Superbly appointed throughout, this lovely cottage in Bedfordshire combines contemporary styling with period features including leaded windows and a Butler sink. The large farmhouse kitchen with its central dining table is just the place to enjoy a sumptuous meal and talk about the day’s events, or if the weather turns a little cooler, settle down in front of the welcoming glow of the stove in the sitting room. Two cosy bedrooms offer a good night’s sleep and for those who like to pamper themselves, this cottage in Bedfordshire is just for you as it boasts a superb double-ended bath alongside a walk-in shower. Outside this Biggleswade holiday home is a typical English cottage garden, complete with vegetable plot.

The town of Biggleswade is within walking distance and here you will find an assortment of shops, restaurants and pubs. Just a short drive away is the historic city of Cambridge, where you can take a punt down the River Cam, or wander around the cathedral or museums. A fourty minute train journey brings you to London where you can visit the Tower, ride the London Eye, see the changing of the Guard and still be back in time for dinner! Whatever you do, this Biggleswade cottage will have you wanting to return time and again.
