Loved this property, lovely well maintained surroundings, room was spotless, very comfortable and had everything you could need for your stay, including air conditioning and reasonably priced mini bar. The staff were so friendly and helpful, and we are the free continental breakfast outside at a little table everyday. Easy to get into Chelmsford and London too, would definitely return one day!
