“Flat tyre?! No problem at this Friendly Farm”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Just wanted to say a really big Thank You for an enjoyable stay at your B&B. Especially the cooking breakfast then helping me change my flat tyre bit!
Clean, comfortable, quiet rooms, Country views, and exceptionally friendly service. I can thoroughly recommend.

Stayed October 2012, traveled solo

My husband found this B&B on a "biker friendly" website and it certainly lived up to that description. From booking, arrival and the end of our stay, Tracy and Neil could not have made our time away more pleasant. Accommodation is in traditional Essex farm buildings (listed buildings)converted into fantastic en suite rooms. We stayed on a Thursday evening prior to going to a bike rally further down in Essex. After experiencing the standard of Homelye Farm we decided to stay for the Sun andMon evenings after the rally, and explore the area from there. We stayed in 2 different rooms and both were decorated and furnished to a very high standard, with good sized bathrooms with lovely fluffy towels and really nice toiletries. The farm has a lovely breakfast room, with exposed beams and timbers, and a bar that is open during the evening! Breakfast was excellent, especially the cooked breakfast, with cereal, toast, crumpets, muffins, yoghurt, fruit- you name it, Tracy and Neil provided it. For bikers, the accommodation is ideal as you can pull up right to the front door of your room and unload your panniers straight into the
room. Tracy also offered us undercover parking too. Both she and Neil were very considerate and lovely company, and ready with info on local walks and the best way back to the M11. We also now know what a flitch town is, and they know the difference between Geordies and the rest of the North East! We will certainly stay here again and cannot recommend this B&B highly enough. Many thanks to Tracy and Neil for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: The Pykle- slightly bigger bathroom with bath and separate shower.

We stayed for one night recently and were met by a very friendly person who signed us in. He asked if we would like help with our cases and although I declined he came to help anyway which was very nice. The room and en-suite were first-class and clean and the breakfast we enjoyed next morning was excellent. Check-out was easy and we would highly recommend this B&B to ALMOST everyone. Unfortunately, my wife is one of 5% of the population who is electro-sensitive and this includes problems with mobile phone masts. She was horrified to see the water tower nearby almost covered in apparatus. I would just like to warn anybody else who may share her problem. Apart from that we would certainly have returned when next in the area.

This is the fourth time I have stayed at Homelye Farm and will continue to stay here for early flights from Stansted.

Nice rooms, converted from barns, set around the bar and check in/breakfast area. Parking is free and just outside your room if required.

Always have had a very friendly welcome from the owners.

Rooms are good, nothing too fancy but all you need and clean. There are no facilities to eat on the evening here but it is only a short journey into Dunmow town center where there are a number of pubs, restaurants and take away places for food.

I had my bike with me and there is an old railway line passing very close to the farm which is now a bike track and will lead you to either Braintree or Stansted, great for a bit of exercise after work.

Breakfast was good and hot food prepared promptly from 7am, which is perfect for an early flight.

Would thoroughly recommend staying at Homelye, the rooms are beautiful and the owner is lovely and very helpful. The rooms are set back from the main road so the only noise you may hear (if any) is that of the birds in the morning. They are very comfortable and spacious and breakfast is delicious!

I used Homelye Farm to stay at whilst competing at Ashfields Carriage and Polo center. I was looking for a quick and easy place to book and I found it. The free parking and inclusive breakfast makes it better value than the competition around the area. The service was fantastic, welcoming accommodating. The room was immaculate with everything we needed. I will be returning and would recommend friends and family as well as anyone else.

Room Tip: Ask for the Dobbin room it was lovely.

The night before my wedding I stayed here with some of my friends and family. The couple that own the B&B could not have been anymore helpful and welcoming. The rooms were spacious, clean and well presented, the parking is ample and breakfast amazing. I can't thank them enough for going out of their way to accommodate a bridal party that needed to be at the hairdressers by 8am, checking the weather for us and generally making all of us very welcome. I would encourage anyone to stay here who is looking for quiet, relaxed and comfortable accommodation.
