We have stayed here several times now, always with much enjoyment. Immaculate rooms and en suite facilities. Delicious breakfast, with a range of fresh fruit, a new loaf to toast, and tasty cooked food, prepared by the owner, Christopher. A lovely barn conversion set in peaceful gardens and grounds.

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.

Paid our second visit to Knowles Barn. This is a lovely place to stay, with well-appointed rooms and immaculately clean en suite facilities. The house is surrounded by peaceful grounds, with horses grazing and the sound of birdsong. Breakfast, cooked to order, is delicious - we had rhubarb to start with, marvellous! The bread is freshly baked. Altogether, the height... More

Stayed for one night whilst on business in the area. I appreciated the warm welcome and service was just right, without being over attentive which I have sometimes experienced when I am the sole guest. The bedding, towels and toiletries were all to a very high standard and details like fresh milk in the room was noted. Breakfast, with the... More

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.
