The loft style apartment is situated in a mews which is accessed through an archway at the back of The Green in Old Knebworth Village. `backing directly onto fields with fabulous views across open countryside and the woods in the distance from it's upstairs lounge diner, terrace and bedroom.
The apartment is decorated to a high standard and is perfect for couples looking for a peaceful country escape, close to London:
From the entrance lobby you can access the bedroom which has a queen size memory foam bed, deep pile luxury carpets, and double doors out to the garden and field at the rear.
Upstairs there is a bathroom with a rainfall power shower and from the landing there are double doors to an open plan lounge dining area.
There are high ceilings with ceiling fan, and exposed beams. Oak wood flooring throughout, an extremely comfortable 'wurlitzer' style Italian leather love seat, a sofa, foot stalls and a 50" flat screen satellite TV - all designed for ultimate comfort.

Things to do in the close vicinity:
If you can drag yourself away from sitting on the Terrace admiring the view, you can walk out of the back garden across the field and through the woods to The Robin Hood and Little John Pub. Here you will find good food and ales as a reward for managing to drag yourself away from the apartment. If this feels like too much effort there is also a pub next to The Green, 4 minutes walk from the front door called 'The Lytton Arms' - named after the family who lived in Knebworth House since 1490. It has live music on a Friday night, food, a range of ales and the occasional beer festival.
There are also a number of other local village pubs to try and country walks in the area - details of which are at the apartment.
