The Ongar Bell Coaching Inn, Chipping Ongar, Essex, England, UK - Enjoy Being Part Of The Essex Experience In The Comfort Of Your Own Pub With The Ultimate Lock-in
About Yvonne Baldwin
My husband and I bought the property eight years ago initially to open as a restaurant, as Keith was once a fully trained West End chef and has always longed to open his own establishment. However, as we are now in our early 50's we have decided that a full time restaurant would be very labour intensive leaving us very little time to enjoy life. But by letting out our property and offering a hospitality service tailored for your individual needs we can create a carefully chosen menu served to you and your guests at "The Ongar Bell" leaving you with no work or fuss only more time to enjoy the unique opportunity of being the Landlord/Lady of your own pub while your guests enjoy the atmosphere of this charming old Inn or you can simply collect the keys and enjoy the ultimate lock-in.
Yvonne Baldwin purchased this House in 2007
Why Yvonne Baldwin chose Chipping Ongar
Our property is beautifully decorated and furnished with charming antiques offering a large social space for you and your guests to enjoy. The property also has a large 3 tired garden that is well kept and maintained and adds a wonderful addition to the propert. At the bottom of the garden there is a private area with a 10 person hot tub, changing room, shower and toilets. This area is lit up by fairy lights at night creating a magical experience under the stars. To enjoy this garden there is an additional charge of £500. Our property is big enough to enjoy your own personal space while being part of the party. Ongar is ideally situated in the heart of the countryside but a short car journey to Epping station brings you to the start of the Central Line convenient for shopping trips or taking in a show or just enjoying our capital city.
