Barn
The Parlour is a beautifully converted barn located on our family farm in the rolling Hertfordshire countryside. With a woodburning stove, exposed beams and sunny terrace, the Parlour is a fantastic place to stay all year round. Whether you like walking, cycling, visiting the many local attractions or historical towns (such as Cambridge, St Albans, Hertford, Duxford, Harry Potter Studio etc) or want a base close to London but away from the hustle and bustle this is the place for you. The Parlour is a stunning 2 bedroom property with two ensuites and an additional cloakroom. Each bedroom has a double bed as well as a double sofa bed in the living room and a single bed can be added to the larger bedroom to sleep up to 7 guests. (Please request the sofa bed and single bed if required). Chil...The Parlour is a beautifully converted barn located on our family farm in the rolling Hertfordshire countryside.

It is set in a courtyard with two other properties - The Creamery and The Dairy, which are also available for short breaks.More
