    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.

    If you want a holiday away from the cares of the modern world then this is the place for you. This is a lovely holiday cottage in an idyllic location, nothing was too much trouble for the lovely owners and the welcome pack of tea/coffee/milk plus cereals and biscuits was very welcome. The fact that there is no wifi or 3G would probably suit some people but as we were in the area to attend a wedding it was a nuisance for us. The old calf house is on a working farm in the beautiful Essex countryside with many nearby walks and abundant wildlife, some of which did come to visit us in the cottage!

    Really nice, clean, simple bu comfortable. A really peaceful location with beautiful views over the countryside. Noone bothered us, although we felt the owners were always in hand we didn't meet once which is just what we like being reclusive types! We will definitely stay again. The tea, coffee, biscuits and milk on the table upon our arrival were very much appreciated. Thanks

    A brilliant quiet place to stay in the Essex countryside and yet only 5 miles from Chelmsford. We were having a new kitchen installed and it made THE perfect getaway place. Highly recommended.
