  • We stayed for three nights for my husband’s birthday and wasn’t disappointed. A lovely little place in a quiet spot but close enough to amenities should you need them. A lovely clean modern lodge with a secluded patio area with a hot tub, which was fab watching the wildlife. Was even great in the wind and rain although a bit chilly getting in and out. Absolutely loved feeding the alpacas an added touch. Thanks for a great stay, would love to come back soon in the warmer weather.

    Monika2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Spotlessly clean, very quiet and a touch of luxury with the hot tub. The friendly alpaca in the next field was an added bonus!

    Chris2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, has everything you need and the hot tub is amazing as are the alpacas. Plus diesel the cat was was an unexpected but great company in the evenings

  • An amazing place set in a beautiful location. Andy was a great host. Highly recommended!

    Joe2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing property! Andy provides all the information you need regarding all the equipment in the property and also local supermarkets, pubs etc. We will definitely be visiting again in the summer to enjoy the Hot tub! Also the bath is amazing!

    Charlie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The place is in a lovely location, very quiet and private. The property is down a track road which is a little bumpy so if you have a lowered car you will struggle to get to the property (as we discovered) but luckily we each came in our own cars and we left the lowered car up the road. Every thing was perfect, the hot tub is absolutely amazing, very warm and very relaxing! The bath is also very nice. The bed was SO comfy also! That cat, I think is called Deisel? Let himself be known and he came in and sat with us for a while and he even napped on the sofa before going back off, he/she was very cute and gentle. The alpaca feed was a nice touch- We fed the alpacas in the morning before we left for work. The property has all the utensils you could possibly need from a cocktail maker to plates and cutlery etc. The only thing I'd say is about emptying the bin before you leave, I would have thought that would have come under the cleaning charge that you pay but it wasn't a problem and it got done. We WILL be booking to go back in the summer next month so we can enjoy the hot tub again and this time use the BBQ! We loved every second and we look forward to returning!

  • Unique and characterful stay in a fab location, Theo is a great host, we loved the welcoming loaf of bread and tasty homemade granola and the beautiful walks around the mill. Wish we could have stayed longer! Our teenagers and our dog were very happy too :-)

    Alexander2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Unique and appealing, if you’re looking for a stay with a difference. The kitchen met all of our needs and the log burner was a the treat we were looking forward to- and it didn’t disappoint!

  • All the team is super professional, Mudi contacted us WhatsApp, sent a list of what we need to take with us. Driver was punctual and very careful as roads seem dangerous sometimes. Our guide Radi was extremely friendly and helped a lot while going down to the Diamond beach, we felt very comfortable and secured. Also we had an opportunity to have a nice lunch with local dishes on the way. Trip is a great value for money as you are able to see the best spots of Nusa Penida in one day. I fully recommend Mudi and his team!

    Hussam2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Radi was an amazing host. Thank you for being patient. We got to explore the best of the East and West side of Nusa Penida. It was overall a great experience :)

    Donovan2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Mudi was the best guide we could hope for , he brought us to the best place of nusa penida , he was very kind and patient. He took the time to take the best pictures of us . I would really recommend booking this tour with Mudi . It was incredible, one of the most beautiful places I've been in my life , totally worth it ! Thank you Mudi !

    Britany2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was great ! I recommend you this guide!

    Полина2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Visiting Nusa Penida has been a dream of ours even since we decided to visit Bali and having Mudi as our tour guide for the day was the best decision! We have been on many tours in Bali, and personally we believe Mudi has been the most accommodating, caring, informative and flexible of all. The island offers stunning nature views and Mudi was not only our guide, but also our private photographer (he even lined up for us in the sun and heat and told us to stay in the shade until it was our turn to go). He has excellent knowledge of the island, Bali, the culture and religion and is extremely easy to get along with. Towards the end of the day, we still had some time to spare and Mudi took us to a nice, sandy beach with very clear water to dip in and cool down after a long and sweaty trek. Finally, if you are worried about not having enough food and drinks, don’t be - Mudi constantly asks you if you need anything and is happy to stop on the way to the next destination. Overall, I wouldn’t hesitate to book this fantastic trip with Mudi, especially as he is one of the very few to offer visits to both the West and East of Nusa Penida and for the price, it’s a bargain! Thank you Mudi! :)

    Mirela2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely amazing day trip to Nusa Penida thanks to Mudi and his friend (our driver for the day). We visited the most beautiful and scenic places and even got an extra sight in. Our driver is local to the island and has expert knowledge of the area. We had the freedom to stay as long as we liked at each destination and even stopped for lunch at a lovely restaurant after visiting the treehouse. Mudi even helped me through the booking process as I had never used air bnb before. We will definitely book again. 10/10 would recommend.

