    “We loved our two weeks at Coleman's Farm Barn.”

    It is located in a beautiful rural location yet with easy access to many adorable villages with lovely pubs and often a local shop or co-op for supplies although all the main supermarkets are in neighbouring towns 20 minutes away. The Barn is spacious and newly renovated so a perfect place to stay and Nell and her family have provided everything you need to get the most out of your stay. We were happy with our long walks in the gorgeous surrounding countryside with our dogs and some days eating ...

We were happy with our long walks in the gorgeous surrounding countryside with our dogs and some days eating out and other days a BBQ in the garden. If you love rural you will love this outstanding rural retreat

The property

Finchingfield 1.7 miles.

Set on the edge of the quiet Essex hamlet of Howe Street, near the picturesque setting of Finchingfield, is this beautiful barn conversion, Colemans Farm Barn.

Offering six guests an idyllic holiday destination in the Essex countryside, Colemans Farm Barn features original beams and flint walls, with character and rustic charm in abundance, blended perfectly with contemporary features.

Be welcomed into the large boot room where you can leave coats, boots and wet gear following country rambles, before entering the spacious living/dining room.

Light the large woodburning stove and get settled on one of the sofas to watch TV or a film, or set up a board game around the table in here, perched before the large patio doors overlooking the garden.

The timber-clad kitchen is bursting with character, boasting a large dining table with bright blue chairs and ample appliances to rustle up delicious dishes, with the helpful additions of a washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher.

Offering a ground-floor sleeping spot is the twin bedroom, whilst the stairs to the first floor bring you two delightful double bedrooms, continuing to showcase the timber beams and neutral décor with plenty of storage.

Freshen up in the contemporary shower room, home to a large walk-in shower enclosure, a bath and heated rail to keep your towel toasty.

Spend time out in the lovely garden, offering a real sun trap, perfect for alfresco dining, sunbathing and soaking up the fresh country air.

Howe Street is bursting with thatched cottages and surrounded by rolling countryside, and lies just under two miles from Finchingfield, a well known picture-perfect village, boasting the nearest shop, pubs, tearooms and restaurants.

Visit this delightful village and explore the various interesting buildings like the windmill and medieval church, with walks to enjoy from the village like one heading over to Great Bardfield, visiting the River Pant and Finchingfield Brook along the way.

Enjoy a day out to Hedingham Castle, home to a well-preserved Norman fortress with plenty of scenic picnic spots and a café, or venture over to Mountfitchet Castle & Norman Village, a reconstructed medieval castle and Norman settlement.

The Colne Valley Railway can take you on a scenic journey on a vintage steam or diesel train, while the Audley End Miniature Railway is perfect for families with smaller children.

Explore the historic buildings around Braintree, before heading to Great Notley Country Park for a fun bike ride along the cycling paths, stopping to let the children play on the large wooden climbing area here!

Within reach of the historic city of Cambridge and the town of Colchester too, Colemans Farm Barn is a wonderful setting for a tranquil break to the Essex countryside.

About the location

FINCHINGFIELD

Braintree 9.3 miles; Cambridge 24.2 miles; Colchester 25.6 miles.

Finchingfield is a textbook example of a traditional English village, settled in the county of Essex in the Braintree district. Winning awards for its picturesque setting, Finchingfield appears on many calendars, chocolate boxes and jigsaws thanks to being home to colour-washed cottages, thatched roofs, a windmill and a medieval church. There are three pubs in the village, along with two tearooms and two restaurants, as well as two antiques shops and a local Post Office and store combined. Visit the 18th century Finchingfield Post Mill and climb up the first two floors to see the inner workings of this classic landmark. Nearby attractions include the Colne Valley Railway offering a journey on a vintage locomotive through picturesque countryside, the Ridgewell Airfield Commemorative Museum, and the delights of Braintree such at Great Notley Country Park and Braintree District Museum. Finchingfield offers a picture-perfect setting for a rural break full of walks and scenery.
