“Perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

We stayed at Poplars Farmhouse in February 2013 and would return in a heartbeat!

Initially we were welcomed by Paul who gave us a good introductory tour of the house and then he invited us to relax in the guest’s lounge room with a lovely pot of tea. We appreciated his thoughtfulness after what had been a long and tiring day of travel.

The guests lounge room was a good size with everything you could wish for. It was warm with comfy couches and cushions, offered a good selection of magazines and books, had a TV and a wide selection of DVD’s, free Wi-Fi, writing desk and gorgeous views out of the windows!

As we were enjoying our cuppa, David came home and again we were warmly welcomed. At this point we also met Spike; the resident dog. For those of you who do not like dogs or are allergic to dogs, have no fear as Spike keeps to himself and does not encroach of your living space.

We stayed in the ‘beamed room’ which, as the name suggests, features old exposed timber beams. It was a wonderful warm and spacious room full of character. The bed was a good size, extremely comfortable with quality linen and pillows. We had a wall mounted TV, a few books to browse through and coffee and tea making facilities. It was a nice touch to be offered fresh milk as opposed to long life sachets too.

Our ensuite bathroom complimented the beamed room in both spaciousness and décor. We had a bath with an overhead shower and the bathroom was heated which was just heavenly when it was so cold outside.

Breakfast was served in the guest dining room and featured a beautiful, cosy fireplace. The range of breakfast choices on offer was more than adequate and the scrambled eggs were the best I've ever eaten!

Stoke by Nayland is in a lovely location and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the local area. David was invaluable with his knowledge and advice of where to go and what to see. If you’re looking for something nearby for dinner, the B&B is located a short drive away from town and there are two pubs to choose from ‘The Crown’ and ‘The Angel Inn’.

We would highly recommend staying at Poplars Farmhouse for at least two nights to unwind, relax and enjoy what is a delightful and charming B&B in a great location with perfects hosts.

Just got back from spending two nights at this great B&B. David and Paul made us very welcome with a huge pot of tea and biscuits served in their exquisite sitting room when we arrived (and also another when we came back from touring about the area in the freezing weather!) so that's always a good start! The house is very old and spacious and it's so quiet thereabouts you could hear a pin drop in Colchester. We had the Gardenia room with its quirkily-sloping floor (I said the place was old!) and plenty of space to rattle about in. It's all very clean and warmly welcoming. David and Paul are there in the background - always helpful, always good to talk to, always the brilliant mine hosts. If you're into good English breakfasts then you will enjoy their breakfast which is freshly-cooked and served on hot plates - guaranteed to last you until tea-time. The sitting room is great to relax in - there's a TV, plenty of DVDs (watched Love Actually for the umpteenth time and enjoyed it all over again) and heaps of books if you feel like reading. There's wi-fi if you want to catch up on e-mails or browse what to do for your following day's stay. It's a real home from home and I reckon David and Paul have sussed out how to run a darned good B&B. Thanks a million, guys - you were ace!

Really cannot think of anything they could have done to make our stay more perfect! We loved that they had wellies and brollies by the door and insisted we made ourselves at home! We had our wine in their fridge and borrowed appropriate glasses. I had asked for Special Milk as I'm dairy intolerant and instead of being made to feel like an inconvenience, I had my own milk in my own jug! The little extra touches, like fresh milk for drinks, breakfast when you want it and not at a set time, and just the loveliest hosts, make this place special. Loved it.

We spent a relaxing few days in this B&B and loved it. The bedrooms are gorgeous and comfy, David and Paul are friendly and helpful hosts, and the surrounding countryside is lovely. We would definitely recommend this place to others and will be returning there ourselves before long I'm sure.

We had a wonderful and luxurious night at Poplars Farmhouse. David and Paul looked after us exceedingly well and even heated up our picnic and laid out their beautiful dining room table for us to enjoy. A beautiful setting and beautifully appointed house and rooms - a real treat and only 30 minutes down the road for us! Thanks also for the loan of the wellies so we could enjoy a relaxing walk to the village after a very tasty breakfast ..... and gave us gluten free toast to boot. We will definitely be coming back!

We spent some of the best weekends here during our trips to England. The people are very nice and friendly, we felt at home straight away ! The house is fantastic and the bedrooms absolutely wonderful . The food is superb ( there is a huge amount of choice for breakfast to suit everyone ) . The setting is lovely and quiet and we couldn't ask for any better! One thing's for sure , we will be back !

Poplars Farmhouse is truly a beautiful oasis in a modern world. As you step through the door the ancient building seems evoke a tranquillity, which dictates the pace at which you live throughout your stay. The rooms are comfortable, and elegant with very stylish touches. The hosts David and Paul couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful and the breakfast was superb. We stayed for two nights in November 2012, we would definitely recommend it and will certainly be back. Thank you!
