This is a charming B&b in Saffron Walden, UK. I had room number 2 which was a good size and had a very comfy bed. The hotel dates back to Oliver Cromwell and was recently refurbished to modern standards but still maintains the charm and ambience you would expect in such an ancient place. There is a restaurant/ bar on the main level with a couple of fireplaces. There are several options for breakfast and the food is good. The only issue with my room was that it's on the the main road in Saffron Walden and was noisy but I did get used to it after the first night. There is a more quiet room in the back. The staff is helpful and accommodating. Since there are only six rooms in the inn, if you want to book one, don't wait too long.
