Rachel Butler purchased this cottage in 2010
The property has country-side views, easy access to walks and cycle routes and the property and village have all the essentials for a rural escape, including a shop if you want to self-cater or a pub if you prefer not to cook.
The 65' 3D TV with surround sound and Blu-Ray player means you do not need to leave the cottage for your entertainment if the weather deters you from going out!
Our family really enjoyed our stay here in October. The property was very comfortable, provided everything we needed and was located in a beautiful little English village, with a great pub across the road. Rachel and her family were welcoming and friendly. The kids loved visiting the cows and rabbits, running about amongst the apple trees and picking blackberries in the fields. Highly recommend a stay here for anyone looking for a quiet, rural English homestay. We loved it!
This house was the perfect getaway for our family of three. It was nicely equipped with everything we needed including a pub across the road. Everything was clean and well maintained. The distance was far enough out of town to be quiet yet close enough for day trips to Bletchley Park, Blenheim Palace and Harry Potter Studios. There are nice walking paths in the area and we were warmly greeted by everyone.
We used the cottage as a base to visit National Trust and other attractions in the area. It was very well placed for this and we had an enjoyable time. The cottage and its facilities were in excellent condition and we are happy to recommend both the cottage and the area to others.
Loved the cottage - so beautifully fitted out, super cosy and welcoming, everything we needed and a pub that serves fantastic food across the road. Loved our stay and we'll be back!
The cottage was beautiful and was exactly what we wanted. It was beautifully clean and was equipped with everything that we needed for a relaxing break. Couldn't fault it and definitely be booking again.
