Excellent base to visit Dedham and surrounding area - there is no washing machine or dryer at the property and no outdoor drying space so this could be a problem during wet weather ?

The property was really quaint and in an excellent location for the beautiful village of Dedham. Dedham has all the amenities with shops, a butchers, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants and some lovely walks from the front door. We would visit the village again. The bed in the cottage was a little uncomfortable but other than that really cosy.

Warm and comfy with a good bathroom and unusually - no skimping on toilet rolls! Delicious home baked cookies from owner! However, sorry to say but cleaning needs to be more thorough. For example - In main bedroom: cobwebs in corners and mirror very smeared. Overall though - very acceptable and met our needs well. Thank you.

This cottage is adorable and very cozy. The location is excellent with the Main Street only a couple of minutes away. You have a small supermarket, some pubs and a church very close by. There are some crafty type shops also nearby. The street is very quiet and close by is Flatford which is just stunning!
