Beautiful Home, Beautiful Area

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay at Cherrytrees before our wedding day in colchester. The owners were very considerate in allowing us to stay longer for our wedding day so the bridesmaids (and the Bride!) could get ready. This was extremely helpful and appreciated.

There was everything you needed at the house and much more, and the homemade cake on arrival was very tasty.

It a beautiful location and the house is amazing. Extremely clean and tidy, with plenty of parking and even a fun games room!

The house is large inside and was perfect for relaxing up to our big day with our big family; and there was plenty of room for getting ready and making our wedding day as stress free as possible.

If you want to stay in a classy and gorgeous well looked after home and just completely get away, with the option of many fun attractions and shops merely 10 minutes away this is the perfect place.

Thank you so much for having us!

Beautifull home well equiped and maintained

  • 5 of 5

The owners gave us a great orientation to the home and amenities,, and answered all our questions promtly and professionally. We had a wonderful stay, the layout of the house was excellent and we had some great family gatherings. The barbeque was very useful, and the kitchen was well equiped. I would definitley recommend this Home Away listing toothers and will probably use again myself. We ate out at The Wodden Fender in Ardliegh and The Barn Brasserie in Great Tey. Dedham village was a good explore and the Arts and Crafts is excellent.

Thanks, Nigel and Amanda

Wonderful house beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a weeks break at this very beautiful, comfortable house over the holiday week at Christmas. It has everything you could possibly need to make your stay home from home. The owners were so welcoming and made sure that we knew everything about the property then left us a christmas cake which was delicious and very kind of them. The property is very close to Dedham and we has some amazing meals in the pubs there. Lovely places for walking and enjoying a fantastic break. Thank you very much

The Ultimate Dream Weekend Away!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express how stunning Cherrytrees Farm is! The property is immaculately clean and so incredibly spacious. The outdoor decking is a great place to sit and unwind with beautiful views of the property, and of course, wine in hand. And if you happen to run out of said wine, the owners have bottles of wine you can buy! They really have thought of everything. The location of the property is great and there is absolutely no noise from any traffic and only a short drive to Mannigtree for anything you need. We had planned to eat out one night, but honestly it was so lovely being at the farm we all decided to stay in and relax and listen to vinyl's. ( yes, there is a room full of them at your disposal!) The ping pong room is really a great laugh, our party was all mid/late 30's and we literally spent hours in there each day, it really is a great addition to the property. Nigel & Amanda are truly two of the nicest people you could ever meet, and went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. There are so many 'small touches' they have put into the farm and also welcoming guests that you really will be blown away by their hospitality. The farm is so beautiful that visiting once would just not be enough, I look forward to going back in 2015. The only negative thing I could say is that we had to leave!

Owner's Response: I am unable to know which guest has left such a terrific review because the writers name is missing! But whoever you are please accept a big THANK YOU from both of us for your kind words. Yes indeed, we would love to welcome you back soon, we have had many guests return to us for their holidays,over the years, so we have decided to introduce a loyalty price reduction for returning guests, this will reward existing guests by saving them money, basically the more times you return to us the more you save. Take care, have a wonderful Christmas and hopefully see you soon. Nigel & Amanda

Fantastic weekend in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a very warm welcome and the Cottage was immaculate, beautiful and exceptionally clean and homely! We couldn't have picked a better location for a much needed get away from reality, the music room was a fantastic escape and boasted a great sound system. The Table Tennis room was a constant source of fun and laughter with endless games of round the clock(table). We were able to switch off and unwind with beautiful surroundings and at night we were able to celebrate my birthday in style without the fear of neighbours complaining about noise or music etc... The description of this cottage is spot on and the owners are a lovely couple who open their home without limitations to their guests. It was not easy to get food delivery but that was to be expected in such a rural place, if you want a great steak try Milsoms restaurant. All that stayed with me would recommend this cottage to friends and family and we will return! We all agreed the only thing that could have topped this off for us all would have been a hot tub but I reckon that's just been greedy! ;-)

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

It's the most memorable country house so far, homely, clean, spacious (inside and out), enjoyed by all parties (baby, toddler, young children, young and matured adults)!

Kids thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor space, running along the beautifully lined cherry trees, football, chasing rabbits, table tennis hut, BBQ, alfresco dining, just awesome!

Bedrooms are well presented and equipped. Everywhere is clean and well maintained. The only thing I would whinge about is there's no dishwasher, or even a dish drying rack by the sink.

All else is perfect, highly recommended, and would return again!
