Perfect, couldn’t have been happier

Modern, cosy, clean and tidy, really nice and helpful hosts

“Harpenden is a modern, cosy, clean and tidy serviced apartment!! Inside the apartment, we found everything we need, cookware, comfortable bedding, clean and shining bathroom. Outside the apartment, we could reach most of the town’s facilities within 4 minutes walk, from bank to groceries, nice restaurant and pub, park, bus and railway station. In short, wonderful location. The hosts are really nice and helpful, especially thanks to John, he provided a very detailed answer to our question. Thank you Sarah, thank you John! My daughter and I really enjoyed the one month long stay here!”

Didn’t want to leave!
“Sarah and John’s flat is charming and amazingly located. Steps from a variety of shops, cafes, bakeries, pubs, and restaurants as well as the train station (easy to St Albans or London), it is truly a marvellous place. Harpenden is also a lovely town. Anyone wanting to visit London should consider staying here instead as it is a wonderful retreat each day. I stayed here with my two daughters and felt immediately at home. Sarah and John were extremely helpful and provided any information we needed immediately. We truly enjoyed our stay and didn’t want to leave!”
