Additional amenities & feature info
This is a country retreat. There is a beautiful private, fenced garden ( birdtable and pond ) with access straight onto footpaths- no roads. The conservatory has lovely views of garden and open country. It is snug and has every facility. There is a fully fitted kitchen, comfy lounge with TV/dvd and double sofa bed, and a bedroom with fitted wardrobes etc Fluffy towels on heated rail in the luxury shower room, and sparkling white linen is the norm. We are helpful hosts who welcome you with homemade baking and can help you plan trips and find your way around. The nearby Suffolk and Essex villages are often underrated and Clare, Long Melford and Finchingfield, to name but a few, should not be missed. Of course you can take in Cambridge and London too. Our local pub The Bluebell Hempstead has home cooked food, log fires and live music each week. Dogs and horses are welcome.

Excellent accommodation. Great location. We used this as our base for exploring the Essex, Suffolk area. We visited Ely cathedral, Peterborough Cathedral, the sights of Cambridge, Grantchester, Bury St Edmunds, Southwold and all the delightful villages nearby. It is a well equiped, clean, private retreat...More
