Lovely room, excellent breakfast, would definitely recommend

We stayed here for 1 night whilst attending my sister's birthday party in nearby Barnston. Our relatives also stayed here, in fact we took 3 rooms, one was a double, one a twin and the other a triple. Read more

Likes?
We had the aqua room which was the double, although the bed was absolutely massive, a queen I think, and very comfortable. Tea and coffee facilities were provided, and bottled water. Breakfast was fab
Dislikes?
Only thing I might say about the room was that the shower was in the bedroom rather than the bathroom, which co be a problem if you were with someone you didn't know very well! But it was fine for us.

The doors to the rooms are in keeping with the cottage feel but are thin, don't quite fit and noise penetrates both in and out.

Lovely house with a little grumble

We had booked a double room so were disappointed to find two singles pushed together with two single quilts. Especially disappointing as the website stipulates "Super King Beds with Luxury Egyptian Cotton Sheets". When we asked if would be possible to have a double room as booked, we were told in the most grumpy way "NO". We did eventually get our quilt, but not before a bit of a tangle, not the best start....FABULOUS breakfast though. Read more

Very relaxing last night before leaving from Stansted airport

Decided to take a B&B close to Stansted airport the night before departure. This was much more relaxing than a hectic early morning trip from London.

This was my second overnight stay to unwind before more travel, and it was lovely, as usual.

I arrived without phoning and sat in back garden for a while, then borrowed a phone and rang the owners and they came to let me in within a few minutes. I had brought my own food and drink - was given necessary utensils, etc. and left to myself (per my request). Slept extremely well and long - awoke refreshed and ready to resume travel. Very good breakfast, nice chat with owners whilst eating, help with bags and taxi, and was off. Read more

Likes?
It's in a peaceful location, very old, comfortable building - starting to feel like home. The owners and staff are very nice, but respect my space and privacy.

We were given clear instructions about getting back in that evening and asked what time we'd like breakfast. Breakfast was a friendly affair, just like sitting in a friends kitchen! The owner was very chatty but also gave us space to have our own conversation. Our departure was as friendly as our welcome. Read more

Very different

We wanted a B&B near Stansted and the White House fitted the bill perfectly. The room was clean and the furnishings were top quality. The staff were very friendly when we saw them and this last point was what made the visit very different to other B&Bs. We were simply given the keys to someone else's house, and told to help ourself to the kitchen fridge! Not seeing anyone for the length of our short stay suited us but we had to make our own Breakfast! Read more

The owner allows your car to be parked and damaged then shirks responsibility for it!!

On return from our skiing holiday I found that my car had been continually banged into by a wooden shed door where it had been parked. I contacted the owner's team immediately. At a later date he (Mike) accepted no responsibility for the damage stating 'all cars are parked at owners risk as stated in the rooms'. After over 3 weeks of e-mails he still accepts no responsibility for the damage. Do not park there as you might get the same shoddy treatment as I did!! Read more

Response

We would like to make it clear that Gavin parked his own car next to the swinging shed door, surely the driver should take some responsible and reasonable care of where exactly he parked? In our 7 years of trading this is the only incident of damage to a car we have received, and as stated to Gavin, in our literature it states that cars are parked at owners risk as is common practice with most hotels and car parks. We are somewhat amused that Gavin rated the value as 1 when the parking was free

Lovely!

As you arrive at the White House, it greets you as an interesting venue. Someone's home you may think..you'd be wrong! Step inside to a feeling of someone's home, yet a whole lot more! It's charming and lovingly decorated. Am I on my holiday in an olde worlde cottage? Well that's how it feels. The owners are so obliging and will pop you down to their inn in the best taxi I have had in a long while.and the food is great! Near to Stansted airport. Sadly, I was only able to stay one night.

A pleasant break at the end of a tiring week.

Very handy for Stansted Airport either catching an early flight or breaking a journey after a late one. Plenty of local information provided and would make a good base for exploring the surrounding area. Spacious comfortable en-suite accommodation with a large inviting bed - just right after a days travelling. Also there was no aircraft noise from the Stansted airport. Read more

The owners used their own extensive travelling experiences to provide an excellent service for their guests. The fact that a corkscrew and wine glasses were willingly provided on request made our stay

Description

The White House is a delightful 15th Century Grade II listed manor house set in one acre of attractive gardens providing a warm and relaxing atmosphere for all. Refurbished to an outstanding quality by Mike and Linda, The White House offers first class bed and breakfast accommodation, tailored to guests’ individual needs. Being located close to Stansted Airport 1.5 miles, (but not on the flight path), The White House is the perfect venue for travellers going to and from the airport. The White House is conveniently situated for easy access to East Anglia's many attractions, including Hatfield Forest, Duxford Imperial War Museum, Cambridge and Newmarket Races as well as the City of London by road or rail. A continental style buffet breakfast is served for those departing early, and for those with a more leisurely start, a hearty English cooked breakfast served in the traditional, open beamed countryside kitchen. An evening meal is available at our nearby pub, The Lion and Lamb, which is also owned by Mike and Linda and is just a 2-minute drive away where British and modern European food is served all day until 10.00pm. To assist you during your stay with us, The White House offers, subject to availability, free transportation to the Lion and Lamb. There is ample parking at a cost of £5.00 per day.
