4/5 bedroom house with hot tub in a charming village location.


Just 50 minutes into London by car and train (1 1/2 hour drive by car only), 1 hour drive from historic Oxford and Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford Upon Avon and further afield, 3 hours to amazing fossil hunting on the Jurassic Coast going south and the same distance to the Lake District, home of Beatrix Potter going north.

Locally, we’re a 15-20 minute drive from Milton Keynes, with one of Europes largest shopping centres and many leisure pursuits including an indoor snow dome. 10-15 minute drives get you to Silverstone (home of the British Grand Prix) and the Whittlebury Hall Spa and Golf Course respectively.

Our house:

We live in a 4/5 bedroom house (sadly not one of the beautiful thatched cottages!) with a well stocked playroom, kitchen diner and a separate ‘school’ room. The conservatory houses the large hot tub with a shower room adjacent. Outside, the garden is relatively small but has a large thatched outdoor sitting area and we are a 30 second walk to miles and miles of fields with plenty of room to explore, walk and play!

Our village has a lovely communal orchard with free seasonal produce including apples, pears, cherries, blackcurrents, blackberries and varieties of bits to name a few, as well as lots of foraging opportunities for elderflower/elderberries and other wild berries in the hedgerows. There is a village church and local pub within easy walking distance.
