My wife and I booked a two night stay at Newdegate House, and we were given a very warm welcome by Jacky and John. A welcoming cup of tea was accompanied by scones! The room was large, tastefully furnished, and very clean. The shower room was also spotless. The room had all ofmthose little extras that you might hope to... More

We spent 4 nights at Newdegate House. We were delighted with everything. It was the best room we have ever stayed in. Jacky and John were very friendly and helpful. The whole experience was wonderful. I can only repeat what other people have all ready commented on. We shall certainly book in here again.

We could not have been made more welcome that we were by Jacky. From the tea and cakes when we arrived, to the moment we left she made us feel welcome, wanted and special. Our room was lovely with all sorts of little extras on the tea tray and in the shower room. Flannels are provided and the towels are... More

We stayed at Newdegate House in March, just after arriving in London from California. It is a relatively easy drive from Heathrow...even if you are "jet-lagged"---as we were. We were greeted by our friendly and helpful hostess, Jacky, with perfect tea and cake. Our room was spotlessly clean, the breakfast was delicious, and plenty of parking for our rental car--... More

This is our second stay with Jacky and John and hopefully will not be our last. We have stayed at numerous B & B's and this is the only one where tea and cake is offered on your daily return. Everything is spotlessly clean and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast has a wide choice and my husband is still... More

What a great place to stay - 2 excellent rooms with every little detail thought of, even down to the TV guide and a torch to get you down the road to the excellent pub restaurant. Jacky was a great hostess and is a superb baker. Her home made cakes on arrival were spot on. Breakfast was very good with... More

We arrived after a hectic time in London. Easy to find and great parking for our hire car. Beautiful grounds. Very friendly host with great recommendations for day trips restaurants etc. Try the local Nepalese restaurant. Rooms spacious, nice linen, clean bathrooms. Close to Cambridge for a day out but a haven to return to. Thoroughly recommend, thanks Jacqui.

Our stay was one night only but what a delightful house and lovely welcome from Jacky. Situated between Thackstead and Saffron Walden therefore easy access to both. An excellent pub within walking distance providing first class food. I can honestly say the breakfast was one of the nicest I have ever experienced with loads to choose from. Homemade cakes on...

Wow what a fantastic place to stay. My mother, father and I stayed at this beautiful house for a couple of nights while attending a local wedding. We cannot say enough good things about the stay we had at Newdegate House. Jacky met us on our arrival and was the perfect host, assisting us to our rooms with our luggage... More

Once again we had a wonderful stay at the lovely Newdegate House B&B. We had come to the area for the Duxford Airshow and Newdegate House is ideally situated being less than a 30 minute drive away. You simply couldn't wish for more delightful hosts than Jacky and John who are happy to engage in conversation and totally make you... More
