About the property

Escape to the country!!

Escape to the country! Come for a long weekend or stay for longer, pack your bags, leave the stress of the city, relax, unwind and rejuvenate in our lovely Garden House. We are in a quiet village close to the magnificent Woburn abbey.Imagine Christmas Day, a fire roaring up the chimney.... Presents around the Christmas tree.... A walk next door to church... Down to the pub for some traditional Xmas cheers...The Garden House for Xmas dinner...Champagne on ice, Turkey and roasts slow cooking in the Aga the aroma is intoxicating.....

Come for a week or a pre Christmas long weekend. I can decorate the house or leave it to you.

Garden House has wonderful rural views, its light and spacious yet cosy and warm. The house was built in 1888 and originally was three workers cottages. It was renovated and extended to provide a beautiful easy modern living space. Everything in the house is aimed towards comfort and pampering from the roll top baths to rain power showers, comfy settees and chairs a wood burner that opens into a roaring outside there are super comfortable American Adirondack chairs.

The kitchen is the hub of the house, there is a wonderful Aga in the central island, where everyone congregates including rosa the cat.... we have a walk in larder and Smeg fridge. The large kitchen table is set under a glass garden conservatory that allows the outside in, we can eat brunch watching the wildlife, birds and squirrels, deer and rabbits a cut glass candleier refracts the light. Our open plan sitting room has large doors that open on to the terrace. Garden house is in the heart of a traditional English village next to Saint Peters church in rural countryside. Very close to super fast links to London and the rest of the world! Take a 40 minute train ride to enjoy the sights of London. Fly to Paris,Rome, Amsterdam or Madrid from London-Luton airport 30minutes drive... Play golf at Woburn abbey Golf Course... Ski at the snow dome Milton Keynes European largest indoor slope...Discover London theatres or Milton Keynes superb modern theatre is on your doorstep!!


Please send an email request before booking and supply reviews or references.

There are lots of lovely walks from the house over the Woburn Estates or around our garden. Walking to the pub is a must!

A car is necessary. Trains to London and the North from Milton Keynes or Harlington. All London airports are convenient.

Rosa our cat likes to be fed a sachet of kitty cat morning and evening.... She loves to lie next to the Aga but essentially she is a working outdoor cat. Super cute but treat with care....

I can arrange cleaning, takeaway home made meals mid week delivered to your door.

A cottage full of beautiful things with a huge fabulous private garden.

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful. Full of wonderful furniture and amazing art work. It is a real delight to stay in such a lovely place. The beds are very comfy with good duvets, bedding and pillows. The garden is more than twice the size you expect from the view from the back of the house. It is not overlooked and has a large grassy area, as well as beautiful plants and trees.
