The Pool House


East Anglia, Hertfordshire

Nestled within the generous grounds of the owners home in the peaceful hamlet of Bendish rests this stylish property, The Pool House. Idyllically positioned in a rural setting and enveloped by scenic countryside, The Pool House makes for a lovely base to enjoy an escape from reality with both family and friends.

Renovated to a high standard with quality fittings and furnishings and offering a luxurious setting for a staycation, park up on your private driveway before unloading your belongings and making your way inside your new home-from-home for the duration of your trip. Enter the property through the spacious kitchen, beautifully-presented with a gleaming and contemporary interior, stylishly tiled throughout and home to an elegant island taking centre stage in the sociable space.

Make use of the range of modern amenities provided, including a handy dishwasher so there’s no time wasted doing the washing up, and gather together with your loved ones to indulge in a heart-warming meal, or carry the conversation outdoors for a spot of alfresco dining in the peaceful setting of your private courtyard. Soak in the last of the evening sun as you recount the day’s adventures over a bottle of wine before heading back indoors to prepare for bed.

Climb the stairs to the first floor where you’ll find the master bedroom, boasting a contemporary en-suite bathroom fit with a bath and a walk-in shower, so you can choose between a luxurious soak or a quick rinse, as well as a further double and single bedroom benefiting from Jack-and-Jill access to the shower room. In the morning, kick-start your day by swimming a few lengths in the pool, or walk amongst the dew with a scenic stroll through the landscaped gardens surrounding the owners home, stopping to feed the ducks and meet the goats, alpacas and horses as they roam.

A short journey from your doorstep will bring you into the heart of the nearby village of Whitwell, traditionally decorated with half-timbered and early brick houses dating back to the eighteenth century; here you’ll find your local amenities, including a well-stocked convenience store to pick up and last-minute essentials and a traditional country pub to enjoy an evening tipple or a bite to eat. Keep entertained with a visit to the bustling town of Luton, where you can treat yourself to a spot of retail therapy at The Mall, immerse yourself in the regional history on display at Stockwood Discovery Centre, or watch the world go by amongst the tranquil grounds of Wardown Park. Just outside the town is ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, stretching over six hundred acres and playing home to a staggering two thousand five hundred animals; come face-to-face with the Giraffes or try your hand at zoo-keeping with a thrilling experience day! Further afield is the charming market town of Hitchin, home to two fascinating museums outlining both local and national history; make a splash at the outdoor swimming pool, catch a spot of live sport at Hitchin Town Football Club, or board the train and explore the delights of the surrounding area. With Luton Airport Parkway train station around twelve minutes from the property, this provides access to London within around twenty minutes.
