About Nicholas Percival

My family have been farming at Wakes Hall for 100 years in the beautiful Colne Valley of North Essex. We have seen over the last 100 years tremendous changes in farming operations. During these dramatic changes farmers have looked at diversification projects, this is where the story begins with our Luxury Holiday Lodges.

Nicholas Percival purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Nicholas Percival chose Colchester

We have a secret ancient meadow set within the heart of the farm surrounded by woodland and undulating countryside where heavy horses, cattle and sheep would have grazed. The five purpose built Holiday Lodges are situated in the tranquil location which is approached by a private driveway through meadow land and woodland. Each of the Lodges is in the New England style offering high standard of sustainability and energy saving features.

As part of our landscaping and infrastructure we have planted over 3,000 trees, created a lake, installed solar panels to assist in the supply of electricity and reinstated a hydraulic ram built in 1886 to help supply fresh water to the lake. Guests can enjoy private walks to take in the abundant wildlife.

What makes this cottage unique

At the end of the day our objective is simple, to create a place to stay as comfortable if not more comfortable than being at home, all in a peaceful and tranquil environment.

Private, luxurious accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was spotless with high quality fixtures and fittings. Loved the fact the decking was enclosed so the dog was safe. Plenty of space to walk. Very very private and quiet. Will definitely be returning!

Peace & quiet in 5 star luxury

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend staying in one of these beautiful lodges they really are a great place to get away from it all. The lodges are fitted out to a high standard and the owner provides you with all the basic that you need to start your stay. The lodges are situated in a lovely area with views of a fishing lake and forest and is a great area if you have dogs. Would definitely return for another stay .

Beautiful lodge and surroundings

  • 4 of 5

Initial impressions were that the lodge was spacious, clean and very well equipped. However on closer inspection the cleaning left much to be desired for a five star property. The cleaning was "superficial" with old food and dust underneath the sofas and some glasses and cutlery had not been cleaned properly. One of the sun loungers was broken and again there were piles of old leaves, rubbish and ants underneath. The outdoor trellis gate at the top of the steps was broken and had sharp exposed staples. The high hair we ordered was not in the lodge on arrival and we had to wait until the second day for it (and a spare key) to arrive. When it did arrive it was in a disgusting state. There was old, mouldy food under the seat and the safety straps were filthy. It has obviously been like that for some time.

The welcoming flowers, wine and fruit juice were a lovely touch but more attention to the basics and a better standard of cleaning would have been preferred.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments - we are always keen to receive constructive criticism in order that we can improve our service. We are arranging a meeting with our housekeeping team this week in order to address the comments you made with regard to the cleaning and our maintenance team are attending to the outdoor tasks as a matter of urgency. With regard to the supply of high chair (to be checked and replaced if necessary) and spare key, we do always ask guests to let us know of their requirements in advance in order that we can meet expectations. Kind regards, WHL

Big fly issue

  • 1 of 5

Arrived on Friday the 26th of August. There were flies all over the lodge, dead and alive. Kept landing on any food we prepared. We could not enjoy our stay at all and only stayed one night instead of three as they could not give us a solution to the problem. We have tried to be reasonable and suggested going back on another date when the fly issue has been sorted but they have refused this and or to give us some kind of refund. Awful service for the amount paid. Feel so sorry for my fiancé as this was a Christmas present from him. I had been ill for the last three years and this was our first get away since. Just awful treatment. We are just money in the owners eyes and not humans who have worked hard for this get away.

Owner's Response: I was very sorry to read the review and would respond as follows:- 1. I cannot control matters in the countryside when windows and doors are left open. The only prevention would be to arrange for fine mesh screens to be erected on door and window openings. 2. Unfortunately I could not attend on the Saturday morning at the Lodge as I was working in Stowmarket. I left it in the capable hands of Marianne to meet with the clients to discuss the issues. I was in telephone contact with Marianne. It was quite clear that the guests were upset with the volume of flies. 3. They advised Marianne that they wished to leave on Saturday morning and I therefore asked via Marianne that they write putting forward their issues to me so that I could address it on my return. 4. I received the photographs which are posted, I did not consider given the photographs and information provided to me that there had been an epidemic of flies at the Lodge. I wrote to the guests reiterating my disappointment that they did not stay and offered a discount to them should they wish to come and stay again the future. As we are all aware August has been very warm and I believe that there have been more flies than usual, however we have not had an epidemic. Going forward if we find that there are issues with flies with other guests I believe the only way forward will be to put some mesh screen on the doors and windows to prevent flies from getting into the Lodges.

Pure luxury delightful scenery

  • 5 of 5

If you want luxury in an amazing situ then you just have to stay here. We have stayed in many a lodge with hot tubs as we have a dog and this way we can all have a holiday but I can honestly say nothing has come any where near to this. It was just perfect. Can't wait to come back. Thank you wakes lodges for the thought to detail that has gone into these holiday homes
