Located in the peaceful village of Boxted in the Dedham Vale, Farthings is a single-storey holiday home with valley views from the garden. One of a pair, furnished and equipped to a very high standard, the property has added bonus of a hot tub and detached games room in the garden. Guests also have private use of the owner’s outdoor heated swimming pool (open May to end September), and large enclosed hot tub, as well as use of the owner’s extensive grounds - which have many delightful areas where guests might like to picnic. The surrounding area is a delight to explore: there are many footpaths in the village and Flatford Mill, in the heart of Constable Country is 4 miles away. Dedham village is 3 miles, where guests can hire a rowing boat on the River Stour or enjoy walking in the unspoilt countryside. Farthings is also conveniently located for golf at nearby Stoke-by-Nayland (2 miles) whilst keen gardeners may enjoy a visit to Beth Chatto’s Garden, 7 miles. Nearby Colchester, famous for being the oldest town in England, has a castle and museum set in attractive parkland that stretches down to the River Colne, a zoo and an interesting range of shops, restaurants, galleries and pubs. Colchester also has a rail link to London which takes 50 minutes, so visitors can enjoy a day in the busy capital city and then return to the peace and tranquillity of Farthings. For a day by the sea, guests can choose between the sunshine coast of Essex at Frinton-on-Sea, Walton-on-the-Naze and Clacton or the Heritage coastline of nearby Suffolk where the beaches at Felixstowe, Aldeburgh, Southwold or Walberswick can be enjoyed. Pub 2½ miles.

    Had a great time and there was plenty of things to do. It was very cosy and warm and the heating was available whenever you wanted it, there was no set times. Cannot fault the place. If there were any issues the care taker is always available to deal with the problem and is also very friendly

    Absolutely loved it there it was really nice, everything there you could wish for, the hot tub being a big bonus. Jill next door was lovely so helpful and left us a lovely fruit cake, bread, milk etc. Can't wait to go again in the summer so we can use the pool.

    Gill gave us a warm welcome. The welcome pack of food was very handy and having previously been advised to order a delivery the rest of our needs arrived about an hour after we did. Gill had even offered to put the food away if it arrived in the morning. Staying at Farthings was just what we all needed. It was spacious, plenty of room for the five of us and the dog who had an enclosed garden to run about with. Everyone enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Walks around the area are so beautiful and we had a wonderful Sunday lunch at the Anchor Inn at Nayland. It's a 30 minute drive to the sea. Flatford Mill is only a short drive or a decent walk away. A really good place to explore the area from.
