Like other people have said! The bed - I guess two singles together (?) resulted in a huge bed! Easily the widest bed we found. It's not five star, but good for the overnight stop. Breakfast is a bit Youth Hostel meets Transport Cafe as it's in an adjoining building and a few of the other folks were workmen staying... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and what a gem of a place. The rooms were in a renovated stable block and each had its own lockable outer door. The rooms were clean and fresh and the beds were soooooo comfortable. The bathroom was modern and the shower was very powerful. We took along our small dog and she was... More

We stayed here for two nights during a friends wedding and it was a great find. As others have said a decent size room with comfy bed and a great shower. Breakfast was superb - the best poached eggs I've had anywhere ! Hosts are warm and welcoming and a host of farm animals add to the charm. We would... More

If anyone deserves success it's the owners of Blatches Farm. They are kind, considerate and friendly, running a quaint B & B. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool 4*/5* man (Hilton Honours/Novotel/Priority. etc;) but this was a terrific find, in a nice rural setting. The rooms were well appointed and clean, the breakfast first-rate. I'm very noise sensitive to others noise in hotels,... More

Very relaxing night at this family run farm. Close to Great Dunmow which is a lovely historic market town with thatched roofs and merchant houses. We ate at an Indian restaurant recommended by the farm, top stuff! They serve one of the best breakfast selections I've ever seen in the UK! A good start to keep me going through airports... More

We were invited to a wedding in Billericay and having had a bad experience with a Premier Inn, we decided to look for something a bit less 'chainy'. This place is a little gem! They had our room ready for us at 10:30am, even though they were still on breakfast service when we arrived. The room was absolutely spotless, beautifully... More

Used this place as attending a wedding nearby. The welcome couldn't have been more friendly. All the rooms are in a nicely converted barn across from the main farmhouse. The rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast was very good and tasty. Overall fantastic value for money.

Wanted a base for the weekend just for relaxation and nice food. Originally looked around local areas but then found this hidden beauty with a fishing pond - a hobby my partner hasn't done for years. The cottages are large enough with a huge bed and perfect bathroom with walk in shower. There were a few animals on the farm... More
