About Pheasant Suites

Pheasant Suites is located on Balls Farm, a former working farm featuring a 17th-century farmhouse. Essex countryside surrounds the accommodation and Colchester is just a three-mile drive away.

Three suites are available, all offering a private bathroom and one or two large beds. Self-catering facilities are provided and include a fridge, microwave and hob as well as china, cutlery and glasses. A DVD, television and free Wi-Fi are some of the other mod cons.

The suites have their own private entrance and parking area separate from the owner’s residence. The privacy and quiet afforded by the accommodation makes it particularly suitable for honeymooners.

Tea, coffee, milk, bottled water and biscuits are provided. A mile away in Elmstead Market, The Old Forge Café serves breakfast and sandwiches.

Essex University Campus is a five-minute drive and the popular Colchester Zoo, which houses big cats and primates, is ten miles away.

Positive Reviews

Excellent standard of accommodation

Guests found little to fault the quality of the accommodation at Pheasant Suites. The rooms are cleaned to a very high standard and there aren't any nasty surprises waiting for guests when they arrive. Guests also like the large, comfortable beds and the generously-sized baths which allow maximum relaxation.

Lovely location

If you are looking for a peaceful retreat in the middle of the countryside, then you'll find Pheasant Suites hard to beat. Guests report that they loved the relaxed and quiet location and the beautiful views over fields. They also enjoyed watching the local wildlife such as partridges and pheasants which live in the area. Those with more energy welcomed the opportunity to take a stroll around the nearby reservoir which provided the perfect backdrop.

Excellent amenities

According to feedback, it seems that the owners of Pheasant Suites do their best to make sure that guests feel at home. They provide plenty of little extras such as tea and coffee making facilities, bottled water and biscuits which guests appreciate. Toiletries are included and guests have a choice of DVDs to watch. Tourist information leaflets and takeaway menus are supplied and these also come in handy.

Negative Reviews

No breakfast provided

The only issue guests had with Pheasant Suites was the fact that breakfast isn't now provided. The hotel management explains that this is due to a recent illness and will advertise the accommodation as apartments rather than bed and breakfast for the foreseeable future. Hopefully, breakfast will make a return at some point.
