Wood Lodge is a 4-bedroom cottage with Artesian hot tub & enclosed garden that sleeps up to 8 guests on a self-catering basis. We are on the edge of Great Braxted village, perfect for family getaways and friends that bubble.

The space
The accommodation is bright and comfortable with new furniture, hotel standard linen and complimentary plant-based toiletries. We have Ultrafast Wi-Fi, have 4G and offer a flat screen TV, Freesat, books and board games. The cottage has a 1/4 acre enclosed garden on Lea Lane, a country road. There is also a large hot tub available all year, garden table and chairs, coal for the bbq, fire lighters, sunbeds and a hammock in the garden.

The layout of the house is kitchen (no dishwasher), hallway, sitting room and conservatory dining room with double doors out to the garden. There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor with a family bathroom on the first floor there is a double bedroom and a twin bedroom with adult single beds. There is also a shower room. For guests with mobility concerns the entire downstairs is on one level, no steps once inside. There is a lip between the sitting room and the conservatory.

On arrival you will find a range of teas, coffees, hot chocolate, drinks (some with bubbles), snacks and fresh fruit to refresh you after your journey. We also provide ingredients for a full English breakfast you prepare yourself and there is an extensive selection of store cupboard essentials as well as fresh free- range eggs when laid by our hens in the summer so all you need to do is pack your toothbrush, personal items and groceries. There are also hotel standard towels, dressing gowns, slippers and bed linen. The village of Wickham Bishops is 5 minutes by car, it has a well stocked convenience store, and there are several supermarkets, restaurants and takeaways just 10 minutes away.

If you need extra accommodation please take a look at The Studio (on a separate listing), our self-contained mini-flat ideal for 2 guests, it's on the same property, at the bottom of the drive.

We are just 3 minutes by car from Braxted Park Estate and up to 15 minutes from many other luxury wedding venues. Just up the road is our local pub, The Green Man for food and local ales, a base for country walks of various lengths. There are the traditional villages of Kelvedon (we reccommend the Rising Sun pub), Coggeshall and Maldon close by and we are mid-way between the historic towns of Colchester and Chelmsford which are about 12 miles in either direction. In the cottage we also provide lots of information on what to do in the local area.

We enjoy providing a warm welcome and tranquil place for guests to relax. Paul and I have lived here for many years and were drawn to the beauty of the gardens, fields and ancient woodland. In April the ground is carpeted in English bluebells and though the seasons we share our space with a large variety of wild birds and woodland animals. Guests stay for weekend getaways, weddings, hen nights and friends and family celebrations. Your privacy is highly respected, we are contactable via messages till 9.00pm every day. Whilst Covid-19 is present we follow all the Public Health England advice on health, cleaning and distancing and can confidentially assure our guests that the accommodation is rigorously prepared for each and every booking. Our terms are Strict but we are also happy to move your booking to another available date and will honor the price you originally paid.
