As you look out at lofty pines imagine Henry VIII thundering by… This whole area was part of the hunting estate of nearby Hatfield House and hugely ancient trees overlook the outside stair to your neat apartment above the Ames’ clapper-board garage. Off the small balcony, through the stable door, is your attractive, compact, white-tiled, living space. Open the doors garden-to-tree-end for the full airy view! You’ve a small pitch-ceilinged sitting area with Velux window, modern L-shaped sofa, faux fur throw; radio and magazines to relax with. From the spotless, smartly-fitted kitchen you can practically see into birds’ nests, and watch deer forage below. The gable-end, queen-sized bedroom is cool and calm, decorated in blues and white – a wooden chest under the eaves has fluffy socks so you can go shoe-free on the tiles. The pristine bathroom is a good size with slatted wood ‘mat’, nice towels and robes. Don’t come laden as space is limited. You can walk down the road just outside to the village pub; local take-aways are good. Golf on the doorstep, Knebworth nearby, Cambridge is less than an hour.
