my nan's 90th. Plenty of space and loads of laughs in the games room and pool. Perfect for what we wanted.

    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.

    Great time, loved the pool. We played volleyball for at least 90 mins a day. Any chance of getting a net :-)

    A big hit with all the family from the youngest age 2 to the oldest age 88 ! Great to find family friendly accommodation in an excellent location for walks, exploring and a great chinese takeaway in the village. We hope to return when the next addition to our family has arrived later in the year. The equipment exceeded my expectations especially in the kitchen. Having an indoor pool was great as were the games rooms.

    Enjoyed our stay very much the pool a great attraction for our grandchildren aged 11 -16 but too cool for the adults. Wonderful welcome basket and very kind and thoughtful host. Beautiful area with lovely villages well worth visiting. Our two dogs enjoyed the many walks. It was a good week.

    We booked this property for a family holiday for 3 generations at half term for chilling out and to spend quality time together and we were able to do this in comfort. The open plan living room was big enough for us all and it was great to sit around the table altogether at mealtimes. There was a wonderful welcome pack and the property had lots of the things you often forget like toilet rolls and hand wash, foil & clingfilm. Could have done with a few more serving dishes, a whisk and a sharper set of knives but we survived! Initially we were a little concerned about paying extra for electricity but £65 for the week was fine considering how many iPads and phones we had to charge. The wifi is only available in the corner of the swimming pool area but as we had gone away to get away from it all we really didn't mind. The weather was cold but the radiators warm up quickly. Being all on one level, the property is perfect for anyone with mobility issues. The shower in the wet room was a disappointing dribble and the lack of mirrors was inconvenient but everyone was comfortable and had enough space. The swimming pool was great and having our own hour allocated so we could enjoy it by ourselves was a good idea. The minerals did smell funny because we are used to a chlorine pool but it didn't stop us having lots of fun.

    We all had an amazing time staying here and plenty of fun in the games room and pool. Our 40th birthday celebrations were very much enjoyed here by all adults and children. I wouldn't hesitate in coming back. The only downside is there could be power showers as the pressure was underwhelming. Also being presented with an electricity bill at the end was diaspointing this should have been factored into the price of the stay.
