Newly converted annex with own entrance, within a short walk of the restaurants, shops and railway station of the village of Stansted Mountfitchet.
When you enter the property, there is a hall and kitchenette area and a door leading to the newly installed bathroom. Up a short flight of wooden stairs is the door into the bedroom/sitting room.
The sleeping area has a king size bed, and two bedside tables. There are three windows in the room but they all have black-out blinds and the windows have secondary double glazing to ensure a quiet, peaceful nights sleep.
The lounge area has a large flat screen Freesat TV, a chest of drawers, two comfortable armchairs, a coffee table and two full length clothes cupboards.
Tea, coffee, sugar, milk, fruit, fruit juices, butter, preserves, muesli, cornflakes and bread supplies will be in the kitchenette for you to have breakfast and refreshments at your convenience.
The property is equipped with smoke detectors and a fire extinguisher
Parking is available at no additional charge on our drive outside the property.
Please note that there is no sink in the kitchenette area, so dirty plates etc are collected and replaced daily.
I am originally from Yorkshire and moved to London to study and never went back North to live, though I have lived south in Botswana for 6 years. My wife is American and we have travelled all around the world, but there are always new places to see.
William Bramley purchased this apartment in 2011
It is very private and quiet, but within walking distance of the extensive facilities of Stansted village. We are a ten minute drive from the airport but we are not on the flight path. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and we are a short walk to the main line station with services to Cambridge, London and Stansted Airport
The bedroom lounge area is large (7.25 metres long) and has nice views. We use 100% Egyptian cotton sheets. There is a modern bathroom with full sized bath and overhead shower. The kitchenette has a sink, microwave, egg boiler, kettle, toaster, coffee machine, fridge/freezer and a single ring induction hob.
We live next door, so if you need any help we are only yards away.
My boyfriend and I visited England for the first time and decided to stay at a home away not to far from the city but far enough away where we could get a countryside experience. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed our time at this bed and breakfast. Working at hotels in the US I am very particular about where I travel to and stay, and this place was extremely clean, comfortable, and might I add had some new renovations to the bathroom! When we walked in we were overly impressed! The pictures online do not do the cottage justice. Not only are the accommodations nice but the owners are so accommodating and helpful! Bill helped us with some great recommendations on places to eat within walking distance and also helped out when printing boarding passes for a flight we had. I can't express enough how wonderful our stay was at this Stansted apartment! We got everything we wanted and more to our first trip to the country. A short walk to the train station so we could get into London for the day and exceptionally comfortable accommodations from Bill and his wife! We can't wait to come back! Thank you again for such a great trip! Meghan and Matthew
The property was just what we needed, it was lovely and clean and had just what was needed. We drove down to visit our daughter for the weekend and it turned out she stayed just round the corner. The location was ideal and to get parking to was a plus, would definetely stay again and recommned it to others too.
We stayed at Potash Cottage for a month while in the UK visiting family and have nothing but good things to say about the place and the owners. Everything needed to make our stay comfortable was provided, and more. There is car parking on site which is a real bonus, and the railway station is only a few minutes walk away. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants in the village - The Yeoman Cafe is excellent for lunch and is also licensed. Mount Fitchet Castle is well worth a visit as is the windmill and large church. The people in the village were very friendly and after a few days we felt like locals. Bill and Susan did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable so we will definitely be returning when we are next over there.
We stayed at the apartment whilst visiting family in Finchingfield. The owner is very helpful and friendly, stocking up the fridge with items for breakfast, and providing tea, butter, milk, jam and coffee.
The apartment has a spacious bathroom, living and sleeping area all very clean and decorated tastefully.
There is no kitchen which the owner advised us in advance however there are amenities to prepare a non-cooked breakfast, light lunch and drinks. There is a also a microwave.
We will definitely stay again when visiting family as we had a lovely time in the apartment and it is close to family, local attractions etc.
A very cosy and comfortable little cottage set in a village where everyone still says hello, yet only 35 minutes by rail from inner London. Has all amenities you would need and is close to pubs (we liked "The Cock"), supermarkets and a very friendly coffee shop on the High Street. Stansted Windmill is well worth a visit and climbing the four flights of steps up to the sails gives a good surrounding view, if you have a head for heights.
This is a very comfortable little apartment, with more space than expected in the bedroom/living room. Clean and everything provided. The owner is very helpful but not intrusive and we had a lovely selection for breakfast.
The Castle is a short walk away and well worth a visit as is the windmill.
I would definitely recommend a stay in this apartment.
We are situated in the Norman village of Stansted Mountfitchet. The village has several pubs, wine bars, restaurants, take away and shops within a five minute walk of the house. There is a lovely Park and Recreation ground about two hundred yards from the property. The village has some interesting sights, including a Norman castle, Toy museum, an impressive Windmill, and a lovely Arts and Crafts church.
The Railway Station is about 500 yards from the house with frequent trains to London and Cambridge. There is also a train that stops at Stansted airport every 30-60 minutes. We are not on the flight path so it is generally free of aircraft noise.
There are plenty of lovely walks & places to visit in the area and the town of Bishops Stortford with cinema and more extensive shopping options, is about a five minute drive away.
Stansted Airport is only a ten minute drive from the house either by country lanes or via the A120. We are a five minute drive from Junction 8 on the M11
Golf: 18 hole golf course at MuchHadham only 10km away and a 9 hole golf course in Elsenham 5km away.
