    Beautiful place - you feel a million miles away from everything - run by a lovely couple. You have everything you could need plus more!

    The cottage is in a peaceful location in the Colne Valley. it is easy to get to a wide variety of places, including Constable Country and Maldon. Heybridge Basin gives access to the Chelmer and Blackwater canal, and there are two pubs and an excellent tearoom.

    I really don't like leaving 10/10 feedback but this amazing retreat deserves nothing less. Sally, the host; showed us which was what and where, sent us a text in the evening to ask if all was ok and did we need anything, which we didn't, and didn't see her until the end of our holiday. Everything is modern, clean and fresh. Everything we needed, and some we didn't, was provided. Awsome welcome pack. Mini toiletries. Towels for the sun loungers. Hot tub for 4 even though there is only 2 of us. The view, beautiful nature. I could go on for ever, it's a marvelous accommodation. There is no wifi, so if you're one of the sad people who have no life, then this is not for you. As for us, it was brilliant without wifi !!!!!!!

    We had a great holiday, and have already booked the same cottage for a week in August.

    A lovely little purpose-built building within the grounds of the owners property but secluded and private feeling. It's clean, tidy and well-equipped. We were very fortunate to stay over the warm & sunny Easter weekend this year, and the hot tub got plenty of use! The property would benefit from a shaded area outside as it's a real sun-trap on hot days. Overall a very good place to stay and we would happily use again.

    We had a very relaxing week at this cottage. The wood burner is lovely for chilly evenings. Lots of interesting places to visit nearby and beautiful scenery to walk in. Highly recommended.

    A wonderful little corner of the world. The hot tub was outstanding, it was warm and bluetoothed to your phone for music. The Log Burner was lovely. There was a great welcome pack and the owners were friendly and welcoming.

    We absolutely enjoyed every moment of our welkend. Very clean and private place. I would definitely recommend if you want a relaxing weekend away from noise and stress!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage, it was beautifully decorated and extremely clean. The log fire and hot tub were excellent and really made the cottage cosy and inviting. The views from the cottage are lovely made the setting private. The welcome pack made our stay that little bit more special and as we arrived on my birthday it made it that bit more amazing. It was a fab base for us to visit the nearby Colchester Zoo (definitely worth a visit too) Lovely hosts, excellent setting. If you want a self catering, relaxing stay, away from the outside world. this is the cottage for you.

    Really enjoyed our stay in Toad Cottage. The owner has made a great deal of effort in making the cottage an enjoyable place to stay. The views were beautiful and even better than shown on the web site. The owner was very welcoming upon our arrival and was also keen to gain our feed back when we left. Hadn't visited Essex before and really enjoyed exploring the area. Would recommend a visit to Toad Cottage.

    Cottage was amazing! It very peaceful and relaxing. The Hot Tub was a massive plus! It was lovely to spend the evening in the hot tub looking over the fields and hearing the wild life. The hosts were great, thought of every little extra to make your stay better and stress free. Would defiantly return and recommend to family and friends. One of our best stays so far!

    Me and my partner had a lovely couple of days at the cottage. It's a lovely comfortable modern cottage with brilliant countryside views in a peaceful setting. We went to a number of local pubs and restaurants for food and they were all amazing quality. We would definately visit again!
