A wonderful cottage with character, cosy and has everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from the cottage after spending the weekend celebrating a family 50th birthday, it was perfect in every way! From the moment we arrived and Rachel showed us around it felt like home. The only bad thing was having to leave on Sunday! The cottage was full of character but with all the modern amenities, everything was first class with quality bedding and towels provided. The Pilgrim pub across the road from the cottage was very welcoming we had an evening meal which was superb.

It was great for walking, with several marked walks available from the village. Also a short distance away from National Trust properties with woodland walks, or Milton Keynes for shopping.

Thank you Rachel and family, we had a wonderful time and hope to return again soon.

Perfect location for us

  • 4 of 5

We booked the cottage as a central spot to explore an area of England neither of us had ever visited before. It proved to be a perfect choice as we were able to visit Bletchley, Windsor, London, North Downs with comparative ease. The delightful pub across across the road was a bonus.

We have had a lovely stay in Manor Farm Stables. Very well appointed cottage with lots of character in beautiful countryside. The cottage is very comfortable and quiet. The pub across the road is great, amazing food and hospitality.

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This fabulous 300 year old stable conversion was a wonderful retreat for us, and perfectly situated to visit the Cotswolds, Oxford, The Making of Harry Potter and the beautiful surrounding countryside. It was so peaceful here, yet 30 min from everything, including Heathrow. Rachel and Pete have put a lot of thought into created a charming, relaxing, beautiful haven out in the country. Everything was top-notch quality and so comfortable! We would highly recommend Manor Farm Stable to anyone wanting to get away from it all, while still being convenient.

Beautiful cottage, perfect location for a quiet family break

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely, a stable block attached to the main house with lovely character features. The owners, Rachel and Pete were on hand if required, really friendly but non intrusive. Our daughter loved been able to play in the garden as well.

The cottage was lovely and clean and the 65 inch tv a real bonus.

The village pub is 2 mins walk away and the food was outstanding. Would definitely recommend rating there.

We used the cottage as a stopover between Legoland and home for a couple of days of relaxing. It was perfect 😀

An excellent retreat and would highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We has a truly excellent stay in this well cared for cottage. There was everything you needed for a very comfortable break. Great local amenities including a community run local shop as well as an all important pub very close by. We travelled easily to various National Trust places. There were also great eating places in surrounding villages /towns. We were totally delighted with this lovely village where the locals were very friendly. We're definitely going back.
