Self-Catering in Castle Hedingham
Hedingham Castle was built by Aubrey de Vere II in around 1140, using the Archbishop of Canterbury as his architect. Now the home of the Lindsay family, direct descendants of the de Veres and Earls of Oxford, the Castle towers over the very attractive, largely medieval and Tudor, village of Castle Hedingham on the Essex/Suffolk border, with its quaint pubs, restaurants and shops. The Castle and the private 18th century mansion are surrounded by beautiful grounds which include woods, a lake and beautiful walks and are home to a wide variety of birds, wildfowl, flora and fauna. Garden Cottage, in its own mature, private garden has been lovingly refurbished to provide comfortable, well-equipped accommodation for up to five people.
Garden Cottage is a two storey cottage with ground floor entrance hall, sitting room with large bay window and TV/DVD player, dining room, shower room with WC/WB, and kitchen. The well-equipped kitchen, with large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, electric oven and gas hobs, has a small breakfast table and leads to a rear lobby, with concealed washer/dryer, that leads into the attractive, mature garden.
First floor: Stairs to the first floor lead to a landing off which are one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and a small single bedroom (4’6” bed), all with attractive curtains and bed linen. Also off the landing is the new bathroom with large, double-ended bath with hand shower, WC/WB and cupboard. The cottage is centrally heated throughout.
Outside: Private mature garden with park and woodland views. Terrace and sitting out furniture.
Garden Cottage is approached through Hedingham Castle’s parkland with its own private gravel drive and parking outside the cottage.
Guests in Garden Cottage can take advantage of complimentary entry to the several Medieval and Jousting events that take place in the grounds over several summer week-ends.
