Nestled in the heart of rural Bedfordshire, The Meadows at Polehanger offers a choice between the Eyebright, Wallflower, Aster and Marigold cabins. A home away from home, the interiors of these wonderful spaces are based around a gorgeous mustard and grey theme, with the kitchens boasting stunning white tiling, honey-yellow cabinets, and sleek, modern surfaces. Multiple cabins can be hired out for an extended family retreat, making this a sociable holiday home suitable for all ages, with Eyebright Cabin hosting an opulent four person wood-fired hot tub for a luxurious, relaxing soak. Marigold also features a hot tub, this time a two person, wood-fired tub, the ideal spot for a couple to unwind.
Three of the cabins, Wallflower, Aster and Eyebright, each sleep up to four adults, or two adults and up to four children across a king-sized bed, bunk beds and a sofa bed. The beds are nice and comfy and feature lovely soft bedsheets that offer a fantastic night's sleep.
Finally, Marigold sleeps up to three adults or two adults and two small children and features a king-sized bed and a sofa bed. However, this cabin does not have the bunk bed that the other cabins offer. What Marigold does include, however, is a fabulous, luxury freestanding bath tub. This is the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing soak after a day exploring the surrounding countryside.
When it comes to dinner time, guests can whip up delicious feasts in the kitchen to be enjoyed on the quaint, round dining table. Each kitchen comes equipped with everything you need including a double induction hob, a fridge with a small icebox, and all the essentials such as washing up liquid, chopping boards, knives, and all the cookware you require.
The blue, plush sofas with charming Bumblebee cushions offer up the perfect relaxation space, with the living areas providing a selection of games and books for you to enjoy during your stay. These cosy living spaces are ideal for sitting with a morning coffee or a nice glass of wine come the evening.
Guests can step outside onto their very own private decking and garden. Here, there's a fire pit BBQ meaning you can sit and stay warm long into the night or grill up some delicious local produce. This outdoor space also boasts yet more stunning views of the idyllic Bedfordshire countryside so you can relax and unwind whilst in awe of your marvellous surroundings.
Back inside, and each cabin also hosts a bathroom with a shower. Fluffy towels, a hairdryer and toilet rolls are also provided for added convenience.
Just 40 minutes from London on the train, Bedfordshire is extremely well-connected, straddling rural and urban. The market town of Shefford is small but charming, with The Loft offering up incredible sandwiches and Rose Buds at Duck Lane an array of afternoon tea classics, from sandwiches to home-baked cakes. Less than 20 minutes by car lies the delightful Hitchin, another market town. Saturated with purple lavender fields, Hitchin Lavender Farm poses the most Instagram-able fields in southern England, and in the summer, the farm transforms into a sea of golden sunshine, hosting sunflower picking. Lavender-based soaps and beauty products are available from the shop, and the farm regularly hosts an outdoor cinema in the summer, screening classics from Breakfast At Tiffany’s to The Top Gun.
Eyebright and Marigold have a wood fired hot tubs. Water changed daily.

My friends and stayed here for a much-needed break from city life. We called for a cab from Arlesey train station and it took us around ten minutes to get to the place (not to be confused with the duplex a little before the property, where we asked to be dropped off the first time; it's around ten more minutes to walk from that house to the farm). During our stay, the other cottages were empty so we actually had the whole place to ourselves, which was very nice and peaceful. When we arrived, we were greeted by the host who was busy cleaning our cottage because their cleaner called in sick (bless her). She let us stay in what I secretly called "the library" because it had several books which you were free to take as long as you brought something back in exchange on your next visit. I actually stayed there sometimes for some solitude. Another lucky thing was that despite the forecast of clouds and rain, it was very sunny the whole time we were there (except one night when it rained, which was fine as we were indoors and didn't even hear the rain pattering against the roof). We had lots of time to follow the trails and do a bit of trekking. There is a tesco about 20 minutes away, and another 20 minutes down the road was a little town with a pub. We went to a pub quiz one night, which was quite amusing as me and my friends all met each other through a pub quiz. (We won second place!) The hot tub was a nice touch and although we used it for only one night, it was well worth the additional charge. The hose for cooling the water down was a bit tricky to operate, though. Sadly, we had to bother the hosts just to figure out how to use it (sorry!). We also had so much fun roasting marshmallows well into the evening. The outdoor table was used for breakfast and it was so relaxing having food while hearing the birds singing, feeling the dewy grass under your toes. All in all, we had a very good experience- I feel almost sad remembering it, like a nostalgic episode.
