Arrived after dark and took a while to find it as there are no street lights - bring a torch! The keys were left safe and had no problem finding the rooms. Breakfasts were lovely, cereal, toast, fruit, hot breakfast to order. We ate breakfast overlooking the garden and fields beyond which is a great way to start the day....

We stayed here last month for 2 nights while attending a wedding in a nearby village. We were warmly welcomed by hosts Jane and Vernon on arrival and shown to our chosen room - the summerhouse. Really well kitted out - very comfy superking bed - fridge, microwave, tea and coffee making facilities, wet room and loo all in a...

We stayed here with some of our family as well as our two week old daughter, for a family wedding. I cannot speak highly enough of the venue and the wonderful owners. They have owned the house for over 50 years and clearly love hosting. Having a two week old and travelling over 2 hours to get there from Bristol...

Nice character building in a lovely area of Welwyn. Bed was comfortable and a decent size. Hosts were very friendly in the morning and breakfast was both plentiful and tasty! Garden was lovely, even in the slight drizzle we saw it in. We didn't get time to enjoy the pool or hot tub but intend to come back so we...

Absolutely wonderful stay here, it was like being with extended family. Nothing is too much for our hosts, who went over and above to accommodate a new born baby (9 days old). Very friendly. I will definitely be going back and can't recommend Christmas Cottage enough. I'm sure that you will enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Just spent a week here for a summer break with my wife and 22-month old son - had a wonderful time. We had visited Christmas Cottage a few years before for a pre-wedding barbecue, and remembering the lovely garden and pool thought it would be just the ticket for a summer break that didn't involve too much travelling with our...

What a little gem of a B&B, olde worlds cottage, out of the way and very quiet. Jane and Vernon the perfect hosts. Hospitality superb. We didn't like the little milk pots, and were given 'real' milk and told to help ourselves from the fridge if we needed any more. Cereal and fruit followed by a fabulous cooked breakfast each...

“I like the exposed beams of the Tiffany room, and also liked Amy. Both are ensuite, unlike the smaller Maria single, which has the benefit of a well-stocked bookshelf. If creaking floorboards put you off, ask for the Summer House instead, where you can make a bit more noise without feeling self-conscious.”
