We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rookwoods. The cottage is warm and welcoming with lots of books, interesting pictures and nice comfortable chairs - a great place to relax. The garden is enclosed and was much enjoyed by our spaniel. The boot room is incredibly useful especially if you have a dog and walking boots. All in all, a beautiful and compact cottage.
Mrs Cox

Beautiful main ensuite bedroom with under floor heating. Very comfy beds in both rooms. Shower room and boot room also have underfloor heating. Cottage comfortably warm, we didn't need to light the fire. Hairdryer in the drawer was a nice touch but difficult to use as it has a continental plug. Kitchen poorly equipped with unmatched crockery. Only one sharp knife. Nearly useless tin opener. A soup plate cracked when we put soup in it. A casserole dish would be a good addition. There is a microwave but not simple to use. Hardly any cupboard space and fridge very small with tiny icebox. Extractor fan didn't work but we knew dinner was ready when the fire alarm went off. We opened the windows when cooking. On the patio a shabby two seater bench and and table. Garden is secure for dogs who enjoyed the new sniffs. Patio door difficult to close and only the outside door in the main bedroom has a handle on the outside. Steep steps to second bedroom which grandson loved. Owners dogs appeared at the door several times. Other than that the place is quiet. Area is pretty and the Bell in Castle Hedingham is dog friendly with good food and the Henny Swan is wonderful. Dogs were not allowed in the paddocks even on leads.

We liked the location, the lovely huge double bed and superb enclosed large garden for our dog. Overall this cottage was excellent.
