My partner and I stayed here a couple of times flying to Portugal and Ireland. Brian is a very good host and I can see some could misinterpret Brian but its because he and his wife wish to maintain standards and they do not wish people to visit and not care for their beautiful well kept establishment. Pussy Willow is...

What an arrogant host, rude and opinionated in a very unpleasant manner. The house is lovely although the sheets were with small holes. My impression was that the superior accent and pseudo intellectual manner is all fake. Very irritating start to a trip, not for me!

Stansted airport has become a depressing airport to fly from but the Pussy Willow B+B goes a long way in making this experience a lot nicer. The host (I only met Brian) was an old-school delight and could not have been more helpful. I look forward to trying the Thai food next time.

We stayed at this B&B for the second time and found it an excellent start to our holidays again. The rooms are spacious and clean and it is very convenient if you have an early flight and need to travel a long way to Stansted. It is good value for money when you compare it with car park charges and...

We stayed in this B&B for one night as we had an early flight from Stansted back home the next day. We booked a family room (2 adults and 2 children). Three beds and one mattress on the ground; for one night this is not a big problem. The room and en suite bathroom was clean and had everything it...
