“We had a lovely stay with Christina. The space is really well designed, has all your could wish for and is wonderfully private, in beautiful countryside. We arrived part by car and part by train into Bedford and both were very easy, and we managed to visit all three local pubs, the air museum, local churches, walks and take in a rugby match. Loved it, thank you so much.”

“Karen’s place is a cosy gem of a place, one that we would definitely return to. The sun was setting just out of the window of the barn when we arrived and it was just bliss! Perfect for a peaceful relaxing getaway. Super comfy bed and beautifully decorated throughout. Karen was kind and very quick to help when the WiFi didn’t work-soon had it fixed within 5 mins. We were made to feel very welcome, they also left wine and snacks for our stay which was a lovely surprise. Highly recommended!”
Originally built as a Beauty Salon the accommodation is peaceful and tranquil.... cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Converted in 2017 because my son was threatening to come home from university.... he changed his mind so now the self contained accommodation is available for you to enjoy in our beautiful village of Ickwell.
“Really cosy place. Quiet allocation with a short walk to the local pub where we had a lovely dinner (The Crown). Lots of little touches like a coffee machine, fridge stocked with essentials, twinkling lights built into the ceiling in the bedroom, like a spa! Overall a lovely stay, perfect for a romantic weekend away.”
