This beautiful thatched cottage oozes charm and character creating the perfect surroundings for a romantic or relaxing break in the Heart of England.

Located in the heart of Bedfordshire amongst rolling countryside, guests staying at this pretty cottage will find a wide range of attractions in the area to suit all tastes. For the more active there are sporting facilities close by such as horse riding and golf, while sightseers will enjoy a day trip to Woburn Abbey and Gardens with famous safari park. The closest town of Bedford is renowned as having one of the finest riverside settings in the country while the popular tourist destinations of Oxford and Cambridge are also a must see. The city of London can be reached via a train ride or alternatively, simply sit back and relax in the immediate surroundings.

Guests arriving at this charming thatched cottage will initially enter the porch area before stepping through to the cosy lounge and immediately notice the character of the outside is reflected internally too. The stunning exposed inglenook fireplace with wood burner effect electric fire creates the perfect focal point for the room where guests can relax after a day exploring the local area on comfortable sofas, snuggle up to watch the TV/DVD or indulge in a good novel. The well-equipped kitchen/diner ensures all facilities required for holiday dining are available including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and to enjoy the resulting cuisine, a dining table. From the kitchen, the rear porch provides both access to the rear garden and a handy place for wiping down muddy paws and shoes, along with a desk for those who wish to catch up on any emails. Completing the ground floor is a bathroom with shower over bath and WC. The inner hallway has stairs to the first floor, following these up guests will find a spacious bedroom with super-king-size bed with TV. The exposed beams and timbers continue through to the twin bedroom which can only be accessed through the first bedroom, and is therefore ideal for children.

The grounds of the cottage are as equally charming as the cottage itself and those who enjoy relaxing outside will be spoilt for choice. The decking area, with garden furniture, sun loungers and Lay-Z-Spa, in which to soak away any stress, enjoys uninterrupted views across farmland and is the perfect spot to watch the world go by. At the rear you will also find the three acre paddock which you have access to. Alternatively, the side and front gardens have been thoughtfully landscaped to provide a colourful backdrop to al fresco dining with rose arch, planted beds and fruit trees.

We booked this lovely cottage for a whole week from 11th Sept and had a fantastic, relaxing time. We wanted peace, quite, privacy and local walks, with a comfortable base and thats exactly what we got. This was the most secluded cottage we have ever rented, with gardens to the front & side and a large field with setting sun to the rear. We were verRead morey lucky with the weather and spent most of the days outside but internally, the cottage is very comfortable.....Highly recommended. Hide

We did enjoy ourselves, the peace and quite was lovely even though it was a little remote, and no shops or pub restaurants close by had to get taxis or drive.

The cottage was excellent,a home from home,not far from the towns of bedford and St Neots but far enough away to think you are the only people on the planet.

Beautiful, charming and historic cottage with a lovely atmosphere and very helpful owners. Surrounded by acres of farmland but only a short drive from St Neots, Cambridge, Bedford, Huntingdon and Milton Keynes. The hot tub was a welcome bonus and there's lots of room in the garden for outdoor games, etc. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

Would definitely recommend.. was exactly as we had expected - good value for money for a charming cottage with simple layout and a great field/garden at the rear for playing games. Be mindful of the bedroom arrangements to ensure it works for your family (eg twin back bedroom accessed through master bedroom only) It worked for us ! We used as a basRead moree for biking, kayaking, and visiting the safari park and a local farm. nice pub in Great Bardon too. :-) Hide

Perfect little cottage a short drive from St Neots and Bedford . No pub or town within walking distance but ten minutes into Bedford to stock up or take a Riverside walk. Very warm and cozy we went in December and didnt need the heating on

The cottage was of a reasonable size and was comfortable but a bit out of the way. It was not walking distance to a pub as stated. There was a very quiet bar/restaurant 2 doors away but this was unfortunately only open on Saturday from 6pm to 9pm and was empty. I would not say it was anything like a pub.
