Stylish luxury apartment offering comfortable space for 2 pos 4. Upper level - kitchen, dining/lounge, double bedroom ensuite. Ground floor room - double sofa bed. Ideal for exploring Epping Forest and Essex Way. Close to M11 and Stansted Airport.

The space

The Studio is located in a cart lodge within the grounds of a beautiful listed property dating circa 1642 which has been our family home for 35 years. The space is fitted out to a high spec with a character walnut double bed and luxury en-suite with shower. The kitchen is fitted with a microwave, Siemens oven, induction hob, fridge and washing machine. The lower level room is a purpose made recording studio which we will ensure is not in use during your stay! There is a comfortable double sofa bed if required with an additional £20 charge per person if the booking is for 4 rather than 2 people. The layout of the flat would mean that guests staying in the lower level room would need to walk through the upstairs bedroom to use the ensuite. The small recording room, adjacent to this second bedroom, will be locked to guests. Wi-fi is accessed throughout the flat.

The comfortable kitchen/lounge is amply equipped if you prefer to cook in and watch a DVD or movie on Netflix and there is an additional TV in the main bedroom. There are two excellent pubs offering great food within walking distance and various restaurants and takeaways a few minutes drive away in Ongar.

Until last summer, The Studio was occupied by our musician son who recorded various musicians including his own Ska and Folk bands! Now our children have fled the nest we are missing the activity of the constant stream of guests and visitors, mostly of the creative type! We now enjoy sharing our home and welcoming guests to experience this lovely area of the countryside yet still within a relatively short driving distance of London and Stansted Airport. It is possible that we could provide a collection/drop off to the airport - please do ask when booking.

The family garden is not accessible and is separated from The Studio by a garden wall.

There is parking for one car outside the Studio and another to the front of the driveway if required. For your own personal safety, guests will not be permitted further down the driveway towards the wood store and workshop.

We love to welcome our guests to ensure that they are well informed to make the most of their stay. You will then be left to enjoy yourselves without disturbance although we are always contactable should the need arise.

Fyfield is a picturesque village with two fantastic pubs offering excellent food. Opposite the Studio is a pub well known for its wholesome, plentiful meals - takeaway if preferred! Only 500 yards away is another, offering real ales, fine cuisine and wines and also widely acclaimed for their regular 'Garret Sessions' when famous country/folk bands play to an intimate audience.

The area is popular with both walkers and cyclists and the property is located on the route of The Essex Way and the 2014 Tour de France.

Guests may chose to play golf at nearby courses or driving ranges. Clay pigeon shooting is a more unusual sport on offer in the village and there is a beautiful fishing lake within a mile.

Attractions within close proximity are:
Epping Ongar Railway
Secret Nuclear Bunker
Hylands House (hosting 'V Festival' and many family fun days)
Ashlyn's Farm
Greensted Church
Lea Valley Park and Water Sports Centre (white water/canoeing)
Olympic Park, Stratford - stadium, Velodrome, Aquatics Centre
Audley End House and Gardens
RHS Hyde Hall

There is a local based taxi company offering a 24 hour service.

The Studio is located 15 minutes from the M11 and 20 minutes from Stansted Airport.

We may be able to offer collection/drop off to the airport so please check for availability.

Driving distances/time:
Epping Underground station is 20 minutes away - 50 minutes train journey into Central London
Chelmsford/Bishop's Stortford/Brentwood/Shenfield mainline stations are 25 minutes away. There is a limited bus service to Chelmsford 3 times a day from the hours of (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).

Due to the limited bus service to and from Chelmsford, a car is recommended for those wishing to explore beyond the village.

The Studio is located in the grounds of a family home which, until the mid 1950's was a working Blacksmith and latterly a farm/farm shop. It is currently a carpentry and furniture making business. This has been our home for 35 years during which time the various business activities have not impacted on the quality of family life.

Guest access

For their own personal safety, guests are asked not to access the rear of the driveway.

We just ask that guests leave the flat as they find it and have respect for our neighbours at all times and, for this reason, we ask that loud music is not played after 2300 hrs.

Whilst we appreciate there will be the occasional breakage, unacceptable damages will be deducted from the security deposit. We also ask that guests inform us as soon as possible, or prior to checkout, of any breakages or damage incurred during their stay.

Although our house is within the grounds, there is a separating garden wall and so you will have privacy during your stay.

The music studio, adjacent to the ground floor room will be locked and inaccessible to guests and for personal safety, guests will not be permitted further down the driveway in the vicinity of the workshop and wood store.

Regrettably we are not able to welcome your pets and there is a strict no smoking policy in the flat. We also ask that guests do not wear their outdoor shoes inside the Studio.

Extra visitors are not permitted without our own approval and late night parties will not tolerated.

Wonderful hosts. Awesome apartment so well set up and really comfortable. Had really good sleeps in your comfortable bed. Just what we needed before setting off home or on the next leg to Europe. Thanks for your warm welcome and your trust in us. Certainly recommend to potential guests and if we come over again we will look at a longer stay. Couldn't be any better!

Lovely overnight stay. Teresa was very helpful helping us arrange a taxi and provided excellent directions. She was there to welcome us to a lovely apartment which was very clean, tidy and extremely comfortable. We found fresh croissants, muesli and eggs waiting for us at breakfast. What more could one ask? A delightful stay thank you Teresa.

Thanks Teresa for a fantastic stay. The flat was perfect and spotless. And probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! And the pressure on the shower is amazing. We really appreciate you letting us drop our bags off before the check-in so we could make the wedding in time. One tip for future guests, phone signal is non-existent so make the most of the studio's wifi and use the numbers provided by teresa for local taxi services in advance!

Teresa User ProfileTeresa is a superhost.

I have been hosting for over two years and was delighted to be awarded Airbnb's 'Superhost Status' after the first year. I have really enjoyed welcoming guests from all walks of life and from so many parts of the world. I am married to John, a carpenter who designs and manufacturers bespoke furniture.

When the British climate allows, I am learning to sail and otherwise enjoy my time singing and performing with a modern choir, needlework (mainly soft furnishings), gardening and cooking. Unfortunately, 24 hours in a day is just not long enough!

John and I are both sociable and, when not working, absolutely love living in such a beautiful part of the UK and we are especially happy when spending time with our friends and family. As our two adult children work within the music/theatre field, we regularly go to the theatre and music gigs and, over the summer months, we try to go to as many as possible of the growing number of music festivals in the area. We do have a tendency to take on too many projects at once but when relaxing, we love walking and cycling.
