Holiday Rental House
Situated next to our Country House in Hertfordshire, (just on the outskirts of London - about 20 miles from Marble Arch), this is a detached, modern, bright short-stay home on two floors. A brilliantly designed open plan kitchen and living area, together with a delightful master bedroom suite are on the ground floor. Upstairs boasts another double bedroom, a shower room and a further smaller bedroom. Enjoy passing our contended free range hens, as you take a walk through our grounds. Minutes from the new Harry Potter Experience at the Warner Bros Film Studios in Leavesden, and close to the TV & Film studios of Elstree, Borehamwood, we are in the heart of the UK's movie land.

About the neighbourhood
Due to its proximity to the main motorways and rail connections you’ll find central London and the whole of the south all within easy access via the nearby mainline train and road networks. Junction 21a of the M25, and Junction 6 of the M1, just a couple of minute's drive away, give you brilliant connections to the rest of the UK motorway network. For those travelling by train, Watford Junction or St. Albans City have a direct rail link into Euston (18 mins) and London, St. Pancras International (32 mins). Alternative local stations include Bricket Wood, Kings Langley, Radlett, & Garston. If you prefer, GreenLine Coach No 757 can whisk you to Central London in less than an hour, from the bottom of our road,. Visit the Harry Potter Experience at Warner Bros Studios which is within wal...
