Romantic Grade II listed English cottage boasting many original quirky 16th Century features. Full of character and charm resting on the outskirts of the historic Roman city of Colchester.

Built in around 1505, Vine Cottage was once part of an old inn believed to be called ‘The Cock’ and then changing it’s name to ‘Turkey Cock Inn’ in 1722. The cottage is full to the brim with cosy comfort and rustic style, and is the perfect retreat for vacations and staycations.

The space
Full of soft furnishings with comfort in mind. Sit back and unwind after a long day visiting famous historic sites of Stanway, Colchester and the beautiful surrounding areas.

The cottage offers a delightful cosy sitting area in front of the oversized fireplace. The cottage living space is complete with a very rustic country cottage vibe, with original features such as wooden beams and exposed brick throughout.

Enjoy the wifi, smart tv, bluetooth speaker, puzzles, games, books and more.
