We had a lovely couple of days here. Great self contained garden. Everything we needed in annex. Peacock strutted across front lawn when we were loading up to go - a nice farewell!!
We made this our home, for 3 weeks, whilst our new property was being built. The cottage was warm and well equipped for our needs.
The downstairs ceilings are low, but this added to the quaintness of the property. We made use of the local Community Shop and the railway station in Wrabness. Although, we know the area well, we discovered new footpaths in the locality. The owners made us feel very welcome, with flowers and a lovely card. There was ample safe parking on site for both of our cars.
Thank you so much for your kind comments. We were very pleased to have you to stay. We wish you both lots of happiness in your new home.
Best Wishes to you both.
Quaint but comfortable. You might need some head protection.
Comfortable bed, well equipped and clean.

A very old quaint cottage in the Essex countryside
This cottage is very old and was built during the time when humans were very short. I am over 6 foot and my wife is just under 6 ft. The lounge area is very comfortable and roomy and we spent most of our time there. The bedroom is upstairs and again was very comfortable and all that you would need. The stairs up to the bedroom are quite steep. However, the entrance way, the kitchen, and the bathroom are very low and we bumped our heads on the large wood rafters many times. It is impossible for a man of my size to take a shower - and I had my first bath in more than 20 years. My wife and I had to walk around bent over all the time in the kitchen and bathroom. The cottage should note that these rooms are very low with some sort of height limits for future guests. The kitchen equipment was very basic and quite old with limited, if any, information. Unlike the majority of VRBO owners, there were no "extras" provided (milk, coffee etc.) for our arrival. The owners did kindly allow us to check in quite early as we had just arrived from the States. The location is great - very close to Harwich and just a short drive to "Constable Country". The local walks were also excellent.
Thank you for your comments. It is always helpful to receive feedback so we can make appropriate changes and to hear what our guests have enjoyed.
We do note in the information about our cottage in our listing that some ceilings and doorways are low but we will update this to make this information clearer to future guests. Many guests have found that this adds to the character of the cottage and haven't found it inconvenient. I'm sorry you couldn't find information about appliances in the kitchen. Instructions for using the appliances are located in the guest welcome box in the lounge. We would happily have pointed these out to you if asked. Tea, coffee and sugar are always provided for guests to use. We have found in the past that guests prefer to provide their own milk as it's not always possible to know which milk they prefer. This is something we can look at providing though and will ask guests if it would be useful for them to have. Kind Regards, Rachael
