4/5 Good

Colchester House
We were very comfortable although a great addition would be a little nest of tables so that we could put our coffee cups on while watching TV and to use for our Scrabble games in the conservatory!

4/5 Good

Ideal base when visiting the area
Situated in a quiet cul de sac it is ideally placed for visiting the many local areas of interest. A warm friendly welcomr from the owners, who live in the adjacent property ensures that, in the unlikely event of any problems, help is literally on hand. The large lawned rear garden is ideal for the younger visitors to expend their energy. Whilst close to the town it is suitably distanced to provide a peaceful retreat away from traffic noise.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely property in a great location
The house was a lovely and spacious 4 bed property. We stayed there with friends (8 of us) and our dogs and there was plenty of room for all of us. The house was roomy, clean and homely. It was central to everywhere! During our stay we went to town, the zoo, the beach and several country parks and we were never driving for more than 20 mins (generally about 10-15mins), perfect location! Gen and David were great, so friendly and helpful and the kids got on well too! The communication was great and they were very responsive, I would highly recommend staying here you won't be disappointed 😁

4/5 Good

A comfortable stay
This property was perfect for our family. The location was perfect, there was plenty of room and everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Unfortunately we didn't have the weather on our side but the garden looked very inviting and spacious too. Our only negative comment was that there was possibly too many personal belongings out which made us feel a little intruding and the shower was a little to cold for our liking (I'm sure this is an easy fix though!) Overall we would definitely recommend this property to family's visiting Colchester.

4/5 Good

Maison spacieuse et calme
Très bon séjour chez Gen et David. Maison très agréable et calme. Le jardin est très appréciable. Seul petit bémol, l’équipement de cuisine est un peu juste. Il nous a manqué une cafetière et un peu plus de vaisselle / couverts.
