This beautiful thatched cottage oozes charm and character creating the perfect surroundings for a romantic or relaxing break in the Heart of England.

This chocolate-box cottage is located in the heart of Bedfordshire, amongst rolling countryside. It sleeps four across two bedrooms, ideal for a small family or a couple looking for a romantic break that includes their beloved canine too. With countryside walks right on the doorstep, Fido will be in his element sniffing hedgerows and chasing rabbits through the paddock.
It’s not just a treat for your four-legged friend though – with your own private hot tub, you can kick back with a glass of wine to recharge your batteries.

The thatched cottage is bursting with original features which give the property plenty of character. Exposed wooden beams run throughout while an inglenook fireplace with the original bread oven takes centre stage in the lounge. Comfortable sofas beckon after a day of exploring, while Fido rests at your feet on the large living room rug. The traditional cottage kitchen houses a table for dining in or, on sunny evenings, head outside to the rear decked area which offers uninterrupted views across the thoughtfully landscaped garden. You will be sure to wake feeling refreshed after a deep slumber in the cosy beds; don’t forget to bring Fido’s bed so he can catch up on his beauty sleep too.

The closest town of Bedford is renowned for having one of the finest riverside settings in the country (7 miles) while Cambridge (26 miles) has plenty for everyone to see, too. Walkers, horse riders, cyclists and stick-chasers will all be well catered for at Hinchingbrooke Country Park (16 miles), the Millennium Country Park (17 miles) or the beautiful Stanwick Lakes (17 miles).

Thank you to the hosts, they were very accommodating. The cottage itself has lots of character and is very pretty.

Cornfields (or Thatched) Cottage is a lovely choice if you desire to holiday somewhere where you can completely relax and remain cottage bound when you're not taking your dog on a walk in one of the nearby fields. The Cottage is comfortable and has a nice ambience about it but be sure to pack lots of your own comforts including extra garden lights Read moreand incense for your hot tub evenings The proprietors are lovely but there are a few roach issues which should be addressed.
