Luxury cottages in Essex

Some of the most exclusive holiday homes in Essex are in rural areas, down leafy lanes where cottages back onto open fields.  From this blissful setting, you can venture out through Constable Country and recapture the scenery he valued, go to the coast, visit gardens, Colchester Castle, Zoo, antique shops and fairs and generally have a good time.

Essex is one of the most underrated luxury cottage holiday destinations. It may not have a national park to its name but it does have some gorgeous gardens to visit including RHS Hyde Hall near East Hanningfield, the Beth Chatto garden near Colchester and an entire circuit of gardens that open their doors to the public during the summer for charity.

Sailing is extremely popular on the coast and rivers. There really are some excellent theatres and cinemas across the county, good high end restaurants for fine dining and incredible shopping opportunities. The flat plains and fens of Essex hold a good number of nature reserves, interesting places to walk and spot birds. Epping and Hatfield Forests are the two largest pieces of woodland, there are also a number of commons and parks that are knee deep in bluebells in early May.

We hope we’ve inspired you to book a luxury cottage in Essex, you may have the privilege of staying in a half-timbered ancient dwelling or a pargetted colour washed cottage in this special part of East Anglia.
