Christmas with a family including dog
We booked a dog friendly property for Christmas suitable for two adults, three children and a spaniel. We knew nothing about the cottage or Hadleigh village apart from what we had found on the internet. It turned out to be a delightful experience. The cottage is a conversion at the end of a stable block, it is in the grounds of a large house but quite a way from the main house itself. It meant that the dog could be allowed to run free away from roads. The cottage is well equipped, we managed to cook Christmas dinner for five but ran out of serving dishes and ended up improvising with dessert bowls - fine until we came to Christmas pudding and found we had leftover veg still in the dishes. Pudding and cream was served in tea cups to the hilarity of the children. The cottage is decorated in a mismatched country house style. The bed linen was white and pristine - we didn't allow the spaniel upstairs. The condition downstairs reflects a property suitable for dogs and children, perfectly clean but showing signs of wear and tear. We were left wood for the wood burner and found milk, eggs and bacon in the fridge. Downstairs was cosy but upstairs quite cold, the children made use of the extra bed linen provided. It would have been warmer if we had not kept the door between upstairs and downstairs firmly closed because of the dog. There were additional electric convector heaters but we didn't use them. Outside was minus six and very frosty! The surrounding countryside provides excellent and varied dog walking. We are planning a return visit in the summer.
Ideal getaway for a week of peace and quiet in the country
We arrived 23rd December with my wife, 3 kids (16,14 & 10) and an energetic spaniel for a 7 night break over the Christmas holiday.
The setting t is fantastic, with great countryside walks for the dog and a 10-15 minute stroll through the grounds into Hadleigh itself. We live within earshot of the M25, so it took a little while for the kids to adapt to the darkness and quiet.
The cottage itself has real character was very clean and is furnished appropriately for a family.
Although it didn't matter to us as ball gowns and suits were not required, the only potential downside for some would be the limited hanging space for clothes, but there is ample drawer space.
Downstairs was very cosy in the evenings, the wood burner being a welcome addition on the nights it reached -6C outside. Upstairs was a little cooler but still very comfortable and the kids had to use the extra provided blankets to keep warm on the colder nights. Overall there was plenty of space so it did not feel we were on top of each other.
Would we go back, well we might just have to so that we can can compare the brisk winter walks with summer strolls to the excellent pubs in the village
The cottage was stunning, the inside was lovely and very comfortable, and the gardens and grounds were a joy. It was peaceful and relaxing. We really liked the chance to bring our dog and having such lovely walks from the door. Would recommend this cottage.
Had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Lovely quiet hide away. Cottage had everything we needed. Weather was good throughout to either; lounge in the back garden, walk around the grounds with the dog, including plenty of footpaths for walks, exactly what we was looking for. The village itself is quaint with a Morrison's just a minute away from the High Street if needed. Was greeted by the owner a little while after we arrived which was a very nice and welcomed gesture. All in all had a very good week and would make this a regular holiday.
Gardener's Cottage is generally well-presented cottage with everything needed for a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings.
