“Comfort with affordability and location”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

Wanting something affordable and close to Stansted airport I found Harwood House B&B online.

Contacted by the owners to check my ETA, they were both friendly and helpful.

The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable! I even asked my partner if we could fit the bed on the roof of the car and take it home with us!

Great value, comfort and location! Thanks to Ian and partner!

A huge thank you to Ian and Helen for looking after the 3 of us so well during V Festival. We had a fabulous stay in their B and B - a perfect stay for V Festival in every way! The cooked breakfast was delicious, the room was comfortable and welcoming after a full day at V Festival. The transport arrangements to and from V Festival were perfect. We had a great weekend - see you next year!

What another (4th) FANTASTIC weekend spent at the brilliant Harwood House!!
Helen and Ian really could not be any more accommodating with their excellent hosting. The whole house is nicely decorated and immaculate throughout. With superb rooms that have TV's, Tea/Coffee, spacious ensuites with lovely hot showers,and more importantly for the discerning festival go-er is the comfy beds!!!

Breakfast is quite simply just what you need and one of the best ive had with a full choice to suit everyone's taste.

The V festival package even includes transport to and from the festival site and Ian and Helen do this in challenging circumstances with smiles on their faces.

This place is so good i almost dont want to tell anyone about it incase they get booked out next year!!!! shhhhhhh!!!!

A small group of us booked a few rooms at this B&B over New Year to be near friends. The two rooms that we had were lovely, a king size for me and my husband with a twin room for our children across the hall. Both rooms were spacious and elegantly furnished with tea making facilities and toiletries if needed. Every aspect of the service that we received from Ian was without fault, breakfast was truly delicious - well worth a return visit if we are in the area again!

Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to Ian and Helen for their hospitality this weekend for me and my 9 friends.

This is th 4th year we have deiced to B&B instead of camping for V Festival at Hylands Park in Chelmsford. The package we get includes a taxi service to and from the festival as well as the usual provision.

Both Ian and Helen go above and beyond to make sure we have everything we need, breakfast are lovely and rooms well decorated, modern with en suite.

If you are considering stopping in or near this area I would reccome no stopping here, you will be looked after and really enjoy your stay.

Keep up the good work Ian and Helen and see you both next year.

Arrived at about 3pm to a warm welcome from ian. Arranged a taxi for us to and from the wedding which he done himself for us at a very reasonable price. The room was lovely, being at the front of the house i would have expected abit more noise but it wasnt too bad. The bed was nice and comfortable with a lovely bathroom with towels. They had tea/coffee making facilities and if you needed anything else the owners would have happily helped. Breakfast in the morning was great with a good selection of hot and cold foods/drinks. Overall a lovely stay, would highly recommend.

We arrived very late at Stansted but the owners were very flexible and made sure we could still access our room at 2 a.m. The room was delightful and breakfast the next morning was very relaxing with a personal and cheerful service. The full English breakfast with home made jams was a joy to eat and set us up for our long drive ahead. I have already booked my next stay!
