Very nice, cozy and comfortable cottage
It is a very nice house. It is very quiet, the only noise you might hear is from the goose around the lake.
It is in the middle of nowhere, but Saffron Walden is only 15 minutes away. You can travel from there to London by train in less than an hour, also Cambridge is close by.
The house contains a bedroom with a double bed, a bedroom with 2 single beds and an open space above the bedrooms, which is reachable via a small spiral staircase and has another single bed.
The owners are very friendly, there were free fresh eggs in the fridge for us
