Reviewed April 16, 2013

booked to stay here overnight as we had a surprise birthday party to attend in Dunmow.
we were very pleasantly surprised at the warm welcome we received, and at the spacious room. The converted stables are a delight to see, wrapped around a courtyard. The room itself was clean and bright, and bathroom was huge in comparison to some hotels we've stayed in. There was also a good selection of toiletries available.
Breakfast is served in the converted Granary, with a wide choice of juices, cereals and cooked items.
Plenty of parking under cover or in the courtyard.

Room Tip: No 9- spacious!

Booked online at short notice and got a very good price. Had to change my ETA but they didn't mind. Easy to find, easy parking, very quick check-in, excellent warm room, very good shower, marvellous breakfast. What a gem.

A picturesque and charming farm with wonderful food and friendly hosts. The rooms were really warm and clean. Easy parking, comfortable bed. Farm dogs pottering about. Tea, coffee, hot choc, cotton wool, ear buds and hand soap. Hot shower and bath. Spacious wardrobes.

Stayed here on a Sunday night for a wedding at Lees Priory. The room we stayed in ( Bonnie , room 9 ) was spacious , clean and warm. Tea and coffee facilities, large flat screen TV, free wifi ( 2.5 Mb ). Fluffy towels, hand soap, shower gel, hand cream, ear buds and cotton wool were a very nice touch. The shower was spacious , warm and powerful.
The breakfast in the morning was as good as any Hilton / Sofitel we have stayed in with a large range of hot and cold foods with tea, coffee and juices. Croissants , yogurt and cereals.
The staff could not do enough for you and we're on hand 24/7 if required.
Parking was in a covered car-port which was nice.
They even offer a park and stay deal for Stanstead Airport which we would definitely consider.
I would thoroughly recommend this place for the price.

Room Tip: Bonnie 9 is one of the largest and great.

I stayed at the B&B recently as to break up the travelling on a cross country business trip. Rooms are clean and spacious, the owners are very friendly and the choice of breakfast puts some 4* Hotels to shame!

As a business user the key things we're the free WiFi in the rooms, and the peace and quiet!

As a runner, I can recommend making the run into and Around Great Dunmow, which is very picturesque, and provides a nice 7k route.

We have stayed at Homelye several times and always look forward to staying there. The owners are a very friendly couple and nothing is too much trouble. The freshly cooked english breakfast is superb (with plenty of choice if you prefer a lighter option) and if you want to find somewhere to eat in the evening there are a number of quality restaurants in Dunmow High Street which is only a few minutes drive away (if you like Indian then the Balti Spice is particularly good). Homelye is fairly local to Standsted so I imagine would be very handing for an early flight but we have never heard any aircraft noise even during the busy summer holiday time. The farmhouse accommodation is set well back from the main road so no sleep disturbance from any traffic. Will definitely be back.

I stayed at Homelye Farm Courtyards for two nights in December. I received a very warm and friendly welcome, which was much appreciated. As I was travelling alone, I had booked a single room. It was spacious, with a huge amount of storage space, and was spotlessly clean. It had a nice shower room with toiletries, and thoughtful touches like a jar of cotton wool and cotton buds. The room also had tea and coffee making facilities. Because the rooms are located in converted farm buildings around a courtyard, they are very peaceful. Homelye is a working farm, but I was not aware of any noise from farm machinery. It was also very cold when I visited, but the room was lovely and warm, with radiators which I could control myself. Another plus point is that because of the courtyard arrangement of the rooms, it is possible to park right outside your room, which makes loading and unloading luggage a 'breeze'. Breakfast is served in another lovely old building with exposed beams. I had a cooked breakfast which was very good. The service was excellent and there was a good choice of breakfast menu. I really couldn't have been made to feel more welcome and I felt that everyone I met was more than happy to help in any way they could. I think this is also reflected in other reviews. The standard at Homelye is one which all B & B's should aspire to, and I couldn't recommend it more highly. I would not hesitate to stay again.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are of a very high standard and all occupy the same quiet courtyard.
