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.
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.
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.
No smoking household and no loud music late at night. Due to our dog, we can't accept other pets. As the bedrooms are on the middle floor and we have light coloured carpet on the stairs, we ask guests to leave outdoor shoes in the hall.
Retired headteacher and director of translation company; have a French husband, 2 daughters and a stepson, 2 grandchildren, 3 sisters, one brother and a dog. Had some sea monkeys but they aren't doing too well at the moment..
