  • "We had a lovely time at Tuffon Hall and it was perfect for what we wanted."

    It was made even better by the vineyard tour and tasting expertly led by Liz. The wine was delicious, we particularly love the slightly pink fizz and the Baccus white. We found the property quirky and liked the antique look however some of the party felt the property was a bit tired as there were broken chairs, soggy sofas, frying pans that looked unusable, lack of microwave bowls etc. It didn’t feel luxury but it was the perfect size for a party of 10 and it felt warm and welcoming with a lovely outlook and surroundings so we were more than happy.

    Hi Janie, we are delighted to hear that you all really enjoyed your stay and that the wine tasting was fun! Thank you for you feedback . We will certainly look to action the points you raised and appreciate you drawing our attention to them. Wishing you all a wonderful Easter and hope that we see you back here again soon. With very best wishes, the team at Tuffon Hall. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful property in lovely Essex countryside."

    Perfect for a family Christmas gathering - really well appointed rooms, fab for socialising or quiet time. Fireplace in lounge, cosy snug, great size kitchen, awesome dining room, fabulous sweeping stairs. Exactly what we hoped for. Could do with a few more kitchen items to help cater for 12 people making merry especially over Christmas when pans, cutlery etc are needed in abundance; but otherwise top notch.

    Happy New Year Claire! We are delighted to hear that you have thoroughly enjoyed your stay here at Tuffon Hall over Christmas. Thank you for your feedback with respect to the equipment in the kitchen, that is extremely useful to hear and we will make sure your comments are addressed.Wishing you a fabulous 2022 and we hope to see you all here again one day. Best wishes the team at Tuffon Hall. Property Owner

  • "We had a great time."

    We were 3 families and enjoyed a lot. Kitchen was great and we'll equipped and large enough as most of the times we were all in kitchen. Bedrooms were large and comfy. May be one feedback is some lights outside of property would be great, specially in winters as it gets dark there are no lights outside the property. Another small thing was WiFi was not so stable. Angus was really friendly. Gin and Vines were incredible. Overall a great holiday.

  • "We had a brilliant stay at the beautiful Tuffon Hall, which was perfectly set up for our needs and provided a wonderful base for our break."

    It would have been great to have a few more of the basics readily available - things like kitchen roll, surface cleaner etc., - but other than that, everything was well set up and easy to navigate.

    Hi Emily We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for leaving such a positive review. We really hope to see you again one day. All the best Tuffon Hall Property Owner

  • "Absolutely perfect setting amongst the vines and a stunning farmhouse."

    Such a nice place to stay with friends. It is very spacious, well maintained and has a lovely grand but cosy feel. There are a couple of niggles. Don’t want to moan but quite useful for the owners to know how to improve. The wifi is very bad. It doesn’t work in wvery room and most of us couldn’t use it. I know it’s nice to be a le to switch your phones off but we brought speakers that connect to wifi so that was a real pain. The dining room light flickers so you can’t have it on. It’s quite a dark room anyway so you can’t eat in there in the evening unless you want to eat in the dark. The kitchen is stocked in quite an odd way. 12 egg cups but then no sharp knives. It has a weird mix of things and not enough of what you need e.g. good knives and pans. Not sure if it’s possible but it would be lovely if some of the plants were trimmed bacl that block the pond. When sitting outside it would be lovely to be able to look at the pond but you can’t see it. The TV doesn’t work, it might be because of the wifi issue but we couldn’t get freeview to work which was a shame. The place really is lovely but if those things were fixed it would be perfect!

    Hi Katie Thank you for your review and really useful comments. We are addressing all your points and have found it very helpful so we can improve for future bookings. It was lovely to meet you all. With very best wishes, the team at Tuffon Hall Property Owner

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday."

    Tuffon Hall is a beautiful place in a beautiful location. My family and I loved the farmhouse it was very comfortable and homely. The beds, bedding and towels were amazing. Angus was lovely and welcomed us with a bottle of wine, produced on site. Sarah was very helpful and prompt replying to my messages and requests. We would definitely stay here again and definitely use Sykes holidays again.

  • "The property was spacious and bright."

    We stayed over a hot weekend but the house remained breezy inside. The vineyard was beautiful and we loved the private tour. It was great to be able to use the tennis courts. We hope we can come back again soon and would definitely recommend the property for anyone looking for a stay near London but still surrounded by countryside.
