Welcome to our English Country Inn in North Essex, close to the borders of both Hertfordshire & Cambridgeshire, boasting lovely walks, cycle routes and thatched cottages.

Near to Stansted Airport and close to the historic market town of Saffron Walden and magnificent Audley End House, we are also lucky to be a short drive to the Imperial War Museum in Duxford and Newmarket Racecourses, The Home of Horseracing.

With so much to see and do in the area, why not make a night of it and stay over in one of our cosy bedrooms - it is worth it just to try our award winning breakfasts!
