A one-bedroom annex is available to rent for short breaks and holidays, between Welwyn Garden City and Wheathampstead.

The "White Cottage Annexe with riverside garden hot tub" AirBnB listing is located near the River Lea, just off Waterend Lane in the Ayots.

The annex itself is brimming with character, with wooden beams and historic touches throughout.

A cosy and comfortable living space is packed with homely touches, such as an inviting rug and checked throws placed in the room.

A strong wooden theme continues into the kitchen, where a dark, thick beam compliments the well-stocked surfaces and shelves.

The bedroom is also full of character, with sloping ceilings and a grand bed giving a historic feel to the space.

A patio outside provides a space to relax and enjoy the weather, with plenty of seating available. 

What's more, the annex's hot tub sits on a well-maintained decking area, surrounded by plants and greenery.
