If you want to experience a 400 years old charming guest house - then Chimneys is the right place for you. The owner, Ian, was informative, helpful and extremely nice. He recommended a tour of the small village of Stanstead Mountfitchet (the name is almost bigger than the village) that was very nice. The guest house is small, and despite...

Very clean & spacious room. Nothing was too much trouble. Catered very well for my wife's food allergy problems - bought in soya milk and margerine, and also had checked the ingredients in the local sausages etc. They do have very steep stairs, and low beams/doorways, so may not suit everyone. Very convenient for the railway station.

We arrived early but we were warmly greeted by the owner- even made a nice pot of tea and biscuits for us after having a long drive. Room was well decorated in keeping with the age and style of the property. Bed was comfortable and...

We spent three nights in Chimneys. Great hospitality, very helpful couple, really comfortable bed, delicious breakfast. Old listed building, but modern bathroom. Low beams, so mind your head! Very central with railway station and restaurants nearby. However, our room was very quiet.

I stayed at this guest house the night before an early flight from Stansted. It is ten minutes drive to the airport, and about a 30 second walk from Stansted Mountfitchet station so the location is great. The owner was very friendly and the room was very cosy and comfortable. Only had time for a quick slice of toast and...

A warm welcome is the start into a cosy stay in this perfectly located romantic guest house. The very friendly owners have an eye for details, like the lovely teddy bear on every bed. Another extra is the friendly dog. As well as the delicious and rich breakfast. Everything is provided, even helpful gardening books for garden lovers in the...

“The smallest room with a single bed is just right for a single. The other guest rooms have either a double or two single beds so are good for both single travellers or more than one person. All are very comfortable and quiet with their own bathrooms.”
