Huge comfortable bed - clean spacious room. Walk in shower was great. Brilliant breakfast served up with a smile and good chat by Dave and Liz. Plenty of options for evening meals within easy driving distance.

I found this a very comfortable spacious room. Very clean and well presented. A large shower with a big shower head, perfectly mixed water temperature. It is a bit of trip to find an evening meal. About 3 to 4 miles. Breakfast was great starting at 6:30am if you are an early starter.

Really comfortable beds, quiet rural setting, excellent showers, awesome breakfast served with a smile. This is one of those places worth finding - and worth reading the reviews on trip advisor. It's a great place to stay.

We stayed here while my daughter held a party. After rushing round to help her prepare it was nice to come to this real oasis of calm and relax. The walk in shower is amazing, its so nice not to worry if I'm going to slip getting out of the shower ( have put my back out doing that in... More

Have stayed here a few times now, flying out of Stansted or visiting Chelmsford, and it has been ideal... * Easy to get to/from both destinations * Good sized rooms, which are always immaculate * Comfy beds and good showers * Breakfast that hits the spot But the owners are the real jewel in the crown, they couldn't be more...

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
