Perfect HomeAway. I would recommend it anytime.

We selected Cherry Trees Farm from the HomeAway website based on the size and country style feel that the property offered. Upon arival we found that the property was exactly what we expected it to be. All the furniture and the home in general was in spick and span condition and this was the case both internally and externally. All the rooms came furnished with quality in mind throughout. There was lots of space for the kids to have fun and this was the main thing that made this home so special for us. There was also a great outdoor patio area to the rear of the property which made the perfect setting for a nice relaxing evening and this was further complimented with an outdoor games room which was great for getting competitive with a few rounds of table tennis.
The parking facilities were great at the front and there were many local shops and filling stations close by within 1 mile either way which was great.
All in all we had a great time at Cherry Trees Farm. We had a magical experience; one we'll cherrish for a lifetime.
Owner's Response: Many thanks for your lovely review, we are so pleased to hear that you all had a great birthday weekend. Thanks also for the lovely cakes, delicious!
We hope yo see you again.

A real home from home.

We had a fabulous Christmas spent with family at Cherry Trees. It felt so homely from the minute we stepped through the door. We were greeted by Amanda and Nigel who we felt we had come to know quite well from the emails and communication we had had prior to our arrival. We felt like we were coming to stay with friends. We arrived after 9 pm on a wet winter night, jet lagged from our long flight and drive. Amanda had even shopped for provisions of milk, bread, ham cheese and much more and even mince pies so we would have something to get us though and breakfast next day.
The house was warm and clean and beautifully decorated for Christmas.It actually took us several days discovering all the little decorations and delightful special touches that were every where in the house.
We entertained in the house as if were our own .Even cooking Christmas dinner. Every thing that we could have wanted or needed was all there in the well planned kitchen . Even all the little things you keep in your own pantry.
we really only had to bring the turkey!
The cherry orchards and grounds provided somewhere to explore on boxing day morning when fresh air and a walk was needed.
Cherry trees is a beautiful home and a great place to stay even in winter. A cosy wood fire was wonderful treat.
We were surprised how close it was to everything .we we were able to go into Colchester frequently and the main A12 was so close. We also travelled by train into London. easily.
We would love to visit again next time we are in the UK and would love to sit on the veranda n the spring with the cherry trees in flower and share a bottle of wine with Amanda and Nigel.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review, we were so happy to hear that you enjoyed an English Christmas and New Year so much at Cherrytrees Farm. We also look forward to your return especially when its warm enough to enjoy a nice glass of wine on the verandah, maybe from our grape vine! but who knows we may even venture over to Western Australia and take up your recommendation of tasting the wine at Margaret River!
Very best wishes to you all
Nigel and Amanda

Loved our stay at Cherry Trees Farm!

Fantastic place for both us and the kids! Out of 11 weeks of travelling this is far and away the best place we have stayed. Spacious, homely, clean, room for the kids to run around (both inside and outside) great for entertaining when friends visited, a well equipped kitchen with additional things added like a variety of teas, biscuits and condiments! The house was also had board games for rainy days and had a table tennis room as well! To top it all off the trees were laden with ripe cherries and our children spent their days in the trees collecting them for us all to enjoy! Would definitely recommend to family and friends and hope to stay here again next time we are in the UK!

Cherry Tree Farm? We enjoyed it tremendously!!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 12-Aug-2013

We spent 2 weeks up in Cherry Tree Farm and enjoyed it tremendously.

Before arrival we had efficient email contact with Nigel and Amanda (owners). Nigel and Amanda were very welcoming and helpful throughout the process of booking. The arrival time could be adapted to our ferry schedule, arriving at Cherry Tree Farm Saturday evening at 21:00 hr and departure early morning 07:00 hr.

We(parents with 5 children aged 7-16) were pleasantly surprised by how homely the house felt, it has been fitted out with all the necessary Utilities that a holiday house should need which made our family stay stress free. The house was clean, well maintained and very homely with plenty of space for our 5 kids and we loved the high speed broadband internet WiFi. We could also appreciate the wide selection of dvd’s, the table tennis set, BBQ and 1200 cherry trees!

While relaxing on the veranda we had no noise disturbance at all due to the road at the front or railway (far) at the back. Actually the veranda is a nice suntrap to chill out, having family breakfast, lunch and dinner.

There is so much to do and to see around Cherry Tree Farm; Colchester, Dedham, the beach, rowing, restaurants, pubs, takeaway food, etc. Visiting London is very convenient and easy. Just a 50 min drive by car to Upminster train station and from Upminster you can take the underground or train using a set of London travelcards. (3 adults + 2 kids for GBP33)

To wrap it up, we will and shall recommend Cherry Tree Farm to our friends and relatives. Nigel and Amanda, once again many thanks for your hospitality and excellent customer service.

Great house for a fun, relaxing weekend

A group of 8 of us had a brilliant long weekend at Cherrytrees Farm.

The house is lovely, big enough for everyone and had everything we needed for the weekend-great to have a fully kitted out kitchen to cook in and a huge selection of dvds to watch! It was also great to have such a wonderful garden to chill out in and to be able to use the barbeque to make the most of the sun.

Nigel and Amanda were very welcoming and helpful throughout the process of booking and during our stay-giving us an in depth tour of the house when we arrived and even quickly responding to a slight shower problem during the weekend.

The location is perfect for exploring the nearby countryside. We were without a car but still managed to take a walk to picturesque Dedham which took about half an hour. If you were staying with children though or wanted to go further you may need a car.

My one negative comment would just be the blinds in the bedrooms-I think we were all in need of catching up on sleep and were after some long lie ins that weekend and struggled because of the light coming in through the windows fairly early. Might not be a problem for some people but I was awake very early! Maybe blackout blinds would be a good idea?

Overall though I would definitely recommend it!
Owner's Response: We are pleased to hear that you all had a fun weekend here, and thank you for your wonderful comments regarding our home.
Sorry that you had a problem with the bedroom venetian blinds, there is a technique to stop daylight coming in and in future we will show guests how to use them. We hope to see you all again.