    Courteney2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing team!! Truly mesmerising :)

    Keara2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Mudi has been entertaining us for a whole day with careful attention! The driver on Penida Island, Gudi, smiled all the time and I was able to relax and spend the whole time. People who want to recommend to their friends. thank you very much.

  • I stayed here with my wife a couple of weeks ago and have to say we had a great time. Kristina was very helpful and responded quickly to any questions. The place was very clean with some very luxurious touches (the bath and hot tub) and the Netflix account was a nice touch. There are some lovely places for walking and the local pubs are great. Lastly, Diesel the cat was amazing company and feeding the animals at the farm was good fun.

    Jennie2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed here for 2 nights for my 30th birthday with my husband and friends. It was amazing, all of us had such a good time and would recommend The Stables to everyone! Very clean throughout, hot tub was amazing, kitchen was well equipped, fridge/freezer was a good size too. Communication was great, I received messages about check in and when the hot tub would be ready, very polite. Diesel the cat is lovely, very affectionate, however did wake us up a few times in the night for food, was happy once fed. Feeding the alpacas was a highlight. We were all so sad to be leaving, it was such a relaxing break and felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, very private. We will definitely be booking to come back soon. Thanks for a great stay!

    Faye2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful place to stay if you want a relaxing few days. The hot tub is great touch for this place and the stables is fully equipped. Definitely would love to come back again

  • Great place to stay with a large group! Two living room spaces and two dining rooms, as well as a cosy large kitchen. We really enjoyed our weekend stay at this beautiful home!

    Sabrina2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A great and quirky property - fab for a weekend away with friends!

    Daniel2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very large and was a super venue for my mums 80th birthday lunch it allowed relatives coming from a distance to stay and spend a bit more valuable family time together. Despite being large it still feels cosy and made for a very special day. We were there in the winter so mostly stayed indoors but the garden is also super and it would have been lovely in warmer weather to spill outside and enjoy that space too.

    Claire2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • A group of 13 of us stayed for two nights at Harry’s place for my 30th birthday and we cannot reccomend it enough! The house is huge, beautiful, quirky and was equipped with everything we needed for the time there! The bedrooms are all lovely and comfortable, little touches made our stay so easy like providing towels, speakers and logs for the fire! It’s a great location about 20 min walk from the station, great pub a few doors down, and a nice area for a walk down the road. There was everything we needed- and Harry was super quick and helpful with all communication, a fantastic house and stay!

    Anjuli2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing host - little touches, quick responses and easy check-in. The house is immaculate, so stunning and the pictures honestly don't do the space justice - so many spacious rooms! We had the best time and would firmly encourage others to book this house!

    Chloe2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We hired out this lovely house for extra accommodation for our daughters wedding. It was a perfect base for family and friends. It was brilliant. There are a number of large rooms in this beamed house and it wasn't a problem for the bride and groom not to bump into each other in the wedding morning. Kitchen has everything you need to cater for a large group . All our guests loved it here and it contributed to making the weekend very special . Highly recommended. Thank you.

    Adrian2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fabulous weekend in Braintree. The house is perfect for a family/friends get together. There’s plenty of living space, a large dining room table and a lovely spacious and very well equipped kitchen. It’s brimming with beautiful period features, it’s tastefully decorated and has oodles of character. It’s a short walk to the town centre too which is nice to wander around for a few hours.

