    This is one of the best cottages that we have booked. Jane is so friendly and helpful, the welcome pack and flowers were much appreciated. The cottage is very clean and warm. Everything that we required was there. An excellent holiday cottage.

    We loved the Old Calf House... and are already planning to visit again. It's location is perfect for us, partly because it is close to family, but also for it's setting in such a beautiful part of Essex. Such a treat to look out at hares boxing and so many birds in the field behind the cottage. The cottage itself is welcoming and warm and Jane is the perfect host, around when needed but not intrusive. A great find!

    Perfectly placed for us as our son was singing at Chelmsford Cathedral over Christmas. Also enjoyed feeling that we had got away from it all. We really appreciated the welcome pack and the Christmas decorations. Some of the kitchen chairs had missing struts and collapsed on us at times.

    A lovely cottage set in a quiet location with beautiful views. The cottage had everything you would need and Jane visited to see if we needed anything. I would highly recommend staying here and I will book the cottage again

    The old calf house was perfect for our stay. It was set in an idyllic location although quite far from larger towns, but not really a big issue. The cottage was extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. The owners visited a few times to make sure we had all that we needed. I would highly recommend it.

    It would have been better to have two bathrooms, one at the other end of the property as there were three bedrooms.

    This was a home away from home. Wonderful setting, so peaceful and spacious. Thoroughly recommended for an escape in the countryside. Only negatives, some more bench space in the bathroom would have been useful and the sofa beds in the living room were not for comfortable for sitting on. A new frying pan might be due as well. But all in all a most enjoyable stay and hosts Jane and Richard were very friendly and accommodating.
