Accommodation

Stable cottage was tastefully converted from an old stable block on the farm dating from the 1800’s. It is all on one level and has lovely views of the surrounding paddocks with horses grazing and the estuary.

It is accessible to M2 mobility standards, (typically suitable for a person with restricted walking ability and for those that may need to use a wheelchair some of the time).

On entering the cottage you will find an open plan kitchen, dining and seating area (with double sofa bed) which has a log burner to keep the cottage cosy in the cooler days of autumn and winter. Patio doors lead to the garden with views over the menage and paddocks to the sea.
Following the sloping hall-way to the other end of the cottage, a peaceful twin bedroom with en-suite shower room can be found and a larger family bedroom, which has a king size bed and a single bed plus en-suite shower room, is situated at the very end of the building. In total there are five bed spaces with an additional double sofa bed in the living area.

There is one travel cot and one high chair in the cottage.

The garden has two tables, eight chairs and a BBQ to enjoy those summer days (do bring your own BBQ tools as there are none supplied). We now sell a BBQ lighting pack, with a 5kg bag of charcoal, a pack of firelighters and a box of large matches for £9.99. These must be ordered and paid for at the time of booking. They cannot be booked on arrival.

There is also a fire pit on the decking, we sell large bags of kiln dried logs for the fire pit for an additional cost of £6.99. These must be booked and paid for before arrival.

Hot tubs:
Outside, there is a four person log fired hot tub set in the garden of Stable Cottage, optional to book and available for an additional cost:
The base price is £75 for one – two nights, then £20 for each night thereafter. We supply the hot tub freshly cleaned and filled with water, we also supply logs and a firebrick to light and heat the hot tub, it is up to the guest to light and heat the hot tub.

Location

St Osyth is a small village to the west of Clacton. It offers a few shops and general stores along with 3 pubs and a good fish and chip shop. There are approximately 115 buildings around the village listed as historic or having special architectural interest including the Priory. Oyster beds can be found at the beach past the village.

There are pleasant walking and cycling opportunities around the farm and village. Fishing at our reservoir can be arranged (do enquire when booking), as can passes for nearby nature reserves which offer superb birdwatching opportunities, barn owls, little egrets, curlews and and regular sightings of the once rare marsh harrier have been reported.

It really is an excellent base for Essex and Suffolk coastline, countryside and tourist attractions.

Colchester is a quick drive or bus ride away, and as England’s oldest recorded town there’ll be plenty of historical sights to see -have a wander around Colchester Castle then keep the kids happy by taking them to the first-class zoo.

The famous Suffolk Heritage Coastline is also a short drive away with towns such as Southwold and Aldesburgh to browse around, or else head to neighbouring Wivenhoe, or Brightlingsea where you can try Mac’s Plaice fabulous fish and chips, then take the little ferry back.

Picturesque Dedham is a short drive away for walks, boating on the river Stour (bring your own kayaks / canoes, or hire a row boat), cream teas and visiting the famous artworks of Constable and Munnings, all of which are well worth a visit.
