The ancient market town of Sudbury is nearby as is the Stour Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Dating back to Saxon times, there is a long history in the weaving and silk industries. Much of the work by Thomas Gainsbourgh was inspired by the beauty of Sudbury and you can visit his birthplace, art gallery and museum, exhibiting a number of his paintings. The area is particularly famous for the work of Constable and is referred to as ’Constable Country’. The River Stour provides the setting for much of his work. To the east you can visit Colchester with shopping, restaurants and pubs. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
Old Applecroft Farmhouse (ref UKC1462) and Old Applecroft Cottage (ref UKC1463) can be booked together to accommodate up to 12 guests.

    We really enjoyed our time here, the location, near the Henny Swan, was super! The property has an easy network of footpaths to find. The pool table was a let down as it didn’t work, the response from our complaint about it was ineffective. The tennis table was great though, new bats and plenty of balls. We stayed here with someone who has limited mobility and with help they managed navigating their way around. This person rated the cottage highly though would like some handles on the stairs down to the toilet. Equipment was good, however no welcome pack as described, tho soap and toilet rolls throughout. I would stay here again but the more particular in our group would not.

    The drive leading to the cottage is quite narrow but once you arrive and are able to unlock the difficult lock and enter the cottage you find it’s layout is very spacious. The doors into the garden were also difficult to open and the back gate in the garden is rotten and doesn’t close or lock. The sliding doors from the lounge into the unheated and leaky roof into Games Room also do not lock.There was no where to hang our coats the spacious hallway with eight of us 4 being under 15 it was missed.The folder with minimal instructions on the property would benefit from the updating of Heating controls, recycling of green and glass waste, kitchen equipment usage of and any local walks. There were a lot of dead or dopey wasps emerging in the bathroom and two of the bedrooms each day, nowhere else so probably a wasp nest thereabouts which should be investigated. The Sebo upright vacuum remained upright so we could only use the hose attachment to clear up after young children which wasn’t ideal. Raised this with cleaning company but not resolved. Various other cleaning issues we had on arrival on the Friday were resolved by the Monday however we had to clean the fridge before we could utilise. No Welcome Gift , which website states there will be. Having read other reviews we went prepared with toiletries and basic condiments . The annex bedroom is large enough for a dressing table and chair, the light carpet has nasty stains which need to be addressed. The Location was the best part of this cottage, if the issues I have detailed are recognised and resolved I would love to return and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the place in comfort.

    Very nice cottage, very spacious but it felt a little unloved. Very rural, and approach road was extremely narrow, especially if you met another car. Would not want to have to back up 100 yards in the dark. Couldn’t gain entry into the house for about 20 minutes due to lock box being so hard to open and unable to reach the contact number because we were given the wrong number. However, once in we did have a pleasant week. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and very good pub 1 mile away.

    A really fantastic house, very comfortable in a lovely remote location. Taxi's had trouble finding it but if you want a real quiet house that can comfortably cope with 8 guests this is the place to go.

    Disappointed to say that there is nothing provided in the way of welcome pack. No tea, coffee, milk, nothing. All that is provided is a toilet roll in each toilet. Not even any hand wash if you do need the toilet . Now, after a long journey to get there, the first thing you want to do is visit the bathroom and make a cup of tea. So beware, you have to bring everything you need as there is nothing there. Every cottage we have been to always has some items provided or left by previous guests, like hand wash, dishwasher tablets, washing powder, shampoo or shower gel, etc, etc. But this place appears to have been purposely stripped bare of anything useful. Check in time is 3pm. We arrived at 3:10 but had to wait outside until 3:30pm as the cleaners hadn't finished. The place is nice and clean but beware if you don't like spiders as there are plenty, especially at ceiling height. I don’t think the cleaners look above head height. The garden is nice and big with wooden bench seats on the patio. The conservatory is a great addition with pool table and table tennis. The pool table is in poor condition and needs re-covering, and the table tennis bats need replacing as the rubber has come off. There was clearly a swimming pool in the conservatory but, unfortunately, has been covered over. Would recommend the short walk to the Henny Swan pub. Good food and good beer.
