Lovely cottage and great location. Tracy met me at the gate and showed me around the cottage. Nice views over the peaceful garden with seating to enjoy an alfresco lunch or drink and read a book. Just be aware of the low doors and narrow stairway only banged my head a few times.

We had a wonderful week using Great Holland Mill as a base to explore Essex and Suffolk. The property was immaculate, well=equipped and in a fantastic location. Tracy and her human and animal family made us feel very welcome and were really helpful with knowledge about the history of their property and the surrounding area. The addition of green woRead moreodpeckers, 8 baby partridge, bats and a jay observed in the garden were an added bonus. We would definitely like to visit Great Holland Mill again. Hide

Set in a secluded garden the cottage is ideal for couples. The garden has tables and chairs for dining and the view of the wildlife makes it more interesting. The cottage is well appointed and has a good range of equipment if you actually like self catering on holiday and we do. Lovely walks and great beaches. We would definitely go back
