We have just returned from a visit to Warner's Farm B&B. What a gem! Netty and Chris are great hosts and made us feel both welcome and comfortable. We stayed in the super king room and found it superb. The room is equipped for guests with mobility problems and has everything you need including a mini fridge. The gardens are tranquil and we wish we had come prepared to swim in the pool as it looked very inviting!
The breakfast was outstanding with the best fruit salad we have had. And Netty's cooked breakfast was both delicious, generous in portions and beautifully presented.
This is a B&B to return to again and again. We were sad to note that the hosts are thinking of retiring. Hopefully we will be able to return before that happens.
The site is in a good location for visiting that part of Essex and we took a drive out to Thaxed and enjoyed driving through the many quaint villages and admiring the Tudor cottages. We visited Audley End which is about 20 minutes away and stopped at a lovely pub in Widdington (Fleur de Lis) for a pint of good ale.
