Wrabness Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Charming 1 bedroom self-catering cottage

This charming country cottage is situated in the grounds of the owner's home in Wrabness on the Essex/Suffolk border. The cottage is warm and cosy with a wood burning stove in the lounge area. The Annexe was refurbished in April 2011 and has a new bathroom suite, flooring, tiling, new towels, bedding, crockery, cutlery, curtains and furniture. The property benefits from a comfy double bedroom, kitchen equipped with microwave, toaster, kettle, washing machine, oven/hob, fridge with freezer compartment, etc., bathroom (bath with over bath shower), lounge furnished with 2 x 2 seater, breakfast/dining table, television, DVD player, selection of DVD's, books and games, wood burning stove, entrance porch, garden (gated) with table and chairs and car parking.

The main property has a small wood and an orchard and these can be explored.

The Firs annexe dates back to the 1600's. The property is grade 2 listed and benefits from a wealth of period features.

Children are welcome but please keep in mind the stairs are steep. Children's toys (including beach/outdoor) are available on request. Chickens are kept at the adjoining property and some free-range eggs will happily be provided on arrival. The property has many period features and as a result some of the ceilings/doorways are low adding to it's charm and character. The village railway station gives very easy access to London (1 hour by train).

The Firs Annexe is located in Wrabness (CO11) and benefits from the following local attractions:

Wrabness beach - approximately 20 minute walk/5 minute drive.

Village shop - 15 minute walk/5 minute drive.

Train station - 15 minute walk/5 minute drive. (Approximately 1 hour from London Liverpool Street.)

Essex Way (along the beach).

Harwich - historic port ( 15 minute drive).

Harwich International Port (15 minute drive).

Constable Country/Dedham Vale - 20 minute drive.

Colchester - Englands oldest recorded town (30 minute drive).

The Firs Annexe is on the main bus route between Harwich and Colchester (bus stop approximately 200 yards).

Guests benefit from a pretty enclosed garden area, ideal for relaxing and enjoying a well earned rest. The amenities in the village include a well equipped village shop, train station and bus route with the beach and woods to explore all within walking distance. Many historic properties, tourist attractions, national trust attractions, Suffolk/Essex coastlines and scenic countryside are very close by. This is a beautiful area to visit and a perfect way to enjoy the English Countryside at it's best.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cosy cottage in lovely surroundings. Had a wonderful time . It was just wonderful that I could take my two dogs. Went for lovely walks . We loved the chickens and enjoyed talking to the lovely Don who lived in the main house. We enjoyed the log burner it was very cosy . We was treated to some fresh eggs from the chickens which was really thoughtful . I think we found a lovely place to escape for a couple of days to totally relax . Wonderful stay **********
