The property was exactly as described (and illustrated on the website) as it was clean, spacious and well presented. This particular cottage is very peaceful, it has great views over the surrounding countryside and stunning sunsets in the spring and summer months. There are good facilities on site for younger children including tennis courts, soft play area, climbing frames and swings. The Lets Unlimited team are on site and will be as helpful as is required without in any way being intrusive. (PS - If you stay at Town Farm make certain to visit the Kings Head restaurant in Ivinghoe, the Aylesbury Duck has to eaten to be believed !!
