About Nicholas Percival

My family have been farming at Wakes Hall for 100 years in the beautiful Colne Valley of North Essex. We have seen over the last 100 years tremendous changes in farming operations. During these dramatic changes farmers have looked at diversification projects, this is where the story begins with our Luxury Holiday Lodges.

Nicholas Percival purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Nicholas Percival chose Essex

We have a secret ancient meadow set within the heart of the farm surrounded by woodland and undulating countryside where heavy horses, cattle and sheep would have grazed. The five purpose built Holiday Lodges are situated in the tranquil location which is approached by a private driveway through meadow land and woodland. Each of the Lodges is in the New England style offering high standard of sustainability and energy saving features.

As part of our landscaping and infrastructure we have planted over 3,000 trees, created a lake, installed solar panels to assist in the supply of electricity and reinstated a hydraulic ram built in 1886 to help supply fresh water to the lake. Guests can enjoy private walks to take in the abundant wildlife.

What makes this cottage unique

At the end of the day our objective is simple, to create a place to stay as comfortable if not more comfortable than being at home, all in a peaceful and tranquil environment.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just gets better each time! Still get the wow-factor every time we arrive. The lodges are absolutely amazing, and for the first time I met the owner this visit. He was so friendly, helpful and wanted to hear any suggestions I had for improving these wonderful lodges.

We wanted a retreat weekend with some luxury.

  • 5 of 5

Far exceeded our expectations. Beautiful accomodation, perfect tranquility, exactly what we wanted and a whole lot more. Cannot wait to go back, and next time it will be for a bit longer. Tiny minor complaint, the booking system online needs improving. But that didn't affect our stay. It rained the whole time and we were still over the moon with the short break. Cant speak highly enough of our experience.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay - the lodges were certainly designed to make the most of the tranquil surroundings, despite the English weather! We are constantly seeking to improve our service to customers and although we are currently unable to offer online booking via HomeAway, this can be done through our own website - although many customers prefer to contact us direct for that personal touch! We hope you will visit us again in the not too distant future.

Warm and comfortable accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We were privileged to be the first guests to experience the delights of staying at Wakes Hall Lodges. This stunning new development in North Essex is ideally located to explore the local area and venture into Suffolk.

We were welcomed with a hamper which even contained some of my favourite chocolate! The Lodge was very warm and comfortable, with large walk in bathroom containing huge shower and free standing bath, a very comfortable queen sized bed in the tastefully furnished bedroom and luxurious furnishings in the open plan kitchen/living/dining area.

The highlight of our stay was lying back in the wonderfully warm hot tub and viewing the star lit sky, a very pleasant experience even in November!

The Lodges are built in a very peaceful meadow and the surroundings make this a very relaxing location where you can really chill out and recharge your batteries, I am sure we will be returning for some more rest and relaxation
