Lovely view of the river from our room, all staff were very accommodating. We had the pool and jacuzzi to ourselves as it is open until 10pm (we went in about 8pm). I will definitely be visiting again!
Wyboston is a chilled out place with good space in the grounds and the brassereie. A couple of penny pinching niggles spoilt our experience. No laundry facilities at the weekend was extremely inconvenient and unhelpful; and for weekend, read Friday as well here. Also, I don't expect to be charged for additional in room coffee pods; I only asked for another couple and was told they were 3 for a £1. Come on!!
We loved the friendly atmosphere and space of the Old Piggery guest house in the rural farming surrounds. While sharing with a large family group at the time of our visit, we felt we had plenty of space to ourselves. We were visiting from Australia for the World Cup Rugby and were made feel very welcome as our host Rachael was a fellow Australian. She even bought another television into the lounge room for us to watch games in comfort.
As the farm stay is a bit of a drive from villages/pubs/restaurants it was great to have use of a fridge and cooking facilities (bbq, microwave, cutlery and crockery).
Bedford makes the most of its location astride the River Great Ouse. The green Embankment is a focal point, with the Mill Meadows bandstand and the boating lake taking centre stage. Visitors can soak up the views from a kayak during the warmer months or dine at one of the riverside restaurants. Castle Mound, the remnants of Bedford's medieval castle, is located near the town's modern high street.
