A light and tastefully decorated five bedroom home set across three floors and over 2400 sq ft of versatile living accommodation.

Campton is a peaceful village, a stone's throw from Shefford - an old market town - with excellent links to Hitchin, Bedford and Cambridge. There are lovely countryside walks (Campton plantation) and pubs in the vicinity and we are just a 5 minute drive to Champney's Henlow. There are also great cycling routes nearby and Arlesey train station is just 3.5 miles away.

Kohde

The downstairs area enjoys bright, open plan living with the added benefit of a separate sitting room and family area and use of a study to work quietly. The kitchen has an AGA cooker which is great to cook on and warms the downstairs in cooler months.

The house was recently featured in a TV advert for AO (TV talent Show) because of its bright, dual aspect views of the countryside and versatile living accommodation YouTube: 'AO Reality TV Show' We now have a famous chicken! :)

We have five generously sized bedrooms featuring: a king sized with en-suite, a King sized spacious loft room, two doubles and bunk beds. There is also a double sofa bed in the family room (which is separate from the main living area) for larger groups.

Outside there is large decked area which has a large rattan sofa and dining set with a four burner outback BBQ; a swinging pod seat for two overlooking fields and a vintage bistro set for afternoon tea.

For children, there is a wooden play house, trampoline, large climbing frame activity centre and a swing ball tennis set.

Work to build a summer house/games room will be taking place but will not impede stay. A hot tub is currently in garden but NOT for guest use at present.

Vieraan pääsy

all (two storage doors will be locked, as will garage).

Vuorovaikutus vieraiden kanssa

If I am not around our neighbours are lovely or we have family who live 10 minutes away. We enjoy the country life because of the space and peace, so please respect our neighbours. A recent booking has forced some rules, can I ask that you are not outside on the decking socialising past a sensible hour, the living room is the perfect entertaining space. (URL HIDDEN) suggests there should be no outside noise past 11pm, so please respect that.

Muita huomioonotettavia seikkoja

I will call to discuss check in arrangements. Term time check-in on Fridays is typically between 4-6pm depending on availability of cleaners and we allow a later check-out on Sunday if available. For other bookings I will confirm check in and check out with you as I like to call all guests a few days before arrival. Please don't hesitate to contact me so we can both have the best experience.
This is our home and we're very proud to be sharing it with you, so please treat it like you would your own. There will be a manual and instructions manual (for AGA) available online to help you access what you need to know to enjoy your stay.

Please don't hesitate to contact me ahead of your stay so that we can make sure you have the best experience. And also, please remember that this is a non-smoking house; our oldest has allergies so we do our best to keep the place very clean, and we prefer you not light candles around the house or use harsh chemicals/fragrances. Although we have fish and chickens, we do not usually allow pets to stay.

