Location description from owner

The England region

Hertfordshire was originally the area assigned to a fortress constructed at Hertford under the rule of Edward the Elder in 913. The name Hertford is derived from the Anglo-Saxon heort ford, meaning deer crossing (of a watercourse).The name Hertfordshire first appears in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle in 1011. Deer feature prominently in many county emblems.

A Brief History of Hertfordshire
The area has a history dating back to the Middle Stone Age. It was first farmed during the Neolithic period and permanent habitation appeared at the beginning of the Bronze Age. This was followed by tribes settling in the area during the Iron Age.
Following the Roman conquest of Britain in AD 43, Hertfordshire adapted quickly to the Roman way of life. One of the new towns, Verulamium (now known as St. Albans), became the third largest town in Roman Britain. After the Romans left Britain, the Anglo-Saxons occupied the area, creating their own towns, including the county town of Hertford.

The Norman conquest in 1066 reached its climax at Berkhamsted where William the Conqueror accepted the final Saxon surrender. After the Norman conquest, Hertfordshire was used for some of the new Norman castles at Bishop's Stortford and at the royal residence of Berkhamsted.

St Pauls Walden

Although now best known for it's weekly market Hitchin's history stretches far back in time.
The earliest part of Hitchin's history begin with King Offa of Mercia, who founded a religious house in AD792 on land occupied by the Hicce tribe. This was the beginning of Hitchin's parish church, second only in size to St Albans Abbey in the county.

In the Domesday Book of 1086 Hitchin is recorded as a Royal Manor and by medieval times it was a thriving town on the banks of the River Hiz. Today it still gives an air of peace and prosperity.

“Just what we wanted”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2016

We rented this property to celebrate my 40th, we had many guests, with about half camping on the grounds. The house is large and very spacious giving us loads of room. Although the house wasn't immaculate, it suited our needs perfectly! It had everything we needed and is set in beautiful grounds. When the weather suited we had some amazing outdoor time which the house really facilitates. Cirrus was incredibly helpful throughout, and was always available by phone when there was a question or problem.

“the place was lovely and we had a great time!:)”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2013

Me and my friends really enjoyed the weekend in Church Lodge cottage. We would definitely like to come and spend the perfect time making BBQ, playing volleyball, having few drinks or listen to music and dance again. The place was huge and there was a lovely nature around us. We had privacy all 3 days and we could enjoy the relaxing time in this quiet and peaceful area. The cottage was situated in the nice village so we also went for a walk to see the pretty houses and the big farm yards.
