About the Owner

I have lived all of my life in the village of Colmworth and I now own the majority share in Colmworth Golf Club.

I live onsite with my husband Simon, who manages the books and the maintenance of the golf club

My daughter, Tilly, also helps with the cottages but her main role is running the Osteopathy clinic which is also based at the club.

My Dad, David, aged 89 also lives onsite and he still contributes with the running of the club.

As you can see we are very much a family affair.

Lovely little room in a very quiet setting.

We had an enjoyable stay at Colmworth. Digby's Den had everything we needed for a short stay. Lovely setting with lots of birds and a good golf course. Unfortunately the bed is a very small double - I'm pretty sure it is a 4' bed- which impacted on a good nights sleep. My husband was here alone for the first 4 nights and he said it was fine for one person. We had a major problem with the Wifi, we expected it to sometimes drop out given the rural location but we were unable to conect at all. My husband was working in the area so this caused us a problem but I'm sure some people will be happy to be incommunicado!

Digby's Den is set in the tranquil North Bedfordshire Countryside, but is within easy reach of London and Cambridge.

When you stay with us you can simply enjoy the beautiful countryside views and walks, relaxing in the garden with views over the lake and golf course. Our friendly clubhouse boasts a gorgeous little cafe (The Coffee Cup), where you can enjoy some of our homemade cakes, sandwiches and soups. This also couples with a fully licensed bar.

If you enjoy golf, we offer reduced green fees on our 18-hole course and reduced golf buggy hire.

Other facilities available are our floodlit driving range, Golf tuition with our qualified Professionals. We even have a small Pitch and Putt course, perfect for beginners, or even our FootGolf course (Golf but kicking a football!!!) which is great fun for anyone!

This cottage is also perfect for those who enjoy fishing - we have 3 well stocked lakes, one of which is just a few metres from the patio doors of Digby's Den.

We have a number of other interesting activity centres nearby if golf, fishing and foot golf isn't for you!

Bodyflight in Bedford www.bodyflight.co.uk where you can try indoor skydiving, indoor surfing and even climbing.

In Riseley you will find Sporting Targets www.sportingtargets.co.uk - an exceptional Clay Pigeon shooting centre.

Or even closer, in Little Staughton Robin's Reach Archery www.robinsreach.co.uk.

A must if you visit us here is The Plough in Bolnhurst just a stones throw from the cottage - a fantastic countryside restaurant that attracts diners from far and wide: www.bolnhurst.com
