Elizabeth cottage is ideally suited to a couple or single person however a travel cot can fit easily in the main bedroom and there is a sofa bed in the lounge to accommodate two additional guests. Although it can accommodate it the cottage would be 'snug' with 4 adults! There is no allocated parking for the cottage however there is plenty of on road parking directly outside. There is a permit only restriction at lunchtime on weekdays between 11am and 1pm but as Queens Road is the last road in the permit zone there are plenty of non permit roads just around the corner if youplan to have your car there in the moddle of the day. There are no restrictions at weekends. There are some amazing walks right from the front door as we are situated on Harpenden common. There are some great cycle routes and bikes can be stored safely in the back garden of the cottage during your stay. The cottage is a short stroll from Southdown shops which has a bakers, butchers, supermarket, convenience store, cafes and takeaways among other small useful shops. There are 2 great pubs within walking distance, The Skew Bridge and The Engineer. Whipsnade Zoo, Hatfield House, Ashridge, Knebworth House, Luton Hoo and Stanborough Lakes are among some of the many attractions within an easy drive of Harpenden. We are close to the historic town of St Albans which is easily drive able or you can cycle or take the bus or train. Central London is a 25 minute train journey away, enjoy all London has to offer with its shopping, sites, theatre, nightlife and then come back to the peace and tranquility of the Hertfordshire countryside!
