About this listing

Stay in a typical British village and enjoy the countryside with London only a 30 minutes train ride away. Within 10minutes from my home you are in the High Street, where there are pubs and supermarkets, and within 12 minutes you get to train station. Enjoy your private ensuite loft style living whilst sharing the kitchen and dining room with other lodgers.

The space

A fantastic master bedroom with en-suite bathroom set in romantic village of Ingatestone, just 28 minutes by train away from London.

The master double bedroom comes with en-suite bathroom, and is large enough to put a baby cod or children's bed in, if required. The en-suite includes a toilet, shower and washbasin. Besides the double bed, there is a writing desk, sofa and small walk-in wardrobe in the room. If you are booking the accommodation for 3 adults, please note that there will be one queen size bed in the room and one single mattress.

Please note that there are other lodgers in the house, so expect to share the kitchen and dining room.

There is free wireless access in the house.

A travelcard with a discount network card for London from Ingatestone costs £16.50 or just £13 at the weekend - Children under the age of 15 travel for around £3 - and includes all bus, underground and DLR for all London Zones. Please note that travelcards are only available after the rush hour, getting you into London around 10.30am. If you want to head away from London, Chelmsford is one stop away and cost about £5 return or you can directly head to Ipswich and other places on the South East coast, like Norwich. Places like Norwich, Ipswich and smaller stations in beautiful Suffolk are easily reached by train.

If you travel by car, there is free off road parking in front of my house, or you would be welcome to park on my small drive way.

The accommodation suits anyone who wants to visit London, but does not fancy being right in the heart of a big city, or if you want to explore Essex country side. The house comes with a lovely south facing garden, providing a great retreat in the summer. If needed, I can arrange babysitting for the evenings - the London West End is reached in less than one hour with trains running to Ingatestone till about midnight.

I have used Air B and B throughout my travels and will be happy to advise on travel tips for the local area or London.

I can only recommend Martina's place. From booking to check out she was amazing. Replies almost instantly to all my messages. Giving me advice on how to get to her place. Offering me to pick me up at the train station. Booking her place can only be a great bargain for you: lovely house, amazing kitchen, the room was just wow !, and the private bathroom (with the heated floor :)) was just perfect. You will not be disappointed, guaranteed. On the day we've arrived, we took the apéro with her. It was really nice. Thank you for your accommodation Martina. Will definitely come back !

A perfect room in a great house, better than expected, a mini apartment really at the top of the house with its own bathroom and Sofa. Martina and her family were very friendly and made me feel like one of the family for the week, I would definitely recommend this place if you are in the area. Ingatestone was a lovely place to spend the week with lots of interesting shops.

My hatmaking studio is in a shared building with other designer-makers in Clerkenwell. I’m obsessed with finding quirky designs and crafts for my blog, What Martina Did Next. I’m also an Airbnb host for a hatmaking Experience.
