Welcome To Our Selection of Holiday Cottages

In Essex, whatever time of year, and whoever you are with, we have a few suggestions for essentials to take along. Start with something to keep the rain away. You can never really be sure of the weather. An umbrella and a raincoat are a good start!

If you have a DVD player in the cottage, definitely take a few great movies. It's so enjoyable to curl up in the evening and watch a classic film. And then we always make sure we have good supplies with us when we arrive so that we can sit down and have a cup of coffee and perhaps a piece of cake before we start that boring unpacking! We have stayed in many types of cottage, and we've decided we like both traditional and modern - it just depends on where we're going. 

Escape To Essex

If you're looking for a clean, professionally run holiday cottage, then look no further than our selection of the best cottages here. Cottage owners and agencies have increased their standards quite significantly throughout the last decade. 

Meaning that the days of sub-standard amenities, bedding and even heating are left behind in the 20th Century. As far as we know the cottages in Essex are up to scratch but if something is awry please call the owner/agent. 

It may be easy to resolve quickly and without any further inconvenience or confusion.

Cottages For Holidays

Self-catering always makes your holiday more relaxing in Essex. No pressure from the owner to eat meals at specific times, when you are self-catering the food is ready when you want it to be ready. 

And it also gives the freedom of eating out without needing to reorganise any plans in your accomodation. You don't need to tell anyone, just sit down and order! We know many people who consider a holiday cottage as the perfect way to wind down after a busy urban lifestyle - sleep in, take lazy walks through the countryside and take more time over meals. 

For many, however, its a chance to really do something active, from running and mountain biking to swimming and climbing.
