This was our second visit to the Garden Lodges. Debbie kindly collected us from the station and is a warm and friendly host. Excellent facilities, clean, very comfortable and a beautiful, peaceful place to stay. We both slept soundly and would not hesitate to recommend

Stayed overnight before catching ferry next day. The chalets are very well equipped with everything you could need including basic essentials like milk, bread, butter, jam and cereals. The beds were very comfy and I had a great nights sleep. It is so quiet as you are well away from the road although I don't think it gets a lot... More

This proved to be a perfect spot for exploring this part of the Essex coast, there are a range of eating places in Thorpe Le Soken and a health spa opposite. Frinton and Clacton are just a short drive away. We received a warm welcome and the reasonable cost included cereal, bread, jam, yogurts and milk for breakfast. A good... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the garden lodges' Owners were kind, caring and friendly. The lodges were spotlessly clean, well equiped and ideal for a retreat. cannot fault in any way! Breakfast is provided in the privacy of the self catering lodges, which for us was ideal. For cat lovers, you will be in heaven, as the owners beautiful... More

The Premier Inn was overpriced this time of the year, so looked for an alternative. You never know what you are going to get when you go elsewhere, but this turned out to be a great place to stay. Everything clean and tidy, the owners very friendly and made it a real pleasure to stay here. Would definitely return if... More

Second visit to The Garden Lodges. Our accommodation was ready: clean and tidy. Nice to be, also, welcomed by the feline occupants! Sadly, our visiting neighbours smoked their cigarettes outside our Lodge; probably because there was an ashtray on the garden table. Sorry Steve and Debbie it's a bit of a niggle but you advertise the Lodges a "NO SMOKING"... More

Stayed here for just one night while touring Clacton-on-Sea, nice idea of offering breakfast in self-catering accommodation but with a bit more space and freedom than a hotel room. Well equipped, although settee a little uncomfortable. Very reasonably priced and nothing too much trouble to the owners.
