    Absolutely fabulous cottage. Every little detail has been thought about from the welcome pack to soaps and shampoos. Have already booked to go back again. Cannot recommend this cottage highly enough had a wonderful few days.

    This is a very nice little house, conveniently located for Colchester and the surrounding areas and we had a lovely stay there.

    All in all the cottage was very nice except for the sofa bed which was very uncomfortable to sit on and if there were four people staying there was no fourth seat to sit on, but I would recommend the cottage to family and friends and would stay there again if we happen to be down that way.

    Lovely wee cottage, just right for a few nights' stop-over for me to work (shooting a wedding locally) and taking the opportunity to catch up with family nearby. It is very cosy, beautifully kept and well equipped. It is also quite weeny, so I would suggest that whilst it's good for 2 adults and 1 or 2 younger children, the sofa bed downstairs is not ideal for 2 adults. The roll-together was hilarious and my husband ended up sleeping better on the floor. In fact, if there are four of you, just bring an airbed instead. To be fair though it's only because our children are a little older and needed the twin bed arrangement upstairs, so we drew the short straw with the sofa bed. Having said all that, it was just what we needed as we were only staying for a few nights. Quiet and pretty location with private off-street parking and easy access to both Tiptree and Colchester. I would definitely recommend it!



    out of 10

    A lovely cottage - well stocked and very clean. A joy to stay in with no complaints from us at all. We would recommend it. Lovely location and very nice garden. Also the cottage is very warm.

    out of 10

    We picked Baytree Cottage because we wanted somewhere small and quiet for a peaceful weekend away. It was the perfect choice. Just right for 2 people who wanted to not do very much! Local pub was lovely, just remember to take a torch if you'll be walking home in the dark. Would happily stay again.



    out of 10

    Our second visit and just as good. Good walks, the cottage is excellent for our dog, and a very good pub just 2 minutes away. Pity that the little shop has gone but we had warning and came well supplied. Always warm and welcoming, and always immaculate on arrival.
