Beautiful setting up a private drive. Claire and Gary made us very welcome and gave us a choice of rooms taking into account that I am of above average height. We settled on the Blue Room as planned which was lovely. Tea and coffee were offered with home-made cupcakes which we enjoyed in the garden. Local knowledge was sought for the best way to walk into Harpenden and was forthcoming with a local map. The suggestion to stop for a pint at the Carpenters Arms was followed up. When we returned, we enjoyed a blissful night's sleep in the wonderful bedlinen. Breakfast followed with plenty of chat and discussion of Gary's exploits on the cricket pitch the previous evening. We left with suggestions and directions to our next destination and a discussion of their beautiful garden.
All in all, a very pleasant stay.
