White Cottage is a Grade II listed cottage in rural Hertfordshire. A lovely getaway for families, friends or couples. Cambridge is a half hour drive, London is 40 minutes away by train and there are plenty of picturesque villages to explore nearby.
White Cottage is a 17th Century cottage in a small hamlet on the edge of Bishops Stortford. The cottage is formed of the main house and an adjoining annex. It has all the charms and character of an old cottage but with all the mod cons you could need.
In the main house upstairs there is the master bedroom with a luxury ensuite bathroom, a single bedroom next door, and if you are staying with a baby there is a lovely nursery with a cot.
Downstairs there is the beautiful family bathroom with a roll top bath, perfect for having a relaxing soak. There is a breakfast room which seats 5 and has a cosy reading nook. The main living room has a lovely wood burner for cosy nights in. There is a wide screen TV.
The kitchen is well equipped and has all the necessary mod cons. There is a gorgeous double oven, a dishwasher and a pantry with a Smeg fridge and all the crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment you would expect to use.
The adjoining annex has a double bedroom with a bathroom next door. The dining room is in this part of the house and is perfect for a big family. Next door is the cinema room, it is well equipped with a top of the range projector, surround sound, a large DVD collection and there is a large corner sofa.
The garden is secluded and quiet, with lovely views across the fields. It is a typical English cottage style garden, there is a picnic table, 2 deck chairs, a swing, a hammock and a gazebo to enjoy a glass of wine in the evenings.
We also have a gym outside which is equipped with a treadmill, spin bike, punch bag, TV and Ipod dock.
We have 3 chickens which are housed in the run, it is up to you if you would like to let them out and lock them up during your stay, if not we have someone who is happy to do this every day.
There is parking for 3 cars on the driveway.
