About Bridget Featherstone

Churchside Guest Apartment is the self contained annex to Churchside House. My family and I have lived at Churchside for the last four years but it has only been in the spring of this year when we decided to rent out the apartment for holidays. We hope that it will provide a good base for happy holidays in the area, it certainly is a fabulous area to live in and we think it is would also be a great area to holiday in.

Bridget Featherstone purchased this apartment in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

John and Julie June 2013 (2 nights): We enjoyed our stay here, has everything you need. Clean and modern. The garden area was really sweet and pretty. Very confortable stay and would recommend to friends and family. Bridget was lovely and welcoming.

Jan and Paul July 2013 (7 nights): We needed somewhere quiet and this was ideal. I did some lovely walks with the dog as advised by Jeremy, We will certainly be back as we were made to feel very welcome. Thank you both.

Like a comfortable & clean home from home

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed a lovely two day break in Bridget's annexe. It's a perfect space for a couple ( although I went with my four-legged friend ) with masses of walks, pubs and of course, Saffron Waldon on your doorstep. Personally, I really appreciated the maps as well as the other extra touches like toiletries, a fruit bowl and tea & coffee.

I would definitely recommend this holiday home if you're looking for somewhere very clean, comfortable yet self contained.
