We have stayed in a few B&B's but this one is by far the best. Had a very warm welcome from Maria and Mark who were the best hosts. Our room was lovely, clean and very comfortable with TV, free wifi and Sky. You couldn't want for more. The breakfast in the morning was amazing. We would definitely stay here... More

Lovely big rooms, sky tv in the room, free wifi, car parking. The house was in immaculate condition. The hosts Maria and Mark, were lovely people... More

Great 'home away from home' Bed & Breakfast in Welwyn, UK. Lovely rooms, great service, brilliant breakfast, catering also for me as a vegetarian. Well done Maria and Mark for this great accommodation. Really enjoyed our stay and will hopefully be back.

Maria and Mark were amazingly welcoming and just lovely hosts! Our booking was all done rather last minute and they were brilliant to take us in, and at such a busy time! They also put us up in the downstairs room with the lovely outside garden, it was spacious, homely, and everything we needed and more. Breakfast in the morning... More

We descended on Mark and Maria like a tsunami, four adults and two small very active children for a 5 night stay. Their immaculate b & b had a lot to contend with but they handled it like seasoned professionals. The delightful rooms had everything you needed and the downstairs room with access to a private garden was perfect for... More

We would definitely come back. Room and facilities were exactly what we needed. Breakfasts were just lovely. Best thing of all were the hosts: welcoming, friendly and warm, while also giving us space to ourselves. They were also very accommodating of food allergy and made a special effort to provide what we needed. Thank you so much for having us!

Stayed at The Cookhouse last week by default as our other booking had to be cancelled but, boy, did we strike gold! Lovely Secret Garden room with lots of space and a good TV. Great shower with lashings of hot water. The crowning glory has to be the charming hosts who are simply wonderful - attentive, personable and generous, with... More

Maria and Mark were excellent hosts and couldn't have been more helpful. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent too. Unfortunately we left something behind, but Maria very kindly returned it by post immediately. We both highly recommend a stay at The Cookhouse.

Spent one night here and was very impressed. Maria and Mark are lovely people and Marks breakfast was delicious (Don't miss the Black Pudding). We had the double downstairs with a private bathroom next door. Not really on suite but the entrance although outside the room was very private. Lovely room, large comfortable bed and French Doors to a small... More

I've stayed with Maria and Mark twice and, besides great food, they get the balance of friendliness and 'space' just right. It's no coincidence that there are no PRIVATE signs plastered around the place, because the atmosphere they aim for - and achieve - is one of mutual respect and trust, which is worth a few bob in itself these...
