Just like a picture post card, Christmas Cottage sounds perfect and is perfect. Jane and Vernon the most obliging hosts, we stayed one night New Years Eve, on arrival were greeted with a glass of Champagne, shown to our lovely size double room - spotlessly clean. Breakfast - nothing was to much to ask for - topped of with the... More

Christmas Cottage dates back around 400 years and you can really feel this history in the cottage, in Ayot St. Peter, the village green and the local pub. A terrifically friendly welcome is given to guests and the warmth extends to the living room with its open fire, the bedrooms (not modern but certainly not ancient) and the breakfast -... More

Booked Christmas cottage to stay in when attending our daughter Hollys graduation. Nothing was too much trouble for Jane & Vernon who were the most accommodating & generous of hosts to my daughters who whilst not staying there were invited to share breakfast on Sunday with us. A well deserved 5 stars! Highly recommended. We shall be back! Thank you... More

I recently stayed at Christmas cottage with my boyfriend, who had previously stayed here with his family, so I had been told how lovely it is. We arrived early on a Saturday morning and our room was cleaned and ready for us to check in, we stayed out in the summer house which over looked the pool and hot tub... More

Had a fantastic two night stay. Great hosts, so helpful and welcoming. Would recommend and will be back. Great location with two places to eat within walking distance. It really was a home from home. Very good choice for breakfast and again nothing was too much trouble.

The owners were away so Mel was our host. She was a great host and nothing was too much trouble. Lots of choice at breakfast from cereals, fruit, toast to full english. I stayed in the Tiffany room which has an ensuite and beamed ceiling. Lovely welcoming, laid back atmosphere. Would definitely stay here again if im in the area.

I received such a warm welcome from Jane and Vernon, it was like staying with family. My room was a lovely beamed ceiling, very comfy bed and nice ensuite. Lovely breakfast with a big choice of whatever you might want. I will definitely be staying there again. Two minute walk from a nice pub which does great food.

Only stayed for one night but what a lovely treat it was. I stayed with my eight-year daughter and our dog while visiting family in nearby Hertford. Jane and Vernon were extremely generous - opening up the pool for us at 8am on the Saturday morning so we could squeeze in a swim before our breakfast (what a feast, by... More

We only stayed one night, in the area for a wedding but had a lovely room, set in the garden with two walls of windows giving us views of the lovely garden and the swimming pool. The garden has lots of seating areas, had we been there longer it would have been very pleasant to have spent more time there,... More

Spent a lovely weekend at this comfortable cottage with a beautiful garden. Jane and Vernon were kind and caring. We enjoyed the pool, a great breakfast, country walks from the doorstep and good pubs nearby.
