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.

                                                              Unique house perfect for a group

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              We spent last weekend at Gostelow House (Aug 17) and had an amazing time. We travelled as a group of 14 for a very relaxed hen weekend and our party included 3 small babies. The house is definitely unique and the garden is beautiful. It is a home rather than a holiday rental and this is worth noting as there are personal belongings in everywhere in the house. Carole, the owner, is very helpful and friendly. She provided us with lots of information beforehand and answered all the questions I had. She very generously provided us with champagne and allowed us to use her extensive kitchenware during our visit. We unfortunately had an accident whilst there involving one of her lovely plate decorations and she was very understanding about it. She was also kind enough to organise meeting in London to return some items that had been left behind. During our stay, we had a BBQ, made a 3 course homecooked meal and played games. We ventured out to Bedford one afternoon for tea (about half an hour away). I'd recommend this property to anyone hoping to a have a getaway somewhere a little bit different.

                                                              Amazing stay, don't think it could have been better in any way

                                                              Fantastic house. Great layout with plenty of bathrooms. Bedrooms all had lots of storage. Kitchen well equipped. Superbly clean. Owners so, so obliging.
