An Absolute Treat!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent four nights at Cherry Trees Farm while attending a family wedding nearby and it was such a treat. The house is stunning and beautifully presented and at the same time so homely and comfortable. We immediately felt very relaxed. Everything we could want and need in a home from home was provided, as well as many other very generous and thoughtful extras. The outside covered seating area is amazing and it was wonderful to spend the evenings sitting outside overlooking the beautiful gardens. We also thoroughly enjoyed exploring the orchard (the plums were delicious) and watching the wild rabbits running around at dusk. The elephant was quite a surprise! 😊. We would definitely love to stay here again ... Thank you Mandy and Nigel for making us feel so very welcome, it truly enhanced what was a wonderful family occasion.

Lovely property in beautiful large grounds.

  • 5 of 5

What a find this place was!Ideally placed to explore the picturesque Stour Valley and the attractive villages of Dedham and E.Bergholt and to visit Flatford Mill.

The accommodation is of a very high standard perfect for a family celebration.

Owners Amanda and Nigel were thoughtful by leaving cupboard basics to get us started ,a chocolate cake and bubbly.Nice touch.

The games room and Cherry Orchard with organic cherries was just the icing on the cake.Children loved it and so good to see them wandering in the grounds freely.Definitely will use again.

Lovely house in spacious grounds

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Cherrytrees farm. The property is modern, well-maintained and clean. It has many excellent features including: a very well-eqiupped kitchen diner, a large verandah overlooking spacious gardens, and a separate building housing a table tennis room.

We particularly liked the nearby village of Dedham and afternoon tea in the Essex Rose. Colchester castle and the adjacent park are well worth a visit. We were pleasantly surprised by Frinton-On-Sea. There are several leisure centres and soft play areas for younger children within easy reach - our favourite was the Kingfisher centre in Sudbury.

Cosy, warm and homely .... A really special place

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to the beautiful Cherry Tree Farm. We settled right back in, our youngest jet lagged child went straight up the stairs, found a bed and was asleep before I made it upstairs with the suitcases! There was tea and coffee and fruit and brioche .... A wonderful breakfast feast that kept us going until we were able to get to the shops a little later in the day . The place was warm and homely, and though we did miss the ripe cherries we were so lucky to have last visit, we still enjoyed our stay a whole heap and would happily visit again when next in the uk .

Gorgeous! Unhesitatingly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

I booked Cherrytrees Farm for a long weekend for a 'family get-together' to celebrate my father-in-law's 85th birthday. Our party comprised of 8 people including 3 couples. The size of house was ideal and in particular, the downstairs felt very spacious. The house is in a beautiful setting and in excellent condition throughout. The weather throughout our stay was lovely so we were able to make full use of the garden and rear terrace, which runs the width of the house. This lovely covered area has an array of quality chairs and tables: perfect for al Fresco dining and we had breakfast outside every morning of our stay! The kitchen is the better equipped than my own kitchen and as we self catered, we didn't want for any gadget, cooking utensil, pan or piece of equipment. The kitchen has a lovely big breakfast table and a useful utility room adjacent to store food as required. The dining room easily accommodated us all and the lounge provided a very cosy space for us to chill out in the evenings in front of the woodburning stove. The bedrooms were all very different and ours was a double with a most comfortable bed. The bathroom was modern, clean and comes equipped with high quality toiletries. As other reviewers have pointed out, one of the bedrooms is accessed through another, but that did not not bother us at all. The whole feel of the place was 'home from home' - if only my own home was as gorgeous and well maintained!! We all loved it and will be booking again! Thank you to Amanda and Nigel for such friendly and attentive service. We especially loved the gorgeous welcome biscuits and flexibility over check in and check out times.
