We are open to guests and have put in place measures to ensure social distancing is possible. These measures include offering self-catering in the annexe, only having one set of guests to eat in our large farmhouse kitchen at a time, and thoroughly disinfecting between guests. If you would like to know more about the steps we have taken to ensure your safety, give us a call on 01206 735166.
Located in the village of Peldon, close to historic Colchester, Mersea Island and the North Essex Coast, Ransomes Bed and Breakfast was a traditional farm house built in the 17th Century and boasts timber beamed ceilings. The house has been sympathetically extended and the large kitchen houses an Aga for wonderful breakfasts!
We have one super king size room with ensuite bathroom in the main house. In the Annexe, set up for families and groups of friends, we can accommodate four with one double and one twin room. There is a sofa bed in the lounge for extra sleeping accommodation if required.
Our breakfast consists of all locally sourced produce prepared by Andrew on his Aga; please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements before your visit. Our Full English breakfast includes field mushrooms, local pork sausages, tomatoes, Aga-fried bread and eggs; vegetarian option is available if requested. Cereals, toast with local Tiptree jam, fresh fruit, tea and coffee are also on the table.
Please note we are a non-smoking household but you are welcome to light up outside.
Wifi is now available in all our rooms, with a higher connection speed.
