About This Listing
Beautiful 4 bed house in Studham, Bedfordshire, only 15 mins from a mainline train station which links directly to London in only 35 mins.
House benefits from large open plan living, indoor heated swimming pool, 4 large double bedrooms, home theatre system and a very large garden which is home to a bunch of chickens and roosters, 2 cats, a pond full of fish and 2 Alpacas!
The property is located in a traditional English village, located near Whipsnade Zoo and about 10 mins by car to Luton Airport.
What to see and do :
Whipsnade park Golf Club
Plenty of walks
Dunstable Downs - great for kite flying and pic-nics!
Breakfast will be provided, of course with fresh eggs from the chickens.
Full office facilities are available including free wifi!
Rooms for rent have own digital TV, direct access to the swimming pool, spa and gym. The rooms are very large so if you want to bring a travel cot you will still have plenty of room. Also able to provide portable beds if you wanted additional beds in any of the rooms for the children. You will also have access to shared kitchen, living space and very large garden. Please note, all the bedrooms have two doors - one normal door leading into the bedroom from the main hall way in the house and a set of patio doors leading out onto the pool. These patio doors can be locked and the key removed if you are worried about the children wondering into the pool area without supervision!
You will have your own private bathroom although this is not en -suite. However I will only let out to one party at a time so you will never be sharing a bathroom with strangers! If you are a large party don’t worry we have 3 bathrooms plus 2 additional WC rooms so you will never be short of a shower or loo!
Please note that the pool is not heated during the colder months, however I will make sure that the spa pool is nice and hot for you!
Smoking is allowed
Pets are NOT allowed
Please note - I do have two cats so if you are allergic then I don't think this will be the best place for you. Although the cats are generally not allowed into the bedrooms.
The whole house! This includes pool area, gym, kitchen, living room, BBQ and garden. Please do note that I also live here so I will be around some of the time.... don't worry I am very easy going and friendly!
Interaction with Guests
The majority of time I will be at the property but I am usually involved with some DIY project or with the office which tends to keep me very busy!
Lovely traditional English village with 2 great pubs, surrounded by beautiful countryside with easy access to London.
The nearest train station is about a 15 minute drive away. This takes you directly into central London in about 30 minutes. Public transport within in the village is VERY limited so I would not advise you staying unless you have a car.
Relax and enjoy yourself!
We had the place to ourselves and had a lovely time. It was a great little getaway from London. Nice pool, village nearby, cats and alpacas to keep you entertained, and little woodland running behind the property. Recommended.
We, a family of seven had a great time in Liesa's home. Nothing was a problem and Liesa went out of her way to accommodate us all.
Liesa has a beautiful home which she has and still is working very hard to maintain. There are many different areas where you can relax, the bedrooms are spacious and the indoor pool is great fun!
Liesa makes a delicious breakfast and even supplies bathrobes and slippers!
We were made to feel welcome and relax as if we were in our own home. A great host...thank you Liesa we will be back!xx
Liesa was a fantastic host for our 2 night stay. We had so much fun at her beautiful home and we were made to feel very welcome indeed. The indoor pool area was great and the whole house has had a lot of love put into it which really shows :)
Will miss the alpacas and the lovely garden as well Liesa. What a beautiful place she has..will certainly be visiting again in the near future!
We had a lovely time at Liesa and Mark's home. They made us feel very welcome and were able to suggest places to visit in the surrounding area. The pool was amazing!! And all the animals (cats, chickens and alpacas) made our stay very entertaining :) Would highly recommend.
Our family of six enjoyed our stay at Liesa's home, as we felt very much at home there. We were able to come and go as we pleased and we were welcome to use her kitchen when needed. The bedrooms are large and when opened up into the pool area, it is like we had our own sitting room. There is so much space in the house and outside as well that you never feel as if you are on top of each other.
We had some beautiful walks into the village centre, as well as on the various wooded trails. Studham truly is a nice little village, yet close enough to the train station and motorways for easy and quick access into London or other surrounding towns.
Thank you Liesa for the splendid English breakfasts, and the countless cups of tea that we drank. My family was spoiled during those days!
We arrived down in Studham to attend my daughters passing out parade. Our party consisted of two pensioners, my thirteen year old son and my wife and I. We had seen the pictures on line but that still did not prepare us properly. This house is fantastic, full of charm and character. We loved it from the off. Liesa kept in touch before we arrived enquiring if there was anything that she could do to make our stay all the more perfect, its a nice touch. The rooms are beautiful and the beds are really comfortable, There are fresh towels for everyone and big fluffy robes and slippers to make you feel at home, Tv in all the rooms and a lovely big bathroom with a cracking shower. We used the indoor pool which was really nice and again there were towels available. Hot tub and gym were also there. Fabulous sun trap of a back garden where we enjoyed the company of two alpacas and some chickens Liesa allowed us to feed them apples my son in particular loved this. This really is a home from home and I would have been more than happy continuing my break there a while longer. Studham is a very quiet village with two pubs, we enjoyed a meal in The Bell and everyone was very friendly and the food was well priced and tasty. This is a great location for a break with the airport being about 20 minutes away, Whipsnade zoo and London not far. We had a reason to be here this time but have already thought that we would struggle to find a better and more hospitable place to spend a few days off. On behalf of the family thank you Liesa (and Mark) for a thoroughly enjoyable stay. You know where we are if you need a break !
We had an absolutely lovely stay with Liesa. She and her partner Mark were extremely accommodating and allowed us to host a surprise baby shower for our friends, which meant we took up most of the living space as well as outside. The house and garden are amazing. We loved having he opportunity o feed the alpacas in the morning. We didn't have a chance to try the local pubs but they looked really nice and we are hoping to be able to stay again. Can't thank Leisa enough for the hospitality. Xx
