My wife and I have stayed at the 1684 John Burnham House several times and each time has been as good if not better than the previous. Peter and George are the most wonderful and caring hosts and so interesting - the time gets away from us once we start to chat. So looking forward to our next visit and fires on the hearths!

From the minute we drove up and saw the great first period house, we knew it was to be a fabulous stay. Peter came out to greet us before we every got out of the car. From that moment on, we were treated & felt like family by Peter & George. Sitting and chatting by the fire place was wonderful.

The home and the hosts were outstanding in every way. We would stay here always when in Essex.

The house and grounds are breath-taking and Peter and George were friendly and gracious hosts. We had a wonderful time and plan to return for another stay.

A long elegant romantic weekend last year was so perfect even my meticulous local relatives were impressed with the sublime surrounding, serenity and gardens.

A spacious apartment on two levels, equipped with great care. Quiet location, hence quiet sleep. Super breakfast, friendly and helpful hosts.

The 1684 John Burnham House has been tastefully restored, and is still a work of art in progress. I would highly recommend this B&B, which was a memorable place to stay in for a special birthday.
