Staying here was absolutely perfect for a layover! Leonie gave me a lot of great information about the nearby area (highly recommend the Indian restaurant in Thaxted, and beautiful countryside for a jog) and in the evening I had the whole bottom floor to myself. I found the couch…

Leonie and Alan have an adorable cottage very near Stansted which I highly recommend. The room was so comfortable and very charming. The hosts were very welcoming and I wish I could have stayed longer!

Great place if you have a morning flight the next day from Stansted as there's a convenient bus service nearby that takes you to the airport. Leonie was very friendly and extremely helpful with providing lots of detailed information about directions, the surrounding areas, etc. E…

Clearer directions to location would be helpful. GPS lands about a block away from actual location. Everything else was perfect.

Hello Joseph - thank you for booking to stay at our listing, and thank you also for your review and suggestion about giving clearer directions. All directions are given in full to each guest when they book with us - the single postcode which belongs to the five houses located in the area (us being one of them) as well as directions from the spot the satnav takes you to with the postcode. We were very concerned and sorry to hear when we met that your taxi driver had got lost. We are sure that a midnight landing in pouring rain and being in a lost taxi knocking on various doors to try and find us wasn't really your idea of fun on your first night of your visit to England. Our address is known to the taxi company, and our other guests who have used them have given the house name and postcode, and they have made it to us and not reported getting lost. We were glad that you told us about your experience and we have already mentioned our concerns about it to the taxi company - they informed me that your driver was new to the area and only received the postcode as a direction. We hope that despite this bad start you enjoyed your trip to England, and we wish you happy travels in the future.

The home was very cosy as described and in a beautiful Essex neighborhood. L was extremely kind and explained everything very well.
