Surround yourself in perfect English countryside in a newly built, unique home

I was born the same year my parents bought St Peter's Cottage and have been lucky to spend many idyllic weekends and holidays here. Last year I rebuilt the cottage and that project has recently come to an end. I am now able to offer this unique property for rent and I know that you will be captivated by this peaceful rural setting with so many attractions within easy reach.

Perfect little gettaway
After 3 weeks of travelling to Paris, london and Manchester, visiting family and site seeing, this little cottage was a god send, as soon as we walked in the door we felt like we were really on holiday. Light and airy, comfy beds all the amenities you need and to top it off it's in the beautiful countryside surrounded by woods and fields, 5 mins drive to witham which has a train station with direct route to london which is only 35mins away.. perfect location for visiting our aunt and perfect to recover from our travels and to prepare us for the journey back to Australia. Would definitely recommend many thanks
We had a fantastic stay, The place is lovely and has everything we needed. Our 2 children loved the garden as they had the space to run around in and ride the bikes provided.
The views are amazing and we watched the sun go down a few times, We would highly recommend this property and look forward to returning in the future, Thank you
Peaceful Essex Getaway
Recently enjoyed a 5 night stay at this superb property. We wanted a location close to Colchester to explore the area prior to my daughter starting at the University later this year.
The property provided a comfortable base and was close to Maldon and local transport links to make our trips out as easy as possible.
Our favourite part of the house was the large garden which was fantastic. A really tranquil place to relax with a book and a beer in the late evening sun.
The open plan living area offered fantastic views over the surrounding countryside. The kitchen was equipped with all the basics and we were able to cook full meals each evening without any problem. The bottle of wine and milk in the fridge were appreciated on arrival.
We enjoyed a relaxing stress free break and will hopefully return soon once visits to Colchester Uni are required!
Lovely property in peaceful location
My team had a great stay here and it was both a peaceful and convenient location for their work touring schools across Essex.
Wonderful location surrounded by fields, adjacent to an ancient chapel that is now the studio of renowned stained glass artist, Benjamin Finn. His windows in the chapel are absolutely stunning. The simplicity of the house lets the countryside speak for itself.
It is close to most places of interest in Essex. We think it's ideal. The swing made my daughter very happy. We were too busy to get round to using the table tennis table, but the bikes were fun for the boys.
Bedrooms are downstairs and disabled accessible. We brought my dad who is in a wheelchair, but can walk a little, we just managed to get him up and down the stairs to the living area once a day. We also brought a bath seat to use over the bathtub. Eating outside is an option.
Schönes Haus , hübsche Umgebung
Das Haus war sauber und mit allem ausgestattet was gebraucht wird. Der Garten ist riesig und lädt zum verweilen ein.
Es gibt gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der Nähe.
Die Fahrräder die im Haus sind hätten mal eine Überholung nötig.
Wir hatten einen schönen Aufenthalt.
