    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. Lorraine Groves 02 September 2014 - 14:05:42

    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. Highly recommended. 18 June 2012 - 09:29:13

    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. 15 May 2012 - 13:20:36

    Excellent Location, excellent host This is my second stay at this apartment and I intend to stay again when work brings me to this area. The apartment is located in a quite back street and in a secluded corner of Stansted Mountfitchet. The description on this site does not do justice to how nice this place is or the locale in which it sits. Within walking distance are numerous restaurants and take away along with opportunities to sight see in this lovely area; there is a castle and a windmill among the sights within walking distance. A train station is a short distance away and London and Cambridge are a short train ride away. I find it ideally situated for Train, Stansted airport and sight seeing. The apartment is delightful with plenty of room for two people to relax. The upstairs is a studio with bed and seating area, TV and cupboards are also in adequate provision. Downstairs is a lovely bathroom with all conveniences and a small kitchen area with kettle, coffee maker, microwave and fridge/freezer. All of this is sufficient for a good comfortable stay. The hosts will cater to every need and start well by asking what you would like provisioned in the fridge for Breakfast, they follow this up by appropriate cleaning as necessary. This is a clean, well presented suite for one or two people and I will be staying here again when I can. 01 May 2012 - 20:44:11

    Potash Cottage is a delightful annexe to a period cottage. It has been beautifully completed to a luxury standard. The owners have included some extra special touches such as Laura Ashley towels, bathrobes and lovely toiletries. Bill, the owner, is extremely helpful and thoughtful providing local information as well as a lovely selection of goodies for breakfast. The area the cottage is set in is beautiful with a windmill and Mount Fitchett Castle in walking distance. Cambridge and London are easily accessed by train - the station being a few minutes from the house but the double glazing ensures a peaceful stay. The town of Bishops Stortford is a few minutes in the car and is full of lots of lovely shops. This is a lovely place to stay. 30 July 2011 - 13:50:13

    Prettty cottage located a short walk from the centre of the village, with shops and a number of pubs and restaurants. Only a few minutes walk from the station, with direct trains to Liverpool Street, London. It has a small kitchen area downstairs and a large bedroom with a sitting area upstairs. The owner has put quite some thought in to equipping the apartment, so it comes with a hair dryer, egg cooker, dressing gowns, iron and information on the area. 15 March 2017 - 09:16:00

    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 04 June 2016 - 00:00:56

    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. 08 November 2013 - 00:30:39

    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. 04 June 2013 - 20:45:17
