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. The large rustic dining table will seat 12 from which you can see the woodburner. To the side of the woodburner are a couple of sofas either side of the largest coffee table we could find! Lamps have been dotted around the room to give the perfect atmosphere 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.
