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.

The space

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.

White Cottage is a beautifully presented house, with all the charm of an old cottage with the benefit of modern luxuries. As with many a period building, tall people may need to mind their head in the odd place! Laura was a great host and she kindly left us a basket of goodies and some supplies in the fridge which was a lovely surprise. The cinema room was a real treat for my children and the garden was lovely; I bet it is great in the summer. Beware: the door between house and annexe has a Yale lock; don't leave the key the wrong side of the door! It is in a convenient location and was the perfect place to get ready for my wedding. All in all, we would recommend the place highly!

We have a wonderful stay at White Cottage. Laura was a great host, we loved the tea loaf she left for us. The house was perfect with our 18 month old (Bee) and so helpful having stair gates and a cot for her, and of course the toys! Bee especially liked seeing the chickens!

We had a wonderful time in the cottage. Laura was a great host and left us some provisions in the fridge which was a nice surprise. The kids loved the movie room, we had fresh eggs from the chickens every day, the beds were comfy. All in all it was just what we wanted a cosy cottage experience in a small village but only 40 mins by train to London.... What a gem!! We will be back :)

We thought the house and garden were beautiful and would definitely recommend this as a relaxing and comfortable place to stay. We enjoyed watching a film altogether in the cinema room, which the kids thought was awesome for PS3 games too. It didn't bother us, as we only stayed for 2 nights, but we were surprised that there wasn't a washing machine, which perhaps those staying for a longer period would want the use of.
