Dairy House is a 700 acre arable and fruit farm. The house is set in the middle with views of the countryside in every direction. The farmhouse was extended in 1876 into a wonderfully spacious home with large rooms and many typical Victorian ornamentations.
The kettle is always on the boil and there is tea with homemade cakes on arrival and homemade preserves on the breakfast table.
The two ensuite bedrooms are warm and spacious and each has a colour television with remote control and also a drinks tray with an array of teas, coffee and hot chocolate on offer. Fresh flowers, bathrobes, clock radios and comfortable chairs also in the rooms as well as other little extras to make your stay as “home from home” as possible.
Although the house has a completely rural setting, it is just a twenty minute stroll to an excellent pub and shop in the village of Bradfield. We are also just one hour by train to London (Liverpool Street) from Manningtree station (5 miles from here).
Dairy House has a cosy guests sitting room with colour television and a cupboard full of games, as well as a large garden which visitors are welcome to relax in.
Guests are welcome to borrow detailed maps of the surrounding area during their stay.
