For us it was initially about looking for somewhere close to Wethersfield and we were so fortunate to find Bucks House. Located in a small, quaint village - Great Bardfield, this B & B is steeped in history - I think Nessie said that the original house was around 500 years old.

We were at a wedding at Spain's hall, a few miles away and we were accommodated with our request to have the room earlier than 2pm so we could get changed. We were given a key to the front door and we were home... More

We stayed in the four poster room, which was lovely with a very comfortable bed. The facilities were excellent, they have a very good eye for detail. A very nice breakfast with plenty to eat. We felt very welcome.

I want to write a review for this Guest house purely because the owner of this property 'Nessie Poston', has been so kind and considerate.

We recently attended an event in the village and wanted somewhere to stay overnight. Bucks House was ideal. The bedroom we had was very pretty and had everything in it you might need.
