Where we are:
Our two holiday cottages are converted period barns on our family farm in Kingsey, a hamlet in Buckinghamshire. The decked area outside each cottages has views over our fields to the Chilterns which is an Area of Outstanding Beauty. Thame is our local market town, and nearby is the historic village of Haddenham which is frequently used to film Midsomer Murders. Oxford is 14 miles away with its ‘dreaming spires’ which are so familiar to anyone who has watched Morse and Lewis.
Our cottages are let on a weekly basis, some bedrooms and bathrooms are on the ground floor, and the fully equipped kitchens include a fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is a shared laundry room next to our cottages.
The Ploughshed (sleeps 4) is a stone barn built about 100 years ago, and The Hayloft (sleeps 6) was built as a 6 horse stable 140 years ago.
We are 35 minutes out of London on the train and 16 miles from Oxford and Henley. Each cottages has an information booklet about the local amenities and places to visit.
The cottages are for your use with a private decked area at the entrance to each cottage. There is a small field next to the cottages where children can play. We are a working farm so all the farm buildings are out of bounds.
Other things to note:
Wifi is available by request (dongle) , we do not allow pets (except assistance pets) to stay on the premises, and our whole property is non-smoking.
We do not have public transport in Kingsey, but the Chiltern railway line runs through Haddenham, and Thame (2 miles away) has numerous bus links to surrounding towns. We have a parking next to each cottage which easily accommodates up to 6 cars.
During your stay:
We will greet you when you arrive at our cottages, and we are available to answer questions, recommend local pubs, and point you towards local tourist attractions. We live next door to the cottages so are able to sort out any problems that may arise during your stay. We are experienced, highly rated hosts who are committed to providing great stays for guests.
