Lifestyle: Lodge farm B&B review Hitchin

Lodge farm B&B house - photo credit

Last week the husband and I headed down to Hertfordshire for yet another family funeral.  We figured we'd take the opportunity to stay somewhere really nice as a bit of a treat, so despite the sad circumstances, we actually had a nice time.  I was so struck by the beautiful surroundings, stunning house and lovely owner of the B&B that I wanted to share it with you.

Lovely bed, it was so comfortable!

Lovely smellies.

Cute teacups in our room.

Our bathroom.

The gorgeous breakfast room.

My vegetarian breakfast - vine ripened cherry tomatoes (grilled) on granary toast, with another slice of granary toast with chopped mushrooms on (divine!).

Chris' full English breakfast, which he suitably demolished.

And lastly, this beautiful view (below), our car on the right, fields ahead and surrounded by stables.  This was still when places were quite foggy as you can see from the morning haze in the distance.

Despite it being a sad visit, we had such a lovely time at the lodge.  Our room was lovely, despite an 8-legged visitor which I had Chris quickly dispense of!  We slept really well, which I don't normally do at B&B's or hotels, it helped that the duvet was really soft and the room wasn't sweltering (which is usually is in hotels).

The owner (Maria) was ever so lovely, she made us feel right at home and cooked us up a wonderful breakfast the next day.  The rooms, I think, were a very reasonable price too (£75 for our room for the night), but they do rooms from £55 a night.  It's situated in the middle of Hertfordshire countryside, nestled amongst a series of little lanes and fields.  I loved that there was a stables full of beautiful horses on site too, it was lovely seeing them, I was eager to go and give one of them a pet but we didn't really have time, so this photo was as close as I got :)

If you're ever looking for somewhere to stay near Hitchin/Stevenage/Hertfordshire I'd highly recommend this place, I had no complaints whatsoever, only praise.  If you'd like to visit their site or make a booking via it, you can visit here.
