Nicely converted farm buildings with comfortable bed, warm and cosy even in miserable February. Friendly and helpful owners, great breakfast. So much nicer than a hotel chain! A bit tricky to find as the farm drive is off the old Braintree Road but good access to the A120 and Stanstead Airport.

Stayed overnight, and was pleasantly surprised on how nice the place was. Not the easiest place to get to because the long drive puts you a bit away from the Sat Nav destination. Once there you are made to feel welcome, rooms are a good size, everything you need in them, free Wi-Fi etc. Breakfast in the morning was in... More

Great place to stay, even in the storms we really enjoyed it. The room was cosy comfortable and warm, the bed was massive but perfect. A good place to stay if you wish to sample the delights of rural Essex. The breakfast was excellent and wholesome, the owners as very friendly and welcoming and lovely people. We will be going...

On the approach to Blatches Farm the Sat Nav had to recalculate - this was Sat Nav's fault - he didn't understand about the long private off road drive. I began to recalculate too - the drive went underneath a dual carriageway and I feared a noisy night. The guest accommodation is in the yard of a working farm and... More

We stayed here for one night. It is set in the middle of a farm and lots of open space around.The rooms are very comfortable and clean. We slept well after a busy day. The breakfast in the morning was really good and David the owner and his wife were very friendly. I will definitely be coming back to stay... More

A good overnight place to stay or even longer if exploring local area. The rooms are a reasonable size and have tea/coffee making facilities, unlike some places we have stayed at. The farm is near to Stansted airport if meeting flights (easy road access), but far enough away not to be disturbed by planes. The breakfast was filling and fresh... More

At the end of a day's cycling you don't want to struggle to find where you are staying. We ended up Blatches more by endurance than any help from a local business that had never heard of it he said ! ( The newish road has made the location harder to get to ! ) Anyway after arriving we couln't... More

Hidden away the farm is the quietest place around. Room very clean and everything really that you need. Bed was really comfy with a lovely feather quilt. Breakfast was cooked to order and they offer a great selection. felt very looked after even though there was a bit too much butter for us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry about the doggy prints

Another great stay, lovely room, with copious beverage choices, free wifi, Freeview TV and lashings of hot water from the rainfall shower; free shampoo and shower gel and, as usual, plenty of choice at breakfast; and plenty of it. Great dog walking too. I could have stayed nearer to my eventual destination, but I chose to stay here (again) as... More
