We went for a short little break and the Ivy cottage was recommended and it didn't disappoint! It is in a lovely little part of Essex, great for walking, bike riding and visiting one of the local hostelries. If you want a lovely relaxing break, have a look at this little gem. Regards Sean & Lin

However, no extras like toiletries so remember to bring your own. Unfortunately, I didn't sleep well at all as got woken up by a man shouting and looking at... More

Ivy cottage- a beautiful setting with cute individual cottages sleeping up to four people with everything you need. Surroundings are beautiful..... BUT Owners are rude, unprofessional and should clearly not be running a BnB- they ruined our evening by stereotyping and misjudging us. The lady owner didn't do anything but moan at us from the start and her husband was... More

I booked Ivy Cottage for my parents one week stay from Australia as we didn't have enough room to accommodate them comfortably at ours. My parents were blown away by the hospitality and service provided and I am eternally grateful for them making them feel right at home. I can't recommend Ivy Cottage enough!

Although we arrived much earlier than originally agreed we were given a warm and friendly welcome. Access to the property was fully explained and made it very easy for us to come and go as we pleased. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable and the breakfast excellent.
