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.

Sample Page

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:
Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)
…or something like this:
The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.
