The cottage has heaps of character and is in a beautiful location in the stunning village of Finchingfield. The cottage is spacious and is very comfortable for a short or long break. We loved how close it was to Cambridge and Ely. For two to four people, it's perfect as there are two lovely bedrooms. The cottage is well equipped with everything you would need including food essentials. A thoughtful touch. Anna provided helpful information and was quick to respond. It was so lovely to spend our first wedding anniversary at the place where we married! We'll be back!
We have stayed at the North Lodge cottage belonging to Spains Hall Finchingfield for 8 times in as many years. I book the weekend as a birthday present for my wife each year, as its her favourite place to get away. Booking is easy and everyone there couldn't be more helpful.
We leave our kids with the grandparents and off we go. When we arrive in the village we have lunch in the Fox and then drive just a few minutes to the cottage. It is not overlooked by any others and the nearest building is the wonderful old hall itself.
The rooms in the cottage are nicely decorated and always spotless. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare and cook dinner to be eaten in the cosy dining room.
We always take a DVD box set to watch and have finished it by the time we leave, as neither of us want to venture too far away from the cottage.
So if you're looking for a nice place to relax, in nice surroundings, then North Lodge is for you but please not when we want to go.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Wonderful walks in the morning. Enjoyed our Christmas holiday so very much. Lovely cottage. We could not have been more impressed with the amenities and the cleanliness of the cottage.
North Lodge is the perfect rural retreat and probably the nicest location in Essex.
The Lodge has a lovely homely feel, is very comfortable and very clean,excellent heating and has everything you need for a short or long stay.There are nice places to eat within walking distance in the very pretty village of Finchingfield.
The house is set in beautiful grounds, totally stunning. The cottage itself has been done out beautifully, it's very spacious. But the thing that really struck us was the attention to detail. Bread, milk, jams, cereals...the list goes on. Those little things make a world of difference and add to the stay. I can honestly say this is one of the best cottages I have ever stayed in and I've been to a few!
