Set in the pretty rural hamlet of Thorncote Green Bedfordshire, Pippins studio flat is a great place 2-3 people to stay with a swimming pool, hot tub and sauna for B&B guests and easy access to London.

The space

This spacious property is a studio flat situated on the ground floor of Pippins. With its own private wheel chair friendly access, the studio also has a kitchen with electric hob , fridge freezer, microwave etc which leads to a very spacious bedroom/living room with a very comfortable (DB Dreamworks Beds) pull down double bed. We can also add a further bed for children. Views from the studio are of the pretty garden to the rear and the attractive village green to the front. The bathroom has full disabled access with shower.

Guest access

The guest has private access to the studio from outside the house so can come and go independently. They can also use an indoor swimming pool, hot tub and sauna for free.

Interaction with guests

I live in Pippins and I will meet my guests at the property. I cook an excellent breakfast using local ingredients. I can also provide an evening meal on request for an additional charge.

Other things to note

Pippins is only 5 minutes off the A1 which makes it an easy and luxurious stop off on a long journey and also easy access to drive to London approx 1hr or by train from Biggleswade 28-45 mins depending on which train you take. London Luton airport is approximately 45min drive and London Stanstead approximetely 1hr drive.
Parking is on a private driveway and also garage can be provided should you need it.
We ask that you replace anything which you damage so that it will be available for the next guests. thankyou!

My friends and I were looking for a relaxing weekend away and the stay at Pippins was just that! Zuzana was a great host and made sure we had a comfortable stay. We travelled via train but it is difficult to get around the area without a car and taxi's are hard to book as there are a limited amount. Zuzana went out of her way to drive us to the supermarket and pick up our takeaway on our first night. We had such a lovely relaxing weekend away. The hot tub and swimming pool were great!! We will definitely come again (with a car next time)!

Mayuri thank you. I am so pleased you and your friend enjoyed The Pippins. When you come next time by train (very easy from King´s cross only 40min) let me know and I will pick you up or give you numbers for taxi :). Look forward to meet you again :)

Highly recommend this B&B and the lovely host Zuzana. Plenty of space in our room, nice garden to explore, swimming pool & hot tub to enjoy. Breakfast was excellent as well - full english with toast, fruit & cereal. And the rural location was perfect for us. If we ever need to stay in this part of the world again we will most definitely be re-booking this place.

We visited The Pippins in April 2016 and had a wonderful, relaxing stay. Zuzana is friendly and welcoming and made us a lovely breakfast each morning. The pool and hot tub were clean and warm and we had full use of them during our stay. The room, bathroom and kitchen were spotless and the bed was comfortable. Beautiful villages around the area and we visited the Shuttleworth airfield and gardens which was a lovely outing. We will definitely be back!

Brought the family to stay at Easter. There was plenty of room for parents and two young kids (2 and 5). The flat was lovely - huge en-suite bathroom, kitchen and dining area with everything we needed -we cooked and ate in every night. And Zuzana was happy to let us use the swimming pool and jacuzzi which the kids absolutely loved. Zuzana made us feel very welcome and cooked delicious breakfasts. There is a big garden to play in and a village green right outside to explore. The location is ideal for exploring Bedford and the surrounding countryside, and only 30 minutes drive from Cambridge. Overall we had a great time - would recommend to anyone and looking forward to coming back again.

I booked Pippins for my sister and her husband who usually stay with us but unfortunately we had a house full. They both enjoyed their stay with Zuzana so much that they asked me to post this review on their behalf. " we were a little later than expected but nevertheless, a really good welcome from the lovely Zuzana and spotlessly clean warm and cosy room ( more like a small flat) with lovely crisp white bed linen and really nice fluffy towels (all the nice stuff you get in good hotels rather than expect at a b&b so really pleased with that). There was a fresh bunch of daffodils from the garden on the table which was a really nice touch and it goes without saying that floating around in the warm swimming pool after a sauna felt unbelievably good after the busy day we had. Breakfast was brilliant, all locally sourced from the nearby free range farm shop ( we went there later and saw all the free range chickens scratching around) and cooked to perfection, both admittedly fussy with our eggs but no problem for Zuzana! We would recommend Zuzana and the Pippins to anyone, it was a real treat for us and a big thank you to you Zuzana . "
