    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.

    Jill was a wonderful host and extremely helpful! The cottage itself was lovely, spacious and with nothing to want for! We had a bbq in the garden, used the hot tub and swimming pool and the games room. Can’t recommend this place enough and we’re looking forward to coming back!

    We had a wonderful time and Jill was fab with the booking and very accommodating. Only a couple of comments to make - there are A LOT of insects flying around and we got bitten numerous times, perhaps might be worth spraying the outside area and inside the house with something to keep them at bay. House had a lot of flies and insects too. At one point Jill came in from back garden door to say hello and remind us about leaving times but without knocking or warning that she was about to enter. I would have expected her to knock on front door or at least shout out she was arriving unannounced. She also brought her dog with her, which again I wouldnt have expected, as she doesnt know if anyone in the house has issues with pets, there were a couple of us that did have an issue. The outside games room needs to be cleaned, there were a lot of cobwebs everywhere and the place looked quite dirty. Other than that we had an awesome time - it was truely relaxing and the place had all the amenities you could ask for.

    Lovely cottage close to where Constable painted the 'Hay Wain'. Comfortably housed our 6 (with a twin room spare) . Two rooms are en suite with shared bathroom for the rest. Dog friendly secured back garden which finds the Hot Tub and outbuilding games room. The Hosts live next door and are super helpful. minor point - Nothing has been left available to clear up any spills - no mops or brooms etc. but you do have access to washing machine dryer and ironing board etc - paid a lot of money for just a weekend hence VFM is lower

    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.
