“Lovely annex apartment in peaceful and quiet rural location” This two bedroomed annex apartment is separate from the main house. It is decorated to a high standard, was well equipt, had everything we needed - it was just what we wanted for a bit of relaxing down time. It is local to some lovely quaint market towns if you want to get out and about, with great walks straight from the door and only a 10 minute walk to the next village which has a couple of pubs, 2 takeaways and a little shop. With a really lovely garden - we ate outside on the decking for breakfast and dinner - a real treat. Chris and Eppie are really lovely, and helpful if you need anything. I hope to be back in the future.

Why Essex?

A stunning East Anglian county with London to the west and the coast to the east, with a range of points of interest across the gradient from urban sprawl to rural coastline. Book a holiday rental in Essex and see a different side of England every day!

About Essex

This large county is sure to have something for everyone. Whether you're looking for some seaside fun on sunny beaches; to explore the open, green countryside, stopping off in quaint pubs; to foray into outer London; or to explore local historical sites, Essex is a charming place to seek a varied holiday that'll please the whole family.

What to Do

Head into the town of Basildon to see the Glass Bell Tower - the first glass bell tower in the world.

Colchester Zoo has some of the greatest collections of cats and primates in Europe, and is an award-winning attraction to boot!

Top Essex Travel Tips

Essex is a large county, so to make the most of your trip and experience everything, you'd be best off with a car. Whilst public transport is good in the big towns, the more rural areas can be hard to get to this way.

To experience a little bit of everything whilst surrounded by beautiful scenery, book your next holiday rental in Essex.
