Period Georgian home which can accommodate 15 guests: roaring fires, kitchen range, large living rooms, third-acre garden, lawn tennis, croquet, swimming pool, piano, cinema room. Easy walk to a huge variety of restaurants, pubs, park, shops; five minute walk to town centre, thence to a beautiful embankment and river walks beyond; also to the bus station, or ten to the railway station with easy access to London. 45 minutes' drive to Cambridge, 20 to Milton Keynes shopping centre and theatre &c.

숙소
Please note that (in normal times!) we will usually be here to welcome and look after you: this is our home and we live here. (Airbnb has no category for this; hence their slightly misleading strapline.)

Built in 1825, our quintessential blue-plaque Georgian English town house once housed the largest observatory in England. With its own swimming pool, croquet-and-tennis lawn and home cinema (with free Netflix) it is large enough for several families to stay in together: our bedrooms are very spacious. We also have a third of an acre garden as if we were miles into the countryside, and yet it is extremely convenient for the town centre (five minutes' walk) and river, for London (37 minutes by train) and Cambridge (45 by car or just over an hour by very convenient and comfortable bus).

Those interested in astronomy will be intrigued to learn that the first inhabitant of the house was Admiral Willaim Smythe, who built the observatory for which the house is named – now in the Science Museum – and after whose son Piazzi Smythe a sea on the moon is named. It is a house full of history and we keep it as true to its Georgian original as is compatible with the comforts of modern living.

호스팅 지역

Bedford, 잉글랜드, 영국

This is a residential area. Therefore please quieten down and come indoors at 11 o'clock pm, and please don't play amplified music outside at any time without pre-arrangement with us.

Bedford is a pleasant town on a river, with all essentials a few minutes' walk from our house: plenty of well-equipped shops, a lovely river with a pleasant embankment for walks, numerous good pubs and restaurants of all ethnicities and lovely English villages and countryside a few minutes' drive away.

Bedford's most famous inhabitant was John Bunyan and there is a free Bunyan museum a few minutes' walk from the house, suitable for children and small enough to exhaust in an hour (you might need to book your visit in advance). There is also a ruined castle; a Marina; a local kiln where you can decorate your own pottery; a choice of different styles of church on a Sunday morning, a mosque within a very short walk and a Hindu temple also within easy walking.

London is a mere 37 minutes by fast train; Cambridge even nearer; and should you be mysteriously tempted, the thriving purpose-built shopping centre of Milton Keynes more accessible still.

You are of course welcome to arrange for a supermarket delivery. If you forget anything, there is an excellent local Sainsbury's at the top of the Crescent, under a minute's walk away, with a superb bakery for your fresh breakfast croissants, &c.

숙박 중 게스트와의 교류

This is our home: we live here! This means that we are on hand to show you around, open the pool for you, show you how to use the cinema, referee the rules of croquet, &c. You will have the use of everything except our private rooms, including: the main kitchen; dining and drawing rooms; cinema room; conservatory. We will not (of course) impose on your stay unless you invite us to join you.

When we are away we can usually arrange for our housekeeper to be on hand to help or answer any questions you have.

(Please note that not all the bedrooms photographed are necessarily available for every stay: if a particular room is important to you, please ask.)

Our Great Dane, Horatio, is extremely popular with guests and usually happy to model in many a group photoshoot at no extra cost. (If you are unfortunate enough to suffer from cynophobia or an allergy, as long as you give reasonable notice we can usually arrange for him to stay elsewhere.) We also have cats, chickens, doves and bees.
