    We will certainly be back.

  • "Great stay, beautiful surroundings."

    Easy access to main roads without the noise of busier areas. Host was friendly and welcoming without being intrusive, and she provided everything needed for a pleasant stay. Plenty of room for two to three people without any issue.

  • "This is a luxury studio with everything you require covered."

    Extremely clean and welcoming. A lovely quiet place to go to relax. The only point I would mention is that the bed is extremely low to get out of, it fits perfectly into the decor so I can see why this choice was made, all I will say is if you have any back or knee issues you will have a problem. Having said this what a lovely retreat the accommodation is. Thank you.

  • "An absolute gem for a quiet get away."

    I was very impressed by the welcoming supplies, and basics like tea and coffee being available. A well stocked kitchen for equipment. My only problem was the bed was too low for me getting in and out, it may be mentioned in the description and I forgot, but once in it, it was very comfortable. It snowed whilst I was there, however I was cosy and war. I imagine in warmer weather sitting out looking at the gorgeous garden and wildlife would be wonderful.

  • "Lovely studio and very well equipped."

    Thank you for the milk, flapjacks and chocolate bunny! Bed very comfortable. Only area we felt could be improved on was the shower as the pressure wasn't very strong and the temperature fluctuated. Towel rail was very useful in drying all our toddlers clothes! We loved watching the birds and wildlife on the bird feeder. We would definatley return!

    Did did find the bed a bit low for us, but that could be due to our ages.

  • "Unexpectedly spacious, well planned, and very comfortable - everything one could need and more."

    A lovely studio in a nice location. We used it as a base to visit people and places within about 30 miles so we didn't have the opportunity to look around the area properly and the only sightseeing we had planned were Bekonscot model village and Bletchley Park - both very enjoyable. As was a lunch with old friends at Zaza in Harpenden. Karen was very welcoming and helpful. The only possible downside could be the very low bed which was very comfortable once us oldies got down there!

    Reviewed by John5.0Oct 2022

  • "The best equipped one we have ever stayed in."

    The generosity of the owners was overwhelming. The one downside was the shower room which was down 13 steps and for older folk like ourselves a little difficult so be aware.

  • "The Studio at Little Trees was possibly the best-equipped cottage in which I have stayed."

    Any negative criticism of it would be very marginal. (I don't like eating at a bar stool.) I chose the location because of the ease of access to another family engagement, and it suited that purpose well. Also I wanted a place in which to read, and to do some painting, and it was fine in that respect. On the other hand, I wanted to do some country walking, but the arable farm-land in the area makes for rather dull walks, the country lanes round about this area are quite busy with cars, and you are in constant earshot (once outside the cottage) of the M1 and Luton airport. If it suits your particular purposes then The Studio is brilliant, but you need to be aware of the limitations of its location.

  • "From the moment I arrived I knew I would love my stay here."

    The studio was lovely and warm upon arrival which was so welcoming on a cold winters day. The welcome food pack was a nice touch and the kitchen was the best equipped I have stayed in with ample utensils, crockery, coffee and cooking sundries. The downstairs laundry area was so useful too as I was staying nearly three weeks. It really was a home from home, I didn't want for anything! The studio is in a beautiful setting, so peaceful and I enjoyed watching the pheasant and squirrels who frequently visited in the garden. I was really sad to leave and would love to visit again. Thank you Karen for making me feel welcome to your beautiful home.

There was a good welcome pack on arrival including tea, coffee, bread, butter etc and the studio had everything you need for your stay including washing machine, dishwasher, dvds,board games and much more. Excellent base to visit places of interest or to just sit around and unwind so I would definitely recommend staying here.

    Great bathroom with large shower. Match that with a very friendly warm welcome and a thoughtfully stocked studio and you have a perfect combination. This is one of the very best Sykes properties we have stayed in. Location wise it is perfect for local large village with nice pubs and eateries. Excellent location for visiting central London for a show or whatever. Within easy driving distance of Cambridge and Oxford which are both so well worth a visit. Discovering picture perfect villages in the area is also a must. Last point, why do Sykes list this property as Cambridgeshire ? That is not correct, it is Hertfordshire in fact. Please amend. J & J
