Make A Holiday Rental House in Bedfordshire, United Kingdom, Your Home Away From Home

The county of Bedfordshire is located north of London, in an area of England that is affectionately known as the Home Counties. Bedfordshire has been given this title as it is within a comfortable commuting distance of the capital. Whilst there are a few older towns within the county (e.g. Bedford itself), there are a number of newer towns that were created in the area as a way of providing emergency housing for those that lost their homes during the terrible London Blitz of WWII (e.g. Dunstable). Rental houses in Bedfordshire will always be appointed to a good standard and should provide a fantastic base in order to go off and explore the surrounding area.

Fabulous cottage with lovely owners, in a great setting

5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay. The welcome pack, including home made apple juice and apple jar, was so lovely. We had an open fire going each evening and the owners were so helpful. I would recommend a stay. Suzan & Will

Great weekend get together, less than an hours drive from London

5 of 5
We were a group of eight looking to have a weekend reunion, somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of London but not too far so that we avoided losing most of our weekend in transit - Gostelow House, located a short distance from Luton was the ideal location. Set within its own secluded garden which comes with bbq options and a swimming pool to cool off in after a long walk in the surrounding countryside, Gostelow was perfect for a group of friends to get together, share a drink or two, cook some great food and unwind within the House's rustic charms. Carole, the property owner is super helpful and will tell you all you need to know about the local area and what it has to offer. Transport links are easy with the local train station only a few minutes taxi/Uber ride away and plenty of parking space if driving. Ocado also deliver to the house which is very convenient and means you can save on overloading your car or worrying about keeping food fresh on your travels, just book a delivery to coincide with when you arrive, sorted! All in all, we had a great weekend!
