Amazing Family Summer !!

I have been meaning to write this review for months. Firstly i would to thank Mr & Mrs Creswell for their hospitality. We had a fantastic summer! My family and I spent 4 relaxing weeks at Vinces Barn during the summer 2013. Our group was made up of 3 adults and 3 children. There was plenty of space and a wonderful garden for the children to play in. The property was well maintained with a complete and equipped kitchen. We absolutely loved the spacious living area that opened out to the garden. We visited Dedham and many neighboring areas. Colchester town was only a 15 minute drive away. A great location for a family break, cant wait to stay again!!
Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your month long stay at our property and always good to receive such good and honest feedback, your children definitely enjoyed the garden and the fantastic summer that we had this year! We look forward to welcoming you back very soon.

The children enjoyed playing in the garden and taking in the fresh air. A home away from home in the perfect setting. Thank you for a great stay and making the holiday unforgetable. We will miss the greenery and the British fresh air and outdoors, upon our return to sunny Dubai.
Not to worry............we will be back soon.

Many thanks and our warmest regards.

Perfect location!

From which to prepare for my daughter's wedding- many apologies for the many disturbances when florist, make-up person, photographer, hairdresser etc arrived at wrong door. Photographs are fantastic and we will certainly acknowledge Vince's Barn on line.

Completely changed our plans and stayed the complete week as an extended family holiday to make the most of the superb accommodation and excellent weather. Do hope that we can return for my mother's 90th birthday in February 2014. She coped well here despite the lack of walk in shower.

Many thanks for the eggs and your help John with unloading the car. We will certainly recocomend Vince's Barn
