August can be a sublime month in Essex. The countryside reaches a certain maturity and fullness as harvest time approaches. An Essex country cottage is a wonderful type of holiday home on a hot summer’s day, especially if there is a garden to relax in or to become a real Essex man in control of the barbecue. The holiday cottages, pine lodges and houses on this page all have at least 3 days availability during August. Some may have more. Please click on any Essex property that you are interested in to view all available August dates.

August is a month for lazy weekends, picnics and boating. There are several places for all of these activities at Hanningfield Reservoir where boats may also be hired for fly fishing. Woodland walks and bird watching are another option.

Very pleasant rowing on the River Stour is available in Dedham, north Essex, in Constable Country with the added pleasure of sightseeing in this popular tourist location.
