I'd thoroughly recommend The Cookhouse. The rooms are good, the breakfasts are great and the owners are great. I've stayed there now for a month and am planning another month as well. Maria and Mark run a lovely establishment.

The Cookhouse is simply brilliant - lovely owners, friendly, clean and efficient. Why would anyone stay in a hotel in Welwyn when you can stay here for the night. I've heard that the breakfasts are legendary. Highly recommended. Ample parking and surprisingly rural given the location.

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

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.

“Although we didnt stay in the secret garden room, I did see it and it looked lovely. It is located by the downstairs loo so no-one to share with. It is right by the front door though so if guests are coming in later you could be disturbed.”
