“Like visiting an old friend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2011

We stayed at Farm Cottage for just one night. However, with us arriving by ferry in Harwich early in the morning, Andy (who runs the place) kindly offered that we could have breakfast and then spend the entire day at the cottage preceding our over-night stay. When arriving in the morning, we immediately felt at home and it was much more like meeting a good old friend than staying at a B&B. Amazing how it felt immediately like being at home.

Andy is the most helpful person imaginable, he cooks great dinners and is an infinite source of information. The place itself is clean, with a beautiful garden and some nice hikes in the area. Definitely to be recommended for both short and long-term stays.

We stayed one night prior to leaving on the ferry for Holland and was met by a wonderful, home-cooked vegetarian dinner. Breakfast was equally fine and then the taxi arrived to take us to the port. On our return, 10 days later, a taxi collected us from the port and took us to Farm Cottage where we had a delicious breakfast and, whilst we were eating, Andy washed our car, which he had looked after whilst we were away and it had collected much dust due to the very fine weather. I am not sure a very special relative would have gone that far!! Thank you so much for your first-class treatment.

I needed a place to stay for one night before catching the ferry to holland early in the morning. I'm glad I found this cottage. Communication was good and the host was very kind and helpful. I hope to visit soon again.

This year (2010), I made a little backpack tour through the United Kingdom, Scotland and Germany. On our way back from Scotland to the Netherlands we had to stay in Harwich for one night, since the Stena Line ferry leaves at 9.00 am from Harwich port.

We were very happy to find Farm Cottage on the internet, because we thought it to be very difficult to find an affordable hostel or hotel next to the port. Well, our choice couldn't had been any better!

First of all, Andy (the owner) got us a taxi to collect us from the railway station London Wrabness at night, FOR FREE! After a 15 minutes drive we arrived at Farm Cottage. We got a very warm welcome, with a nice cup of English tea. Andy brought our luggage to our room upstairs and told us to 'feel at home' and to do whatever we liked...

We had a very nice and cosy evening in the living room, together with two other guys who stayed there as well. Andy is a very kind host, who is really interested in you as a person and almost feels like a friend. Nevertheless he still treats you as his guest and he would do almost anything to comfort you!

Our room was very nice and clean, pretty big with our own televsion and a nice double bed. Besides that we could use the living room anytime and could take books to read and choose from a very big DVD collection with dozens of great movies. There is also a very nice and modern bathroom, with shower, bathtub and two toilets. Everything in great condition and very clean, just as our room.

The next morning, we had to get up at 6.30 am to get dressed and have breakfast at 7.00. Andy was already out of bed and cooked us scrambled eggs and made toasts etc. You can choose many things and he'll cook it for while you're waiting, where do you still get such fresh and home made food nowadays?

At 7.30 we had to leave to the port, to catch our ferry on time. But we didn't have to call a taxi or go by bus, cause Andy brought us himself in his little white Porsche 944! How great is that?

So, we just had a really fantastic stay at Farm Cottage! The rooms are big and clean, the bathroom is perfect, the food is awesome and andy is the best host you'll ever get! We can only recommend Farm Cottage to anyone, cause it's damn cheap too!

If you want to know what's life is all about take your chance and spent more than just one night at this place (all the others don't). It is emotional, fascinating, strange, crazy, but it is great. Woodstock was a dream on a short weekend, but this place is real every day!
Many thanks to all of you!

Farm Cottage B&B is a very homely place with extraordinary service by Andy and his team.
There is no problem which could not be solved.
