Bucks House Bed & Breakfast

Bucks House is a beautiful Grade II Listed building.  It was built between 1510 and 1560 with lathe and plaster and a heavy timber frame.   In Victorian times a brick 'skin' was used to cover the lathe and plaster. It is set on the village green in the centre of Great Bardfield, a medieval conservation village that has changed little in the past five hundred years.  

The house is the much-loved family home of Nessie Poston,  who offers luxury bed and breakfast in this lovely country house.  Bucks House is furnished with antiques, oriental and Turkish rugs and many works of art.   Guests from all over the world  are welcomed to Bucks House.   We try to ensure that all our guests enjoy their stay at Bucks House, and will want to return . Our lovely  walled garden and patio are available for guests to use.

There are two good pubs in the village, both minutes from Bucks House. Both serve excellent food.  There are many good restaurants in the area and we can make reservations and book local taxis. 

Further afield, there are many places to visit.  We are 20 minutes from Stansted Airport, 40 minutes from Cambridge and 20 minutes from Bishops Stortford, Great Dunmow,  Braintree and Saffron Walden. Thaxted is three miles and Finchingfield 2 miles. Wedding venues in this area include Ann of Cleaves Barn in Great Bardfield, Spains Hall in Finchingfield, Leez Priory and Maidens Barn. Audley End House is 20 minutes away. 

East Anglia is a beautiful rural area, unspoiled by mass tourism. Traditional villages, unchanged for hundreds of years, and small market towns abound.  Within 40 minutes drive of Great Bardfield, you will find yourself in the stunning wool towns of Lavenham and Long Melford, both famous for their wonderful lathe and plaster  timber framed  buildings and antique shops.  The same distance will take you to Dedham Vale, where John Constable painted so many of his famous scenes.
