This property is part of our English Country Cottages collection

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Filled with attractive features and set in an Area of Natural Beauty, this holiday will delight everyone.

This delightful, holiday cottage is attached to the owner’s period property and its name refers to the stunning floor-to-ceiling window in the bedroom. It is set in an AONB in the Dedham Vale where the artist John Constable painted many of his famous scenes. Set in the owner’s grounds, with its own private area of garden, it is the ideal choice for a romantic break and is in an excellent area for walking and cycling. The nearby Roman town of Colchester has an excellent range of shops, as well as a zoo and castle. The peaceful Stour Estuary, Maningtree, and Mistley are a 6-minute drive, whilst London is less than an hour away by train. An excellent location to explore all the delights of both Essex and Suffolk. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    Quiet and peaceful.Enjoyed our stay immensely. The views over the fields from the bedroom were super. Hope to return soon.

    A well maintained, clean, bright and comfortable property. The owners, who lived in the main house were very pleasant and not intrusive. An added bonus and entertainment, were the three alpacas in the field at the end of the garden!

    It is a real shame that this delightful cottage suffers from the proximity to a busy lane. Although only a B road it is used as a link to the nearby A12 making it quite busy, especially during the morning and evening . This means that we were unable to leave the bathroom window open at night, and because there is no other ventilation in the bedroom it meant a lack of fresh air . As a couple who have their bedroom window open even in winter, it was very noticable. Even a Dyson fan didn't make enough difference. As I say , this is a real shame because everything else was really good, including the three Alpacas watching us over the fence.

    We had a really lovely holiday in a beautiful modern cottage, it had everything you could want, the owners were exceptionally nice. The area was very central for many lovely gardens especially being in Constable Country, we loved the area.
