Get a lakeside seat to starry nights and swan-filled waters with this fantastic log cabin in the heart of Essex. This secluded lodge, hidden down a little stone track in the Colne Valley, is like something from the movies. A short drive from Colchester, along country roads, you turn into a private lane and this cosy wooden cabin, perched right on the water's edge, appears as if by magic through the greenwood.
This three-bedroom property sleeps up to six people comfortably in its double bedroom and two twin bedrooms. The lovely, open plan kitchen/lounge/diner is equipped with cooking and washing facilities, and a large table which fits the whole family around it for dinner, as well as comfortable lounge seating for a relaxing evening indoors. What's striking about this property is the large windows throughout, allowing for lots of natural light and stunning views of the lake and surrounding woodland. But the jewel in the crown of this little gem is the decked area to the front of the cabin, overlapping the water's edge, where you can sit of an evening with a glass of something bubbly whilst the sunset reflects on the tranquil lake.
This is the perfect spot for all the family to immerse themselves in nature, and your furry family members are no exception. There's nothing like an early morning stroll along Colne Valley with your canine companion by your side. If you're a fan of fishing, then you're in luck, as fishing this private lake can be arranged with the owners…you'll only have to share your loot with the ducks and swans! Fancy a trip to the seaside? Clacton-on-Sea is only a 45-minute drive away!
