    To say it was small is an understatement. The ride on mower in an adjoining barn had more room than we had in the lounge. The stairs were unbelievably steep and being disabled they were difficult to manage and it took great effort to get our suitcase up to bedroom. The dirt between the floorboards was, for us, unacceptable. The toilet, described as an eco toilet, from caravanning experience, was nothing more than an elaborate Elsan. To describe the experience of using this waterless toilet would put people of their breakfast. Not a place for us and we shall not be returning. The description on the holiday "cottage" was not entirely clear of the above points, and had I been more informed of the place, I would not have booked. The positives were the rather pleasant porch, and sitting out on a nice warm evening. Had there been inclement weather however, it would have been another experience, given the lounge area was so small. We departed the property on Sunday morning after just 15 hours. I'm sure this property is enjoyed by some, reading some reviews, but it's not for us for the reasons given I'm sorry to say.

    Very quirky place to stay.Plenty of wildlife on the doorstep,Barn Owls,Muntjack,and plenty of birds to watch from the portch.The cottage is small but comfy enough,the bed is massive but take care on the steep iron stairs.The owner left tea,coffee,eggs and a bottle of wine which was a nice touch.Aircraft can be heard taking off from Stanstead but its not too disturbing.Didnt think much of the Crown pub at Elsenham but there are some country pubs within a few miles well worth a visit.

    This is just the most adorable cabin..... just perfect for a romantic break away - we absolutely adored it It has everything you need and we just loved the opportunity to sit on the veranda in the evenings...... it is a small space downstairs but its just really cosy We will definitely be back.....
