Welcome Cottages

Lakeside, seaside, countryside, hillside…wherever you can picture your perfect cottage, you’ll find it with Welcome Cottages!


Within this ancient village, this lovely holiday home boasts far reaching views over the countryside and includes a heated swimming pool.

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.

    Comfortable cottages and good facilities. Bathrooms bit hospital like. But this was only downside as pool and facilities entertained kids. Would rather pay more for rental to include electricity than be presented with a bill at end.

    The only thing I had a problem with, was having to pay for our electric, even though the accommodation was full of solar panels.

    We had an amazing time with friends and family staying in both Diablo and another cottage celebrating my nephew's 18th birthday. The owners were so lovely, friendly and very accomodating, moving a table from one cottage to the other allowing us to eat all together. We would definately recommend this cottage and would, without a doubt, return there again.

    Wow, talk about space! We had 8 adults and plenty of space, plenty of cooking utensils and crockery. The owners were really helpful and very considerate. They provided us a welcome basket with coffee, tea, milk, shortbread and a bottle of wine :) We really enjoyed playing pool and table tennis and it was lovely having the pool to ourselves and being able to play CDs in the pool too! We would recommend this gem to anyone.

    There was nine of us staying here and the cottage was very spacious and clean. The indoor swimming pool was fun and it was great that we had our own private times there. Overall a great weekend stay.

    Our second stay here, we love it! Clean, comfy, spacious and really well equiped! Kids loved the swimming pool and games rooms. Looking forward to booking again.

    A great holiday cottage. We stayed with 6 adults and 4 children. Plenty of space and the pool is an excellent addition. Would book again in a heartbeat

    The only downside was not being able to leave our two dogs in apt alone. However, I didn't ask so maybe they would have let me.
