Bucks House is a beautiful Grade II Listed building. It was built between 1510 and 1560 with lathe and plaster and a heavy timber frame. In Victorian times a brick 'skin' was used to cover the lathe and plaster, a sign that the then owners were people of substance who could afford a brick house! It is set on the village green in the centre of Great Bardfield, a medieval conservation village that has changed little in the past five hundred years.
The house is the much-loved family home of Nessie and Peter Poston, who now offer luxury bed and breakfast in this lovely country house. Bucks House is furnished with antiques, oriental and Turkish rugs and many works of art. We enjoy welcoming guests from all over the world to Bucks House. We try to ensure that all our guests enjoy their stay at Bucks House, and want to return.
Our lovely walled garden and patio are available for guests to use
