About the property

Gate Keepers Cottages - a cottage that sleeps 10 guests in 5 bedrooms

Family gatherings and getaways can be enjoyed in two lovely cottages positioned just a few minutes' walk from each other. Nestled within a stunning country estate, with long meandering trails and endless fields to explore.

Both cottages are prettily furnished, themed in their own colour and with lots of character and style. The quaint architecture and wealth of beams add to the charm.

Inside the rooms are comfortable and very well equipped to allow you to while away the hours and make the most of stunning view across the estates' Arboretum.

The cottages and the estate are positioned on the outskirts of the most beautiful and picturesque village of Finchingfield. The backdrop is so spectacular that is often used in films and photo shoots - it is picture perfect with a stream, duck pond and surrounded by period cottages and renowned pub and deli. Gate Keeper Cottages are the ideal base to explore this lovely rural countryside.

Tucked away in the Essex countryside Gatekeepers Cottages are on the edge of Spains Hall Estate where there are wonderful walks and beautiful gardens to explore. Located just outside the village of Finchingfield which is considered the prettiest village in Essex with its pastel cottages on the village green, a stream that meanders through the middle, ducks and a couple of village pubs. Cambridge with its spectacular architecture is an easy drive and the roman garrison town of Colchester with museum and popular zoo is also nearby.
