Property details

Endymion Lodge is one of five detached luxury lodges, located in idyllic countryside on the Wakes Hall Estate in the breath-taking Colne Valley on the Essex/Suffolk border. On the same site we also offer Brook Lodge (two guests). Each lodge boasts a verandah and soothing hot tub, surrounded by 500 acres of land and walks to the village of Wakes Colne. The historic town of Colchester is 40 minutes away.

Wakes Hall Lodges offer the perfect place to escape the city or your hectic lives. Nature lovers will have a wonderful time taking in the stunning flora and fauna of the delightful countryside. As well as a fishing lake stocked with Carp and Roach, there are an endless number of woodland walks to explore, including the neighbouring willow woodland where the trees are farmed to make cricket bats. Visitors often enjoy a short amble to the local village where there is a shop and post office and a picturesque pub beside the River Colne that serves locally brewed beer. Local beauty salons provide a full range of services for visitors to the lodges, and for those looking for an extra special treat, we can arrange for a fully trained chef to serve up a delectable feast from the comfort of your lodge.

Not sure I want to tell everyone about this place, as want to keep it a secret! Attention to detail in these lodges is absolutely perfect, the contemporary decor and fittings are extremely high quality. It has everything you need in the kitchen and more. Sofa's and beds are extremely comfortable. The lodges are spacious and immaculate. Seriously can't rate this place highly enough and it's worth every penny. I want to move in!
