  • "A really lovely property - so clean and comfortable throughout."

    We used the Chingford overground, a 10- minute walk away, a few times - so much to do and see in Central London! Lots of interesting places to visit nearby, such as Waltham Abbey, and we had a day trip to Southend - loved the pier!

  • "Barn Hoppitt was an excellent place for a family reunion."

    Being right next door to the forest meant there were plenty of interesting walks to be had. And the fact that it was a short walk to the station enabled us to easily have several days out in London. The house itself was immaculate and just as we had hoped it would be from the photos on the website. It was a great place to come back to after a day out. I would highly recommend staying there and hope we can return again in the future.

  • "The Lodge itself is beautiful."

    Very clean. Decorated beautifully and to a very high standard. They offered all essentials that you need for a self catering holiday. I have a few issues with the place though. Firstly was the flood lighting at the bottom of the garden. Because the grounds are so huge, adequate lighting is a must. I took my two small dogs away with me. One of them is a tiny black dog, who at night I very easily lost as I could not see her. I did speak to the manager about fixing the flood light when we were there, they said they would look into it, but for the entire duration of our stay, the light remained broken. My second issue was the pillows on the beds. They have no structure what so ever. Even my children ended up with bad necks because of the pillows. So if you suffer with a bad neck or back I would advise that you take your own supportive pillows with you. My third is more of a suggestion. Fans or AC units would be a great addition. I made the mistake of keeping the window closed on the first night, and woke up in the middle of the night struggling to breathe as there was no air and stiflingly hot. Upstairs tends to retain the heat, so fans in all of the rooms would massively help comfort levels for guests. My last issue, not the properties fault, just something to be aware of. Because the grounds are situated right outside of Epping Forest, and is quite isolated apart from the Premier Inn next door. Young people must use the area to hang out. On our last night a few cars had parked not far away and were playing very loud music. This went on until after 2am. If it's not too hot and you can close the windows, then this won't be a problem. But on our stay it was very hot and we had no option but to open the windows. All of these are small issues and should not put anyone off from staying as the place is amazing, and I would definitely go back. My family and myself thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Its the most relaxed my youngest child and dogs have ever been. They loved the space to play and chill out. It really is a great place to stay.

  • "A superb lodge, everything catered for - couldn’t ask for anything else."

    Only downside was lighting upstairs a little dim and not a lot of room in the bunk bedroom Would highly recommend this lovely cottage to anyone wishing to stay in this area

  • "Perfect spot for a London get away."

    Close to stations both overground and underground. Lovely Forrest at your doorstep to explore. Everything you need close By

  • "A beautifully decorated and well thought out cottage in a lovely rural setting close to shops and restaurants."

    Only downside is not having an upstairs bathroom and feel the property is slightly overpriced because of this. The cottage was well equipped in the kitchen but could do with more large serving bowls. Would prefer real wine glasses than the plastic ones !

    We're glad you enjoyed your stay. The real wine glasses are found in the cupboard above the kettle. Plastic glasses are also provided as a safety measure for guests wishing to use them outside. With regard to the downstairs bathroom, we do make this clear in our description to give prospective guests the opportunity to decide if this will be a problem for them ahead of booking.

The property

Nestled on a hilltop in Epping Forest, at the border of Essex and London is Barn Hoppitt Lodge.

This spectacular, dog-friendly abode benefits from direct access to the walks woven throughout the forest, close proximity to local amenities including transport links to the centre of London, off-road parking and a beautifully presented living space welcoming up to six guests.

After a fun-filled day, cross the threshold into the fabulous kitchen/diner where you can help rustle up a hearty meal to be enjoyed as a group at the dining table.

Later, unwind on the plush sofas in front of the warmth of the woodburning stove and Smart TV in the sitting room or step outside to the private patio to soak up the last of the sun with a glass of wine in hand.

When the sky darkens, head inside to wash off the day with a soothing soak in the bathroom before travelling to the first floor to catch your rest in one of three bedrooms; choose from a king, a double and a bunk room all fitted with ample storage.

Amble through the gate from the property to the breath-taking Epping Forest which boasts picturesque walking and cycling routes as well as a myriad of other outdoor activities including horse riding, rambling, golf, and orienteering; there's something for everyone!

Next to the lodge is Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge, a Tudor Hunt Stand built in 1543 for King Henry VIII and renovated by order of Queen Elizabeth I as well as The View, Epping Forest’s Visitor Centre and Butler’s Retreat, a Grade II listed Essex Barn.

There is also a Victorian Retreat which now hosts an excellent café serving tea, coffee pastries and hot food to Forest visitors and the Royal Forest public house.

All invite you to enjoy the impressive vista across the centre of the Forest, with its thousands of veteran Oak, Beech, and Hornbeam trees, just as the Tudors did from this spot so long ago.

Chingford Golf Course and Holly Trail Café are just a short walk down the hill, and just a little further the bustling town of Chingford, with a host of shops, restaurants, and an overground station, getting passengers to Liverpool Street in the heart of the City of London, in less than half an hour.

Water sport enthusiasts will be in their element as The Lee Valley white water rafting centre is easily accessible by car.

Surrounding towns including Epping, Buckhurst Hill, Wanstead, and Woodford are all worth visiting as they house high-class restaurants that should be booked in advance.

Hop on the train from Chingford into London to discover a plethora of world-class museums and galleries, endless shows, vibrant nightlife, vast shopping opportunities and tourist attractions for the whole family.

Barn Hoppitt Lodge is an idyllic base for your exploration of the South of England and Epping Forest.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
