Overview

About the property

Sleeps 4 in stylish, well equipped accommodation with easy access to Oxford

Little Barn is the ground floor apartment of a detached cottage situated within our attractive gardens, near Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. Tucked away in a quiet private road, Little Barn Cottage comprises Little Barn and Little Barn Loft (upstairs apartment - see separate listing), each with separate entrances. Little Barn sleeps up to 4 guests.

This classic self-contained accommodation includes one double and one twin bedroom, kitchen, family bathroom and sitting/dining room. We provide free wi-fi, a television, DVD player, microwave, dishwasher, oven and hob, fridge-freezer, washer/dryer, iron/board, bed linen, towels and hairdryers. The apartment is well stocked with crockery, cutlery, saucepans, toaster, kettle, books, games and DVDs.

There is easy access to our large, attractive garden, with two sets of tables and chairs for al fresco dining. The five-bar gate keeps the space safe for children and you can park up to 2 cars on the driveway. We can store bikes securely if required.

The cottage is well positioned for visiting Oxford, London, Bletchley Park, Blenheim Palace, Waddesdon Manor and many other National Trust properties. There are many delightful Chilterns walks and nearby gardens, including Waterperry, Oxford Botanic Gardens and Stowe Landscape Gardens. Children will enjoy attractions including Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital, Whipsnade Zoo, Roald Dahl Museum, Buckinghamshire Railway Centre, Bekonscot Model Village, Aston Hill mountain biking, Legoland, Harry Potter Studio and children’s farms and museums.

Aylesbury provides easy access to many cities including Oxford and London. There are two local stations (Aylesbury and Haddenham & Thame Parkway) providing regular train services to London and Birmingham and a good bus service to Oxford and Aylesbury.

Stone is a small village with a Co-op shop, a garage, a couple of pubs and a recreation ground just 3 miles from Aylesbury.

Depending on the time of year, our availability and the length of your booking request we may be able to accept a more flexible booking so do please ask us.

Lovely spacious cottage in beautiful setting

Really enjoyed our stay. Owners were lovely, nothing was too much trouble. Weather was amazing so we were able to enjoy the garden on an evening. The cottage itself was lovely, well equipped and clean. Ideal location.

A fabulous property perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

Little Barn was a fantastic base for our Easter holiday. We were more than comfortable as a family of 4 with everything we needed provided. Our girls had great fun playing in the beautifully kept garden and enjoyed the games and books within the property. It was the small things that made a big difference, cooking oils and kitchen cupboard essentials, tea and coffee, washing detergents and Tracy's welcome basket. The location of little barn was central to all our pre-booked activites, most of which were no more than an hours drive away (Whipsnade zoo, Warner Bros Studio, Roald Dahl Museum, Windsor Castle, LEGOLAND). This was the reason we chose Little Barn in the first place and would not hesitate to stay again.

Lovely, comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic spacious barn perfectly suited for all ages. The garden was safe for the children and a peaceful spot for the grown ups too! The barn itself had lots of room and was well kitted out with everything you would need for a hassle free holiday.

Well located for lots of attractions including Harry Potter Studios (under an hour away) with loads of other attractions nearby and nice places to eat in the surrounding villages.

The only down side for some might be is that you can occasionally hear the guests in the upstairs accommodation but we were really lucky that ours were quiet so this did not cause us any issue!

We had a great time and would highly recommend Little Barn as a great base to explore from.
