    “The cottage was as described.”

    It had the basic essentials but some 'niggles' This was reflected in the price for the time of year. It was a late booking and it wouldn't have been our first choice. ...

    It had the basic essentials but some 'niggles' This was reflected in the price for the time of year. It was a late booking and it wouldn't have been our first choice. The toilet seat was loose and would slide when in use . Granddaughter nipped her leg in this leaving a bruise. For a three bedroomed cottage there was only one mirror on the stair landing. No dressing tables in any of the bedrooms and one of the bedrooms without a wardrobe, just half a dozen coat hangers on a coat hook. The electricity went off and we were informed that this was because we were 'on a meter' and had used the weekly quota up quicker than expected! I suppose most people tend to eat out when holidaying and very seldom use the cooking facilities to the extent we did, however, due to dietary requirements, this was much needed. So, needless to say halfway though preparation of meal we had to wait until the owners could top up the meter. I have never experienced this ever before and was taken aback at this. On a slightly more positive note: due to asthma and allergies too, I am unable to tolerate fabric and laundry liquids, scented candles and all fragranced items. The owners did ensure that everything was scent free, especially the bedding. This was a huge help.

About the location


Sudbury 9 miles; Cambridge 27 miles; Clacton-on-Sea 37 miles

A pretty, traditional village based in northern Essex. Great Yeldham is the prime spot for a peaceful break, it has delightful buildings as well as a choice of pubs, an Indian restaurant, a village shop, café and an award-winning distillery selling some well-known toffee flavoured vodka. The village is home to 'the Great Oak', an ancient tree which was mentioned in William the Conqueror's Domesday Book published in the 11th century. The River Cohen runs through this pleasant village. This is a really special area of England, with plenty of beautiful cities and town waiting to be discovered. Sudbury and Cambridge both offer wonderful buildings and so much to do. If you fancy a trip to the beach, head to one of England's more popular seaside resorts in Clacton-on-Sea.
