About the hotel

The White House is a delightful 15th Century Grade II listed manor house set in one acre of attractive gardens providing a warm and relaxing atmosphere for all. Refurbished to an outstanding quality by Mike and Linda, The White House offers first class bed and breakfast accommodation, tailored to guests’ individual needs. Being located close to Stansted Airport 1.

5 miles, (but not on the flight path), The White House is the perfect venue for travellers going to and from the airport. The White House is conveniently situated for easy access to East Anglia's many attractions, including Hatfield Forest, Duxford Imperial War Museum, Cambridge and Newmarket Races as well as the City of London by road or rail. A continental style buffet breakfast is served for those departing early, and for those with a more leisurely start, a hearty English cooked breakfast served in the traditional, open beamed countryside kitchen. An evening meal is available at our nearby pub, The Lion and Lamb, which is also owned by Mike and Linda and is just a 2-minute drive away where British and modern European food is served all day until 10. 00pm. To assist you during your stay with us, The White House offers, subject to availability, free transportation to the Lion and Lamb. There is ample parking at a cost of £5. 00 per day.

Ideal for one night

We stayed in a quadruple room.

Unlike such rooms in any hotel chain, we had a large double bed and two full-size single beds. We had sole use of an enormous and luxurious bathroom, but we had to cross the landing to get to it and my teenage daughter was very selfconscious about this (rooms were either 'en-suite' or 'private bathroom'). The room was spotless, the owners very welcoming. Breakfast was a fresh fruit salad, good coffee and tea, cereals, and full English. Excellent value. Close to quite a busy road, but we slept well. Full-size beds meant very little spare space - so best for a one-night stay. Taxi to and from Stansted cost £9.50 each way for a short journey.
