    Elmstead Market 2.5 miles. This beautifully presented cottage adjoins the owner's property, and is situated in the hamlet of Great Bromley, close to the Essex village of Elmstead Market. It is an ideal spot for families and friends to relax and unwind, with a great selection of places to explore and enjoy on your doorstep.

    Mrs Child – 1 Aug 2019

    Mrs Cantes – 1 Oct 2018
    " They provided a lovely foodie welcome pack and the accommodation was spacious, well kept and furnished and bright and modern. The bungalow was privately situated but close enough to major road links enabling us to visit many places of attraction in a short distance, eg RHS Hyde Hall, Beth Chatto garden, Nation Trust properties, craft centres. The countryside and villages, particularly over the Suffolk border, were beautiful. Fortunately the weather during the whole week was glorious. "
