    Essex is an uninteresting county, no comparison with its northern neighbours Suffolk and Norfolk. The layout of The Goat House is somewhat strange in that the wet room is off the lounge, kitchen dinner. The kitchen area is very small and the fridge is down near the floor.

    Unfortunately there was a total lack of privacy, the cottage is directly outside the owners house with their movement, use of petrol tools and customers around the cottage all day.
