Welcome to one of the most luxurious bed and breakfasts you will ever visit
We are lucky to live in a fantastic place, just one hour from London and half an hour from Cambridge nestled in between the historic towns of Saffron Walden and Thaxted, deep in the heart of the Essex countryside. We are not part of a group or chain, just Chrissie and Max’s home which we hope you will enjoy as your home from home for a few days. From years of travelling, we have sought to make a place which has all the accoutrements of a luxury hotel but with all those niggly things addressed which irritates one. We hope you will feel the benefit of our attention to detail.

Little extras to make your stay even better…

If you are visiting us for a special occasion or just to escape the rigours of daily life; why not add a few luxuries which can await your arrival; such as Grand Cru Champagne or Prosecco, handmade chocolate truffles, or seasonal flowers in your room.

Or if you fancy a romantic picnic in our surrounding countryside, we can prepare a Piglets hamper which you can be supplemented by a bottle of wine from our extensive honour bar.
