The V Festival has happened every year since 1996, and this year it is promising bigger and better things with headliners like Justin Timberlake, The Killers, Ed Sheeran, Paolo Nutini, Lily Allen, Bastille, Kaiser Chiefs, and many more. Sounds like fun, right? Well, guess what, it is just a 20 minute ride away from our Stansted B&B where festival goers have the chance to start the day and end the day in indoor luxury, well away from crazy campers at V Festival.

The Harwood House Stansted B&B Offers a V Festival Package

Don’t fancy camping in the rain? Want to kick start your day of Festivaling with a mighty fine cooked breakfast? Take advantage of Harwood House Stansted B&B’s V Festival Package. All the fun of the festival coupled with a hot shower, a comfy bed with cosy feather duvet, and a delicious freshly cooked brekkie in the morning. During the Festival, the whole house is let to Festival goers only, staying all stay 3 nights so there’s a nice atmosphere in the house. The Package also includes transport to and from V on both days, so our guests can have a drink and relax knowing we will be picking them up at the end of the day. We recommend picking up early bird V tickets for 2015, and getting in touch straight away as we were sold out for the 2014 Festival by the end of February!

You don’t have to take our word for it, there are plenty of past festival goers who agree.

Just back from a 2 night stay at this lovely guest house and wanted to write a review straight away. As soon as we walked in we were made to feel so welcome by Helen & Ian. Our room was lovely, big & very clean. They were so busy while we were there but it didn’t stop them making everything very personal. They knew every single guest and remembered exactly what they liked for breakfast. The breakfast was gorgeous and the dining room also very homely. We cannot recommend this place highly enough and would not hesitate to return in the future. Thank you so much Helen & Ian, you made it so much more than a couple of nights in a b&b.  – Paul & Kerry.

I booked this B&B for the weekend and V Festival and I must say our stay was fantastic! Helen and Ian were extremely helpful and did more than was asked of them, the breakfasts were delicious and the whole atmosphere was warm, friendly and inviting. I would definately recommend this B&B to anybody who wants to stay in the area especially the V Festival weekend package!

“V Festival package – what a fab weekend!!”

Myself and 5 friends booked to stay at the Harwood Guest House for their ‘V Festival’ Package. I found the guest house by looking online for accommodation close to the festival. When I saw they did a weekend package which included 3 nights bed and breakfast and transfers to and from the festival I gave them a call. I spoke to Helen who was really helpful and after checking with my friend we booked to 6 of us to stay. On arrival we met Ian who was really welcoming he gave us the lowdown on the village (which has some nice pubs and restaurants) we went out on the Friday and had a nice chinese and a few drinks. The following morning we got up and went to breakfast which was amazing, loads of choice and really really yummy the following two nights were spent at the festival followed by a great nights sleep and a lovely breakfast. The room was really comfy and we had everything we needed throughout our stay, the food was top notch as was the service, so much so we have already booked for next year & are really looking forward to it! Thanks Helen and Ian – see you next year!!!!

Ian and Helen run a really great B&B. They both do everything they can to make your stay good and nothing was too much trouble. They feel just like your friends
We stayed to go to the V Festival and the transport there and back was great, efficient and on time. Rooms really comfortable, quiet and clean, breakfast great. Will definately recommend and return.
Many thanks

My friend and I stayed at Harwood Guest House for the V Festival weekend 2009. The area surrounding the b&b is great, some nice pubs and restaurants about a 5min walk away. The accommodation is perfect for V Festival. The collection/drop off service Ian & Helen offer is very well organised and makes the weekend run very smoothly! The V Festival entrance is only a 20min drive down the road! The rooms were really nicely decorated with nice bathrooms and the most comfy bed I’ve probably slept in!!! You are free to come and go as you please with your own set of door keys. Breakfast was brilliant, set us up for the day at V Festival and exactly what you need each morning. They will cook you exactly what you want and you can request what time you would like your breakfast too! I would recommend Harwood to anybody as I really enjoyed my stay.
