About Margaret Binns
I have lived in Essex all my life and in Colchester with my family for just over 2 years. We have recently refurbished The Nook and are very proud of the results and our first guests said "We would like to live here!"
Margaret Binns purchased this House in 2010
Why Margaret Binns chose Colchester
We love living in Colchester, having a vibrant, bustling town on our doorstep, yet our neighbourhood is peaceful and quiet. We have good access to local countryside such as Mersea Island and Dedham. Good road links to go further field and London is 45 minutes away.
Great accommodation in quiet residential area in Colchester
Owners are lovely people who go out of their way to make you feel welcome in their cozy an comfortable accommodation. Highly recommended!
The Nook is very clean and well appointed. Location is good - just a brisk 20 minute walk into town. Parking was good and it was easy to drive out of town from there.
However it was much smaller than we expected with no dining space, just a fold away table and 4 chairs which was far too big to open frequently. We actually pulled the sofa away from the window and set the table up in there. A small table and 2 chairs would make a better permanent feature there. And the small TV was much easier to watch with the sofa closer to it.
The bathroom is downstairs, off the lounge. It is tiny and we found we had to have the door open to dry ourselves easily. Unfortunately, while we were there, the door wouldn't stay closed but I'm sure that has been rectified.
The bedroom is small but adequatealthough we felt that a built in cupboard would be better than vintage suitcases for storage.
The Nook is a comfortable little holiday home. In a quite location on edge of town.
We really enjoyed our stay at The Nook. Comfortable, well equipped, nicely decorated and furnished throughout. Would definately recommend.
Neat and Tidy Bolthole, in great Location
This was a nice tidy, smartly decorated annexe property. The friendly owners were very welcoming, and milk and biscuits were provided upon arrival. It was a lovely looking property, but there was a little room for improvement. I left my suggestions for improvement with the owners in their guest book, and would hope that they note them to improve their business and make their cottage more appealing for future guests. If they made the improvements I suggested, it would definitely be a place that I could return to.
Such a lovely little place to stay, so cosy and snug. 5* defo
