Tranquil, high class accommodation
We had a lovely few days at the Hay Barn at Jepcrack’s. The welcome and care we received from Carmel and Jason was excellent and the Barn had everything we needed during our stay. En-suite bedrooms and open plan living with lots of space to spread out. Tranquil Essex countryside with lots of footpaths to explore with the dog (who was made v. welcome) and close to local shops and restaurants. We look forward to returning.
We were met by Carmel. The Shire Barn was absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. It was so well equipped too. Well fitted bathrooms, spacious rooms, comfy beds and bedding. I loved opening the door in the bedroom in the morning overlooking the wheat field while having my cup of tea. We really loved the hot tub and appreciated the tub towels. We enjoyed sitting outside, bbq, and plenty of seating. It was an opportunity to rest and spend quality family time together. We went for a little wander to Promenade Park but didn’t feel the need to go elsewhere as we wanted to enjoy the accommodation. Waitrose delivered and we had a super time. It was perfect. Thank you.
Beautiful accommodation with character set in the fields
Great place to stay to relax and enjoy with a group of people. We enjoyed the walks and the local pubs and the hot tub overlooking the fields was a bonus. The barn is beautifully decorated and very homely with a lovely fireplace. Our stay there to celebrate a special 90th birthday was perfect.
