Open plan living area
The heart of the cottage is made up of the large open-plan kitchen/living area. There is a large, well-equipped kitchen where meals can be prepared while friends chat and mingle. From the large rustic dining table you can see the woodburner, which adds warmth and loads of atmosphere. A bit further round are a couple of sofas sat either side of the largest coffee table we could find! Lamps have been dotted around the room to give the perfect ambience for a cosy supper.
Elderflower – Standard king size double
Painted in subtle tones of warm whites with hints of shaded green, Elderflower has a king size bed, walk-in wardrobe, ornamental writing desk and glorious views across the wild meadow and willow plantation. Being west-facing, it is the perfect room to stay in if you want to catch the stunning Essex sunsets.
Honeysuckle - Super king or Luxurious Twin
Whether you’re a couple, solo or traveling with a friend, Honeysuckle is a suitable choice as it features a plush super king bed which can be turned into a spacious twin. Honeysuckle was inspired by the wild honeysuckle that grows in the hedgerows surrounding the cottage; this native plant not only smells beautiful, it also attracts honey bees - a key feature in the room design. Honeysuckle also features two wooden bedside tables, plenty of hanging space and an original headboard crafted by the resident carpenter on the farm.
Forget-me-not - Bunk room
Forget-me-not is the kiddie hub of the cottage. Painted in a deep dark blue with sea-themed artefacts, this bedroom was inspired by the nearby coast line. The room contains a trendy white bunk bed, bedside table, chest of drawers and hanging space.
Foxglove - Super king or luxurious twin
Foxglove is the master bedroom with an en suite shower room; it is styled in shades of pinks mirroring the natural foxglove, which you can find in the garden . The room features a velvety super king size bed which can be turned into a twin, if necessary. The original headboard mirrors the one from Honeysuckle. There are plenty of shelves and lots of hanging space plus a long viewing mirror, so if you are dressing up for an occasion, this bedroom is the perfect choice.
Nettle - Standard king sized double
Whether you’re a couple or traveling solo, Nettle suits both. It features a plush king size bed, cute bedside tables and a trendy upcycled writing desk. If you are lucky enough to be here in the Spring, you will have views onto our cherry orchard surrounded by blossom-filled hedgerows. Nettle, being east-facing, has the best sunrises in the cottage and is the bedroom for any early-birds!
Blackberry – Standard king sized double
Blackberry is our only room situated on the ground floor. It is a beautiful room, decorated in tones of grey, dark blues with hints of white creating an incredibly calm atmosphere. Blackberry also features a writing desk for anyone who is feeling creative. If you do just want to sit back, relax and look out onto the wild flower gardens you might spot a pheasant or hare, both of which frequent the rustic gardens at Meadow Cottage.
