I am a designer currently working at a country school putting an environmental project in the grounds.
I also make natural products and have been a beekeeper for several years now. I grow my own vegetables and love to cook.
A lovely warm welcome, made to feel very welcome by Melanie and other guests.
The house is lovely and a work in progress inside re; decorating. In an excellent location close to loads of amenities
Would highly recommend and can't speak highly enough of Melanie the home owner.
Response from Melanie:
Ah! Thanks Neil! we'll get you up the pub yet!! : )
There isn't enough I can say about my host Melanie other then to say if you don't lodge with her you really don't know what your missing out on!
She went above, and beyond what she needed to do as a host to make me feel physically, and mentally right at home.
I couldn't have asked for a better host then Melanie because without her assistance when I needed it I wouldn't have been able to accomplish what I did without her guidance.
I could write pages worth of wonderful this regarding Melanie other then to say that she as a very big heart for everyone.
This house reminds me to "Phoebe Buffay" style, it has a lot of character. The location is excelent, lots of takeaways and shops close by.
Mel is very attentive and thoughtful, five start to her!
The room, kitchen and bathroom are perfectly fine for a short stay. There is street parking available, you can ask the host if she can arrage a temporary permit if you are leaving your car park from mon- sat 8am to 6pm.
I didn't notice I could have ask for cleaning for a fee. If I stay there again I'll ask for it, is not expensive at all.
In general good value for an extremely good price, definitely!
Lovely town house in central Bedford, very convenient for Cranfield University students (such as myself) - takes 20 minutes to drive to/from campus. Melanie is a lovely host, would highly recommend.
Melanie was an absolutely delightful and fantastic host. She comes across more as a friend than a host. Very accommodating, friendly, approachable and always willing to help make your stay is as pleasant as possible.
The property is very well located within 10 minute walk from all the main shops and bus stop. The train station is a 15 minute walk away. Everything you need is easy to access.
The house is an old georgian building and as a results comes with its quirks but is also very charming. Being an old house it does have a few things that you wouldn't expect from a modern building- for example the floors are all wooden so you can easily hear anyone walking about in the house. However, Melanie's hospitality more than makes up for any shortcomings with the building.
If you are looking to stay in an quirky georgian house with a very hospitable host then this would definitely be an experience to remember.
Muy buena ubicación y ambiente. Cocina pequeñilla y poco equipada, anfitriona simpática.
Alojamiento céntrico y anfitriona simpática y atenta. Cocina e intsalaciones mejorables pero aún así estancia muy satisfactoria.
Lovely and welcoming host, and very well located house.
