  • A wonderful spacious property tucked away in a quiet rural setting, perfect for family celebrations
  • Relax in the heated private swimming pool while gazing over rolling countryside
  • A perfect base for keen walkers to explore the beautiful Cotswolds or Chiltern Hills
Property code: 62824

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 nearby. Nestled in the Chiltern Hills, walkers can enjoy scenic paths through the countryside while red kites 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 artists' 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 picturesque towns and villages of the Cotswolds, or pay a visit to London or Oxford for the widest array of experiences.

On arrival 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 Smart TV  and DVD will help with any downtime and ensure any favourite 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. 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  creates a cosy atmosphere. Beyond the kitchen is an inner hallway providing access to the fabulous games room in which guests can enjoy a game of snooker  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 and 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 early 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.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This was the perfect place for a perfect weekend. The welcome hamper of wine and local products was a delightful touch. We instantly felt this to be a place of peace and calm, even with a party of 11 that included our 5 grandchildren. They - and we - enjoyied the pool which is a good size and is warm. We hope to return.

A beautiful, well equipped property. Everything a visitor would need was there. Liz and her team were so helpful and thoughtful. Having a swimming pool and snooker room was the icing on the cake. When we holiday down that way again, this would be the first property I check to see if available.

Excellent property. We aged from 5 to 71 and all had a great time. The pool is fun for children yet big enough for a proper swim. We loved the snooker room as well. The house is very spacious which makes for a relaxing stay. It is well equipped with many thoughtful touches. There seems to be plenty to do in the area but in the main we just enjoyed Read morethe house. It's easy to get into London for the day from Aylesbury Vale Parkway. Highly recommended. Hide
