Plum Tree Cottage is aptly named, for the beautiful little archway of plum trees that each year, give us a wonderful array of fresh plums for eating, stewing, 'strudelling' and even turning into delicious liqueur! We have designed both Plum Tree, and Kate's cottage's garden around our fruit trees! Sitting under these are a myriad of herbs and vegetables, making it a busy but 'fruitful' experience stepping out from the cottages. Whether you choose to enjoy your evening drinks amongst it, or BBQ on the back terrace overlooking it, or even try your hand at digging up some of the produce … we think you will enjoy the outside spaces as much as the inside of Plum Tree Cottage. There is an aga for cooking and warming yourself by inside. (happy to give a quick lesson for those who havent cooked on one before!) and a wood stove burner in the front room! Once you step outside the cottage into the village - there is a 'myriad of goodness' in our high street - from Chocolate shops, Delis, cafes, good pubs, and many gift shops. We have weekly markets in our town hall which sell the freshest of fruit and veg! SO ... many reasons to come and share some time at Plum Tree Cottage!

I am an Aussie with a heart that belongs to England! I love restoring homes and Kate's Cottage & Plum Tree Cottage are our latest projects of love! I love giving homes (and people!) a second chance - and so in restoring this cottage it has been all about being true to the character of the original home, whilst bringing it a touch of 'the now'! Hoping 'Kate' would have been pleased with our efforts! I also am PASSIONATE about 'showing off' this area! It truly is beautiful - so much so - we moved in to the village too! SO ... look forward to pointing people in the direction of all the hidden and not so hidden gems of the beautiful Chilterns and beyond!

Lovely house in a peaceful location
We had a lovely peaceful stay in this beautifully decorated house. It had everything we needed to be able to cater for ourselves, was close to the centre of Watlington and was very comfortable. Our children loved the attic bedroom that had it's own little living room. The garden was beautiful and tranquil and set up to sit outside; a great place to enjoy a peaceful early breakfast outdoors, watching the Kites wheel overhead.
So so pleased the cottage was all you needed. We do love that you and your children were able use all the wonderful different aspects of this cottage. Also loved it that you were able to enjoy meeting up with your friends for Australia there too. All the best. Kath.