    2 en suite bedrooms, COTTAGE wing of Grade 2 country house in 8 acres of garden & Stour Valley. Stunning views, countryside & birdlife. Romantic, charming, blissfully comfortable, cosy & warm. Tennis court and swimming pool BY ARRANGEMENT when available.. Heaven! Please read on to see current news and updates. We acknowledge the seasons: At CHRISTMAS (from mid-Dec) - it will feel festive and special with a decorated tree - the perfect place to wake up to a stocking! We also mark EASTER and Valentine's Day and the fresh flowers in the cottage reflect the season. 2020 GARDEN OPENINGS FOR THE PUBLIC when we serve soups and teas and will ask you to move your car: Saturday 22nd February, 1-4pm. SNOWDROPS AND WINTER PLANTS AND SHRUBS Sunday 7th June - 11am - 4pm. Sunday September 13th - 11m - 4pm We continue to develop a Jungle Walk round the Lower Lake - this is at its most "jungley" in May but is lovely throughout the year and improving all the time. Spring blossom (including an avenue of ornamental pear) bluebells with cow parsley running through small woodland areas, and stunning barks with vast and ancient Acacia, leaning Oak and London Planes. A charming enclosed swimming pool garden and long-established bay and yew. A Royal Bed, and a Cottage Garden. Large Victorian glasshouse in walled garden, many scented plants and established climbers throughout the garden, including 30 or so varieties of roses, plus clematis, wisteria and hydrangea, a young Magnolia walk, many varieties of Acer and Eucalyptus. There is also a Bee Garden - a bank of wild flowers which peak with many other autumn stars for our September (Sunday 7th September) Charity opening, when exotic plants and Dahlias supplement the plants which shone in June. Chisholm's was originally the housekeeper's cottage for our family house, and is romantically cosy rather than spacious. It has been completely renovated with 2 bedrooms, one double with an excellent en-suite shower, and the other with 2 single beds with an en-suite bath and a shower over. It has a kitchen/sitting room with a round dining table, log-burner and television and wifi. There is an desk in the hall which is ideal for a laptop, or to write or even revise! Chisholm's is the perfect place for a romantic, private weekend away, just an hour's train journey from Liverpool Street, or for 2 couples or a family to spend some very special time in comfort and an enviable country house location which would be difficult to match. We provide board and card games, books, and with a bit of notice, a high chair. HOWEVER, please don’t be surprised or disappointed if you let me know 24 hours beforehand that you want extras and I can’t provide them - this is a family-run Airbnb, not a world class hotel! As well as Chisholm's, you will be very welcome to enjoy our beautiful 8 acre garden, and BY ARRANGEMENT (and possibly a small fee depending on the our family arrangements) the pool will be available at certain times. There is also a tennis court which you are welcome to enjoy by arrangement, and a well-equipped beach hut is available to rent at Frinton beach (35 mins drive) by arrangement. The garden has several seating areas, including a table and chairs immediately outside Chisholm's Wisteria-covered walls for you to sit and read the paper with a cup of coffee and listen to the church bell chime on the hour, and the endless birdsong. We would simply ask that you respect our family privacy as we will yours - there is masses of room for us all! Please do note though, it is a 4 person cottage. 5, even if one of you is a few weeks old, IS A SQUASH! You've been warned - and I won’t be accepting 5 guests in future. With advance notice, we are delighted to light the log-burner, and we will supply a welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, eggs and bread. Please note though that it is a welcome supply to enable you to have tea and toast or gin and tonic on arrival, not a fully-equipped larder, so if you are wanting things like baking powder, olive oil and a kilo of coffee, please bring them! A full manual is in the cottage. Local interest includes towns (Colchester, Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds) museums (The Munnings Museum at Dedham, The National Horseracing Museum in Newmarket) beaches (Frinton, Aldborough) pubs and restaurants. There are also excellent gardens to visit, including the Beth Chatto Garden, Hyde Hall and East Bergholt Place, and fabulous walking and cycling through the Constable country of the Stour Valley. Chisholm's is 5 miles from Colchester, and is only 50 minutes to an hour by train from London. However, there is no village shop and I can’t recommend the pub - there are excellent pubs and shops within 4 miles or so, but a car is advisable. We will try to accept all bookings we are comfortable with, but one night bookings can be very difficult for us and so we ask that you agree to a £15 surcharge for a one night visit. Thank you. We have horses - they live in an immaculate yard and are extremely well-mannered. However, like any live animal, they can be unpredictable if spooked or frightened so please don't do anything to give them a fright, and be certain to close any gates you go through. Please keep any visiting dogs on leads when you close to the house or anywhere near the yard. Our garden is open to the public and groups on certain dates - please be sure you are happy with these.
    The church bells chime on the hour, every hour between 8am and 8pm, and are rung for Sunday services. 2 traditional working farms in the village and a children's playground.
  • Excellent place to stay and child friendly. Beautiful setting and ideal location for travel to Colchester Zoo and other local tourist spots.

    Mark2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy, peaceful and traditional cottage. Good selection of board games. 15 minute drive to centre of Colchester. Powerful shower. Medium soft bed with crisp, clean bedding. Friendly host and animals. The dog named lettuce showed us the garden, where we bumped into Polly checking on her bees and her daughter’s horses. Would recommend to friends visiting Colchester.

