Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Quiet,spacious house in the Essex countryside. Very well equipped. Huge garden. Toodlers need watching with water-hazards in garden and open stairs, but otherwise good for kids. Run out of wood for fire in living room after 2 days, but otherwise cosy. Dec 2012.
  2. Nice spacious cottage a mile or more out of the village of Feering. Lots to see in the area and London can be reached by train from Kelvedon in about 50 mins. July 2012.
  3. Excellent, very comfortable would certainly use it again if appropriate. Have already mentioned it to several people. The children were well catered for and enjoyed feeding the chickens. April 2012.
  4. Great house, beautiful location. Looking to book it again in the near future. Feb 2012.
  5. A very comfortable home from home. The children loved the outdoor space, especially the football pitch and feeding the chickens! Jan 2012.
  6. The children loved the football pitch and feeding the chickens! We all loved the visiting wildlife. The countryside was lovely, and the home was comfortable and spacious enough for a family of 6. And the loft provided many wonderful books and videos from which to choose. July 2011.
  7. A comfortable farmhouse in a quiet setting. Having hens to feed and fresh eggs add something extra to the holiday. As always, the owners are very helpful and welcoming. Dec 2010.
  8. The cottage was so private; no neighbours and spacious. Aug 2010.
  9. The cottage was beautiful, in a stunning rural location yet still only 10 minutes from essential services. Resident chickens duly obliged with fresh eggs for us daily! July 2010.
  10. Lovely house, spacious grounds. We loved the fact that there were chickens on the property!!! Although it’s "in the country", the village of Feering is just around the corner as is Kelvedon, close for shopping and eating out. March 2010.
  11. Good property with complete services like laundry machine, dryer, dishwasher etc. Only the heating of the bathroom did not work sufficiently. Feb 2010.
  12. Very well appointed, in a quiet setting. Having the chickens with their fresh eggs adds an extra pleasure to a stay. We have returned for our 4th stay over Christmas and have already booked it for next year! Dec 2009.
  13. Location, views and property all A*. Sept 2009.
  14. It was perfect for a young family with plenty of outdoor space. Aug 2009.
  15. Clean and with enough accessories to make it homely. The property had chicken and fresh eggs which was a real bonus for the children. Aug 2009.
  16. If you want a home away from home, Popps cottage is perfect for it. We have never felt more like at home on holiday. None of us wanted to leave the place. A week is too short a time to stay there. June 2009.
  17. Popps Cottage was much more than we expected. The gardens and the football field were excellent. The 2nd floor video lounge turned out to be a fabulous place for our 9 and 11year old children. It was full of videos, books, board games, toys...and the kids just loved to spend time there. Feeding the hens was much fun. Lovely welcome pack. Situated in a very peaceful location, yet only a few minutes away from the highway, so you can easily start your day out and visit the zoo, amusement park, castle, beaches etc. The railway tavern in the nearby town of Kelvedon serves superb food. June 2009.
  18. This was our second stay at Popps Cottage and it was wonderful again, just as we remembered. A wonderful property, perfect for a relaxing break. March 2008.
  19. Most suitable for the purpose required. Our thanks to the owner for making us fell so welcome without even meeting him or his family! Jan 2008.
  20. Location was excellent for a quiet week away. We had easy access to all the attractions of interest and a lovely farmhouse to return to at the end of a busy day out and about. Sept 2007.
