Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Excellent comfortable cottage with lovely woodland walks within walking distance. Chesham is only 5 minutes away with a underground station to the centre of London. Several lovely towns and villages in the area, we had a lovely relaxing holiday. Nov 2012.
  2. Compact cottage but equipped with everything you could want for a very comfortable stay. Owners are available on site, but respect guests privacy and stay away – which we really appreciated. Large garden is private, but one border is a hedge which may not be secure for many dogs. Note that only small pets are allowed – not sure why as I took my Bullmastiff (not realising that there was this restriction!) he loved it, and as he is very well behaved caused no damage. Sept 2012.
  3. Very comfortable cottage in a fairly quiet location. Found it to be a good base for exploring the Chilterns and many excellent national trust properties in the area. As Chesham, which is only 3 miles away, is at the end of the Underground, we were able to enjoy a visit to London as well. June 2012.
  4. This is an excellent base to visit London and great for family days out to whipsnade zoo and legoland. The cottage was perfect for a small family. June 2012.
  5. The Stables had everything we needed for our holiday, it was just as described and we were very happy with it. March 2012.
  6. Perfectly situated, friendly owner, really nice quiet break. March 2012.
  7. The cottage was well situated for country walks and visits to the capital. It was very cosy and the owners helpful and friendly. Dec 2011.
  8. The property is very clean and comfortable. The location is great for visiting London, it is in a queit location close to all the places we wished to visit, I recomend this location. Sept 2011.
  9. Our family had a lovely time at the cottage which was a home from home for us as it is a farm! The owners were warm, friendly and very helpful. Loved the quirky cottage with the beams and lovely fireplace. Will be recommending to friends! Aug 2011.
  10. For the particular break we wanted this area & this cottage for were especially good. Cottage very convenient and adequate for two. Easy access to NT and other properties nearby. Self catering equipment better than most - and they even had a tray to carry things on!! - and, believe it or not, a cafeteria too, sadly missing in many properties we have had. I take my own now. Owners very welcoming and other neighbours very friendly. We had a really good time. The road surfaces in Buckinghamshire are appalling so prepare for bumpy rides. If you don’t know the area you need a "Landranger" Ordnance Survey Map (1 Km to the inch)to find ways through the many lanes and sideroads which are not well placed on bigger road maps. The property did not have one - possibly borrowed ? We shall probably return some when. June 2011.
  11. Beautifully decorated and so cosy and warm in the winter. Feb 2011.
  12. Very comfortable with good beds and a warm and cosy feel to it due to Christmas decorations and "woodburner". Dec 2010.
  13. Very Clean, well presented cottage, nice conversion of an old barn. Although close to the road which passes the farm, this does not cause any problems either with noise or risk of running out into the road. Very happy to see that we had a small bottle of milk on arrival with Tea and coffee, nice touch. July 2010.
  14. Nice barn conversion, well furnished and peaceful. Beautiful surroundings and London is surpricingly close. July 2010.
  15. The property exceeded out expectations. It was warm, comfortable and cosy. The period featres added to our enjoyments and it was very well equipped. The location was fantastic, just a short car ride to the train station for London. May 2010.
  16. A smart, cosy stable conversion which is well kept. Feb 2010.
  17. A lovely cosy cottage ideal for anyone with a dog. Warm and friendly welcome and very helpful throughout. Jan 2010.
  18. Compact, but a good base for exploring the area. Oct 2009.
  19. Better than expected, very warm and cosy cottage, very suitable for our needs on that holiday. Oct 2009.
  20. Nice, compact and very quiet. July 2009.
