Stayed here for one night. As I arrived late and needed to be away early, the owner met me at the door rather than me ringing the doorbell and disturbing other guests. I was shown to my room with an adjoining bathroom and I had a very comfortable night. The room and shower room were spotlessly clean. Although breakfast wasn't... More

My daughter and I stayed for one night, and we were thoroughly impressed by this beautiful cottage, packed with lovely period features and character. The room was large, and had everything we needed, and the cooked breakfast was delicious. The view out onto the garden was lovely - a great improvement on what you often get when staying in a...

If you like the modern certainty of Travelodge or Premier Inns then "The Cottage" is probably not for you. However, if you would like to try staying in a 300 yr-old property with quirky stairs (ground floor rooms available) and 'character' bedrooms then try here. Our room had wonderfully sloping floors (which meant my wife's watch continually slid off the... More

Stayed at The Cottage Guesthouse, Birchanger Lane for two nights and had a very enjoyable experience. The guesthouse is located in an idyllic location within easy commute of Stansted Airport with a frequent bus service within easy walking distance to the nearest bus stop. The Cottage Guesthouse portrayed a lot of character with beautiful overlooking gardens. Accommodation was very clean... More

Lovely old house and garden; oak panelling in lounge, comfortable bed in clean and well decorated room, good breakfast, welcoming hosts. Easy to get to and from Stansted airport by bus or taxi. Birchanger itself a lovely village and the local social club allows visitors to eat there- very cheap beer!

Stayed for one night. Made to feel very welcome. Room was lovely overlooking a beautiful garden. The ambience of the hotel was lovely. We were served a lovely breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble. When we departed were offered help to car and our host saw us on our way.

An exceptional accommodation with a warm and friendly welcome and environment. Rooms are extremely cosy, breakfasts excellent and a highly recommended place to stay. There is so much to be said for the personal touch and a very friendly welcome

Was highly recommended for a family wedding we attended. Everything was of a high standard. We received a very warm welcome and nothing was to much trouble for the owner. We will be staying again in the summer.

A very warm welcome from Keith the owner, nothing was too much trouble. The main building is truly beautiful from 17th century. Comfortable bedroom and excellent breakfast served in the conservatory over looking the garden.

Spent one night at this bed and breakfast. The location is nice and if you were taking a flight from Stanstead Airport would be ideal. Soundproofing between rooms is very bad and the room decor is definitely stuck in the 1990's so could definitely do with some updating but I undersand that it is under new ownership so hopefully this...
