We stayed at CC whilst attending a wedding at Brockett Hall (perfectly situated and more within our budget!). Our dog Molly came with us and Jane was kind enough to let her out in the evening for her 'toilette!' so we didn't have to return from the wedding. The breakfast was fabulous. It all made for a very enjoyable weekend.

I stayed in Christmas Cottage once a week for 3 years whilst I worked in the area. I have never felt so at home and so warmly welcomed in a guesthouse. It is a lovely, cosy and safe house and the breakfast is always served with a smile! The hosts are the most interesting, kind and fun people you could... More

Spent a night here recently, very much enjoyed my stay. Room was clean and comfortable. Venue is stunning as is location. Breakfast was really good quality as was the setting; a beautiful dinning room table in a wonderful conservatory, surrounded by nature and that morning, a fresh blanket of snow. See you again sometime. Mr Webb.

I was a regular guest a Christmas Cottage throughout 2014 as I was on business in Welwyn Garden City. I was seeking something more homely than a typical business hotel, and this charming period cottage was the perfect B&B experience. Jane and Vernon were just the most lovely hosts, from the first greeting to the last sad goodbye. Always welcoming... More

Charming, comfortable family home, a beautiful garden and surroundings and the wonderful Margaret cooking a great breakfast, what else does one need? Oh yes the pool and hot tub! This is a great location with easy access to London and excellent restaurants nearby. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Christmas Cottage.

Cannot speak highly enough of the place - lovely setting, nice garden, pool, hot tub - and really friendly. Full English if you want (individually cooked), masses of lovely fruit, fresh tea and coffee. We were made really at home - it was incredibly relaxing and we had come for a wedding! Christmas Cottage was built in 1707 but has... More
