    We were very pleased with this cottage. It was well presented, clean and exactly as advertised. The only gripe would be the lack of mobile phone service on EE in this area. Next time I'll bring Vodaphone instead.

    the cottage is best suited for 2 or 3 people, we were 4 adults and it was a bit cramped, no seat for the 4th person, limited storage space. Not very much worktop area in kitchen. Some very nice touches, the enclosed garden gave peace of mind for our little dog. (Off street parking was also a bonus).

    A really nice,comfortable and very clean cottage. It was very cosy when it Snowed. The log burner was great. The bird table at the bottom of the garden was a magnet for a wide variety of birds. The garden would be really nice in the summer.

    My wife is a clean freak. Often the first half day of our holidays is spent by her cleaning the accommodation to get it up to her standard before she can relax. She didn't do that here because it was already super clean. So as long as they keep the same cleaner this wont be a problem ::) The property is absolutely perfect for two, would make a lovely weekend or week retreat. Very relaxing with a nice seating areas outside and in. We actually went as a family of four and used the bed settee in the lounge. It was a squeeze (Only one bedroom) but very functional and obviously with only one bedroom it was economically priced which was a part of our holiday equation. The settee bed was very comfortable. Very well equipped, TV and internet both available. Quiet location about 10 minutes drive from Tiptree where there is everything you will need (Supermarket, takeaways, baker, petrol station etc etc). 20 minutes to centre of Colchester or Heybridge which both have main stream high street offerings, macdonalds, etc.
