Nestling in the heart of peaceful rural Essex, this is the perfect location to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Daw Street Farm is a 500 acre arable farm in Finchingfield, Essex. The accommodation is in two beautifully converted farm buildings. Both combine original barn features with modern luxury. They offer countryside views, comfort, and the promise of a good night's sleep. Short lets are available all year round - on a weekly basis, or for a minimum of a 2 night stay. Daw Street Farm is ideally positioned for a peaceful break, but benefits from being within easy reach of Stansted airport, Spains Hall which is a wedding and conference centre venue and fast trains to London. Finchingfield is just one of the many picturesque villages to explore in North Essex, and there are many historic towns to visit, with their antique fairs and markets.

The Granary is a very comfortable 'house' for a big family
As a family of 6 we found the Granary to have everything we could need for our extended stay. A fully functioning kitchen (including dishwasher and washing machine) was a fantastic help. The bedrooms were HUGE, very clean and comfortable, the lounge area was more than adequate for us and the oil heating kept the house nicely warm. The local town, Finchingfield, offered several eating houses; we especially liked the 'The Fox Inn'. We would thoroughly recommend Claire's accommodation at the Granary, which is part of a working farm, to anyone who was thinking of staying in the countryside.
Stansted airport is only 30 minutes away. Fast trains approximately 40 mins to London. Spains Hall is only 2 miles away
