'The Little House' ( my grandson's name for it it) is a hidden gem, in the centre of the lovely village of Stock.

It is a detached, converted small barn with its own entrance, key box and allocated parking space in front.

You'll find this space light and airy and very private, decorated with a sailing theme throughout.

There are two village shops (with late opening hours) , a hairdresser and beauty salon, four pubs and a cafe within less than five minutes walk.

The space
Step aboard village life when you come to stay in this newly renovated barn with a nautical theme.

It's a tranquil space and l'm sure you'll feel the peaceful ambiance as soon as you enter.

You can snuggle down and leave the world behind, or alternatively, go for a gentle meander around the village, deciding where you'd like to go for dinner....

'The Little House consists of an open living area with a breakfast bar and kitchenette. There is a fridge, microwave with grill, dishwasher and a portable two ring electric hob. ( Please note - there is not a full oven available) .

A ground floor shower room with wc, hand basin and heated towel rail leads off this open living space.

A staircase leads up to the mezzanine bedroom, with a double bed, hanging rail with hangers, a shelf unit and bedside cabinets.

There are plenty of electric sockets throughout.

I hope you'll love this secret hideaway, located right in the centre of the village.

Where you’ll be

Stock, England, United Kingdom

Stock is a charming village located between Chelmsford and Billericay on the B1007, with easy access to the A12 and A127 and M25.

Unlike many villages nowadays, it's a very lively place with four pubs and a cafe, two shops, with late opening hours, hairdressers and beauty salon, doctor's surgery, library, and a hotel with spa and pool and there are also three churches.

The seaside towns of Southend on Sea, West Mersea, Frinton, Walton and Clacton are about an hour's drive away, but the historic riverside town of Maldon and the sailing mecca of Burnham on Crouch are closer, about 30- 45 minutes away. Essex has the lingest coastline of any county in England - due to the very many small inlets as well as the large estuaries of The Stour, The Blackwater and The Crouch.

Colchester and Hedingham are famous for their historic castles.

If gardens and gardening are your passion then, RHS Hyde Hall with its magnificent gardens and activities is well worth a visit and about 20 minutes drive away.

There are also many beautiful walks around the village for you to enjoy, in the woods or in open countryside and Hanningfield Reservoir with its fishing, nature reserve and cafe is about 4 miles away.

There are also many interesting and historic towns and villages to the north of the county, such as Coggeshall, Thaxted, Saffron Walden, Finchingfield and Great Dunmow with their beautiful old timber framed houses, so prevalent in Essex.

Flatford Mill, made famous by the artist John Constable, and the charming village of Dedham is about 50 minutes drive away.

I've lived in Stock and nearby West Hanningfield for most of my life, so if you need local info, please ask me! I own and run a marquee hire company, I love sailing - hence the nautical theme in my property - and dancing, ski-ing, music and theatre, and long hikes with my dog, Mollie the Collie. (If you stay with me you might meet her, but she has no access to The Little House! )
