Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday barn in Hertfordshire - Ground floor barn conversion

Two bedroom holiday cottage with wet room, close to Chilterns

Town Farm is a working farm nestled at the foot of the Chiltern Hills and has been run by the Leach family since the early 1930s. About 1000 sheep are farmed on the Beacon Hill and surrounding high ground, while the lower fields are used for crop cultivation. The 'pick your own' opens in June and guests can take a picnic and stock up on fruit and vegetables. The farm enjoys fantastic views of the surrounding countryside including the local landmark - Ivinghoe Beacon, which marks the start of the famous Ridgeway Walk.

About Angie Leach

I originally come from Cape Town, South Africa, and my home is now on the farm in Ivinghoe. We now have 17 cottages on site, which we started converting from barns in 1995, and I also now look after the bookings for other properties in the immediate area. Many of our guests have enjoyed staying with us from all parts of the world and appreciate the beautiful countryside around us and there is always plenty to do.

Angie Leach purchased this barn in 1949

Why Angie Leach chose Hertfordshire

We love the area because you can be in the middle of the countryside one minute and hopping on the train for a 50 minute ride to London the next.

We are also close to the Grand Union Canal which stretches from London to Birmingham and which offers leisurely walks and boat hire. We are also only around an hour from Stratford on Avon, a little further to Oxford and Cambridge, and is a good basis for sightseeing.

Viewers of the "Midsomer Murders" series will also find a wealth of film locations to visit, from red brick Chiltern villages, to medieval churches.

Whether it's shopping or sightseeing, we have it all on our door step. Bicester Outlet Village is only 40 minutes away, or you may prefer to head to Milton Keynes, with its undercover mall with all the high street shops and more!

You can do everything from skiing on indoor slopes of snow, to playing golf, crazy golf, skate boarding indoors, sailing, fishing and more, all within an hour of us.

What makes this barn unique

All our properties are comfortably furnished and offer all the convenience of your own home, all with fully equipped kitchens, some with dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. Linen and towels are also provided, together with an information pack in the property, with a list of local activities and things to do.
