Quality Holiday Cottages, Elmstead Market, Colchester, Essex

Bird’s Farm has been the home of five holiday cottages for many years and we have been welcoming guests since 2008, when we became the owners. Although Birds Farm is no longer a working farm, its farming heritage is evident throughout the accommodation. All of our cottages have wooden beams, which hint at its earlier use.

Bird's Farm Holiday Cottages, Colchester, EssexOne of our cottages is within the main barn, as is the reception and games room. At the rear of the barn is a communal courtyard, surrounded by the other cottages, all of which are on ground level.  All benefit from having double glazing and thermostatically controlled electric heating.
