About Carmel Tate

We live locally and often went past the barns when walking our dog. We bought them when they were in a poor state and Jason spent five years working most weekends on them, renovating them and saving all of the materials and features that he could to keep the character of the barns. I was responsible for tea making, supply of lunch, cleaning, fetching and carrying....! In fact, it is a real family business with our children helping with the chickens, gardens and occasional cleaning duty. our children into the the lovely homes that they now are. After spending many happy holidays on farms and beautiful houses in France, Ireland and Wales, we wanted to

Carmel Tate purchased this barn in 2006

Why Carmel Tate chose Maldon

After spending many happy holidays on farms and beautiful houses in France, Ireland and Wales, we wanted to offer high quality accommodation to people who wanted to get away from it all or bring their beloved pets with them to share their holiday, just as we wanted to.

We renovated Jepcrack's over a number of years, working with each barn's unique character and adding luxurious touches to make our guests' stay special.

We opened The Hay Barn to our first guests in October 2011, closely followed by the adjoining Barley Barn in December 2011.

We have just completed The Cart Lodge and are looking forward to welcoming guests to our newest property.

What makes this barn unique

The barns can be rented separately, for 2 people upwards, or you can rent all 3 to provide accommodation for up to 20 people.

Each property has its own character and as the buildings emerged we worked with each one to bring out their unique features and to add special touches to make them interesting, comfortable and homely.

THE HAY BARN has a great downstairs area with breakfast bar, ideal for a get together. With a king sized bedroom and two further double bedrooms, all en-suite, it is great for friends or families.

The BARLEY BARN is very much a home from home, with an open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area. The master bedroom is downstairs and has a king sized bed and sofa bed, making it ideal as a family room. The antique French wardrobe and jacuzzi bath en-suite give that touch of luxury. There is another kind sized bedroom upstairs which is spacious and also has an en-suite with bath and shower above. The third bedroom offers flexibility of either a single, twin or king sized bed and also has a bathroom opposite.

THE CART LODGE is a delight. With vaulted ceilings throughout and walnut and marble floors, it has a French, antique theme. There is an antique king sized bed and a sofa bed for two additional guests. Nothing shabby about this; just pure chic. The ideal romantic retreat.

Simply fantastic

  • 5 out of 5
This was our 5th/6th stay at this fabulous 'holiday home'. The accommodation is superb with everything that you will need during your stay. The location is perfect with numerous things to do/see (including beaches/the coast) within a short drive. It is incredibly quiet and peaceful. The owners, Carmal and Jason, are unbelievably helpful and always available if required. Can't wait till we stay again.

Perfect family holiday house.

  • 5 out of 5
The Hay barn was a perfect holiday house for us. We had young children with us and they loved having the swing set and slide to play on, and they really enjoyed checking if the chickens had layed any eggs. The barn was very clean and tidy, and we had everything we needed. The owners, and the neighbours across the road were always on hand if we needed anything. I would highly recommend this property, and we will hopefully be back in the future.

Fantastic!

We couldn't have been happier. Lovely property, spacious, light and well decorated. Very pleasant and quiet rural location but easy driving access to the local amenities. The owners were most welcoming and helpful throughout. Going again later this year. Can't say fairer than that.

Lovely Barn with Perfectly Restored

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the Hay Barn for 3 nights, visiting the area for a Wedding.

After a 4 hour drive from our home to Essex, the Barn was a welcoming sight in the dull winter afternoon - spotlessly clean, very comfortable and lovely and warm.

The Barn has been lovingly restored, but isn't at all bland - having kept some original features - as the pictures show - and was great to come back to after a wedding and relax in-front of the wood burning stove! Its location means its very peaceful and relaxing - the only noises being from birds - but also only 10-15 minutes from Witham Train Station which can whisk you into Central London in around 45 minutes.

Both Jason and Carmel are excellent hosts - very welcoming and friendly.

I would definitely recommend the Barn - and the area - and would definitely consider the barn as an option when wishing to stay near / around London.

Many thanks!

Perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
We have had a wonderful extended stay at the Hay Barn. The barn was comfortable and cozy and very well equipped. The barn is located perfectly for lots of local activities and easy to get to the main roads for travelling longer distances. We arrived in cold weather and the barn was warm and cozy and we left in hot weather and the summer breezes would blow through the barn. Our children loved running around in the wide open spaces of the garden in front and the fields behind – and spent hours playing in the playground.

Carmel and Jason are wonderful hosts – and did everything to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. With three small children, we also appreciated having a wonderful and reliable babysitter close by – thank you Daena!

We are very sad to be leaving the barn – it has come to feel like home! We cannot speak highly enough of the quality of the accommodation and our fabulous hosts. Thank you so much – we’ve had a wonderful stay!

Christmas break 2011

  • 5 out of 5
It was 6 of us and we had a fantastic time. The house was very clean, very spacious and the fireplace made it very cosy. The outdoor patio is a great idea for having a bbq, something we could not resist although it was very cold outside.
All rooms are new and with nice decor. The master bedroom is roomy and the bathroom is fully equipped. The kitchen facilities are great and all you need. Jason and Carmel (the owners) are very hospitable and welcoming. They even left a Christmas hamper for us and festive decorations all around the house.
Good location with a few pubs within 30min walk, exactly what was needed after a heavy lunch.
We had a great time and will definitely be coming back.
