The Cart Lodge is our largest property and sleeps up to 10 – 12 people. Situated on a quiet lane away from the main farm, the building dates from the previous century and has been tastefully converted leaving some features from it’s previous life.

It has been rated 4 stars by Visit England and has an M2 mobility rating, (typically suitable for a person with restricted walking ability and for those that may need to use a wheelchair some of the time).

Inside you will find a large open plan kitchen, dining area and living room with log burner. A good sized utility room is adjacent to the kitchen.

The spacious ground floor family sized bedroom, which has a kingsize bed and two single beds (these can be joined to create one double bed if needed) plus en-suite bathroom, is also suitable for those with wheel chair needs as the property has an M2 mobility rating.

The cottages are dog friendly for up to two dogs. There is a charge of £10 per dog, per stay.

Please contact us before booking if you are under 21 years of age.

Arrival is from 3pm and departure is by 11am.

Upstairs, there is another large comfortable living area with sea views over the estuary and a double sofa bed. Also upstairs are two twin bedrooms facing the main bathroom and a double bedroom with en-suite shower facilities at the end of the building.
There is one travel cot and one high chair in the lodge. Please note we do not supply stair gates, so do bring your own.

The Cart Lodge has a courtyard garden which stretches along two sides of the building and this contains tables, chairs and that all-important bbq for sunny days (do bring your own BBQ tools as there are none supplied). We now sell a BBQ lighter 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.

A large secure storage area can be found behind the building, suitable for bicycles or windsurfing equipment for those of a sporty nature.

Please note there is no hot tub at this property.


St Osyth is a small village to the west of Clacton. It offers a few shops and general stores along with 2 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 the village. Fishing at our reservoir can be arranged (£10 per pass, do enquire when booking), as can passes for nearby nature reserves which offer superb birdwatching opportunities, barn owls, little egrets, curlews 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 and it’s park, 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 rowboat), cream teas and visiting the famous artworks of Constable and Munnings, all of which are well worth a visit.
