With the Covid-19 vaccination underway in full swing, the chance of a quick trip far from the maddening crowd of the English cities seems to be on the cards. This summer bid adieu to the endless Zoom calls and boring work-from-home routine and embark on a trip to the English countryside.
It is summertime. The sun is at its glorious best and the warm breeze outside calls for a round of outdoor barbeque. This is the perfect time to head off to the countryside and find out what the likes of Shelley and Keats waxed eloquent about.
If you are looking for pocket-friendly accommodation in the English countryside look no further than Alexandra B&B. This offers you all the facilities of a perfectly decent four-star hotel sans the hefty price tag. Situated at the heart of Hemel Hempstead, Alexandra guest house offers 30 warm guest rooms, which are inviting and deliciously cosy. Here’s how the owners can make your stay a memorable one:
Perfect Location in the English Countryside
Situated only 100 yards from the historic Old Town High Street, Alexandra guesthouse offers the perfect opportunity to explore the English countryside. Alternatively, you can mix business with pleasure as it is just a five-minute walk from the city centre. The place offers many pleasant walks along the Grand Union Canal and the lovely Gadebridge Park. If you are visiting on a weekend, then do not forget to check out the farmer’s market, where you can pick up fresh meat and produce. There are also plenty of English countryside manor houses in the nearby areas that provide the perfect opportunity for an afternoon trip down the lanes of history.
A Warm, Welcoming Atmosphere
What separates a hotel from a guesthouse is the personal touch that the latter offers. The cosy rooms done up entirely in red and white are warm and inviting. A sumptuous full English breakfast keeps you satiated the entire day, while the owners, who have years of experience, make sure that your stay is comfortable. Their 20 years of experience in welcoming guests speak volume about their track record.
Cosy Rooms and Modern Amenities
Do not let the quaint facade of the bed and breakfast fool you. Beyond the charming, bucolic exterior, the rooms are plush and modern with all the facilities that are needed for a comfortable stay. The rooms come with a flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi facility, hairdryer, coffee maker and microwave. You can choose from a variety of options when it comes to rooms. From standard single rooms to en-suite double or twin rooms — there’s something for everyone in this guesthouse.
Sumptuous English Breakfast
No bed-and-breakfast stay is complete without a hearty English breakfast. Every morning, you are invited to dig into a hearty breakfast consisting of warm toast, piping hot sausages, baked beans and sunny side up eggs. There is also a selection of jams, preserves, tea and coffee that is served with breakfast. The breakfast is included in the room charge and makes for quite an affordable option.
All in all, Alexandra bed and breakfast is a great option for summer accommodation away from the home. Whether it is a business or a pleasure trip, this guesthouse makes sure how to make each day count and how to make your stay a memorable one.
