About Lee Wick Farm
The Cart Lodge and Stable Cottage belong to Lee Wick Farm – a farm still happily operating as such (180 acres of potatoes and a small acreage of cereals) whilst providing holiday accommodation with a fishing club and a livery stables – bring your horse along too - providing a welcoming holiday destination. Sleeping up to 11 the Lodge is away from the daily hub-bub of the farm, Stable Cottage sleeps 4. You're in perfect walking and cycling territory – both around the farm and the local villages, it’s also a fab base for visiting the local coastline, Colchester, Britain's oldest recorded town with architecture, history and shopping on offer, as well as a very good Zoo.
The Away with the Kids review
Lee Wick Farm Holiday Cottages comprise 2 cottages; found in a partly redundant farmyard at the end of a quiet lane. These holiday cottages provide an excellent base for visiting both Essex and Suffolk coastlines, countryside and the local tourist attractions.
The 4 star rated Cart Lodge provides spacious and very well equipped accommodation for your family get-together, similarly it will suit two families as there are independent bedrooms and bathroom facilities on two floors. The Lodge has a Mobility rating of M2 thus all members of your family - young or old - can enjoy this relaxing place. Stable Cottage is again spacious and comfortably furnished and can sleep up to 7.
Both cottages are equipped with crucial items such as TVs and DVD and CD players. The large utility room houses the washing machine, tumble dryer, freezer and clothes-airer. The kitchen is supplied with everything that you might need, including dishwasher, fridge-freezer and microwave.
Cart Lodge has a kitchen and dining room with doors leading out to the enclosed patio area with a bbq ready and waiting to go. The large lounge comfortably seats you all after a busy day sight seeing.
The large downstairs family bedroom has double and single beds and an en-suite. This room has full wheelchair access with direct access from the ramp outside for convenience. The first floor has two twin rooms, a double room with en suite and a family bathroom and separate toilet. The large gallery area with sofa bed provides extra sleeping space, as well as a good chill out zone for the kids - there are also good views over the marshes and the Colne/Blackwater estuaries to be enjoyed from here.
Stable Cottage has rooms all on one floor and comfortably sleeps 4 with a king-size double room and a twin room that may also be configured as a double. Both have en suite shower rooms. A bonus and to keep costs down is that you could easily accommodate extra children with a fold up kids bed in the double bedroom and by using the sofa bed in the lounge.
All bed linen and towels are supplied. A cot is available if required.
The cottages are just 1.6 miles from the village centre of St. Osyth where you'll find the essentials including three pubs, the post office, two shops, three restaurants and others.
You can leave the car behind as bus routes run to both Clacton on Sea (5.9 miles) and Colchester (13.7 miles) . There is a swimming pool at St Osyth beach, a 9 hole golf course at Clacton on Sea and leisure centres with pools at Clacton and Colchester. Colchester is Britain's oldest recorded town so for those of you interested in delving into history and architecture there is lots on offer - equally there is an excellent zoo!
Back at the farm you will find the office located at the top of the lane where you may find Robert ensconced in the family's other business activity of ‘Potato Merchant'. You're invited to go say hello and collect a free sample of spuds!
Pets are welcome - a maximum of two dogs are allowed at any one time.
