A warm welcome awaits you at Wheelwrights; a former village inn with newly renovated guest accommodation.

We are located in the centre of Steeple Bumpstead, a rural village on the borders of Essex, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. There are two  pubs in the village, which are  just a few minutes walk from Wheelwrights. There are several places to eat within a short drive.

Local places to visit
There are many interesting places to visit within easy driving distance of Wheelwrights B&B. We are half an hour's drive from Cambridge, Newmarket, Stansted Airport and Duxford Imperial War Museum; 20 minutes from the historic market town of Saffron Walden; 10 minutes from picturesque Finchingfield; 40 minutes from Bury St Edmunds and about an hour from London.

East Anglia

Nearby are the stunning wool towns of Clare, Long Melford and Lavenham, famous for their wonderful lathe and plaster timber framed buildings. Dedham Vale, where Constable painted many of his famous scenes, is also easy to visit from here.
