We call this "The Little House".

Positioned to the side of our home, it offers comfortable, private accommodation in a lovely area within easy walking distance of Brentwood High Street and both Brentwood and Shenfield stations.

The Little House has just been fully refurbished so everything is fresh and new and for a limited introductory period, will be available at a bargain price so book it now if you like a bargain.

We're new to this so would appreciate all feedback to help us improve!

The space
Complete with breakfast bar, kitchenette, shower room the double bedroom with wardrobe this Little House offers charming, quiet and secure accommodation.

With a dedicated off road block paved parking space next to the accommodation and situated only 4 minutes walk from Brentwood High Street and 13 Minutes walk from Brentwood station, the Little House makes an excellent base for exploring the delights of Essex or London via Liverpool Street Station which by train is only about 45 minutes away.

Although the town centre location is very convenient, the setting does not feel urban since local houses are of generous proportions and are well spaced with big gardens. This, with the open playing fields of Brentwood School on the opposite of the road lend the accommodation a feeling of almost rural tranquility.

The accommodation has been newly refurbished to a very high and thermally efficient standards with double glazed windows helping to provide a comfortable environment for guests at any time of year.

The kitchenette is equipped with microwave, hob, George Foreman grill, sink, fridge, toaster, Nespresso coffee machine and electric kettle with basic cooking utensils and cutlery to hand.

The hot water tank is massive and provides generous supplies of hot water for the thermostatic shower instantly.

The wardrobe has a full height mirror inside the door and good quality hangers to keep your clothes in top condition but should you find that your clothes are creased when you unpack, there is also a table top ironing board and a steam iron to help you look pristine.

For those hot still nights that make sleep difficult, we have provided a quiet but powerful electric fan to keep the air moving and make sleep easier to find.

Should you wish, we also have "his and hers" town bikes which guests are welcome to borrow. These are easy to ride with comfortable saddle and are fitted with removable handlebar mounted shopping baskets. If you think you might want to use these during your stay, please say beforehand so that we have a chance to put them out for your use.

To the side of the Little House, we have a semi-enclosed patio equipped with a table and a couple of chairs exclusively for guest use - ideal for a quiet gin and tonic in the evening sun or perfect for those that fancy dining al fresco!

Where you’ll be

Essex, England, United Kingdom

We are a short walk from Shenfield Common which leads on to Thorndon Park offering lovely walking and an ideal place to fill your lungs with fresh air.

Brentwood High Street is just around the corner with a vast choice of restaurants, pubs and wine bars.

Locally, the best restaurant is probably Felix in Great Warley but there are many fine restaurants within the Brentwood area offering a choice of cuisine to satiate any palate.

Although only 5 minutes drive from junctions 28 or 29 of the M25, head into Essex and you find that Brentwood is surrounded by lovely English countryside with many beautiful parks such as South Weald Park or Hylands Park and a copius supply of public footpaths and convivial pubs.

Chelmsford, Britain's newest city is about 15 miles away and can be reached by train, bus or car and this offes excellent shopping facilities as well as being the home of many fine shows and exhibitions including the annual V festival.

There are regular concerts held in the Brentwood Centre which is about 15 minutes walk away and we always enjoy visiting the Brentwood Theatre which is small, but the local thespians put on excellent productions throughout the year.

Slightly further afield is Southend-on-Sea which is famous for having the world's longest pier. This is worth a visit to walk (or take the train to the end and back) and the esplanade is miles in length with golden sandy beaches, formal cliff gardens and even a leisure park for those with the stomach for such things.

For retail therapy, the choice in London is extraordinary but other venues close by are Lakeside in Thurrock and Bluewater which is just over the Dartford bridge (make sure you pay the toll!) while Stratford station give direct access to Westfield shopping Centre.

If visiting Stratford and Westfield, it's probably worth planning a visit to the Olympic park just next door.
