A home from home for holiday or business guests in beautiful Saffron Walden.

Accommodation

Our fully-carpeted, centrally-heated accommodation comprises a sitting/dining room with kitchenette off, understairs cupboard providing storage for coats, boots, etc; split staircase to a large, light and airy double bedroom with ensuite shower room, and a small study off.

In addition there is a sitting-out area exclusively for guests' use. This has a table, parasol and comfortable chairs, and is a lovely afternoon suntrap. It overlooks the main garden where you may catch sight of a passing muntjac deer, frogs and toads on walkabout from the pond, green woodpeckers, or a sparrowhawk that occasionally whizzes past, along with many other birds (and squirrels) attracted to our bird feeders.

Guests have their own parking space on the driveway outside the flat.

All bedding, towels and tea towels are provided. For stays of two weeks or more, we change these once a week, at a pre-arranged time convenient for our guests. Space does not allow for provision of a washing machine but our weekly rate includes a laundry service of one wash load per week.

The flat has free Wi-Fi with its own dedicated secure login.

On arrival, in addition to the basics stored in the Kitchenette (see below), guests are provided with a Welcome Pack of fresh milk, fruit juice, local bread and eggs, butter and a fruit bowl.
