Le logement

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 B/A. 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.

Chisholm's was originally the housekeeper's cottage for our family house, and has just been completely renovated with 2 bedrooms, one double with an 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.

With a bit of notice, we can provide board and card games, books, music, a high chair or travel cot - just let us know what will make your stay.

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 Vine and 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!

There is ALWAYS someone at home so if you need anything, please just ask one of us and we will be delighted to help.

With advance notice, we are delighted to light the log-burner and receive an online shop for you, 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, but there are some wonderful local 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 an hour by train from Liverpool Street if you wish to leave the car and arrange an online grocery delivery! I will send detailed directions to you upon confirmation of booking.

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 - I will inform you of this at the time of booking to ensure that you are aware. Our main opening in 2018 is 10th June when we open for the National Gardens Scheme.

Accès des voyageurs

Please note that the pool is outdoors and so is only open and heated from late April until late September, depending on conditions. It is not an automatic part of any booking, but by separate arrangement. Thank you.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

There is always someone here - if we can possibly help you with anything, we will but we will absolutely respect your privacy, and politely ask you to do the same. When my children are at home, our family time is sacred, so please bear this in mind! Thank you.

We really want you to have the most wonderful time, so please do ask if there is anything we can help with.

Autres remarques

Chisholm's is ideal for a family break, for gardeners or walkers wanting to see local specialities, a birthday weekend, for 2 couples or for friends. It is romantic, peaceful and private and yet you are never too isolated. If the dates you would like are showing on the calendar as booked, please do contact me anyway - I may be able to conjure something else up!

Dogs: Up to 2 non-barking, housetrained dogs over 6 months are extremely welcome at £3 each per night, but we ask that you don't let them upstairs or on the furniture, or allow them off the lead whilst in the garden or near the horses. There are many wonderful walks for you to enjoy with them.

Absolutely no smoking in the cottage please

Please read through ALL the information before booking, and be sure to book for the correct number of people!

Please ask before inviting guests.....

Please respect the Honesty Box which sits beside the gin and tonic and whiskey and so on. We love to leave you a drink to relax with as soon as you arrive, but please don't leave both the bottle and the tin empty! We want to be generous; please don't abuse this.

Please also respect the heating! Too often, we find the thermostat and radiators all on full, with every window wide open because it is unbearably hot. Open the windows by all means, but not when you are roaring through heating oil! Thank you.

Chisholm's will be set up for you as if you are trusted houseguests and friends so please treat it as such, and leave it as you would leave a friend's house who had clearly gone to trouble for you! Please use mats and coasters where provided and don't allow young children to play unattended. Please don't move furniture around, or take blankets, chairs etc etc from the house into the garden - we are only too happy to provide these if asked, but will provide the appropriate thing, and not Chisholm's which is for indoor use only.

Please take care of it, and respect that we will have gone to trouble to make it as fresh, clean and welcoming as possible for you. Thank you, we look forward to meeting you!

Beautiful building and grounds. A great little wood fireplace. Perfect for a relaxing romantic getaway and a good location to explore surrounding villages and Dedham vale area. Easy to find too! Polly is a great host too, always accessible and very welcoming.

Lovely quiet spot with beautiful grounds. Bedrooms were very comfortsble and beautifully prepared. Polly had a fire going in the cozy sitting room when we arrived and was very understanding with our late checkout when we couldn't find our car keys!

Arrived to be greeted by polly. Who showed us round the gorgeous house. Parked right next to the entrance which is so helpful with lots of luggage / kids. House is gorgeous- everything you need for a weekend away- cot, highchair, toys, gin. Stunning countryside and very friendly horses and dogs. Went to Colchester zoo one day then flatford mill to walk around the river. Great weekend Thanks to polly and britt for all the horse chat.

This was our third stay at Chisholm and it was every bit as good as the previous two. Polly is a very welcoming host and you feel completely at home as soon as you arrive. We have now seen the gardens through three seasons and they are always spectacular. We are already looking for a date to visit again as it is so cosy and relaxing.

Chisholm's is the cottage wing of our family house, so although you will have complete peace and be totally self-contained, there are always people around; us, our three very civilised offspring (17-10) and the people who help us. We are a relaxed, cheerful lot, and have a very …
