We arrived at the farm slightly earlier than the earlier check in we had asked for during the booking process, this wasn't a problem as our room had been cleaned & was ready. We had a peaceful nights sleep - except afew animal noises, which is to be expected staying on a farm. Breakfast was delicious & plenty of it. The rooms are basic, but have everything you need. The mini fridge was a welcome extra.most importantly it was all clean! Read more

Rooms are in a converted farm building; not large but clean and nicely furnished. Our double room had a huge, firm bed with spotless white bedding and although the bathroom wasn't big it was clean with nice white towels and a double-size walk-in shower. A delicious plentiful cooked breakfast is served by the friendly, cheerful owners, with a lighter option available if required. Read more

I say Home from Home because i am a mad cat lover and was so pleased to find cats on the farm ;)The room was great and it was so handy that we could park right outside our room.

We would highly recommend staying here Read more
We arrived and were warmly greeted and shown to our room, one of 8 chalets off the farmyard. The room was of a good size, clean and functional.
The breakfast was served at a time to suit us and was plentiful and well cooked.
The owners were away but had left their daughter in charge. She and her team were both friendly and efficient. I got the impression that nothing would have been too much trouble. Read more

We were visiting our nephew and his family for his 40th birthday party. We were very impressed on arrival with Blatches farm and were not disappointed. We even organised for a family member and a 3year old to come to the farm for breakfast! Nothing was too much trouble and we would definitely return. Read more
We stayed for one night (only, luckily) and were thrown out of bed by three screaming peacocks at 4 a.m.; the modest rooms overlook the yard, a view not really being envied for and the breakfast room is part of a shack, smokefilled by the baconcrate and filled with very old chairs and tables - lorrydriver-ambience. Read more
Very accomodating allowing us to check in a bit early and helping us out with transport to and from venue. Lovely isolated spot but a bit tricky when trying to direct a cab, not knowing the area and a wee tipsy after 10 hours at a wedding. very comfortable bunk house - note that your accomodation is not in the farm house and there are 8 bunk houses in total so ideal for a large group. Read more

After staying in a range of good quality hotels it was refreshing to find a place like this. No drying air conditioning or stuffy rooms but a fresh, clean and cosy room. Bed was super comfortable.No crossing large carparks but car parking right outside our room. No formal staff but friendly helpful hosts. Breakfasts were delicious with good quality food cooked to a consistent high standard over the 4 mornings of our stay.It was also lovely to hear birds singing in the morning. Brilliant Read more

the rooms were clean and really comfortable, we all had a great nights sleep.
breakfast in the morning was perfect, a real farm style full english with all the trimmings.
location is good, rural, yet just off a dual carriageway, so the local taxi could get us to and from our wedding venue easily.
the family and farm pets were friendly, we enjoyed our stay and would consider returning for a mini break to explore the area further. Read more

Short stay organised in order to be in close proximity to a dog training event. Very welcoming greeting on my late arrival (due to motorway closures) demonstrating the typical warmth and humour of hosts demonstrated over the weekend.
The laid back attitude of the owners did not compromise cleanliness, efficiency and comfort. Read more
It was lovely to drive up the lane to this quiet and private location with convenient parking right outside each room. Great to find a bed and breakfast with rooms that match and surpass many 3 and 4 star hotels. Tastefully decorated and exceptionally well furnished with all those little extra touches that make a difference.A highly recommended stay for business or leisure. Read more
A relaxing stay.Blatches Farm was a good base for our purpose which was to meet up with relations and go sightseeing. Read more
We were made very welcome as soon as we arrived. We were swiftly checked in and shown to our rooms and given instructions about breakfast times and location. In fact, they asked us what time we prefered breakfast, which was a nice touch. The staff gladly gave us directions to where we were heading for our wedding venue and happily provided us with everything we needed, such as ironing facilities etc. Our breakfast was delicious and set us up for our journey home, great service again. Read more
We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay.The super-big bed was very comfy and the walk in shower was very nice.

Welcome to the Blatches Farm. We are family run bed and breakfast. The farm location is in the middle of the Essex countryside, yet only about Seven miles from Stansted airport. We offer comfortable accommodation in a relaxed environment. Between London and the sea lies the ancient Saxon County of Essex. As you travel from west to east the landscape in this vast county transforms from historic woodlands, through rolling wheat-fields dotted with poppies and windmills, to the estuaries and coastal villages and towns of the great North Sea. But what many visitors are unprepared for is that beneath this peaceful rural exterior beats an ancient heart, steeped in centuries of heritage and culture. Across the county, mighty castles and coastal forts commemorating past invasions rub shoulders with museums celebrating past traditions; galleries honour homegrown talent; historic churches abound and a plethora of stately treasure houses and glorious gardens, large and small, beckon exploration. The farm is an ideal location for business trips or pleasure with the Flitch way passing the back of the farm with no need to go on the road for walks or cycling. We have our own fishing pond stocked with carp, roach, chub and perch for our guests to enjoy, either fishing or feeding the fish. The area offers various attractions for all ages with local market towns like Great Dunmow (famous for the flitch trials), Thaxted and Saffron Walden.
