Linden House, Stansted Mountfitchet

5* Guest House with Restaurant & Bar

Linden – the lime tree, genus Tilia. Its flowers, containing aromatic oils, are used in herbal teas and perfumes and are said to have soothing properties. And so it is with Linden House, a peaceful guest house, rated a rare 5 star by Visit England. It is situated in the ancient village of Stansted Mountfitchet with its famous 1066 Castle and Windmill, yet only two miles from Stansted Airport and forty minutes to central London and Cambridge from the village train station.

Our nine Boutique bedrooms have been recently renovated at great expense with the guidance of an award winning interior designer. They are spread over two early Victorian half-timbered buildings linked by an attractive terrace. There is a friendly bar with traditional coppertop tables, still used by the local community, that gives the feeling of a traditional inn. Next to it is a panelled meeting hall with high tables and a breakfast/dining room.

The Vine Restaurant can seat up to fifty guests. Cheerful warmth radiates from the woodburning stoves, and the walls are hung with art that ranges from Seventeenth Century Dutch flower studies to works by contemporary Baltic Abstract Expressionists.

With a choice between the restaurant and outdoors, the terraces at the Vine are a great spot for summer evening drinks. Relax with some food and drink and on a sunny day this spot is an absolute gem. Of course there’s always something to have a look at inside too with some stunning artworks on display.

OUR ROOMS

All boutique style bedrooms have flat-screen TVs, DVDs, iPod docks and free WiFi. They are graced with an eclectic and sometimes eccentric collection of antique furniture and artworks. Look out for the mirrors, the cabin trunks and quirky light fittings! Each room has a unique bathroom featuring either a roll top bath or drench shower, luxury Duck Island toiletries and bathrobes. The bedding is of the finest quality, as are the good sized towels. Lighting is subtle, controlled by dimmer switches where possible. Care has been taken with the colour schemes, with the accent upon peaceful harmony.

Courtesy trays include our signature home-made biscuits. Hallway fridges hold unlimited supplies of milk and spring water.

All our rooms are named after wine varieties that can be found on our award winning wine list created by our in-house international wine connoisseur and wine judge, Tanya Mann. Choose your room and reward yourself with a matching glass!
