“A wonderful home from home”
Reviewed April 17, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We have now stayed at this wonderful converted barn over Christmas and Easter and each time had a great experience. The conversion has been done to a very high standard throughout and everthing has been thought of, including the recent addition of wi fi. The only bad point is that it makes our rooms feel small when we get home!!

In additional to the facilities offered by the barn itself, it is beautifully situated with views over the the River Stour Estuary. There are some lovely local walks and wildlife to be enjoyed.

Although there is no pub or restaurant within walking distance they are just a short drive away - we particularly enjoyed the Lucca restaurant in Manningtree and the Essex Rose tea room in Dedham.

We very much hope to return again later this year.
