Our smart, new apartment in an annex of a rural farmhouse is in a very beautiful location but with easy access to Cambridge, Suffolk and Essex. Good local pubs and restaurants.
We are very close to the Tour de France route 2014

We are close to Stanstead and trains to London ( an hour's trip) run from several local stations. Ideal for shows etc
Ideal for those wishing for a quiet stay with beautiful views over three counties. There are many lovely local towns and villages to explore and local good food and drink to sample. Trips to London and Cambridge are recommended.

Birdwatching is good and it is lovely walking,riding and cycling country as we have direct access onto a large network of foot and bridlepaths

We had a lovely short break here. Owners very welcoming and the garden was brilliant for our dog. Great walks from your door. Very good value for money. Would love to return. more

Our hosts were lovely, the accommodation was clean, cosy and well equipped. We went out for the day and, when we came home, our hosts had brought in the washing we'd left on the line and baked us a delicious cake. The Blue Bell inn down the road is very relaxed and friendly. more
