Home Meadow is a lovely contemporary barn conversion in a peaceful rural Bedfordshire setting. The single storey property, which sleeps up to four guests in two twin rooms, is in the charming Bedfordshire village of Stanbridge, a short walk from the excellent Five Bells Pub and other local amenities.
Standbridge is a small and friendly village complete with school, village hall, a great pub which has a fantastic beer garden for summer and an open fire for cosy winter dining, and a lovely village green. It is only three miles from the vibrant market town of Leighton Buzzard where you can find all necessary amenities should you choose not to order your shopping online for delivery from either Tesco or Waitrose. The train from Leighton Buzzard’s Linslade station goes directly to London Euston in as little as thirty six minutes, allowing your holiday in the country to include some big city thrills should you choose it to.
Bedfordshire is a captivating area. Not only does it have plenty of shopping and entertainment in places like Milton Keynes, Berkhampstead and Bedford, but its history is fascinating. Spend a day exploring Bletchley Park, or learn more about Britain’s railway history at Stonehenge Works Station or Leighton Buzzard Railway. The Higgins Museum in Bedford has a fantastic variety of exhibits, and there is a wealth of other attractions including ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, the Stockwood Discovery Centre, Stotfold Watermill and Wrest Park. Home Meadow is also within an easy drive of the Harry Potter Warner Bros Studio Tour, Woburn Abbey and Woburn Safari Park.
Visitors who love spending time outdoors will find a wealth of enjoyment at places like Rushmere Country Park, Dunstable Downs, the Harrold-Odell Country Park, Priory Country Park, and Bedford Park. Bedfordshire is a beautiful part of England, and Home Meadow allows you to stay peacefully in the heart of it all.
