My sister booked this delightful b nb so that we could be near the area where our paternal ancestors lived. My bedroom was very spacious, first rate shower and the full English breakfast was just what I wanted! Penny, the landlady was very attentive, in spite of being obviously busy with an art project. She immediately found out what we... More

Idyllic is an over-used word, but this wonderful B & B with its stunning views over the River Stour in one of the most beautiful parts of Essex, more than justifies the description. Very comfortable rooms and a delicious breakfast complete the picture.

Pretty and individually furnished, quiet, light room on the first floor with a wonderful view over the Stour Estuary. Double bed with good mattress. Very small, clean en suite bathroom/WC without window. Storage space for toiletries. Parking spaces in the drive at the front of the house. Generous choice of food in a well-lit breakfast room: breakfast cereals, home-made marmalade... More

Stayed here for 6 days on business. This is a very special place - wonderful location with spectacular views over the Stour, beautiful garden and what can only be described as the best landlady you could ever wish for. Penny is attentive, accommodating and wonderfully good fun. If you want something unconventional, comfortable and even sometimes a tad exciting book... More

I have just come back from a lovely stay at Emsworth House. It is super comfortable, there are fabulous views, a warm and friendly atmosphere, great breakfast, interesting art all over the place (and art classes if you want to join in), a lovely garden and an all round good experience. Many thanks for a great stay.

Emsworth House is a lovely old place with a beautiful view of the river Stour and a very pretty terrace to view it from. Unfortunately my sister and I just had a very poor experience there. The room obviously hadn't been cleaned for some time, the tea things were all stuck to the tray with spilled tea and the UHT... More

Stayed here whilst visiting for my son's cricket matches at the Royal Hospital School nearby. Penny was a very warm hostess and looked after us nicely. Room was comfortable and warm, with a nice view of the Stour. Lovely big garden. Breakfast was well cooked and tasty. Penny even gave us some cake one afternoon when we came back from... More

Travelling on the ferry from Harwich? Booked on the early sailing? Need a place nearby to stay overnight after a long journey? Look no further than here! A charming and beautifully kept homely B&B with friendly, personal service just a short drive from the ferry terminal. A shame that we had to leave so early and had so little time... More

Just returned from a business trip to this hotel - can't recommend it highly enough. Penny, the hostess, was excellent, the views are just stunning and the level of service and attention to detail was brilliant!!!

An absolutely wonderful house in a gorgeous setting with lots of artwork displayed. The hostess, Penny, is a very interesting lady and most welcomong. Beautiful views all round - we had a lovely en-suite room with river view and we were welcome to make ourselves at home around the house and grounds. It was a pity that we were only... More
