Words cannot describe how much Paula and her husband Solomon made us feel welcome, right from the start of our 5 week stay we had everything we needed, the rooms were cosy, though sizeable, and the kitchen was very well equipped, even including things like cling wrap, that you don't realise you need until you do! The bedroom was spacious, the bed was extremely comfortable, and thank goodness, the shower was great!! The linen, towels etc were all of good quality, Paula was on hand for anything we required, but unobtrusive in other ways, Castle Hedingham itself is delightful, within easy reach of many historic villages, castles etc, we had many lovely drives through the Essex and Suffolk countryside. By the time we left, we both felt like friends of the family, hopefully we will be back from Australia again next year, and I know where we will be staying!!

Lovely place to stay. Beautiful setting and well appointed accommodation. We were just there overnight for a wedding but wished we could have stayed longer!

This 'Charming Country Retreat' definitely lives up to it's name. This was our first Airbnb experience and it was a perfect choice. We had travelled from our home in Spain to escape the Spanish high temperatures and humidity - a two month break. The cottage, was spacious, very comfortable, full of country charm and it was a delight to see so much greenery and tall trees in the large garden. Ben's mother, Paula, was a 'super host' and couldn't have done more to make our stay so memorable and fun. The village of Castle Hedingham is attractive with many medieval buildings and two good old pubs. We had several very tasty meals at The Bell. It was a perfect destination for visiting family and friends and for driving around the beautiful English countryside which was so lush and green. Thank you Paula - you were a wonderful host and we would love to come back soon to enjoy your hospitality and delightful sense of humour.
