About the property

We have finally after many years finished building our log cabin and are looking forward to sharing it with our guests! It is hidden away in the heart of Essex, set on a 5 acre carp fishing lake with a pontoon over looking the lake...

If guests wish to fish they must ring us in advance to check it is ok with the annual fishing syndicate.

The cabin has 2 main bedrooms downstairs with a third mezzanine bedroom upstairs and can sleep up to 6 guests. It has a bathroom with a shower downstairs and also a sitting room area with a view over the lake. The kitchen is open plan with the sitting room and has everything necessary to enjoy a self catered weekend away.

We are in North Essex, very close to the suffolk border and about half an hour from the coast. We have lots of beautiful walks and cycle routes nearby with many great pubs and restaurants.

Beautiful peaceful log cabin.

The cabin is amazing, clean, comfortable and fully equipped. The area is really peaceful and serene. The hot tub was a real bonus! If you’re looking for a quiet getaway then this is your place.

Beautiful, peaceful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful place to relax. Lovely views over the lake. The log cabin has everything you need and the hot tub is a must. Would of been five stars but I booked this for my partners 40th so he could carb fish but unfortunately the lake and log cabin are separate and this has to be okayed by the lake owner. Float fishing is allowed, which after a mad dash to the fishing shop, our children enjoyed. Owners are helpful and apologetic. Would and have recommended to friends and family just a shame he couldn’t fish for his 40th x

Owner's Response: Sorry about the confusion Lisa, it was a shame the fish were spawning at that time. Glad you had a great time though and thanks for leaving the cabin as you found it!

Breathe taking

  • 5 of 5

So I booked this for my boyfriend birthday as a surprise with his family. We loved it so much was really sad to pack up and leave this morning, We have only just got home and already looked to book for summer (that’s how amazing it was) but no availability. I truly have nothing bad to say was all so perfect. Sitting in the jacuzzi and looking over at the lake and seeing the swans and ducks as the sun is going down was Just incredible.

I will recommend to all my friends and family.

Thank you so much we will be back soon.

Perfect get away, couldn't of asked for anything else

  • 5 of 5

Great location away from everything very secluded just what we were looking for. The facilities were more than accommodating, everything was clean and well kept. The owner Archie was more than helpful and very nice guy.

The cabin itself is in very good condition all wooden on the outside and modern on the inside with an upstairs and so much room for activities (nighthawk)

The three of us had a great time wish we could of stayed longer, but we definitely intend on coming back in the summer as we enjoyed ourselves so much with everything we had and that was around us
