  • "Valley View provided superb accommodation for our family celebration."

    Beautifully clean and so well equipped. Lovely, friendly, helpful owners who very thoughtfully arranged equipment for the little ones and throws and treats for the dog; as well as brownies for the grownups! Hot tub was lovely to sit and watch the stars from or to enjoy the country views. Great to have a changing room and towels close by. We hope to return in the summer. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. Your comments are appreciated. We are so pleased you had such a lovely time and we hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful property to stay in."

    The owners have given much care and thought into providing a comfortable and enjoyable home for their guests. It is spacious, stylish and clean. Wonderful views from the back garden, a hot tub to relax in and a choice of garden furniture to sit on, weather permitting. I would happily recommend Valley View to others.

    Thank you so much for leaving such great feedback. We really appreciate it and are so pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay. We hope you will book again. Thank you Property Owner

  • "Absolutely loved our stay at valley view."

    The house was lovely and clean and at a high standard throughout. Every detail has been thought of to make our stay with young children and two dogs as homely as possible, all the extra details were very thoughtful. We really enjoyed the cakes and the hot tub was the finishing touch along with a beautiful garden and views. My only comment would be the sofa was quite low and soft however it was comfortable enough and wouldn't put us off we would definitely return. We did have to watch the dogs in the garden as there was grapes on a vine at their height. Overall we would definitely recommend and would love to come back. Thank you for a lovely family holiday.

    Thank you for taking time to leave feedback. We are so pleased you had such a lovely stay and we hope you will visit again. Thanks also for your comments on the grapevine. We will make sure that low hanging bunches are removed in the future, especially if dogs are staying so thanks for bringing that to our attention. Property Owner

  • "The house is beautifully presented and very well maintained."

    The kitchen is well equipped- the only thing we missed were weighing scales. The garden is beautiful with excellent views and plenty of space with lots of seating options. The hot tub is great and the changing room is a nice touch. We enjoyed using the BBQ. The location is great but a bit more rural than we realised. There is a local shop and pub but these require driving to or cutting through footpaths on fields to access (this is not a criticism but was not apparent from the property description). Beds were comfortable and plenty of towels which was great especially with the hot tub. Only addition which would be nice would be a hairdryer. In summary it was a great location for our family holiday - there were 8 of us ranging from age 9 - 85. Plenty of space to relax and enjoy spending time together in between days out in the lovely Essex countryside. Thank you!

    Thank you very much for your constructive feedback. We will certainly add scales and a hairdryer for future guests. We are so glad your family had lovely time and thanks again for your comments. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Valley View."

    The hot tub was a real hit! The house was generally well equipped and the owners were generous and kind. A comfortable seat for an older person would have been a great addition in the sitting room. Also a softer pillow or two. New bulb needed in sitting room lamp for next visitors. The house was wonderfully quiet and we enjoyed the countryside views and the wildlife in the garden.

    Thank you for your feedback. We will take on board your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner
