I booked Frog Corner for my best friends hen weekend and Sandra (owner) has been nothing but helpful and accommodating throughout the whole process. She truly made my life a lot easier even arranging dinner for us all.
The house and grounds are simply beautiful, the pictures really don't do it justice. All of the 'hens' loved it! We had a big party of 17 during the day and then 10 staying over and there was more than enough room.
The house is finished off brilliantly with gorgeous modern bathrooms and the beds are like sleeping on clouds.
All 17 of us would highly recommend it......don't hesitate, it's perfect!

Frog Corner is a charming conversion of a terrace of three 400 year old cottages into a single five bedroom home. A large and attractive dining room has been added as well as an immense, conservatory style entrance hall. There are four superbly appointed bath/shower rooms. The kitchen and dining areas are fully stocked with high quality utensils and crockery. The large log burning stove in the lounge provides the ideal focus for guests visiting during winter. The original build of the cottage that is now the kitchen, means that the beams are low and care has to be taken if tall.
A test when renting any property is how unforeseen problems are handled. As Sandra was away during our stay, we were given clear instructions from Jayne, who met us at the house, about who to contact if required. When we had a hiccough with the central heating, Bob and Hazel (the housekeepers) from the adjacent house responded immediately. They did everything possible to resolve the issue and it was a great relief to have their support. The children loved the freedom of the extensive garden and the few minutes walk to Whipsnade Zoo was an added bonus. As we visited in December, we were unable to enjoy the attractive and good sized outdoor pool. Frog Corner was an excellent rental property for a family reunion.
A fantastic house and grounds, great fun for the children in our group aged 6 to 10 to explore, play hide and seek, outdoor games and generally have fun. The swimming pool was brilliant. All the facilities were excellent and it was an fantastic place to spend a weekend away with the family celebrating someone's 'special' birthday. Thoroughly recommend.
Frog Corner was a perfect rental to celebrate a hen do with beautiful grounds and a good sized swimming pool! Sandra was an exceptional host and extremely accommodating, especially prior to our stay where she responded to all queries very quickly. She even went out of her way to return an item that was left at the property by post for no extra charge. I would definitely recommend this rental for groups and special occasions in particular - it was a shame we were only there for one night!
We stayed in this marvellous country house in the weekend. The country house has 400 year history. it's very clean, well presented and has many characteristics. The service is excellent, the landlady even provided us ice cream on the first day when we arrived. We will definitely come back and recommend to other people.
