    Jane, the owner was very friendly and helpful and cottage is well equipped, light and airy and comfortable. Excellent bathroom and kitchen with lots of equipment. Very dog friendly though dogs opposite get excited which may be a nuisance for neighbours. Good for bird watching and walks to the river. Very quiet. Only downsides (which are obvious in details) lack of wifi and dishwasher. The narrow lane to road may not be to everyone's taste but tractor drivers were very friendly and helpful when reversing needed!

    My family and I had a lovely stay at The Old Calf House which was made even more special by an attentive owner and lovely locals. The owner took the time to chat with me about local attractions, walks, local shops etc. which meant I didn't have to spend precious time on the internet. The views from the cottage are beautiful, and the cottage is more spacious and open then I expected from the pictures. We spent the week and enjoyed everyday, we'll book again soon.

    I stayed here while visiting relatives. It was perfect. I got a great welcome. I arrived to a lovely warm cottage with fresh milk in the fridge and tea and biscuits. I'm a bit of a clean freak and I couldn't fault this property. Very very clean. Beds were lovely and comfortable. Perfect stay for me 3 kids and my big friendly dog. Set right in the sticks perfect if you like walks and quiet yet in easy reach of all the amenities of Chelmesford. I would certainly stay here again!