  • We stayed at Horkesley Hall for 2 nights over a February weekend. This was our first experience of Airbnb and, thanks to a completely positive experience, it certainly shan't be our last. Polly is the most thoughtful host. From start to finish our stay could not have gone smoother. Her directions to the Hall were so thorough that I could switch the SatNav off. During our short stay, she sent periodic messages to check we had everything we needed, which, of-course, we absolutely did. Horkesley Hall is a majestic building overlooking beautifully tended gardens with farms extending out in every direction. We chose to go here because, having looked at the amenities, it suited our needs so perfectly. It permits well-behaved dogs to stay, has a log-burner (a wonderful, atmospheric log-burner that completes the setting) and is sufficiently rural to find real peace. We took our dog, Finn, on holiday with us. He got to meet the resident dogs: 2 charming dogs of real character. He got to stare at the horses - some of the finest horses I've ever seen. He got to see a lot of wildlife. Judging from the length of time he slept on his return home it's clear he enjoyed himself immensely. The living room is thoughtfully stocked with myriad supplies one might need. Even though we took a great store of food and provisions, we forgot a couple of things. But thankfully there was a more than adequate supply of things already there. And additionally, Polly had taken the trouble to leave a few fresh supplies for us: milk, eggs and butter, etc. The butter meant we were able to have a lovely steak on our first evening. And the cosy evenings really were the best part of Horkesley Hall for us. Chatting by the log-burner until late evening with a roaring fire and a bottle of single malt surrounded by such a beautiful, traditional setting. Exquisite. I'm sure Horkesley Hall would be tremendous in the warmer months, with the flowers in full bloom and the pool available for a dip. But for me it couldn't be better than the wind howling outside and the rain lashing whilst we sat, completely snug, warm and content in this magnificent setting. During the Saturday there was an open garden event whereupon people visited the Hall and grounds, stopping in the nearby church for refreshments. The event raised some £2000 for charity which is wonderful. I have to confess I took a guilty pleasure in knowing that these visitors were gazing up in interest and wonderment at the very place where we were staying. In short, our stay here - our first Airbnb - was simply wonderful and we thank Polly most sincerely for all her kindness and hospitality. We look forward to trying further Airbnb locations. And we certainly look forward to coming back to this wonderful spot in the not too distant future.

  • For a tree enthusiast this is a lovely place to stay. Sprinkles of yellow ginkgo leaves on dark green yew pyramids were enchanting in the frost. Some unusual trees - bald cypress, magnificent oaks and cedar...... so many! Everything else lovely too.

  • The house is a dream in the countryside! We had a wonderful stay. It is so lovely at Polly‘s house. We will return!

  • We had a really nice couple of days at Polly's place in Little Horkesley. The apartment is very comfortable and set within beautiful grounds. Our son loved exploring and running around with the dogs. Thank you for having us!

    Holly2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Chisholm's is quite charming. We were blessed with fine weather which enabled us to revisit our favourite walks and Inns before returning to enjoy a pot of tea and a nap in front of the fire. The extensive gardens are delightful and you may well be lucky enough to be escorted around by the lovely Mycroft and Lettice, Polly's dogs. It would be good to return to see how the gardens change with the seasons, so another trip is definitely on the cards. The cottage itself is cosy and has everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Polly kindly provided the basics (bread, milk, butter, tea bags etc) so if you don't take provisions you can have a cuppa on arrival. The fire had also been lit which was a lovely touch. Chisholm's is so peaceful you can't help but sleep well and unwind, and we have returned home batteries recharged and feeling much better for our four nights away.

  • Jennie's house is an especially lovely place and she is an amazing host! The location is brilliant and you can walk everywhere within minutes. The room is lovely, cosy, welcoming, and very clean, as well as the rest of the house. Jennie is a super fun person to live with, kind and caring, and she is very forthcoming. Everything to master your everyday life is there and if not, Jennie is always happy to help - also with all sort of advice. Her dedication goes far beyond a regular host, and she feels responsible for your well-being, in and out the house. I can highly recommend her place to everyone, who is looking for the best experience in lovely Colchester!

  • Jennie is a fantastic host who made me feel very welcome and is a pleasure to talk to. Jennie's home is very homely and cosy. The bedroom in which I stayed is lovely too and I've never slept in a more comfortable bed. Will definitely stay again

    Mark2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Walking into Jennie's house felt like walking into my own, so comfortable and Jennie such a dear person, great conversationalist and hugely warm. The house was clean and cosy, bed so comfy I slept for a solid 7 hours (a rarity) and the facilitates perfect. I would highly recommend! Thank you so much for making this such a great stay.

    Natalie2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • The landlord is very good and the room is very warm.

    Yingmei2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Jennies place is well located complete with a nice neighborhood pub, a large recreation area and two grocery stores. The walk into downtown is easy and only takes about 8 to 10 minutes. The walk to the University of Essex is a little longer but very pleasant and takes you along the canal. (Which if you get the chance check out the nature trail running from Colchester to Wivenhoe which is on the way to the University and follows the canal.) Jennie's house besides being well located is very comfortable and clean. Jennie made it easy for us to cook our own meals by providing us with refrigerator and pantry space and then we were able to eat those meals in her lovely garden. She has two of the most well behaved cats I have ever met and is a very warm person who will make you feel at home, I cannot recommend this accommodation enough!

