  • "Kub House is a comfortable and private holiday home."

    It is designed and decorated to a high standard and is a relaxing and peaceful space to be in. It is clearly well insulated (definitely no need for thermals!) and very quiet apart from the birdsong. The outside area is tastefully designed to provide separation and privacy from the main house and offers lots of secluded space for sitting out, bbq’s and parking.

  • "If you are looking for a little bolt-hole for a week - this is the place for you."

    If you are looking for an intimate lovenest, for you and your partner - this is the place for you! I was very lucky in the sense that both of these criteria met my needs - somewhere quiet, but comfortable, where I could work uninterrupted, but be inspired by the beautiful surroundings (2 mins walk in any direction and you are in the rolling chilterns); but still have all the mod-cons that I needed to get through - Comfy bed, great shower, good internet connection, kitchen facilities (fridge, oven, kettle, dishwasher and washing machine) - perfect for the two weeks that I needed it for. The firepit outside makes an excellent addition, allowing you to cook, and eat, outside in the glorious English country air - no sounds of cars - just birds, all day long, followed by bats, foxes, deer, and badgers at night. In short - it was idyllic - and our hosts, Karen and Richard, are extremely friendly and helpful - responding to messages quickly, and their aim is to make your stay as easy and stress free as it can be. Oh, and Karen has an amazing list of entertaining/amusing websites that she enjoys talking about - make sure you get some of those from her before you leave! Would I stay again - undoubtedly!

  • "Lovely stay."

    Quiet and peaceful location. Clean and reasonably comfortable. Sofa was a little low for us oldies but the floor cushions placed under the sofa cushions solved that problem. Well equipped but a shelf above the microwave would be useful for groceries that do not require the fridge. Ideal location for walkers with so much beautiful countryside around..

  • "Lovely little place -perfect for a couple."

    The property had everything that we needed and was well maintained and very clean. My only recommendations for improving would be to install a small shelf in the shower, and a bird table outside, so guests can put out food to attract the wide variety of birds in the area.

  • "The photos really do not do the Kub house justice!"

    It was really clean and the interior was modern with a ‘wow’ factor. The location was perfect as well and only a 40 minute train journey to London Euston. We will definitely be booking the Kub house again next time we want to visit London!

  • "Kub House was excellent, The interior decoration and facilities are of a very high standard ensuring you are very comfortable during your stay."

    Outside there was a small sunny garden in which you can relax. Karen our host had left details of local facilities and was available if we had any problems.. Kub House is ideally situated for country walks or those that want to be more adventurous as London is only 45mins by rail from local station. Robert Poole

    So quiet and peaceful. Well equipped with everything you'd need and in a beautiful part of the country. The best welcome guide we've ever seen too! Couldn't recommend more.

  • "We spent a week at Kub House & thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    All the furnishings & bedding are of high quality & the kitchen is super equipped. The weather was good so we were able to use the firepit which was great fun for our grandchildren who live nearby. Wigginton is well worth a visit, St Bartholomew's church is lovely, the village shop is well stocked & a meal at the Greyhound is a must!

  • "An immaculate comfortable property."

    Situated on a quiet private road in woodland it is a peaceful retreat and ideal during the current difficult times. There are numerous thoughtful touches which make it a real home from home. We appreciated the quality and range of cookware and utensils as well as the smart tv with Netflix. The shop in Wiggington is staffed by cheerful, helpful staff and stocks a wide vatiety of items including newspapers. We enjoyed our meal in the friendly local pub which now has a heated marquee in the garden. If this is the location you want to be in, you would be hard pressed to find a better property fir your visit.

The property

Found on a tranquil no-through road, Kub House sits between the attractive towns of Berkhamsted and Tring on the outskirts of Wigginton, deep in the Hertfordshire countryside.

The peaceful greenery around it gives Kub House an atmosphere very distant from the city, yet it’s no more than 10 minutes by cab from the mainline stations of Tring and Berkhamsted, and 40 minutes from London Euston.

