Farm house annexe in beautiful peaceful rural setting. Newly converted to 1 bedroom, shower room, open plan kitchen living area. Garden. Self-contained accomodation ideal for short breaks, business trips or a country weekend. Pet friendly for 1 friendly house trained dog. 24 hours between bookings as Covid guidelines.

The space
Set in an idyllic location in Wheathampstead, a quiet village on the river Ver situated just between Saint Albans and Harpenden, this once was a farm hands cottage, then a wartime working farm for Italian POWs, (many of whom stayed on after the war to create ice-cream empires in Luton!), then an ARP warden's office connected to the farm's bomb shelter, and now converted by one of the owners (a professional interior stylist) into a beautiful single bedroom apartment with ensuite shower, toilet and basin. The property is surrounded by country views and yet is less that 45 minutes from the attractions of central London via St Albans and Harpenden or alternatively via fast trains at Hatfield that link to the Victoria or Piccadilly tube networks. By car, you are ten minutes from either the A1, M1 or M25.

details

The accommodation comprises one large living room/ kitchen, a 32 inch HD TV with built in FreeSat, DVD player, a comfortable leather armchair & sofa, wood burning stove, dining table and benches, digital vinyl record player with several great albums included (but you’re welcome to be bring your your own). Kitchen is brand new with dishwasher and washing machine. Double bedroom and ensuite shower room.

The annexe is separate but directly adjacent to the main 19th century farmhouse which is in turn surrounded by 2 1/2 acres of ex-farmland. Its a non working farm. Just installed new fast BT Wholehome WiFi as of January 2019 and a mobile phone booster aerial.

Large garden front, 2 fields plenty of places to sit. Gas or Webber BBQ.

Continental style breakfast provided & tea, coffee milk.

Things to do

The rural surroundings are popular for walking, golfing, riding, exploring, and of course drinking. The independent highly rated Farr Brew microbrewery actually grow some of their Hops on our farm. Taste it at their nearby tap room.

And speaking of tasty, at the end of our road is one of the most raved-about Italian restaurants in south east England - L'Olivo.

St Albans is a vibrant and well-connected town which has all the major brands represented plus the unique history of having been the Roman capital of Britain. In fact the Brits were finally defeated by Caesar on Dyke lane, our road. The Odyssey cinema was saved by investment from film fans from conversion into flats to the biggest independent cinema in Europe.

facilities

If you’re staying here on business the house has Wi-Fi at fast rates thanks to a 4g connection.

Guest access
Private access to annexe. Shared use of front garden which is fenced off with stock fencing so safe for dogs. Patio with table & chairs. All ground floor no steps or stairs.

Other things to note
We have a friendly dog and 1 cat. We work from home so we around in our farm house if guests need anything. We only allow 1 friendly dog but please contact me if you need to discuss this? No puppies because of chewing furniture!
We are not set up for young children or babies as we don't have a cot or baby bath but you are welcome to bring your own? I can provide a small single mattress.
