Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful cottage - just so charming !!! What can I say about Joseph's Cottage? It's simply delightful Such a charming, comfortable, usable, central cottage to stay for a family, up to 3 couples, or for a romantic couple getaway in lovely Maldon It's so well appointed and tastefully decorated, and the slow combustion stove is fabulous to cook on, to warm the cottage on a chilly night, and just to have fun with. We had the best time - the cottage and garden are just wonderful, including veggies and chooks! Conrad is an excellent host - all communication was clear, helpful, and very friendly. Highly recommended. AAAAA+++++

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in every way Joseph's cottage was the perfect place for our stay in Maldon. We thought the photos didn't really do it justice. It's spotlessly clean, has every little thing you need, beautifully decorated and the garden just tops it off. We spent three beautiful days sitting on the back deck with the french doors open, writing, cooking, reading and soaking up the spring sunshine. The location is ideal also, easily close enough to walk to town for a morning coffee or a pint at the pub. Loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Cosy We spent a delightful four days at Joseph's cottage. Given that we were there in mid winter, we appreciated the fire and the heating, making the cottage toasty and comfortable. There is also an Agar, which we didn't use. But I assume it works. There is a long leather couch and leather armchair by the fire - perfect for lazy reading, with books and magazines on tap. The bed was very comfortable. The decor charming and unfussy. Outside there is a hen-house and vegetable and herb gardens and a fire-pit for an outside fire. And the town itself - walking distance from the house - is quite gorgeous. The steam train huffs into the station just at the back of the house. The cottage was built mid 1800s. If you love history this is a very romantic way to transport yourself back to a time of your choosing, without any discomfort!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Met our every expectation Wow. Thanks Carmel and Conrad. Your little cottage was fabulous. Perfection at every turn, we made good use of the open fire pit amongst the beautiful/immaculate gardens. I wish I could have stayed a little longer. Oh well, it just lends itself to another visit. :-)
