What a find this was! Worth trawling the internet for!
We stayed here for our Anniversary/husband's birthday, ...and as it turned out, our daughter's promotion!
What a beautiful cottage to stay and relax in. The cottage is very well-equipped with everything you need for a short or even longer stay. It was spotlessly clean and well appointed, the lounge comfy and cosy, as was the bedroom we selected for ourselves, and the whole house is light and airy.
A 'welcome pack' that was more than expected and the fresh flowers on the dining table added a lovely touch.
We had a really relaxing and enjoyable weekend, only leaving the cottage to walk down to the village and frequent the tea rooms and shop. ( Our favourite was the Picture Pot tea room where the staff are very welcoming ).
We hope to return for a longer stay some time.
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.
