Le logement
Refurbished in January 2020, this is a bright, spacious flat, with a magnificent Georgian mahogany half-tester king-size bed. The annex boasts a spacious bathroom, and a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need including an oven, microwave, electric hobs, and work-space for meal preparation. There’s a fridge, with milk, eggs, and butter, which are provided for you on your arrival to help make your stay easy, and enjoyable.  
The annex, or apartment has:
- Smart TV which swivels on the wall so you can view it from both the bed, and the sofa.
- A separate, walk-in power-shower
- A large six-foot bath
- Sofa, desk, chest of drawers, cupboard and hanging space
- You have use of the adjoining garden (rugs are available) and if you’re feeling energetic, try a bounce on the trampoline, entirely at your own risk!
- We have a swimming pond, or a natural pool. If you’re brave enough to want a dip - it isn’t heated - let us know, and we'll see what we can do.
The kitchen comes with coffee and a selection of teas and your breakfast items are, typically; granola, Weetabix, butter, jam, and eggs etc.
If you have food allergies or dietary limitations of any kind, please let us know in advance.
Other things:
On-demand shows and movies
Secured Wifi
Private garden area
Hair dryer
Linens and towels are included
Dishes, pots, pans, + oil, spices, etc are in the cupboards.
All you really need do is turn up!
An all-weather jumbo bean bag lives under the bed and rugs for picnics live in the hanging cupboard.
The Annex comfortably sleeps 2. If your party is larger (i.e. a 3rd person, or a child), the sofa is a sofa-bed and will comfortably accommodate one adult or 2 small children.
We have a travel cot available-if you need it. Please contact us in advance to discuss arrangements. We can also leave a twin air mattress and extra linen in the cupboard prior to your arrival.
A few more things...
1. We live in the main house full-time and have two ridiculously friendly dogs and a cat. Though we don’t allow pets in the guest wing, if you suffer from pet allergies you should know that our animals potter about the place. (Most of our guests adore them!) Be aware though, allergens might lurk, for those unfortunate enough to suffer from such things.
2. Approximately once a week during the warmer months the lawn needs a trim. It’s a big lawn and we try to keep the noise to a minimum. Mostly, the garden work is reasonably quiet (raking, trimming, etc.) but sometimes it’s a little noisy (leaf blowers, hedge trimmers, fence repair, and such stuff). Most guests don’t even bat an eye, but someone mentioned it and we thought going forward, our Airbnb guests should know what to expect.
3. We’re in the heart of the big-skied, glorious North Essex countryside. Even though we’re only an hour from London you’ll probably run across tractors and pot-holes in the roads. Also, birds, the occasional badger and very often deer deviate into the lanes. Drive with caution! Knowing how to reverse is a useful skill.
If you get lost, it’s best to ask for directions or call us - you’ll be amazed at our rural position. Don’t panic - we’ll work out where you are to get you back on track.
Sat-nav brings you to our gate. Our neighbours are lovely and you may meet a few at the community pub the village saved - The Lamarsh Lion - which is a mile down the road. It boasts fine ales and decent pub grub. Booking at this time is necessary.
And please stick to local footpaths when walking. Nettles sting, brambles rake; so wear suitable shoes and clothing on country rambles.

Accès des voyageurs
You have your own entrance to come and go as you please, and it's very private. You'll have the use of the garden to the side/front of the property - perfect for a quiet picnic, glass of wine, or impromptu barbecue.
We have a trampoline but you bounce at your own risk!
There is also a natural swimming pond, otherwise known as an organic pool. Built in 2016, this is a delight in summer. If you'd like to have a swim, let us know when you get here.
We can provide an old charcoal barbecue (not very good) but not the charcoal. Please let us know if you'd like to have this available.

Autres remarques
This is an idyllic rural retreat. As the flat is self contained with its own entrance, it is Covid friendly. We give the whole place a thorough clean after each guest.
You will need a vehicle to really see the area.
The annex is romantic, peaceful and private - but you will never feel too isolated.

Our Airbnb has a sofa bed if you have a third person with you and, if necessary we have a travel cot too. Please check out our terms as per extra guests.
There's plenty of room for picnicking or chilling-out when the sun shines.
Our annexe is perfect for those who need a rest. It is ideal for garden lovers and garden-visitors keen to check out local gardens and for cyclists who wish to peddle the gentle hills of the Stour valley, or for ramblers who want to totter about Suffolk's charming villages!
With guests from Australia to Austria, France to San Fran, and over sixty, five-star reviews, come and find out for yourselves what a wonderful, quiet, great-value Airbnb this is.
Perfect for a birthday weekend, an anniversary treat, or as a stop-off for seeing old friends in the area, our apartment is a great base to explore this unspoilt location of East Anglia, which is less than an hour from the M25 out of east London.

