The Wagon House is one of three cottages at Lordship's Barns, located in 600 acres of unspoilt rolling Hertfordshire countryside. A tranquil bolthole just an hour away from London, near the town of Ware.

The barns were recently renovated and boast hand-crafted kitchens with German appliances; Nespresso machines; underfloor heating; and wood burning stoves.

Explore the countryside, including ponds, woods and a vineyard. Or travel further afield to Cambridge or into London in under an hour.

The space
Few would ever believe that London could be less than an hour away from The Wagon House, surrounded by rolling Hertfordshire countryside. One of three barn conversions, we are set in 600 acres of countryside, with cows grazing in green pastures, swathes of vivid yellow rapeseed, fields of swaying crops and even a working English vineyard.

The beds can either be singles or super kings so please be sure to let us know your preference.

Guest access
The Wagon House is one of a number of properties around the traditional farmyard. It has a private garden area but please feel free to roam the farm whilst respecting the privacy of our neighbours.

Other things to note
Please note that this is a very rural location with little/no mobile phone reception.


Please note that due to building work the Wagon House is only available for Friday to Monday weekend bookings until early summer 2020. There maybe some general building noise on the Monday morning of your departure.

Location

Dane End, England, United Kingdom

Lordship’s Barns are the perfect country retreat from the Capital, being as little as an hour’s drive and even less by the fast intercity trains from King’s Cross to Stevenage, 9 miles away. The village of Dane End is walking distance, less than a mile away, where there is a village shop and children’s playground.

The nearby village of Watton-at-Stone (5 miles) has a gem of a country coaching inn, The Bull, which dates back to the 15th century and serves a delicious mix of gastro British classics and tapas-style deli dishes. Also 5 miles away, Pearce’s Farm Shop sells a tantalizing array of goodies including locally sourced meats and fresh fish delivered daily, fruit and veg, pies and pastries, cheeses, chutneys and deli delectables. There’s also an excellent cafe as well as PYO strawberries and raspberries when they’re in season.

The historic market town of Hertford is 10 minutes drive (7-8 miles), with all the shops, amenities, pubs and restaurants families could need, including a TESCO, Sainsburys and Ocado that will deliver to Lordship's Barn.

The beautiful university city of Cambridge is 30 minutes drive, with its ornate colleges and chapels, excellent museums and galleries, punts gliding down the river, a historic market place and quaint passageways crammed with interesting shops, cafes and bistros.

Such lovely countryside, so close to the Capital, means there are numerous fabulous country estates to visit, with magnificently landscaped gardens and period interiors. Audley End is especially recommended for families with horses to meet in the Victorian stable yard and a play area that has springy wooden horses, a ‘play-mansion’ and adjacent cafe, plus a miniature railway around the grounds. Knebworth House is also great for kids thanks to a fab Dino Trail, with 70 life sized dinosaurs to see as well as an adventure playground with a bouncy castle, giant slide and splash water features. Hatfield House also a play area and Farm Park where children can feed the animals, play in sand pits and bounce around on tractor tyres. When the weather isn’t great, other options to keep children entertained include Woody’s Play Barn in Ware and a Hollywood Bowl and Cineworld in Stevenage.
