Hitchin is a small town half way between London and Cambridge, and you are an interesting guest, then we'd like to hear from you.
The guest room is a lovely double room, tucked away at the back of the house overlooking the garden one way and with a view across the countryside the other way.
You and our teenager share the large main bathroom with shower, bath, sink and toilet, with natural light and again facing out over the garden.
You have use of the kitchen, and your own fridge for storing food.
The house is very close to the train station, which has fast trains into both London Kings Cross station one way, and Cambridge in the opposite direction. You can hear the trains, especially in the summer if you have the window open,
We are also on the right side of London for Luton and Stansted airports. Heathrow is about an hour away. There is a direct coach from Heathrow, Luton and Stansted airports to the stop at Hitchin station.
The town has a great selection of pubs and restaurants, all within walking distance and the Radcliffe Arms, an upmarket pub restaurant, within a couple of hundred yards. There is a Tesco Express next to the station for supplies.
My partner and I have really enjoyed our stay with Mark and Lorraine. They are both very friendly, welcoming, and eager to give tips and share their extensive knowledge of the UK.
Their house was very clean and well-kept. The area they live in is both nice and quiet and is close to everything in Hitchin including the rail station!
Hitchin itself is beautiful with many lovely walks through the countryside.
I strongly recommend both Mark and Lorraine and Hitchin to any travellers eager to experience real English hospitality.
We stayed 2 nights in the house of Mark and his family;
The house is located in a 4 min walk from the train station.
