We were so happy to have booked the Old Post Office early this year. The change in lockdown meant we were able to finally get together with our two daughters and their partners after such a challenging time last year. It was also great that Dexter, the dog, was also welcome. The layout of the accommodation was great, with amazing original features and quirky parts, although you need to remember to duck when you come out of the bathroom (something I kept forgetting). Large fridge freezer was a great help as we were able to bring frozen dishes which made catering easier. Despite it b...more
We had an amazing few days away. Perfect for visiting other villages. We loved the garden and outside seating provided, and the weather enabled us to enjoy it too! Our dog also loved the outside space. The welcome pack was very thoughtful and there were even some dog treats. The inside was tastefully done and spotless.
Well equipped cottage in a central location. Welcome basket was a nice touch. Stairs may not be suitable for the elderly.
A lovely, stylish and comfortable apartment in a beautiful setting........... .............. .......
A comfortable week in what is a pleasant cottage but in need of some updating and maintenance. In a good postion for the Dedham Vale but the road through the village can get busy at peak times.

What a find!!! Beautiful cottage in splendid location. Cottage had such a lovely homely feel and provided all we could have hoped for.

The Cartlodge is such a peaceful and tranquil environment it was perfect for a long weekend. You wake up to the beautiful view across lawns, woodland and open country stretching into the distance. Once outside you have a range of beautiful walks along the Stour Path, through Dedham Bale and strolls to lovely villages, Great house, comfortable beds, enormous bath and after a perfect night's sleep, you're ready for another beautiful day. Recommended!
