Lovely 6+ Bed home in Near SAFFRON WALDEN, ENGLAND

Our beautiful house was built in 1510 and is listed as being of historical interest. However, it has all modern comforts and conveniences and is furnished with antiques, oriental rugs and lots of paintings. It has lots of beams, an inglenook fireplace, pine panelling and character. It has 7 bedrooms and five bathrooms as we are a country house b & b when not travelling. The house is in the centre of a delightful medieval village, 20 minutes from Stansted Airport and less than an hour from the east of London. Cambridge is 40 minutes. Suffolk, Norfolk and East Anglia are all close by. You can get to many parts of Europe on Ryanair for only a few pounds. Our village has two pubs, one of which serves excellent food, a grocery store, post office, hairdressers and butcher. We have an Audi A6 Avant Diesel which we would hope to exchange. Neighbours in the village would provide a warm welcome. Our regular help in the house will continue at our expense to come in for cleaning, cat feeding etc. to fit in with the arrangements of any exchange partners.
