We stayed here when visiting friends in Essex. It's down a small country lane in a picturesque village. The hotel incorporates an art class/school so it was busy when we stayed, but very quiet. Great country cooking is all part of the deal.

This review is on behalf of my mother and her friend. They enjoyed their stay immensely - excellent service, food and atmosphere. Comfortable, clean rooms with lovely linen. They would highly recommend staying there except for people allergic to cats.

Charming rooms, views, hospitality, super breakfast and immaculately clean. The gardens were so pretty and evidently they do art classes there too. I can only draw stick figures but would consider doing the beginners... More

The setting is charming and nothing is too much trouble for Wendy and Jim, the owners. The meals are superb. Fabulous breakfasts are hard to resist and the fine evening dining is a real treat.

One of the nicest UK hotels we have ever stayed in. Amazing village, beautiful B&B and brilliant food. The owners have put so many little touches into this place which makes you feel at home and very well looked after. They also have an incredible wine list! Will certainly return.
