Fantastic weekend in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to a very warm welcome and the Cottage was immaculate, beautiful and exceptionally clean and homely! We couldn't have picked a better location for a much needed get away from reality, the music room was a fantastic escape and boasted a great sound system. The Table Tennis room was a constant source of fun and laughter with endless games of round the clock(table). We were able to switch off and unwind with beautiful surroundings and at night we were able to celebrate my birthday in style without the fear of neighbours complaining about noise or music etc... The description of this cottage is spot on and the owners are a lovely couple who open their home without limitations to their guests. It was not easy to get food delivery but that was to be expected in such a rural place, if you want a great steak try Milsoms restaurant. All that stayed with me would recommend this cottage to friends and family and we will return! We all agreed the only thing that could have topped this off for us all would have been a hot tub but I reckon that's just been greedy! ;-)

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5
It's the most memorable country house so far, homely, clean, spacious (inside and out), enjoyed by all parties (baby, toddler, young children, young and matured adults)!
Kids thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor space, running along the beautifully lined cherry trees, football, chasing rabbits, table tennis hut, BBQ, alfresco dining, just awesome!
Bedrooms are well presented and equipped. Everywhere is clean and well maintained. The only thing I would whinge about is there's no dishwasher, or even a dish drying rack by the sink.
All else is perfect, highly recommended, and would return again!

Wonderful last-minute weekend for extended family

  • 5 of 5
First of all, I'd definitely recommend this property. In the end we ended up being a group of 8 adults and 4 children (9m, 18m, 6y, 8y) and I booked this two nights before we travelled, on a Bank holiday weekend too. The owners were very quick to respond to our requests and were very accommodating and helpful (including sending back jackets and chargers that were left behind! Really appreciate it!).

The house is beautifully maintained, and the pictures and descriptions are a true reflection of the property. As we were a family group, the fact that two rooms were adjoining weren't an issue. We brought a spare air mattress with us, and could have used it in the study. The owners provided a travel cot and a high chair too, so it meant we had two less things to fit into our car. :-) The bedrooms were of a good size: the travel cot could have fitted in 3 of the 4 bedrooms, so it was flexible how we organised sleeping arrangements for 3 families, a couple and a single person.

The house is very well equipped, and the outside space was fantastic for the children and adults alike to run around. The patio area with the BBQ was great too. Two things I'd recommend though: a proper drying rack for the washing up and if possible a dishwasher. There were small fridges and a small freezer. We only used one of the fridges so if space was a issue. I'd also recommend black-out blinds or curtains. The house is bright and in the summer months it gets bright so early and dark so late (more of an issue getting the little ones to sleep at 7-8pm). There is a huge CD and DVD collection in the study, which was great.

Location-wise, we had a little bit of a problem finding the property and drove up and down Harwich Rd. I'd recommend asking for geo coordinates or look it up on Street View beforehand, or call the owners when you arrive in Ardleigh (which is what we did).

We went to Manningtree for an afternoon, which was nice, but I wouldn't recommend The Crown. Not very good service, and the waiters were swearing in the background while we ate. Food wasn't great either. We also had lunch at West Mersea Oyster Bar, and that was really good. We were lucky as we enjoyed eating outside, and it rained heavily not long after we left.

Overall, we all had such a fantastic time and definitely look forward to the next one! A very big thank you for making this possible.

A home from home

  • 5 of 5
We booked this country house for my mums 60th birthday. We were looking for a comfortable house where the whole family could relax and the kids could play, and we were not disapointed.
The house is beautiful and was kitted out with all the amenities you could possibly need including the use of all of Nigel and Amandas own cooking facilities and fully stocked cupboards. The grounds are huge and were great for kids and adults to have a good kick a bout, play games or just go for a walk. The veranda was a great area to have a bbq and to have breakfast in the morning and made it a really nice place to sit and relax in the sun.
Nigel and Amanda were very welcoming and helpful through out our stay and were a pleasure to do deal with. We will certainly consider booking another stay at the house in the future and will be recommending our friends and family book a stay with them too.
Thank you again Nigel and Amanda from all of us and we hope to see you again soon.

Wonderful 'home from home' luxury weekend retreat

Wonderful 'home from home' luxury weekend retreat
  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful weekend celebrating my 70th birthday with my family. The house was spotlessly clean and very welcoming with plenty of space for 8 of us. The kitchen had every utensil or equipment necessary - even a food processor and a blender! We enjoyed a big BBQ lunch outside, eating on the well finished verandah and looking out into the lovely gardens and cherry orchard - all in all It's a prefect house for any occasion. We will definitely be returning again. Thank you Nigel & Amanda for your help and for making this special birthday such a success.

Beautiful stay at Cherrytree Farm

  • 5 of 5
We had booked the long weekend away for my mums 60th birthday as a family and I am very glad we chose Cherrytree Farm for our stay. The home is so lovely you could not ask for anything else as it had absolutely everything you needed and we felt at home there cooking in the kitchen, having bbq on the veranda while enjoying the absolutely stunning grounds which are huge. The kids thoroughly enjoyed running round, riding their bikes and playing football, while the added bonus of a table tennis room was enjoyed by all. Nigel and Amanda are so lovely and welcoming I cannot thank them enough for all that they did. I would highly recommend Cherrytree Farm and am hoping we will come back again soon.
