“Highfield Farm is a gem of a place to stay!”
Reviewed May 5, 2007

We rented two self catering cottages at Highfield Farm for the month of August 2006. Compared to hotel prices the GBP500 per week was extremely reasonable (there were six of us in each cottage) and well worth every penny.
The Codd family couldn't have been more welcoming and nothing was too much bother. We booked late and only managed to get the 2 bedroom cottages but as soon as we mentioned we were families of six they organised an extra bed in each cottage.
The cottages were beautiful. Both furnished to a high standard, they were well equipped and spotlessly clean. The views from the patio were superb and even though the weather was hot the cottages always seemed very cool. The motorway is quite close by but the noise was minimal and hardly noticable.
We found Highfield Farm to be a perfect base for all that Bedforshire and Hertfordshire has to offer. Sandy itself has some shops and Milton Keynes is close by for the serious shopper. Milton Keynes also has a Ski Center, numerous cinema's and theatre's.
The trains to London run every 20 minutes and it is only a 35 minute journey into central London.
At the end of the month we wanted to keep one of the cottages for an extra week and the Codd family organised that for us even though it meant them reorganising other bookings they had.
We cannot fault Highfield Farm in any way and wouldn't hesitate in recomending this accommodation to anyone.

My family of 4 (two children 2 and 4 yo) stayed at this B&B recently. The price was 90 pounds for a room with a queen bed and a single bed. Let me begin with the positive points of our stay. The place really is clean, modern, simple and tasteful. Our complaints arise from the character of the owner and the location of the establishment.
First off, we never received a confirmation by mail. There are no details on their web site about when to arrive or meal times...etc. We arrived to drop off our suitcases and ask for meal suggestions and were greeted with a huffing, puffing, " Are you aware that you're not supposed to arrive until 4:30?". Well, no we wouldn't be. We just want to drop off our things and ask about the food in the area. "Well this is MY family time. From 10 to 4:30 that is what we do."
So, that was rude. The hostess did show us to our room and present us with a sheet of paper with a list of local pubs. She asked when we wanted breakfast the following morning and we suggested 9am. She countered with, "How about 8:50 because we go to church and have to get ready". Personally, we were fine with that, but are all people on holiday ready to be up bright and early on a Sunday?
Overall, we felt unwelcomed, which isn't what you want at a B&B, is it? We could have stayed at a hotel if we wanted a tidy room, right off the motorway.
OH YES! The motorway! It is RIGHT OFF (You can hear the constant WHOSH). the A1 south and I wouldn't be suprised to hear of a serious accident occuring here as there is no signposting until you've passed it and you must go from 60mph to 15 in about 100 metres to make the corner into the drive.
PS: Very little FARM envirnment! There were a few birds, but no other animals in sight. That was disappointing for the little ones.

Very nice B&B farm. Very friendly people, comfortable rooms, large sitting room, good English breakfast. They feed the birds during breakfast, so that guests have something to look at when they look through the window during breakfast. But without the birds, the view was fine too. Also good Self Catering possibilities. Very centrally situated at the A1 about half an hour from North London. Also close to Cambridge.
