This cottage was home to one family from 1891 to 2015. We have restored their home as sympathetically as possible to reflect the simple farm life they lived and loved. We haven't compromised modern living. There are 2 upstairs bedrooms - one king and one double both with storage and original features. Lounge with sofa-bed. The bathroom (which is upstairs) has a bath with a power shower with large head. The kitchen has an induction hob dishwasher and larder. There is no TV or Wi-Fi but there is EE 4G coverage and you can request access to our Leisure Room (with 52" TV, Wii, treadmill, pinball, turbo cycle trainer, cross t and limited freezer space). There is a playground and multi-use games area sports facility in the village (1/2 mile). There are fabulous views over the valley and to the Chilterns. The cottage is an integral part of a friendly community, in a terrace of 4 houses (we live next door) and we love visitors!
You get the whole cottage and outdoor sitting area and can request to use our Leisure Room.
We live next-door but have busy lives so are not always around, our neighbours are great and will look out for you too. We look forward to meeting you and will do our best to welcome you on arrival.
Parking for one car in front of the house (on hard-standing parking bay). Additional space for a second car available on request.
We are a family of three: Sian (me), Andy and Joe (age 21 and at University).
Our travel style is eclectic - we are as happy in our 1979 VW Campervan as we have been when lucky enough to stay in swanky hotels or tents. Andy and I recently married - he popped the question on the Orient Express and we honeymooned in a Yurt. We like to be independent and value small, friendly guesthouses that make flexible, budget touring possible.
Community and social interaction are important to us and, as hosts, we will do our best to make our guests feel they can enjoy the community we live in. We do, however, respect that some people will not want that and will be as discreet as you want us to be.
