Big Cottages & Group Accommodation in Colchester

Colchester was once Britain's First City and is the former capital of Roman Britain, so this city has a rich history dating back over 2,000 years. Now a thriving modern town, Colchester has so much on offer including museums and galleries, historic buildings and heritage sites, great entertainment, cycling, and walking routes, and great places to shop, eat and drink.

We have the largest selection of big cottages in Colchester for large groups to suit all budgets and requirements. If you're planning a holiday with your whole family, we've got cottages with large gardens for your kids to run around in, or if you're with a big group of friends, we've got modern farmhouses and converted barns. Whatever you're looking for, your perfect holiday cottage is just a few clicks away!

Beyond the city centre, you'll find picturesque villages, Mersea Island, and one of England's top wildlife attractions; Colchester Zoo. Situated at the gateway to East Anglia, and a short trip away from the coast, Colchester is the perfect destination for a well-deserved break for large groups.

From the glitz and the glamour of Essex city life to the calm and tranquillity of its coastal towns, Essex and the South East is one of the most diverse areas to visit in the UK. With so much to choose from, check out some of our most popular locations in the area from Southend-on-Sea to Maldon to discover your perfect escape.

Best price guarantee

No one can beat our prices.

Best price guarantee

We partner with the largest cottage providers to offer you over 30,000 properties on one website. Our cottages are professionally managed by these partners and payments are taken by them, but rest assured, by booking via The Snaptrip Family you'll pay the lowest possible price for your trip.

We never charge you more than you would pay booking directly on the partner's site and if you become a Big Cottages member you can save even more. If you find a property priced lower anywhere else on the internet (we’d be amazed if you do), simply email us at marketing@big-cottages.com and we'll refund you the difference.
