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.

Like many holiday cottages, we are set up to take bookings in multiples of full weeks running from Saturday to Saturday. This site doesn't give us an option to fix those terms. 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.

House rules - max 4 guests (including babies in cots) no pets and no parties.

Always great stay. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Always our first choice when we are visiting the area. 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.
