A boutique hotel in the Hertfordshire village of Little Wymondley, with prosecco and house-spend discount
Having recently re-opened following a full refurbishment, this hip sleep in the picturesque Hertfordshire village of Little Wymondley is a cool pick. Not only will you have both the medieval market town of Hitchin and the ancient Roman settlement of Stevenage on your doorstep, but you’ll be an hour’s drive from central London - or just 30 minutes if you take the train.
But location aside, it’s the on-trend guest rooms that give the hotel its modish edge. There’s boutique-chic decor, floor-to-ceiling windows and super-comfortable beds swathed in designer bed linen. Days can be spent visiting the gorgeous gardens at nearby Knebworth House. Equally worthy of your attention is the sleek Brasserie SG4 with its show kitchens and booth-style seating, and the too-cool bar with its top-notch gin and champagne menus.
