I was put up at The Stable (in good faith) by the organisation for which I was working. I eventually found it - there is no name on the gate, and I had been told to "look for a house with a wood-pile outside...". I found one, and sure enough the rubbish bins in the front yard had "Little Garth" painted on them, sod I guessed I was in the right place. No one answered the door when I rang and knocked. A phone call from the person who had booked me in eventually led to someone answering the door - I assume she was the owner (she didn't introduce herself, or even come out). She said she had been drying her hair so hadn't heard the door, that the room was round the back, the door was unlocked and the key was on the table. She then disappeared back into the house. I left my luggage in the room, which was a converted stable detached from the house and quite well fitted out, and went on to my work, returning at about 9.30pm. At about 10pm there was the sound of voices - quite a LOT of voices - directly outside my room. OK - only 10 o'clock... The voices became increasingly loud and went on - 11 o'clock, midnight, 1 o'clock... The owners were having a party, and as the weather was so mild (in October, in the small hours of the morning) they had decided to have it outside - knowing that I was their paying guest in the room outside which they had decided to entertain. They brought out chairs and set them up about six feet from the door into my room. The noise peaked at about 1.30am, with me lying on the rock-hard mattress of the bed, with all four of the skimpy fibre-filled pillows over my head to try to block out as much of it as possible. In the way of parties, as the booze flowed so the noise got greater, and as the night went on it got more maudlin. At just gone 3am a woman voice bellowed "I mean why, why, WHY would anyone even DO that?". I had been thinking exactly the same thing. This was not a noisy-party-in-the-next-room-in-my-hotel situation. This was the OWNERS (I believe their names are Harriet and Steve) deliberately and knowingly holding a noisy party directly outside a room which they had booked out to a guest, and for which they had been paid. Noisy fellow guests are antisocial - this was that too, but it also revealed complete contempt for their customers. |They cannot have expected that they would be able to entertain outside in early October. If they had held the party inside, as they must have originally intended, there would have been no problem. One would hope that knowing they had sold the Stable room for that night would have decided them NOT to have their party outside. It did not. Around 3.30am the last of the noise abated, but I had had very little sleep before I had to get up, have breakfast, and go to work. |Breakfast was dispiriting: there were some slices of a cheap white loaf stuffed into one plastic bag, and two tired croissants stuffed into another. In the fridge was a plastic box with some pre-sliced cheese. Two bananas and two yoghurt (I was there for two nights - portion control is obviously important to Harriet and Steve), and a couple of other bits and pieces. I wondered if this is what the owners considered a good breakfast for themselves, or if they just thought this was good enough for their paying guests. If I hadn't had to eat in order to take some medication, I would have given breakfast a miss. As I went out past the large glass doors into the house I was stare at by a dishevelled bearded man sprawling on a sofa, looking rather the worse for wear. Steve? Or one of the guests from the previous night? I don't know, but it was not a comfortable experience. I reported what had happened to the people who had booked me into the place, and they emailed the owners (I feel I should call Steve and Harriet my "hosts", but hosting is clearly an alien concept to them, so "Sooners" it is). They apparently replied with a "fulsome apology" and a refund. This was interesting in a number of ways. How sincere is an apology for an extended act of contemptuous rudeness to a guest committed by people who knew exactly the effects of their actions as they were carrying them out, but did it anyway because that was what they WANTED to do? How does a refund to a third party compensate in any way for what I (their guest) suffered at their hands? (I had to go on to do two days of extremely responsible and demanding work on almost no sleep). I guessed that, when I got back that evening for the second of my nights at Little Garth, there would be an apology either in person or in a note. Sadly nothing. Steve and Harriet obviously lacked the balls to come and face me themselves, but the lack of even a written apology shows that they had no regret, let alone remorse, for their actions, and illustrates further their contempt for me as a guest. I don't take this personally! How can it be personal, when I have not even met them or them me (unless the hair-drying woman speaking across her front-yard was indeed Harriet)? On the evidence of my stay, this is less a Bed-and-Breakfast than a Give-Me-The-Money-Find-Your-Own-Bed-Get-Your-Own-Breakfast-and-Don't-Get-In-My-Way. I travel a lot in my work, and am put up in all sorts of accommodation from very modest B&Bs to plush hotels. I have no preference for any one sector of the hospitality industry provided that it offers - well, hospitality... This was the worst experience I have had for a very long time. It wasn't a matter of misfortune, even of mistakes. This was wilfully offensive behaviour on the part of (absentee) owners towards a paying guest. Both the act itself and the cowardly way in which it was (not) dealt with are completely unacceptable. If you must go there, I advise you to take ear-plugs and breakfast with you, and to pray for weather which will keep your "hosts" as inaudible as they will be invisible. There were some good points: except for the faintly musty towels and an unappetisingly sticky marmalade-jar containing half an inch of marmalade dregs, it was clean. If you like artificial flowers and fake Fortnum and Mason baskets you'll like the décor. And there is plenty of hot water for the washing up - if you go to a B&B to do your own washing up....

The Stables is a beautiful conversion situated to the rear of the main house and has been decorated and furnished to the highest standard. It is private and quiet and the sun shining on the garden on Sunday morning was a lovely thing to wake up to. The space is designed perfectly to include everything you need just where you need it. I would happily live in The Stables permanently!! The room was spotless and the kitchenette was equipped with everything you could want for a Sunday breakfast; croissants, pain au chocolate, yoghurts and fresh coffee. Dolly was very helpful and friendly. We got a taxi to Parklands (Quendon Hall) and back for a Ball and it was just 10 minutes drive. I couldn't fault The Stables and would recommend any one to stay here.

This wonderful room is an amazing find. Situated just behind the main house, it used to be a stable, however it has been transformed and now is the most amazing space. The high vaulted ceiling gives a wonderful feeling of space in this enormous room. it was so spotlessly clean and had all those touches that you only get in 5 star hotels, including fresh coffee an even a couple of yoghurts in the fridge. And a lovely shower in the en-suite. The couple who run it, Steve and Dolly could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Warm and welcoming and a great sense of humour. And the breakfast was one of the best we have ever had. Beautifully cooked with wonderful fresh local ingredients. The village is about 10 mins from the M11 and is tucked away, but is a wonderful spot for walks and perfect for Saffron Walden and Cambridge. If you are in the area you will not get better value or a better welcome, thats for sure.

Tivemos uma noite encantadora neste agradável B&B. O quarto foi em um pequeno anexo agradável na parte posterior do jardim. Muito limpo, muito bem decorados, e muito bem equipada. A cama era boa e confortável e o banheiro era limpo e moderno. Fiquei particularmente impressionado com a kitchenette. Tudo de presunto, queijo, pão, croissants, compotas, cereais, chá, café, etc. já estava abastecido na cozinha área à chegada, para se preparar como e quando eu queria. Isso tornou uma estadia muito confortável, e eu nunca senti como se estivesse no caminho. O proprietário também foi incrivelmente tipo e que desejam oferecer a sua ajuda em qualquer forma, ela poderia. Recomendo para quem se hospeda na região.

Ficamos aqui por uma noite e desejamos poder ter ficado mais! O estável é separado da casa dos proprietários, para que possa ir e vir sem sensação preocupante ninguém (embora os proprietários são muito simpáticos). Boa qualidade, móveis elegantes e modernos, com alguns toques especiais planejados. Bem equipado com tudo o que necessita e impecavelmente limpos. A kitchenette significa que pode fazer-se uma chávena sempre que quiser e uma encantadora seleção de itens de café-da-manhã foi à esquerda no quarto para nós, desejo que eu poderia ter gerido para comer mais! Altamente recomendado.
