Ampthill is a lovely Georgian town about 40 miles north of London with lots of pubs and restaurants. We are a friendly Franco-British empty-nester couple and work from home.

The space

This large room is on the middle floor with (normally- unless other guests or family are staying!) exclusive use of the family bathroom. Guests have wifi, as well as microwave and kettle in the room opposite. Breakfast is on a "help- yourself" basis.

Guest access

We have plenty of space on our large drive or private road alongside for cars. The house is 15 mins drive from the M1 or 5 mins from the station. Guests are welcome to use the back garden, weather permitting!

Interaction with guests

One of us will always be at the house. We are a gregarious couple and happy to socialise with guests when we aren't working.

Other things to note

NB we have a labrador who lives on the ground floor. She is friendly once she has checked you out but as she stays mainly in kitchen, guests who aren't dog-lovers can easily avoid her.

Another enjoyable visit with Cheryl. As a host Cheryl is kind and welcoming. The home is clean and comfortable with easy access to main roads.

Response from Cheryl:
Thanks for the great review Laura. I don't know why but I had to submit mine for you about 4 times before it loaded! As a friend once said, with gritted teeth "Computers can sometimes make people very angry".. . Keep smiling and hope to see you again soon.

Cheryl’s home is warm and welcoming and I’m told (it was my husband that stayed) that she and her husband were charming and attentive hosts. They took great care of Eddie, who has now become an AirB&B convert, preferring it to, what he now considers to be, the impersonal atmosphere of hotels. This is the first time that we have used this site and Cheryl was very helpful and patient with my inexperienced bumbling through the system, responding promptly to my numerous questions and guiding me to the finish. I can not recommend staying with her, highly enough.

Response from Cheryl:
Lesley, don't do yourself down! You did very well considering that airbnb's system seems to disadvantage anyone who isn't 100% techno-literate, or over the age of 14. After all, it's thanks to you not being able to find the other room, that led me to understand that I had somehow blocked it - so thanks for that! Hope to meet you in person one day.

Cheryl gave a great welcome to her home and was good to chat to before turning in for the night. The room is large and the bed comfortable (cosy up by the radiator, mmm). She put together a good selection of hot drinks and a filling spread for breakfast. I'd happily stay with Cheryl again.
