Duncan is the third generation of his family to farm Chilton Grounds Farm. Partner Diana and son Charlie make up the host family. A herd of beef cows that suckle their calves for 8-9 months each year and a flock of breeding sheep graze the 150 acres of pasture but wild bird and animal life, and their habitats, are regarded with equal importance to the whole family. A handful of free-range Chickens love roaming far and wide, there are two lovely dogs called Saker and Lanner and a cat called Phil. I am passionate about wildlife and the animals on my farm Love sport especially Rugby Like positive people and attitudes
Duncan purchased this Barn in 1926
Why Duncan chose Aylesbury
Cutter's barn is named after Duncan's grandfather who's nickname was 'Cutter' because he would cut (castrate) horses for people in the surrounding area. He purchased Chilton Grounds Farm in 1926 after growing up and farming locally. In 2010 a major refurbishment was started and from an old cowshed and feed store it was transformed into a comfortable residential barn conversion with a sustainable renewable energy heating and hot water system.
What makes this Barn unique

Just returned from 3days and the barn was fantastic! Really enjoyed the indoor and outdoor spaces. Kitchen has all the essentials plus much more - really handy for cooking and baking. Beautiful interior design and a really comfortable property. Would recommend to anyone!
Great place for a gathering
We meet annually with our friends as a group of six and this was the perfect venue for a get-together. The whole downstairs is a large sociable space, wonderfully warm and well kitted out. Lots to do nearby and the farm itself with its 50-odd species of birds has a lot to see. Diana and Duncan were very welcoming and helpful and (a first for us) checked the property and returned the breakages deposit within 24 hours. Highly recommended

Excellent home in a beautiful location
We’ve had a great time staying at the barn. Duncan and his family are very welcoming and friendly. The barn is beautifully decorated and is so well equipped with everything you need to make it a home from home.
The countryside surrounding the barn is amazing, a great view to wake up to and for countryside walks.
Thanks for letting us stay!