Manual – Notices for 39 Greenway
Key is kept in an outdoor safe next to the side gate, the combination i(URL HIDDEN)Please can you return key to this safe when you leave after checking that all doors and windows are shut.
Please can you take shoes off and leave on shelves in hallway. We have underfloor heating in living room and the AGA produces a lot of heat; boots and black shoes scuff the tiled floors easily. The rest of the house is carpeted.
WiFi code – We are with Sky, password (upper case) UEXYBRET
Parking – there are no restrictions, the drive can take 5-6 cars. Or 3-4 with caravan.
Rubbish/Bins – these are collected on a Wednesday morning. Recycling bin is at side of house, glass bottles are not recycled so please can you take with you when you leave, all paper, plastic and cardboard goes in green recycling bin. We sometimes put recycling in green box under sink but if this gets full you will need to put in green bin. There is a separate brown bin for food waste (this goes out each week) where you can put composting.
The chickens will happily eat your left overs, just please don’t feed them chicken, bread or eggs! Other than that they are monsters and will enjoy most cooked scraps and it helps make great eggs, but citrus and processed foods give them dodgy tummies.
Chickens – if you are staying for two nights the chickens will not need any attention. They will have ample food and water. You are welcome collect and eat the eggs during your stay. They are used to roaming garden in the evening for a good scratch but do not feel obliged to let them out. They may be vocal if they see you in the garden but once they realise you won’t let them out they will happily scratch/rest in their pen. If you do let them out, deliberately or accidentally, they will take themselves to bed just before sunset. Please make sure the gate is shut after this time as there are foxes in the area.
Outdoor adult pod swing – this is for max two persons only. If heavy rain is forecast please take cushion and put under wooden cover (next to greenhouse).
The decking area is newly built and can be used for relaxing and dining – please do not use after 11pm.
The barbecue is available for guests to use but there is a knack to light this beast. 1) You must fix the regulator on to the gas tank and twist round. 2) Twist the lever round further to draw gas flow. 3 ) Gas will start flowing automatically, it can’t be stopped unless you twist back. You will need the long matches to light the barbecue (I should have mentioned that first – utility room, top left shelf) because the ignition spark does not work. 4) Close lid and let it warm up for 5 mins 5) when you have finished cooking please disconnect gas from bottle. Wire brush is next to BBQ to clean down. Thanks.
The Playhouse / Play Equipment / Trampoline -
This is for children to use. The trampoline is designed for one person at a time; the climbing frame is suitable for children only. Toys and outdoor games will be left in the playhouse. Please ensure they are returned when not in use.
The Pantry and Garage
These rooms are used for storage and will be locked during your stay.
The Utility Room
Located just off the kitchen you will find a dishwasher and washing machine. We typically use the quick wash setting for dishwasher (36 mins) and setting 11 for the washing machine (if you need to use) for convenience.
Downstairs Toilet
This does have a working electric shower but we do not use this, instead we prefer the shower on the first floor but that doesn’t mean you can’t use this.
Family Room
There is a DVD home cinema system attached to this television which is one of the HDMI input 2. If you switch on TV and then later the DVD it will automatically get signal.
You are welcome to watch any of the DVDs, children’s are in the grey sideboard, adult DVDs are in the white cupboard at far end of family room. If you watch DVD, please put back in box and return to where you got them. There are also board games for young (mostly) and old in the grey sideboard which you are welcome to use.
The nano-tank operates on a timer and contains a colony of red cherry shrimp. They do not need maintenance but if you did really want to feed then I kindly ask that you do no more than half a tablet (top left drawer) every two days.
Living Room – this room has underfloor heating and is by thermostat on wall. Please be careful not to force the handle of the bi-fold doors. 3 o’clock is open (push). To close - turn clockwise to 6 o’clock and lock. We have Sky, simply turn on TV then turn on Sky (wait 10 secs and TV will come on).
The Kitchen
We have cleared the fridge and left space in the freezer for you to use during your stay. You are also welcome to use teabags provided and instant coffee during your stay.
The AGA is turned off during summer unless you have asked for it to be left on. AGA ovens stay on all the time and get very hot; it helps heat the kitchen/downstairs during winter. Please do not adjust the dials,
Two hobs on the top of AGA are for boiling (left) and simmering (right). When not being used please keep protector on the chrome to avoid getting damaged/scratched. The oven on top right is the hottest oven (about 230 C – 200 C) depending on where you put the tray. AGA ovens are very deep and can cook multiple items at once. The Baking oven is bottom right (180 C – 160 C). The left ovens are for simmering (top) and slow cooking and warming oven (bottom). Good for keeping food warm and warming pans and plates. There is a video to demonstrate the AGA by me which you should watch.
The induction hob and small oven are simple to use and suffice during the summer when we eat lots of salads and BBQ. There is also a very good combi microwave/oven/grill you can use.
Study
You are welcome to use this room to work on or read quietly. You are also welcome to read any of the books but please return when you are done. The study is used to store stock for a vintage unit we run in Hitchin and we apologise if this is not neat and uniform but we are happy for people to use the space rather than lock the room.
The fish tank is also on a timer re: lighting. If you wish to feed the fish there will be some food left next to tank, but please don’t overfeed them (no more than once a day) as it’s good for fish to have periods where they don’t eat and the tank can rebalance. Some of the fish have started fighting each other to assert themselves. Please don’t worry yourself.

FIRST FLOOR
All bedding is freshly washed and changed prior to your arrival. We have also just invested in new mattress protectors and some pillows/duvets for your comfort. Bath and hand towels are provided and placed on beds.
The hot water is on and you should have plenty as we have a huge mega-flow water tank in the loft. In the rare eventuality that you somehow use up all the water you can click ‘Hot Water Boost’ on the timer and also switch on immersion heater, but it’s not instant so you will have to wait to use or use the electric shower in downstairs toilet instead.
Bedrooms
1 - The master bedroom with a King size bed and en-suite.
2 – The loft bedroom with King Size bed.
3 – large Double room (small 4ft double bed)
4 – Double room
5 - Bunk beds
6- Family room with double sofa bed

Our neighbours are very nice and aware that we are having visitors staying in the house please respect their privacy and not play load music or use the garden after 11pm.

The area
The village has one local pub but Shefford is a five minute walk (left at drive) and has various pubs and restaurants (incl. an excellent award-winning Indian restaurant – Shefford Tandori). For walks, Campton Plantation is five minute walk (right at drive) and can be found just by staying on the path, turning right at church and following round until you come to roundabout where there is a pedestrian crossing.

Arlesley station is a 5 minute drive with links to Hitchin and London.
The market towns of Bedford and Hitchin are a 15 minute drive away. Cambridge is 45 minutes away.
Things to do not too far from here – Wrest park English heritage, Shuttleworth collection and Swiss gardens, Moggerhanger house and park, Woburn Safari park, Whipsnade zoo and Luton discovery centre.

The house is beautiful and the hosts were very welcoming. A great place to meet up with family or friends.

Had a wonderful family birthday celebration over a couple of days. Lots of space and great areas for the children to be separate from the parents and grandparents. Very relaxed and great help from Richard with questions. Would recommend- it is expensive but worth it for extended family gatherings.

Great stay in a home from home. Very comfortable rooms and bedrooms. We loved the sitting areas; having the flexibility to have a peaceful 'snug' whilst youngsters played games in the lounge was perfect. Thanks for a lovely stay!

A great house for families. We were comfortable with 8 adults and 3 kids. Loads of stuff to keep the kids entertained and a great BBQ and outdoor space for summer days. The house was as seen in the pictures and immaculate. Really recommend it for a long weekend with extended family. Lots of walks and activities nearby makes it a great location for a country getaway.

We are both teachers. We live in a beautiful village with our three lovely girls. We have two chickens, some tropical fish and cherry shrimp. We love to cook on our aga and go for walks in the local countryside.
