This is a 3 star bed and breakfast.  It’s a modern, chalet style house  in a little village near Stansted Airport.  It’s a family home with just a few guest rooms, so the owners can offer the personal touch.  We don’t have any guest reviews for it at the moment so we’re not able to give it a rating (March 2010).

Address: Parsonage Road, Takeley, Essex, CM22 6QX.
Phone: +44 (0)1279 871306
Reservations: Compare prices on High Trees B&B Stansted


High Trees B&B is about a mile and a half away from the terminal, but it’s not under the flight path so you won’t have your sleep disturbed by the planes.  It’s in a village, with a local pub just a couple of minutes walk away.  In the surrounding villages there are several other places where you can get some good old fashioned pub grub.


There’s overnight parking at the house for car drivers and, if you ask in advance, the owners can arrange long term parking in the local area.

Check-in/out and breakfast

Check-in is between 4 pm and 10.30 pm.  You can set yourself up for your journey with a Full English or Continental Breakfast, including home made bread and jam – yum! This is served in the lounge between 7 am and 9 am.  If you’re unfortunate enough to have to leave earlier than that, then you’ll get a breakfast tray in your room, which consists of cereals, roll, banana and fruit juice.

Shuttle bus

You can catch a public bus to Stansted – they pass the house regularly.  The B&B does not offer transfers to the airport.

Hotel facilities

There’s a garden which you can use and free Wi-Fi internet access throughout the B&B.  They’ll cook you an evening meal if you book it in advance.  Otherwise, you could take a trip down to the local village pub, which is a couple of minutes’ walk away.  Breakfast is served in the lounge, which overlooks the garden.

Guest rooms

High Trees B&B has 4 bedrooms.  There’s a double room with en suite, a twin room and 2 single rooms.  They’ve all got a TV, tea and coffee, hair dryer and alarm clock – just don’t forget to set it!


Unfortunately there is no disabled access to the building.


The house is about 3 miles off the M11 at Junction 8.  Take the B1259 sign posted to Takeley.  Continue on this road for about 3 miles to the 2nd set of traffic lights, where you turn left into Parsonage Road.  High Trees is about 250 yards on the right, opposite Chestnut Way on the left.  The nearest train station is at Stansted Airport.

Airport views

This is not a place for airport views as it’s an off-site B&B, which isn’t under the flight path.  Planespotters should try the Hilton London Stansted Airport instead.
