The surrounding area is a delight to explore: there are many footpaths in the village and Flatford Mill, in the heart of Constable Country is 4 miles away. Dedham village is 3 miles, where guests can hire a rowing boat on the River Stour or enjoy walking in the unspoilt countryside. Farthings is also conveniently located for golf at nearby Stoke-by-Nayland (2 miles) whilst keen gardeners may enjoy a visit to Beth Chatto’s Garden, 7 miles. Nearby Colchester, famous for being the oldest town in England, has a castle and museum set in attractive parkland that stretches down to the River Colne, a zoo and an interesting range of shops, restaurants, galleries and pubs. Colchester also has a rail link to London which takes 50 minutes, so visitors can enjoy a day in the busy capital city and then return to the peace and tranquillity of Farthings. For a day by the sea, guests can choose between the sunshine coast of Essex at Frinton-on-Sea, Walton-on-the-Naze and Clacton or the Heritage coastline of nearby Suffolk where the beaches at Felixstowe, Aldeburgh, Southwold or Walberswick can be enjoyed. Pub 2½ miles.

Guest Comments

“Farthings was perfect for our friends and family gathering/celebration. Jill was attentive and so helpful, even received and unpacked our food delivery which arrived before we did. Wonderful cottage with so much space for the 8 of us. Loved the bbq and hot tub in the garden. Spent plenty of time in the games room with kids and really appreciated the toys for our 1 year old. Can’t wait to stay again.”

Richard, October 2019

“Excellent property – clean, comfortable and well equipped. Jill who looks after the property extremely nice and helpful. Location a bit rural – excellent if you want a quiet country retreat – but facilities at the house mean no need to go far and the hot tub and games room very handy – although equipment in the latter could do with a bit of up-dating. Would definitely recommend and go again.”

David, October 2019

“Very well equipped cottage with a pleasant and helpful host in Jill.”

David, September 2019

“Loved this weekend break would definitely go back. Lovely house and facilities, very clean! Rural setting but only 20min drive into Colchester. Host who showed us around friendly and helpful.”

Melissa, September 2019

“Jill was a wonderful host and extremely helpful!The cottage itself was lovely, spacious and with nothing to want for! We had a bbq in the garden, used the hot tub and swimming pool and the games room. Can’t recommend this place enough and we’re looking forward to coming back!”

Nadia, July 2019

“Lovely cottage close to where Constable painted the ‘Hay Wain’. Comfortably housed our 6 (with a twin room spare) . Two rooms are en suite with shared bathroom for the rest. Dog friendly secured back garden which finds the Hot Tub and outbuilding games room. The Hosts live next door and are super helpful. minor point – Nothing has been left available to clear up any spills – no mops or brooms etc. but you do have access to washing machine dryer and ironing board etc – paid a lot of money for just a weekend hence VFM is lower”

John, May 2019

“Lovely, clean. Charming place! Only downer was the hot tub not getting hot enough & the games room being cold!”

Elisha, March 2019

“Had a great time and there was plenty of things to do. It was very cosy and warm and the heating was available whenever you wanted it, there was no set times. Cannot fault the place. If there were any issues the care taker is always available to deal with the problem and is also very friendly”

Humzah, January 2019

“Great weekend away. Jill and Steve were lovely and very accommodating. Lots of personal touches. Kids loved it too!”
