“Peaceful and welcoming”
Reviewed October 8, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Stayed in the Cart Lodge with my elderly mother and it made a great base while we visited various local friends, and a nice welcoming place to return to each day and relax after our activities. It was very comfortable and clean, with a modern and very well equipped kitchen. It was also beautifully warm, with both the heating, and the sun streaming in every afternoon, so we didn't end up using the wood-burning stove, but it would be a lovely cosy addition in the winter.

The only slight downside was I found the sofa bed a little uncomfortable, as the bar across the middle dug into hips/thighs. Sleeping diagonally lessened the pressure, but would not really be possible if there were two adults using it. Putting two thick books under the foot of the bed to lift it, so the bar was less pronounced, helped quite a bit (-but a pity I only thought of this in the middle of the last night !)

Anyway, we both really enjoyed our stay and would be happy to visit again, and to recommend it to friends. Jason & Carmel have done a great job in converting the old farm buildings and giving them a new lease of life.

Thank you for letting us know about the sofa bed. It now has a new mattress so hopefully you will visit again to check it out.

“Peaceful rural retreat”
Reviewed July 5, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Quiet and comfortable, the Cart Lodge was an ideal base for exploring Essex. Beth Chatto's garden and RHS Hyde Hall are within easy reach and Heybridge Basin is well-worth a visit. Jason has done an amazing job converting the old farm buildings. He and Carmel were very welcoming. Oh, and the eggs from the chickens were much appreciated!
