We chose this place for a night as it was within a short drive from Stansted where we were going to drop off our car the following day. For starters, it is located some 10 miles from Chelmsford town centre, in the outskirts. So it would not be conceivable for those not driving. It was also difficult for us to... More

The shower/bathroom was small, bed was uncomfortable. You pull a string to turn on the shower. The carpets were dirty. They don't provide soap, not even hand soap. Luckily we... More

We got what we paid for. Clean, tidy,beds were comfortable, bathroom could do with a bit of care and attention, but overall not bad. The owners were friendly enough and the pub is an old mans pub with a girly calendar on the wall which could offend if your easily offended.

We stayed in 2 of the self catering rooms on 29+30 May. The rooms are spacious and very clean. We had secure parking for our car. Martin and his staff were very friendly and helpful. Can recommend to everybody. Will be back.
