Details

Lee Wick Farm Holiday Cottages offers two cottages:

The Cart Lodge (sleeps up to 10 + 2) has a large entrance hall from which there is a large utility room (washing machine, tumble dryer and clothes drier); leading from the entrance hall is the kitchen, dining room and the large lounge.

The accommodation offers a large downstairs family bedroom (king size double and two single beds) with en suite shower room all with full wheelchair access. On the first floor there are two twin rooms, one double room with en suite and a large gallery with sofa bed. The views over the marshes and Colne / Blackwater estuaries are excellent from the gallery.

Stable Cottage (sleeps 5 + 2) offers kitchen, diner, lounge with wood burner and French doors onto the large patio garden with views over fields to the sea. (Sofa bed provided).

Bedroom one has king size bed with pull out single for family use, plus large en-suite shower room. Bedroom two has either twin single beds or a double on request, also with en suite shower room. There is a double sofa bed in the living area for one or two more guests. The cottage is all on one level and suitable for wheelchair users.

Both cottages are set within a now partly redundant farm yard at the end of a quiet lane, 1.6 miles from the village centre where there are numerous services including three pubs, post office, two shops, three restaurants, hairdressers and a florist to name some.

Bus routes run to both Clacton-on-Sea (5.9 miles) and Colchester (13.7 miles) from here. Colchester, Britain's oldest recorded town offers much for those interested in architecture, history and shopping plus a very good Zoo.

There are pleasant walking and cycling opportunities around the farm, village and nearby countryside. Fishing at our reservoir is included (rod license needed), passes for nearby nature reserves are included, there are superb bird watching opportunities (regular sightings of the once rare Marsh Harrier for example).

The location makes an excellent family base for the many sights of the Essex and Suffolk coastline, countryside and the numerous tourist attractions.
