This delightful, holiday cottage is attached to the owner’s period property and its name refers to the stunning floor-to-ceiling window in the bedroom. It is set in an AONB in the Dedham Vale where the artist John Constable painted many of his famous scenes. Set in the owner’s grounds, with its own private area of garden, it is the ideal choice for a romantic break and is in an excellent area for walking and cycling. The nearby Roman town of Colchester has an excellent range of shops, as well as a zoo and castle. The peaceful Stour Estuary, Maningtree, and Mistley are a 6-minute drive, whilst London is less than an hour away by train. An excellent location to explore all the delights of both Essex and Suffolk. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

Large living/dining room with kitchen area and French doors. First floor: Double bedroom with
6ft bed, floor-to-ceiling window and vaulted ceiling. Shower room with toilet.

    We had a lovely holiday in Ardleigh Heath which was ideally situated for the places we wanted to visit. Our scores reflect the fact that when it rained, and it did rain very hard, the rain actually poured in at the French windows and the bottom of the bedroom window. We would not want to stay there in the winter because the boiler was noisy as the bedroom wasn’t separated by any doors and would not want to stay there in the heat of the summer because the bedroom did not have any opening window. For the time of the year we stayed, it was OK.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. I am sorry that you encountered some problems whilst at our property. The problem with the leak has now been addressed, and for the warmer months, there is a Dyson cool fan available.
