With Hatfield Forest around 6 miles away, Dunmow Guest House offers a cinema room, indoor pool, garden, free parking and Wi-Fi. This place far exceeded my expectations for a Guest House. If I could have snuck the bed out of the place and travelled around the UK with it, I would. I will recommend this place to everyone. I will never look elsewhere for accomodation
