Visit Little Gaddesden and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:

Little Gaddesden, Hertfordshire. This is an ancient village verging on superb scenery of magnificent beechwoods, commons covered with bracken, massive oaks and wild cherry trees, all part of the National Trust and a sanctuary for wildlife.

The house of John of Gaddesden is a large timber-framed 15th-century building with an overhanging upper floor and a timber roof, and was named after the famous royal physician. The manor house, a century older, is of stone, with stepped gables to its two turrets and mullioned and transomed windows. It has interesting Elizabethan wall paintings and a collection of early keyboard instruments. Its beautiful gardens which, together with the house, have unusual ornamental yew hedges.

Ashridge House was built in 1276 and stands in a vast park on the ridge of the Chilterns. It was originally erected as a College of Bonshommes in Norman days and is now the Bonar Law College. During Mary's reign, Princess Elizabeth stayed here. The house of Totternhoe stone was restored by James Wyatt in 1808, but it still retains its former beauty. Its chapel has a twice stepped back tower and a tall slender spire. The main building has a three-arched loggia, tall entrance-hall windows and a staircase tower. In the grounds, facing the rose garden, is the barn which has much of the original monastic work.

The Church of SS. Peter and Paul is outside the village. The tower is of flint with diagonal buttresses and the remainder cement-rendered. The 15th-century screen is much renewed and some of the benches have poppyheads. Its main interest is its monuments. The kneeling figure of Elizabeth Dutton was removed from St Martin's-in-the Fields, London. There is a large Classical monument to Elizabeth, Viscountess Brackley, with an epitaph in script; one to Elizabeth, Countess of Bridgewater; and one to Francis Henry, 8th Earl of Bridgewater, with an inscription saying he bequeathed £8,000 to literary men who wrote religious essays.
