Really we don’t want to tell you how lovely and unspoilt so much of Essex is, we don’t want to tell you how much beautiful countryside there is, how it is a county steeped in history going back to Roman times.   We don’t want to shout about the wonderful medieval villages such as Saffron Waldon, the gorgeous Georgian town of Maldon or the fabulous cities such as Colchester with some of the most impressive Roman remains found anywhere in the UK.

But if you are considering popping out of London for instance in the heat of the summer, we have some wonderful summer holiday cottages in Essex.

The countryside in Essex is exceptional with its undulating countryside, rolling wheatfields and ancient woodlands covering three quarters of the county.and artists such as Gainsborough and Constable took their inspiration from Essex countryside.  Essex is a great county for bird watching, there are wonderful marsh areas, where you can see oystercatchers and terns galore, large Brent geese and the common seagull of course!

You can see for miles!

You will be spoilt for choice, the Essex coast is stunning, marshes and beaches – you really can get away from it all whilst staying in one of our summer holiday cottages in Essex.

From Harwich to Maldon, home to the iconic brown-sailed Thames Sailing Barges that once ferried goods along the east coast to London, to Old Leigh, with its cockle sheds, clapboard artists’ studios and picturesque cobbled streets, echoes of the past reverberate throughout the area.

If you love taking your pet on holiday, Essex is the ideal destination in England.  It’s fun being able to explore footpaths with your pet – such lovely countryside in Essex.  Whether you are in a large group or just a couple, it is ideal to be able to take your dog or cat on holiday – they just don’t want to be left behind!