Lamarsh, Royaume-Uni

Location information:
Situated on the Essex / Suffolk border, Holdens Barn is perfectly positioned for trips in and around Constable country - named after the world-renown artist John Constable.
Enjoy the subtle gently valleys of the Dedham Vale, with the pretty timbered 'chocolate box,' villages of Stoke by Nayland, Kersey, Boxford, Dedham and Hadleigh.
If you like the rustic charm of medieval, wonky oak-framed buildings, the famous Suffolk wool towns of Lavenham, Long Melford, (which are less than half an hour away) Clare and Cavendish are unmissable. This is Gainsborough Country (after the artist, Thomas Gainsborough).
Historic, Roman-walled Colchester is a short drive (20-30 mins) and we're forty minutes from the seaside at Frinton with its sandy beach and charming Victorian town.
Colchester has a large Norman castle (built on top of the remains of the Temple of Claudius, razed by Boudicca in AD61) with a recently refurbished museum. Castle Park next to the castle, is lovely, and has events on throughout the year. 'First Site' is a modern gallery worth checking out not least for its contemporary curved architecture, and of course Colchester Zoo is world-famous. It really is excellent!
Heading inland, Bury St Edmunds (with famous abbey), is forty minutes away and Chelmsford is about the same distance south, towards London.
Central London is about one hour and a half by car. Cambridge one hour. Ipswich and Saffron Walden about forty-five minutes.

Local Shopping:
Sudbury, our local town and celebrated as the birthplace of Thomas Gainsborough, has many supermarkets, (Waitrose, Aldi, Sainsbury, Tesco etc.) and restaurants for all tastes - and wallets - banks, boots, hairdressers, as well as an excellent market in the main square on Thursdays and Saturday mornings. There's an excellent butcher here as well as groceries.
Halstead, (fifteen-mins), has a range of shops on its steep high street.
Bures, just down the road has a deli and a small confectionery/paper shop. There's a cracking farmers market on the second Saturday of every month.

Local Sights:
From our door, many walks trace through the acclaimed Dedham Vale, Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) countryside.
A keen eye will spot deer, badgers, hares, and a variety of birdlife too. In Spring, we often have nightingales singing nearby.
Following the network of footpaths you can explore the pleasant, gently undulating valley of the river Stour. One couple made Nayland and back in a few hours.
The ancient Norman churches are well worth exploring (Lamarsh is c.1100) and all are generally free to enter. If you're a keen cyclist, biking is a great way to explore the windy roads and the surprising nooks and crannies dotted about our ancient landscape.
(A pile of information sits within the desk in the main room - including ordinance survey maps).

Train:
If you're car-less we can collect you from Bures train station which is a mile or so away. (About 15-20 mins walk). The train is on the Sudbury line (aka - The Gainsborough Line) and connects to mainline trains at Marks Tey. From here you can reach London Liverpool Street about an hour in one direction, and Sudbury, which is a brisk seven minutes along the valley floor in the other.
In our experience, you really are much better off with a car.
There's a wonderful railway museum at Chapel - the next stop from Bures towards Marks Tey.

Pubs and Restaurants:
PLEASE NOTE: With various Covid restrictions in place currently all the venues below will need to be contacted in advance for a booking.
The Lamarsh Lion, nicknamed 'The Painter's Pub' is about a mile away and walkable if you're feeling thirsty. The pub re-opened in May 2018 after it was bought by the local community. It is a classic country pub with fine ales and super-value pub-grub. It's a friendly establishment with dining area, pool table and lovely outside views across the Stour Valley. Please, come and support it! Booking for a meal is now mandatory.
Why the Painter's Pub? Thomas Gainsborough, along with John Constable, painted in the village (Constable's grandfather was the miller in Bures) and, since the pub has been in operation for over 700 years, it is likely that these two would more-than-likely have enjoyed refreshments here.

Further away (eight-minutes drive), right on the river Stour is the Henny Swan, where you can enjoy the weir and the added joys of paddle-boarding or canoeing towards Sudbury. Do book; it's popular especially in summer.
Down in Bures we have the Eight Bells (Essex side) and the Three Horseshoes (Suffolk side). A little further along is the Thatchers Arms in Mount Bures.
There's also another local community pub locally - the excellent Kings Head in Pebmarsh (ten mins drive).
Also in Pebmarsh at The Courtyard, is the excellent Foragers Restaurant, which does a fine breakfast, coffees and sensational locally-sourced food (hence: foragers).
There's a neat local (Londis) shop here, which sells essentials. This is about three miles away.

A wide range of dining options are available in the local villages from Indian (Little India in Maplestead - 10 mins - is probably the pick - but also, Riverside Spice in Earls Colne (10 mins) and Ballingdon Valley Indian - Ballingdon, Sudbury (12 mins).
For Chinese, Thai, Italian and Turkish, you can pick up your choice in Sudbury.
Earls Colne (10mins) and Halstead have Thai and Indian offers too.
For fast-food (McDonalds, KFC) you'll need to head to the Great Cornard side of Sudbury about 15-20 mins drive away. Both are drive-thru.

We're more than happy to point them out and we try to keep the file in the annexe up to date with contact numbers.
If in doubt, come and ask.
