Our one bed cottage is in a quiet lane just off Dedham High Street. Dedham and its surrounding area is officially an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Just over an hour by train from London it's the perfect spot for a weekend retreat with fresh air and beautiful unspoiled countryside. If guests wish to bring a dog with them then this needs to be agreed in advance. In most cases we will allow it, but will require an additional payment of £20/night and a refundable pet deposit of £150.

Lovely place, really enjoyed our stay and the location was fabulous in Constable Country. Had a lovely meal at the Boathouse, and an incredible meal at the Sun Inn. Great walks on our doorstep too. The host was excellent, fab communication and very helpful.

Lousie was a great host - the cottage is lovely and was very clean when we arrived - with everything we needed. Check in was very easy. And the cottage was right in the heart of the town so a perfect location.

Thanks for your feedback Francoise. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We do our best to keep the base price down for Airbnb guests, while striving to provide freshly laundered high-quality bedding. Typically when two people book they share the double bed, however because you requested to have the sofabed set up we had to provide two sets of bedding. The supplemental charge is to cover additional housekeeping time and laundry costs. We have revised our listing to explain this, hopefully more clearly. In the future, we will also offer guests the option to bring their own bedding. Warm regards, Louise

Good central location and lovely quiet place to stay. Perfect terrace which was lovely for dinner. Parking not a problem if you're out all day and we managed the 2 hour slots easily. Unloading is a bit of a problem if you're on your own as there's nowhere to stop while you unload…

Thanks for your feedback Sam. Sorry, I forgot to mention that it's okay for you to pull up alongside the cottage and put your hazard lights on to unload at the cottage. As long as you leave space for other cars to come in and out of Princel Lane. We sometimes can offer parking at our other property, but because your stay was during peak summer time we were fully booked. As mentioned, If guests want to leave their car for longer than two hours then there is the Mill Lane car park just 5 minutes walk away which is only £4/day. Dedham village is so well equipped that you could spend a whole weekend here car-free - as you say we have a great choice of gastropubs within walking distance and the all of the shops on the High Street. Kind regards, Louise

This is a well maintained cottage in the heart of the village of Dedham. No need to use the car once parked as the village has a shop, local café and pubs as well as lots of local walks. Comfy bed and beautiful linen.
