Beautifully fitted and furnished to provide the perfect backdrop for extended families and friends to relax, the perfect base to explore and make new memories in the Heart of England.

With views over rolling hills it may be hard to leave, but for those who do, a wide range of attractions can be found. At Chiltern Hills, walkers can enjoy scenic paths through countryside while red Kktes soar above. National Trust gardens surround the Renaissance-style chateau of the Rothschilds at Waddesdon Manor -a must see with exquisite interiors and architecture, and Claydon Estate with shops and artist’s workshop. Should retail therapy be desired, Bicester Village shopping outlet will satisfy your needs. Enjoy a trip to Silverstone or a round of golf at one of the surrounding courses. Fun for the children can be found at the Green Dragon Eco Farm or a visit to Buckinghamshire Railway Centre. Further afield are the towns and villages of the Cotswolds, or visit London or Oxford providing the widest array of experiences.

Upon arriving at the farmhouse double  front doors lead in to a wide entrance hall with seating and spaces for coats and shoes, before stepping through to the lounge. An exposed brick inglenook fireplace with wood burner creates the focal point with comfortable sofas on which to relax and plan the following days activities. The SkyTV  and DVD will help with any downtime and ensure any must see programmes are not missed, here you will also find the double doors that lead out to the patio and swimming pool area. A second lounge allows guests to break off from the main group and features SkyTV and DVD to watch from the comfortable sofas and a fine selection of games and books. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything required to cook any celebratory meal and includes an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and a dishwasher, to help with the cleaning after. The kitchen island also provides a less formal place to eat while a large archway opens through to the bright and airy dining room where the more formal dining table allows for meals with views out over the rolling countryside, and a second wood burner to create a cosy atmosphere on even the coolest of nights. Beyond the kitchen is an inner hallway providing access to the fabulous games room in which guests can enjoy a game of snooker during any downtime with seating and cool drinks from the fridge. Also accessed from the rear hallway is a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer, a shower room with shower and WC and the first of the bedrooms with a small 4 ft double bed. Ascending the stairs to the first floor, is the galleried landing with superb far reaching views providing access to the five remaining bedrooms. The first is a super-king-size zip-and-link bedroom (which can be made up as a twin on request), with impressive views and an en-suite bathroom with shower over bath and WC, the second bedroom is also a spacious super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made up as a twin on request), the third is a king-size zip-and-link (which can be made up as a 2’6” twin on request) while the remaining two bedrooms comfortably accommodate twin beds. Completing the accommodation is the bathroom incorporating a shower over bath and WC.

It is likely that much time spent at this beautiful farmhouse will be spent outside with sweeping lawns planted with a wide variety of mature plants, and fruit trees providing plenty of space for children and pets to run off any excess energy. The ultimate space for entertaining would be the heated swimming pool which is open from April to October, surrounded by patio and garden furniture with a pool house accommodating a changing area, creating a magnificent area for guests to enjoy. There is also a BBQ, perfect for al fresco dining. There is off-road parking for eight cars.

This house is situated in a perfect, quiet location, with easy access to main road. The house was comfortable and clean, perfect for a family of 12. The kitchen was well equipt. The log fire and soft furnishings gave a great ambience to the lounge. The snooker room and bar was a nice touch as is the snug room. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortaRead moreble.

This is an ideal house for a family gathering covering all ages from very young to very old. It is very well equipped and comfortable in a peaceful location. Ideal for walking yet near enough to any other facilities that may be needed. Highly recommended.

Set in a peaceful location, this is a lovely spacious house, beautiful gardens with plenty of room for children to play. The heated pool was fantastic and a big hit with the whole family. Our party consisted of 7 adults, eldest my 91 year old Mother and 5 children under 6yrs. We are all in agreement that we would like to return. Highly recommend.

Great place for a family getaway made easier by the friendly & helpful owners. Few issues during stay were dealt with quickly. Swimming pool is excellent, difficult to unwind cover and refit it during high winds but this would be the case of ANY swimming pool so this is not a criticism. Really warm pool and great that it is the same depth throughouRead moret more or less as this is helpful with small children & Youngsters aswell as OAPs who need to be in depth. Snooker room a real treat and Snug great. Hide
