Warm welcome, lovely room quiet and restful just what we needed after travelling. Excellent breakfast in breakfastroom/conservatory overlooking gardens. Kind and thoughtful hosts who have provided extras in the room such as dressing gowns. TV and kettle with tea and coffee. Very nice choice for breakfast with fresh fruit platter as well as yogurt, porridge and a good cooked selection.

I stayed here for two nights in June last year. I agree with other reviews that Jacky and John are most welcoming hosts whose local knowledge was most useful. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I was treated to tea and cake on arrival: most appreciated. I had the "Koala Room" and could not fault it.

Stayed 3 nights 11 May onwards. Jacky and John were most welcoming hosts. Nothing fazed them and help was readily available for any questions we had about local attractions etc. The accommodation was spotless with everything you needed at hand. Breakfast was fantastic with cereals, fruit, juices, yoghurts and of course the full monty all freshly prepared to your liking.... More

I chose this B and B from trip advisor alone and without any knowledge of the area as I was en route to Norwich from Devon. I emailed a request and was emailed back in a short time offering me a room and breakfast for a very reasonable rate. The website looked lovely so I agreed. I am so glad... More

My family stayed here for one night at short notice. I have stayed in a variety of accommodation over the years but this is the best. Jacky and John went out of their way to make the stay most enjoyable. Whole accommodation was exceptionally clean, comfortable, warm and friendly. If back in Wimbish area again I would definitely stay here... More

Jacky & John have just been awarded best B&B in Essex (on October 22nd 2014),just confirming what we knew already! We have just stayed for 6 nights, this being our fourth stay at Newdegate House. The rooms, each with en-suite bathroom, are excellent. Jacky's breakfasts are also excellent and, unlike a lot of B&B's, she offers light tray snacks in... More

We stayed at Newdegate House for 3 nights in September '14 as we were attending a summer ball in Saffron Walden.
