After a tiring day of travelling it was a relief to find such a neat and cosy little house all ready for us. The extra little touches like tea bags and fresh fruit made us feel so welcome. The beds are comfortable, the house is warm and the kitchen is well-equipped. The owners are easy to communicate with and made sure that we were settled in for our longer stay. In terms of location you couldn't ask for a better spot! A beautiful park just down the road, town centre with bus stops just a few minutes' walk and yet the court is quiet and peaceful. A perfect base for exploring all that Colchester has to offer.
Castellan is a really comfortable bungalow with a spacious layout so convenient for walking to Colchester town centre we loved it. Being able to park the car and leave it in the drive was great. Added bonus of the secluded back garden too. Plenty of hot water, dishwasher and washing machine were great facilities. Booking with Youseph was easy and he kindly answered all my questions prior to booking promptly by email. The welcoming gifts were greatly appreciated! Thank you for a lovely holiday retreat and we would certainly book to stay again.
My husband and I stayed here with our 5 year old and 2 year old we booked it last minute as the original place we booked cancelled on us and I must say it was meant to be this was in such a great location with the castle park right on our doorstep and shops and restaurants a 5 minute walk away. Accommodation was comfortable and clean for what we needed would stay again. The owner was really friendly and we had Prosecco, cakes and milk on arrival which was ideal after a long journey. The only criticism we would make is it would have been ideal if work was done to the garden as it was so hot when we stayed there was no where outside for the children to play when we arrived back from a day out which was needed with the weather being so nice. All in all we had an amazing time and would definitely recommend.
This property is excellent: well located, clean and comfortable, stocked with just about everything we needed. The welcome basket of cream tea, fruit, coffee and prosecco was so enjoyable! The owners also made sure we had fans to beat the heat wave and offered us a change of linen and towels after a week, which is exceptional in a self-catering place. We will definitely return.

We rented this property for 3 months, as we were having some building work done on our existing property.
Right from my first enquiry, the owner was very prompt with his correspondence. Along with this, he was always happy to listen to any extra requests we had and made every effort to meet these.
The property itself is in a fantastic location. I was actually surprised just how close it was to Colchester High Street! It is literally less than a 5 minute walk.
It is clean and very comfortable. I understand that the owner is also in the progress of making some improvements to the property too. This will only make it more appealing!
I would not hesitate to book again!
