Our Hitchin Highlights – by Lodge Farm Bed and Breakfast

Lodge Farm House B&B is just a stone’s throw from the historic market town of Hitchin.

Set in over 20 acres of stunning Hertfordshire countryside our B&B is perfectly placed, only a few miles from Hitchin and Luton.

Our Victorian farmhouse turned bed and breakfast guest house is truly a tranquil retreat. It has been described by many of our visitors as a hidden gem. Sitting in the lovely, peaceful gardens overlooking the rolling hillside views, it’s hard to believe that you’re only three miles from bustling Hitchin!

Top 5 Hitchin Highlights

Our B and B guests often ask us where they can go and what they can do during their stay with us. We always recommend a trip to Hitchin. The town is always buzzing with its wonderful restaurants, CAMRA pubs and bars. Whether you are looking for a casual pizza or an a la carte meal there are plenty of options available to suit all culinary tastes and wallets.

  1. Hitchin Town Centre

Some of the eagled eyed among you will recognise it from the fantastic hit series ‘Doctor Foster’ starring Suranne Jones. Some of the tense, dramatic scenes were filmed in Hitchin town centre!

  1. Hitchin Lavender Farm

When the lavender & sunflowers are in full bloom you can enjoy picking them to take home to enjoy. Its tea room serves lovely food & wonderful cakes in the converted barn next to the fields. You’ll also find a well-presented shop selling some unusual gifts. Free parking is available on site to visitors.


  1. Swimming in Hitchin

  1. Queen Mother Theatre, Hitchin

For entertainment, visit the Queen Mother Theatre… it never disappoints. The team at Lodge Farm House B&B have seen many high-quality shows there. The programme is varied, with something for everyone – and the bar offers bargain priced refreshments. For a full list of everything that is on, go to www.queenmothertheatre.org.uk.



  1. St Mary’s Church, Hitchin

Dating back to the 14th & 15th centuries it is a beautiful piece of architecture; the stained glass and stonework are superb. Occasionally, the church tower is opened to the public and you can climb to the top and overlook the town, market place and river. Don’t forget your camera!

We hope that our Hitchin highlights have given you some ideas about what to do during your stay with us at Lodge Farm House. However, with its warm atmosphere, lovely gardens, wonderful views and beautifully decorated comfortable rooms you may not want to leave the grounds of our wonderfully peaceful guest house!! We look forward to welcoming you soon.
