Правила дома

Please treat this home with respect for the love and care we have lavished on it. We love it and hope you will too.

My father, who is nearly a hundred so we cut him some slack, has expressed a preference for his rooms not to be let (even when he is away) as he has so many valuables and papers. There are plenty more rooms at your disposal and we are confident you will still fit everyone in.

The house is well sound-proofed (it was used as a dance studio by the previous occupants) but the garden is not! Please be considerate towards our neighbours if you are in the garden late at night: in accordance with guidelines set down for residential areas we ask, please, that you don't make a noise in the garden (or conservatory) after 11 o'clock at night. You are very welcome to move into our large dining-drawing room and continue celebrating there.



Если вы отменяете бронирование за 7 дней до поездки или раньше, то мы вернем 50% суммы бронирования. Если вы отменяете бронирование меньше чем за 7 дней до поездки, то деньги не возращаются.

We received a warm welcome from Anne, who is very helpful. The house is lovely, rather quirky with a large garden. The accommodation is versatile and sleeps a large number of people. Anne prepared a wonderful evening meal for us on the Saturday evening. However, none of us had appreciated 'owners in residence' would mean living alongside the family and sharing the kitchen and bathroom. I made the assumption (wrongly) that the family would be living in a separate part of the house. Fourteen of us ( across four generations), a young dog and then family members and Horatio, their enormous but very endearing Great Dane, was a few too many at times... The scullery area is very cramped and needs updating. There are only two showers, one of which is in a very small ensuite. The level of cleanliness was not the usual standard expected from air B and B properties. Nevertheless , for various reasons, we have enjoyed a memorable weekend! Just be prepared to be 'house guests' rather than renting a private self catering let.

Ответ от Anne:
Thank you, Mark and Alison, for the lovely and helpful review. Just as a point of information for other guests: we only used the kitchen during their stay to cook food for the guests themselves (as my husband and I had all our meals out)! I have often said that the one room in this otherwise enormous house which isn't generously proportioned is the Georgian scullery (as you can only comfortably fit two or three people in it at a time, and NO GREAT DANES – I keep telling him)... though I confess we consider ourselves more fortunate than 99% of the population in having a scullery at all. I am genuinely dismayed about the comment regarding cleanliness as we work very hard at this (not easy in such a large, old house) and our cleaner is amazing and works at least 20 hours a week (often more) but uniquely she was very ill for the day before check-in so perhaps that is why.

The house was very suitable for a large group to stay in. Some attention is needed to cleanliness around the house whilst all beds and bathrooms were clean the kitchen needed a deeper clean. The garden was a great area. Whilst we were staying the house was going under renovations which is needed to Keep it to the standard that has been advertised. The house was not as expected from the photos. All in all we had a good stay and enjoyed the use of the house. The rooms advertised are not all very private so it is important your group are happy to share and don't mind walking through each other's rooms. Please also keep in mind that parking in the area is limited.

Ответ от Anne:
Thank you, Catriona and your group, for being such super guests. We are very proud of our home’s 200 year old heritage and are constantly working (and reinvesting our Airbnb income) to restore its original features: this year, for instance, opening up the Georgian larder, restoring the adorable bedroom balconettes and opening another bedroom fireplace. We carefully scheduled further work (stripping three bedroom floors and removing the 1970s woodchip wallpaper) for when we had no bookings... but it turned out to be a much longer job than our workman had anticipated as the original lathe and plaster was very crumbly. We did everything we could to minimise the disruption to our guests, and I apologise if our kitchen was not up to its usual standard (we work extremely hard on cleanliness too). In keeping with other large period houses, the top floor was designed for staff, with little priority given to privacy! We have introduced one folding wall and plan another; to do more would violate the character of the house so there remains one attic room which acts as access to another. This is very clear on the room list, available on request. There is usually parking for up to about seven cars (please check first) and free street-parking a couple of minutes’ walk away. Our photographs are taken by the official Airbnb photographer, and don’t always reflect recent improvements we have made.

Incredible home to have for the weekend. Beautifully decorated, absolutely huge - almost a maze - and a rambunctious garden filled with all sorts from doves to a duck and more. Anne was also very detailed in her responses to all questions. There were a couple of requests or times when neighbours or PA's had to come in to do admin tasks but it was never intrusive so no complaints there. Walking distance from Bedford station meant it's a really straightforward weekend away from London too.

We were a large group of 20 people celebrating a birthday. Anne was a fabulous host, very good at communicating and catering to all needs. The house is beautiful - intellectually stimulating with its wondrous decor, musical instruments and rich history. The tennis court is a giant lawn with a tennis net, which is great fun for those who want some physical activities. The pool is at the end of the garden and is great to cool off in afterwards. The garden is beautiful and will pique any keen gardener's interest. There are two bathrooms and one outside loo. There is a spacious patio for eating outside, as well as a stunning dining room, which is very well soundproofed so you don't worry about making too much noise. All in a all, everybody had an amazing time and can't wait to come back!!

Ответ от Anne:
Dear Michelle, Thank you for this lovely, lovely review. (Just what I would have expected from such lovely and fascinating guests – and wasn't your birthday weekend a ball? We certainly loved having you all!) Minor geeky point of information for those of an arithmetical-and-sanitary turn of mind: Airbnb counts a loo as half a bathroom, and a bathroom or shower room (with or without loo, I believe) as a whole bathroom. On this computation, I count (and advertise) our bathrooms as four (two loos, a shower room, a bathroom with loo, and a shower with loo en suite to one of the bedrooms); though when my father is away it's actually five.

I am a novelist, writer and broadcaster. My husband Shaun is an Anglican clergyman and we have five children. Having been brought up in a head master's house and brought up our family in a working Vicarage, I am very used to sharing our home and love to see it used and full of interesting people. Our home is never dull, and never empty...