Extremely kind and quick to her responses!! Highly recommended

    A cosy ensuite room in Braintree situated close to Freeport designer village and Braintree town centre ( 5- 10 minutes drive) -also only 15 minutes drive to Witham.

Sylvia and John are great hosts, always friendly and responsive. If you're traveling without a car the location is quite convenient, with efficient bus or train access to the city center or even the greater London area airports. The neighborhood is peaceful and there are quiet trails throughout the urban area and even far out into the countryside.

  • Nicola was a great host, communication was very prompt when we first made contact to book and my daughter and I were made to feel welcome the moment the front door was opened. The accommodation was very homely and we love quirkinesses and that was what we found. The rooms were clean and comfortable and Nicola catered for our dietary needs. We love animals and it was lovely to meet Nicola’s dog who was very friendly and well behaved. Although the house is on a main road, the bedroom is at the back the house and we had a very good nights sleep, you could here the traffic passing if you were in the front room but that didn't bother us. If we visit Braintree again we would definitely stay with Nicola. Thank you Nicola you are a five star host.

    Jayne2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

  • Wow, what a find! This amazing historic Tudor house is full of interesting artefacts and unusual decor. I fell in love with the period features such as the exposed oak beams everywhere, gothic window and beautiful barn style doors - honest and pure beauty! This place is a must if you love old houses with totally authentic character!! The facilities are great; a huge living/dining area with fridge/toaster/kettle etc, cosy bedroom and en suite. Nicola and her friendly dog are excellent hosts and totally respect your privacy. You have a self contained attic space which is totally private and separate with your own front door key. Thank you for a lovely stay in your home Nicola :) I hope to return in the future!

    Rosanna2019-11-14T00:00:00Z

    Clean & spacious room with rich pine wood furniture, a firm and comfortable mattress. "The Yellow house" is In Witham, Essex in a nice and quiet neighbourhood. I let off multiple rooms, some with unsuits and you would have 2 well pointed bathrooms to share between other guests so you don't have to share with too many people. your room can be locked, and has good exclusion from sound as it sits attached to the house rather than part of it as a link detached part.
    plenty of storage space, draws and hanging space suitable for longer term stays. the dressing table can also act as a private dining are so you don't have to interact with other guests if you don't wish to
    neighbour hood is very nice and quiet, Aldi is less than a 10 min walk from the home, parking is street parking but have not had a problem yet as guests always have found somewhere
  • Friendly welcome, nice room and a good shower, in a quiet property . Recommended

    Matt2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Alasdair and his family are very welcoming and accustomed to hosting. They are wonderfully welcoming and helpful. We only had a short stay and was a quick turnover for us between places, but it was evident that everything is organised and well communicated. A set of insturctions were provided in the room if there was anything that we were not sure of and additional towel and hair dryer were provided in preparation for my competition the following day. I highly recommend staying and would not hesitate to stay again inthe future.

    Jack2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • The room was beautiful. We stayed just one night because we were in Essex to visit family and then spent the rest of the time in London. Alasdair was extremely cordial and thorough. The entire home was very clean and orderly, with multiple rooms being rented out to other Airbnb guests or long-term renters. There are so many bathrooms in the 3 story home you'll hardly see anyone else in the home. The room is very lovely and feels very private at the end of the hall on the 2nd floor. We had rented a car and found street parking easy right outside the home within 30 meters. We would definitely stay here again if we're in Essex again to visit.

    A spacious house within walking distance to Colchester Park, town centre and sport centre. Not far from Colchester Hospital (perfect for healthcare staff). Double room with twin beds, can be put together or left separate. Double wardrobe, mirror, beside table, desk and chair. Shared bathroom. Use of washing machine, tumble dryer. Kitchen/diner and garden. Some people who stay are working temporarily in the area.
    I have two other single rooms that are sometimes available. Colchester is a lovely town, it is the oldest recorded town in England, lots to do and see.
    The neighbourhood is very quite and very beautiful with parkland at the back of the house which leads to Castel Park.

  • Cannot recommend highly enough, Alasdair is kind, friendly and a very talented composer. The room was clean and stylish, very reasonably priced and the whole house was absolutely lovely. Other guests living there on a more permanent basis were also lovely and very welcoming. Had access to all household amenities for a small charge, and it felt like home in no time. Thank for such a lovely few days Alasdair, I'll be back next time I'm in the area!
