Many travelling to Buckinghamshire choose to do so because it is in the South of England. This location means more hours of sunshine and warmer temperatures than in some other parts of the country.

In the summer months, the average highs are between 25-30 degrees. The coldest months, December through February, bring average highs of between 6 and 10 degrees.While there is less rainfall in the South of England than in the Lake District, this IS still England. That means that travellers to the area should always bring raingear and be aware that there is a possibility it will rain each day during their visit.

Clean and comfortable, fully furnished with everything you might need for your stay. Secure off street parking. Easy access to local towns for shopping, theatre, restaurants and Oxford a short drive away. The owners are really lovely and go out of their way to help. Would highly recommend.

Very clean, comfortable and fully equipped with everything you would need for a family home from home. The doors open into a lovely garden and outside dining area. The barn has easy access to Aylesbury for shopping and theatre as well as the market town of Thame where there are nice cafes and independent shops. Oxford is a 25 minute drive and the station to London about 5 minutes by car. For anyone interested in historic houses there are plenty of National Trust properties to visit nearby, including Waddesdon Manor and Ascott. Lots of nice restaurants within about 8 miles. The owners are lovely and always make us extremely welcome. Would highly recommend.
