The space

Situated next to our Country House in Hertfordshire, (just on the outskirts of London - about 20 miles from Marble Arch), this is a detached, modern, bright short-stay home on two floors about a couple of miles from the Harry Potter experience at Warner Bros Studios. A brilliantly designed open plan kitchen and living area, together with a delightful master bedroom suite are on the ground floor. Upstairs boasts another double bedroom, a shower room and a further smaller bedroom.

Enjoy passing our contended free range hens, as you take a walk through our grounds.

Minutes from the new Harry Potter Experience at the Warner Bros Film Studios in Leavesden, and close to the TV & Film studios of Elstree, Borehamwood, we are in the heart of the UK's movie land. Who knows who may be checking out as you arrive?

A perfect base for those clients requiring the discretion, privacy and anonymity unavailable in a luxury hotel. The proximity of local corporate HQ’s also make it an ideal retreat for the overseas business traveller requiring the solitude to relax while away from home.

Three double Bedrooms, two Bathrooms
Fully fitted Kitchen with Dishwasher
Laundry facilities available
Complimentary Wifi
Secure, Gated Grounds
Fresh New Laid Eggs from our own Hens!

Garry and Lynne are fantastic hosts. Upon arrival, we were met with warm hospitality (with home-baked cake, chocolates, and free-range eggs the next morning!). They are always around and happy to answer any questions or have a chit-chat, yet without feeling our privacy was being …

This was our third stay at The Lodge and Gary and Lynne continued to be the ideal hosts and the facilities were as good as on our previous visits. The location is very rural and private but convenient for local towns, stations, and attractions. The fresh eggs are a welcome bonus…

This was our second stay at the Lodge and confirmed our views of the accommodation. Lynne and Gary could not be more welcoming and the facility is spacious, well appointed, and spotlessly clean. The fresh eggs in the morning are a bonus. Being part of a farm complex is an attra…
