About our home

Our family home is close to Stansted Airport and a short train ride away from central London. We have four double bedrooms and one single. Medium size garden located on a river with access to a small motor boat and parking for up to three vehicles. Two reception rooms, one is a play room fully equipped with toys for children aged 2-5 the other a relaxing adult area with 55" internet TV. Family dining area for up 12 max.

Our home is a historic property and was built by the Gilbey family as their family home for many years. The Gilbey family famously manufactured gin until the 1970’s when the mill that was once a working part of the site was burned down.

We feel the house is excellently placed for trips into London, Stansted Airport and the many towns and villages in the Home Counties. For those wanting to get further away, the Norfolk Broads and Yorkshire dales are within 2hrs drive. With the airport a 12 minute train ride away, European trips are on the doorstep.

We’re new to the site so please get in touch if you have any questions or need any more detail. We’re a small family looking for big adventures in amazing places and we’d love to hear from you if you like the look of our home.
