Property description

Gostelow House, circa 1540, is a Grade II listed building surrounded by ¾ acre of secure gardens. There is an outdoor pool, bar, patio area and barbecues for your use. This family house is of half timbered Tudor design, and whilst it retains its character with inglenook fireplaces and low ceilings and beams it has all the modern touches you would expect.

The house is situated in the small village of Chalton which has a farm selling fresh free range eggs. There is a good dining pub a few steps from the house. The larger village of Toddington is 2 miles away and has a historic church, a library, a number of village shops, various takeaways and four pubs. Leagrave, a suburb of Luton is 3 miles away with fast access to London (45 min) and Bedford (20 min). Milton Keynes 15 miles to the north, offers a wealth of shopping and entertainment. Oxford and Cambridge are an hour's drive away.
