The Cart Lodge at Lee Wick Farm sleeps up to eleven. Situated alongside our livery yard; a peaceful location away from the main farm.
Excellent family base for Essex and Suffolk coastline, countryside and tourist attractions.
The Cart Lodge has a large entrance hall from which there is a large utility room (washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer), leading from the entrance hall is the kitchen, dining room and the large lounge.
The accommodation offers a large downstairs family bedroom (double and single beds) with en suite shower room all with full wheelchair access. On the first floor there are two twin rooms, one double room with en suite and a large gallery with sofa bed. The views over the marshes and Colne / Blackwater estuaries are excellent from the gallery.
The Cart Lodge is set within a now partly redundant farm yard at the end of a quite lane, 1.6 miles from the village centre where there are numerous services including three pubs, post office, two shops, three restaurants, hairdressers and a florist to name some.
Bus routes run to both Clacton on Sea (5.9 miles) and Colchester (13.7 miles) from here. Colchester, Britain's oldest recorded town offers much for those interested in architecture, history and shopping plus a very good Zoo.
There are pleasant walking & cycling opportunities around the farm, village and nearby countryside. Fishing at our reservoir is included (rod licence required), passes for nearby nature reserves are included, there are superb bird watching opportunities (regular sightings of the once rare Marsh Harrier for example).
Peaceful secluded location.
Great location for exploring the area.
