    The Glass Room sleeping up to 2 guests

    Filled with attractive features and set in an Area of Natural Beauty, this holiday will delight everyone.
    This delightful, holiday cottage is attached to the owner’s period property and its name refers to the stunning floor-to-ceiling window in the bedroom. It is set in an aonb in the Dedham Vale where the artist John Constable painted many of his famous scenes. Set in the owner’s grounds, with its own private area of garden, it is the ideal choice for a romantic break and is in an excellent area for walking and cycling. The nearby Roman town of Colchester has an excellent range of shops, as well as a zoo and castle. The peaceful Stour Estuary, Maningtree, and Mistley are a 6-minute drive, whilst London is less than an hour away by train. An excellent location to explore all the delights of both Essex and Suffolk. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    6ft bed, floor-to-ceiling window and vaulted ceiling. Shower room with toilet.

    Carol – 9 Nov 2018
    "We had an amazing stay at the Glass Room . The owners were friendly . Lovely area to visit would return."
    Michael – 7 Nov 2018
    "Quiet and peaceful.Enjoyed our stay immensely. The views over the fields from the bedroom were super. Hope to return soon."
    Brian – 28 Sep 2018
    "A well maintained, clean, bright and comfortable property. The owners, who lived in the main house were very pleasant and not intrusive. An added bonus and entertainment, were the three alpacas in the field at the end of the garden!"
    Mervyn – 21 Aug 2018
    "It is a real shame that this delightful cottage suffers from the proximity to a busy lane. Although only a B road it is used as a link to the nearby A12 making it quite busy, especially during the morning and evening . This means that we were unable to leave the bathroom window open at night, and because there is no other ventilation in the bedroom it meant a lack of fresh air . As a couple who have their bedroom window open even in winter, it was very noticable. Even a Dyson fan didn't make enough difference. As I say , this is a real shame because everything else was really good, including the three Alpacas watching us over the fence."
    Nigel – 9 Jun 2018
    "We had a really lovely holiday in a beautiful modern cottage, it had everything you could want, the owners were exceptionally nice.The area was very central for many lovely gardens especially being in Constable Country, we loved the area."
    Gillian – 8 May 2018
    "We had a lovely holiday in Ardleigh Heath which was ideally situated for the places we wanted to visit. Our scores reflect the fact that when it rained, and it did rain very hard, the rain actually poured in at the French windows and the bottom of the bedroom window. We would not want to stay there in the winter because the boiler was noisy as the bedroom wasn’t separated by any doors and would not want to stay there in the heat of the summer because the bedroom did not have any opening window. For the time of the year we stayed, it was OK."
    robert – 1 May 2018
    "very pleasant experience, the owners were very welcoming and helpful with local knowledge. The owners respected our privacy."
    Sonia – 12 Mar 2018
    "We had a warm personal welcome from Emma along with a welcome pack and some beautiful yellow roses. There was a choice of DVDs but no books. I took my own but it's nice to have the option of something different"
    Mandy – 11 Feb 2018
    "Even more relaxing than we ever thought it could be!"
    pamela – 20 Jan 2018
    "Amazing hospitality, the glass room was outstanding in every way!!!"
