“The Farmhouse Inn is a treasure and a credit to the Thaxted area.The room was very comfortable, with all facilities and was very quiet. The evening food in the bar was excellent as was the breakfast.The location is lovely with well maintained gardens and the staff very friendly.We will be staying at the Farmhouse Inn again and would recommend it to other people seeking accomodation in the lovely North West Essex area.”
