“great find”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

spent 2 nights here as part of a business trip to nearby Wolverton. The white heart was recommended by my customer. I must say that the accommodation was superb, as was the attached pub. very friendly staff and owners, great food in the pub. really enjoyed my brief stay. would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area, close to Silverstone for race enthusiasts.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is a fantastic little cottage. It has been converted to a high standard and with taste and style. It is difficult to find any fault with the place. Alan is friendly and approachable. My only disappointment was that I was only staying 1 night, I would have happily spent a week there.

“Little Gem”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at this wonderful property for two weeks. It is extremely well maintained and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The Stables have been renovated to a very high standard. Perfect for families. Great location. Country walks along picturesque canal towpaths are literally minutes away on foot. Fifteen minutes by car to Milton Keynes which is a shopping/entertainment area including theatre, cinema, lots of restaurants and family activities. Milton Keynes also has a fast nonstop trains to London which takes approximately 40 minutes. The owners could not have done more to make our stay so special. I intend to recommend this accommodation to my friends and family.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have just returned from a long weekend staying at Old Stable Cottage. The cottage is stone built with a very modern interior.On arrival we found the cottage to be pristine clean, and had everything we could possibly need during our stay. The proprietors Alan and Andrew had left for us cereal,milk,butter,preserves etc and a lovely fresh baked loaf for our breakfast.
The adjacent pub The White Hart served lovely food by very welcoming staff. I have a gluten intolerance and this is sometimes difficult for me in other places, but Alan the chef and licencee made choosing gluten free menu options very easy.
The end of our stay was highlighted by joining in with the weekly pub quiz run by Nigel. Nigel went out of his way to include us, as did all the local people.
We would definately like to return to Old Stable Cottage and meet up with our new friends in Northampton, unfortunately we can't get to the quiz every week!

A beautiful property, well furnished with all things one could need, from coffee machine to a washing machine. A good landlord, helpful but not intrusive. Alan owns and run the pub Iin whose grounds the holiday let sits. Found In the pub is excellent.

We used the property for two weeks whilst moving house, found it to be warm, comfortable and easy to stay in.

Thank you Alan and Andy

“Excellent accommodation, ideal for a quiet break”
Reviewed 21 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I was looking for somewhere that I could relax and switch off for a few days, and this place was ideal, furnished to a very high standard with all the amenities you could wish if you want to look after yourself. The cottage is decorated to a very high order, with lots of thought gone into the layout of the space, making good use of every part, a kitchen with all mod cons, and supplied with basics like bread and milk, coffee, tea, breakfast items. Good size bedroom and a lovely shower and bathroom. The owner is both efficient and very amenable, booking was easy, access was simple as was finding the place. All in all it was precisely what I was looking for and would both definitely return there, and recommend it to others.
