A homely B&B close to Stansted airport. Stayed 2 nights and were made very welcome, in lovely surroundings. Breakfasts were excellent. Gardens were beautifully laid out and the breakfast room overlooked them, which was very pleasant. Rooms spacious and comfortable. The owners were most friendly, helpful, and attentive to needs.

I stayed at the cottage from June to December 2011, whilst working on business in Bishop Stortford. Overall the place was superb. The owners are very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The location is charming in a lovely setting in the village which is very convenient for Stanstead Airport. Each room has been tastefully decorated and... More

In this respect the Cottage scores very highly; from my first contact with Sue over the phone to my early arrival Sue was pleasant, accommodating and well just nice...... I had the... More

A lovely house with beautiful gardens and all the facilities you'd expect, plus a lovely breakfast. All that you could want from a b&b and its only 15 minutes from the Stansted terminal.

This is a lovely, very old house with some beautiful features. My bedroom was quite large, twin bedded, with en-suite facilities, shower and toilet. The location is very quiet and although once or twice I heard a plane taking off in very nearby Stanstead Airport the rest of the time the only sounds that I heard were the birds singing... More
