The Tove Valley Cottages have been created by sympathetically converting a former Victorian model farm, which had become redundant from modern farming practices. The aim of Tove Valley Cottages is to create a good quality and environmentally respectful holiday destination within the heart of the UK. We have implemented a biomass heating system for all the cottages, which uses timber harvested from our sustainable farm woodlands. All the cottages are fitted with the latest low energy appliances to help keep our carbon footprint to a minimum. Where possible we have retained many original features and use reclaimed materials to provide an authentic feel, the limestone used has been quarried off the farm and each stone cut and shaped using hand tools and a small hydraulic stone chopper. With easy access to the A5, M1 and M40 this location is ideal for exploring the surrounding area. Milton Keynes and Northampton are only 20 minutes away, Banbury 30 minutes, Oxford, Stratford upon Avon and the Cotswolds all within an hour, you won't need to travel this far if you didn't want to though. There is literature provided with an abundance of things to do and see in the surrounding area. We offer free unlimited internet access, bluetooth media music system, a small welcome pack on your arrival and bed linen and towels. There are various public footpaths around the farm, if you require some fresh air, but the cottages are very spacious with comfortable furniture so as to allow yourself some time to also sit down and relax. We have permitted 3 of the properties to be pet friendly, this includes, Weasels Way, though strict rules apply, please ask for a copy of this on enquiry.
