Welcome to Pheasant Suites


We’re delighted to announce that we have been awarded Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence 2013 which is given to businesses that consistently earn high ratings from Trip Advisor Reviewers and places us in the top-performing 10% of all businesses worldwide on Trip Advisor.  A big thank you to all our guests.

Balls Farm





Pheasant  Suites are situated in the grounds of the non-working Balls Farm.  The 17th century Farm House is surrounded by fields and wildlife and located less than three miles from the centre of Colchester and Essex University, a mile from the village of Elmstead Market, Beth Chatto Gardens and only 15 miles from Harwich. It is on the edge of Constable Country.

All facilities are completely separate from our own, affording guests a level of privacy not normally associated with Bed and Breakfast accommodation. This also allows you to check in anytime after 3pm, without restrictions, which is ideal for honeymooners.

Please note that we are unable to accommodate pets.
