About Spains Hall
Spains Hall Estate is a family run business and our holiday cottages have been lovingly renovated to give them a new lease of life.
Spains Hall purchased this Cottage in 1949
Why Spains Hall chose Braintree District
The Lodges have been part of the Estate since they were built - their heritage is our heritage! The Ruggles-Brise family have lived at Spains Hall since 1768, only the 3rd family to live here since 1086.

Charming cottage, well maintained, very clean and fully equipped.
Only stayed a couple of days (wish it could have been longer) but very impressed. It met all our needs and more. Beautiful setting and very close to the picturesque village of Finchingfield.
Thank you very much for your kind words. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and if you do wish to come back we would love to see you! Archie & Anna
Great stay. Lovely surroundings.
Great spot. Lovely views all round. Great nights sleep. Very warm and homely.
Thank you very much for your kind words. The views from the cottages are stunning and it's always nice to know that you've enjoyed your stay. Please do come again soon! Archie & Anna
Attention to detail 1st rate! Customer care with the sincerity.
We have stayed at each lodge and have been thoroughly pleased with every visit. The peaceful and quiet serenity is a dose of medicine that is good for all of us, and you will find it here.The attention to detail and levels of cleanliness will bring us back time again. We had the opportunity to meet the charming Ann who puts her heart into preparing each lodge before your visit. Thank you Archie for helping me with the arrangements for my remembrance wreath. I hate to rush time, but we are looking forward to our return trip.
Thanks for coming to stay with us once again, it is always a pleasure to welcome you to our little corner of Essex! We shall look forward to seeing you again next year. We have passed your lovely comments on to Ann, she is delighted that you took the time to appreciate her hard work. There is a great deal of pride and care put into getting everything just right. Best wishes, Archie & Anna
Very quiet location but still within easy striking distance to London
The house we stayed in was the South Lodge which is well equipped and suitable for 2 couples or a family of 4. London is a 20 minute drive to the station in Braintree and then an hour by train to Liverpool Street Station. Also Cambridge is nearby as well as any number of quaint villages and places of interest.
Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted you chose to stay with us, and that you obviously managed to make the most of our location. We are indeed close to many of the major tourist centres (including London and Cambridge), as well as being set in some extremely attractive countryside. Please do visit again next time you are in the UK. Best wishes, Anna & Archie
Tranquil home away from home
We stayed at Crest Lodge for 10 days and absolutely loved it. It was clean, spacious and very comfortable. Perfect for our family of four. Lots of very beautiful country walks and close to the picturesque village of Finchingfield.
Thank you so much for such a brilliant review. It was our pleasure to welcoem you to the lodge and hope that the rest of your holiday was equally enjoyable! Archie & Anna
