Family rooms

The White House is a delightful 16th-century property situated close to Stansted Airport – but not under the flight path. The stylish bedrooms feature superb beds, luxurious bathrooms and many thoughtful touches. Traditional breakfasts, served in the farmhouse-style kitchen, are made from local ingredients; evening meals are available at the Lion and Lamb, a nearby pub and restaurant owned by the proprietors, who can usually provide transport to and from The White House.
