Guess what? Harwood House Stansted B&B is nestled in the newly named “Best Rural Place to Live” according to the Halifax Rural Areas Quality of Life Survey in March 2014. The survey placed Uttlesford in the top spot. This is great news. We couldn’t be happier about what the Halifax survey had to say about the beautiful countryside where we call home. Don’t take our word for it:
In terms of personal well being and general good health, Uttlesford residents score among the highest in Great Britain. And while house prices relative to earnings are above the rural average, Uttlesford still performs strongly in terms of average weekly earnings and a high employment rate.
Why Uttlesford in Essex Is the Best Place to Be
Situated in the North West corner of Essex, Uttlesford is a somewhat new district having only been created in 1974 following the merger of the boroughs of Saffron Walden, Dunmow Rural District and Saffron Walden Rural District. Residents in this area are also blessed in health and vitality; the average life expectancy is almost 82 years. Stansted Airport is a staple of the area, and perhaps what it is most known for.
Our Stansted B&B just happens to be conveniently close to Stansted Airport, and our Park and Fly service is one of our most popular options. Read more about what we offer:
