Two night stay here and we weren't disappointed. Our hosts were so helpful with suggestions for local places to east and walk. Wonderful breakfast with home made bread and marmalade. Would highly recommend.

Splendid B&B for comfort, quality, cleanliness, architectural interest and beautiful surroundings. We stayed for one night on our way to the Harwich ferry and would love to stay again on our way to the ferry or to Stansted airport. The owners are very friendly and serve a really good breakfast.

A warm welcome from the owners and a very comfortable room. Knowles Barn has been recently converted into a home and a B&B. It is set in beautiful countryside and has a lovely garden. The owner keeps horses, which are friendly (though mind the electric fence!). Breakfast was very tasty, especially the free range eggs from their own hens.