Kub House has its own gated off-road parking, and from there it’s a short walk along a private shingle path to the front door, passing the neat, south-facing garden with its wooden furniture and fire pit.

Refurbished by the owners with thoughtfulness and care, the oak-floored, galley-style kitchen has a sleek black finish capped with wooden worktops and all the appliances you’ll need for your self-catered stay.

The open plan feel of the kitchen, dining area and living room creates a connection to the garden featuring native and evergreen trees that attract wildlife, including deer.

The dining area beyond the kitchen is perfectly scaled for one or two, with high stools and a table that allows you to enjoy a framed view of the garden.

It’s the perfect place for a romantic dinner, a casual lunch or a relaxed breakfast. In the living room, opposite the integrated wall-mounted smart TV, is a sofa long enough to allow plenty of indulgent lounging.

There are magazines, books and board games, and a spacious desk beside a window overlooking the garden.

Kub House has broadband, so you’ll stay connected.

Beyond the kitchen and living area an internal hallway leads to a bedroom providing a king-size bed, bedside tables, a dressing table, and chair overhung with a large ornate mirror.

Just outside the bedroom is a separate dressing area with a bespoke mirrored wardrobe and a place to store your luggage.

Opposite the bedroom, across the hallway, is a well-lit, sparkling and generously sized shower room providing a tiled corner shower, a fitted WC and a basin.

Fresh towels are warmed on a large towel radiator and there’s plenty of space for your toiletries and accessories on the deep wooden windowsill.

You’ll find Kub House a very comfortable and relaxing space with the added benefit of plenty to enjoy when you venture out including, if you fancy it, a 10-minute walk to Champneys, Britain’s original health spa.

Set in 170 acres, you can kick-back and book day or evening spas here, the house reached via a tunnel of trees worthy of the finest Downton-esque country pile.

Further afield Berkhamsted and Tring offer a wide selection of restaurants, from Thai to Turkish, Italian to Indian and contemporary to Chinese.

There are plenty of independent shops and cafes too, some with familiar names, some unique to the area.

There’s also a choice of some excellent quality takeaways, should you fancy a snug night in.

Apart from fabulous country walks starting from the moment you step outside; a notable local attraction includes the Art Deco Rex cinema in Berkhamsted.

Reckoned to be one of the finest picture houses in Britain, it screens over 30 movies monthly, from mainstream blockbusters to the best foreign films.

There’s a bar offering snacks, and downstairs you can leisurely consume them while viewing the screen from opulent swivelling velvet armchairs.

Another Berkhamsted highlight is Home and Colonial, an intriguing multi-floor antiques emporium, with a beautiful double frontage and instagrammable café and interior.

Tring isn’t short of memorable activities either, including a somewhat unexpected extension of London’s Natural History Museum.

Built in 1889 to house the incredible and slightly bonkers private collections of Walter Rothschild, a keen zoologist and eccentric, it’s a short walk away from beautiful Tring Park.

If you fancy seeing exotic live animals rather than the stuffed kind, Whipsnade Zoo is a 20-minute drive away.

Further afield are the fascinating Henry Moore studios at Perry Green, their gardens showcasing his sculptures from July to November.

Kub House is ideally placed for exploring the Chiltern Hills on foot, on bikes or by car.

This refreshingly un-crowded Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offers many beautiful trails and walks, while cyclists can indulge the 173 miles of the circular Chilterns Cycleway (part of which runs along the bottom of our road) taking you through Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.

Being less than 40 miles from the centre of London, Kub House is also within easy reach of attractions like the Warner Bros.

London Studio Tour (great for Harry Potter fans) and Wembley Stadium, as well as Kew Gardens, Hampton Court Palace, Twickenham and more practically, Heathrow and Luton Airports.Whether you’re in the mood to explore, eat, drink or simply chill, Kub House offers an idyllic retreat for two, or, just for you.
