Stay at our pretty Grade II listed cottage where you are always guaranteed a warm welcome.

We're at the top of a quiet country lane, just off the village green, a beautiful and quiet location, conveniently just 2 miles (5 minutes) from Stansted Airport.

Situated in the historic village of Takeley nestled in the beautiful North Essex countryside between the towns of Gt Dunmow and Bishops Stortford, The Cottage is easily accessible from the M11 (Junction 8), Bishops Stortford and Harlow.

With 3 Village public houses and The Old Flitch Market town of Gt Dunmow approx 3 miles away with a wide range of cuisine there are plenty of places to eat and drink.

We have many interesting places to explore and visit around the area including the ancient royal hunting forest, Hatfield Forest which is run by the National Trust.

Cycle along the Flitch Way Country Park, a former railway line that passes through 15 miles of stunning rural Essex between Bishop’s Stortford and Braintree.

Have a day at the races and visit Chelmsford City Racecourse just a few miles away.

We have 2 rooms available at the cottage, a double and a twin priced from £50 per night (Single occupancy £40).
The double bedroom has en-suite facilities and the twin has it's own private bathroom.
Both rooms share a landing and make an ideal family suite from £75.
