This luxurious barn conversion makes a great base for exploring Constable Country and the stunning scenery that was the artists inspiration.

This luxurious barn conversion makes a great base for exploring Constable Country and the stunning scenery that was the artists inspiration.

Enjoy peace and seclusion in this lovely, detached barn conversion, in the grounds of the owner’s home, situated all on one level. The Bull Pen is perfectly located for exploring the Essex countryside, with many quaint villages as well as plenty of walking and cycling opportunities. Nearby Dedham, nestled on the River Stour, offers an array of inns, restaurants and Georgian architecture. Ideal for nature lovers, Stour Valley, in the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is close by, where you can discover the different flora and fauna that reside here.
If you don’t want to travel far, but still want to see a plethora of wildlife, the garden pond attracts a whole host of different species. Or why not take a seat on the patio, light up the barbecue and enjoy dining al fresco whilst admiring the far reaching views across the countryside. When the sun isn’t shining, head back inside and enjoy a home cooked meal.
Wooden beams highlight whitewashed walls in the open plan living area which oozes with character and charm. Appreciate a meal by candlelight in the intimate dining area, prepared in the well-equipped kitchen area, complete with all you need to whip up a tasty treat. Once bellies are full and an evening of relaxation takes over, relax in the beautifully furnished living area. Warm your toes in front of the wood burner as you catch up on your favourite shows on the 32” Smart TV.
Savour in all that this humble abode has to offer and head into the bathroom with underfloor heating, fill the tub with bubbles and soak all your cares away. When it’s time for bed, retire to the luxurious bedroom, furnished with your comfort in mind. Lay your head on the fluffy pillows on the sumptuous kingsize bed and fall into deep slumber. There’s no better place to enjoy a romantic escape with your loved one.

    This is probably the nicest cottage we have ever stayed in. The cottage was decorated very nicely and with good quality furnishings. Some lovely touches included a cake and real flowers on arrival. The property is located next to the owner's house but is very private with its own garden overlooking fields.

    Excellent cottage, I stayed here during the 'Beast from the East' and there are not many holiday cottages that would have kept me so warm and comfortable. Very well equipped whatever time of the year you are staying and an interesting part of the country to visit. The lane and track to the cottage were a bit of a challenge in the snow but would not be a problem any other time of year and the rural nature of the cottage would be a bonus.
