"Peartree Cottage Bed and Breakfast in Colne Engaine, Essex"

Jill and Chris are delighted to welcome you to Peartree Cottage, our 17th century home in rural Essex

Accommodation and prices

Originally two cottages, dating back to around 1700, the heavily beamed property is now one family home which we feel lends itself to bed and breakfast.

There are two double bedrooms both traditionally furnished, and with views over the open countryside. 

One double bedroom has its own cozy sitting room and staircase, large bathroom containing WC, washbasin, shower and Victorian style bath. 

There is also a further separate WC and washbasin.

The second double bedroom is fitted out with its own ensuite with large shower, WC and washbasin.

Breakfast can be taken in the newly built garden room overlooking countryside views and our garden, or in the farmhouse style kitchen.

Guests are also welcome to use the large family sitting room complete with wood-burner!


Bed and breakfast based on two sharing a double room from £70 to £75 per night.

Single occupancy in double room is from £45 to £50 per night.

Unfortunately we do not have the facility to accept payment by credit card.

The local area

Colne Engaine is a very attractive village about one mile from Earls Colne, and 3 miles from Halstead.  There are many eating places we can recommend in the local villages, and within 5 minutes walking distance of our Cottage is the Five Bells Public House and Restaurant – well served by local beers and delicious lunches and evening meals.

The village shop is well stocked with fresh local produce.

Our home is surrounded by glorious countryside and having lived in this beautiful area of Essex for all of our lives we can recommend many countryside walks and cycle paths being keen walkers and cyclists ourselves. We are a convenient stop for a night or two if walking the Colne Valley Path.

Peartree Cottage is well located for the market town of Sudbury and also the Roman town of Colchester famous for its Castle, Museum and shops.  Other local attractions include Constable country, Colchester Zoo, Chappel Steam railway, the historic villages of Finchingfield, Lavenham and Long Melford to name but a few.  Mainline station to London is a short distance away.
