    A proper country pub in a beautiful small town, 30% cheaper than a dull airport hotel & only thirty minutes away from Stansted. From my window I can see the church, a 'chocolate box' cottage & a windmill.... lovely!

    I think the easiest way is to get a bus/taxi to Stansted Airport - it's about 12 miles away. The Stansted Express train runs frequently to London, but it is a little expensive. Have fun!
