Ivinghoe, Aylesbury Vale, Buckinghamshire, England
Ridgeway is an attractive holiday cottage at Town Farm, that has recently been converted. Town Farm is a working farm nestled at the foot of the Chiltern Hills and has been run by the Leach family since the early 1930s. About 1,000 sheep are farmed on the Beacon Hill and surrounding high ground, while the lower fields are used for crop cultivation. The `Pick Your Own` opens in June and guests can take a picnic and stock up on fruit and vegetables. The farm enjoys fantastic views of the surrounding countryside including the local landmark - Ivinghoe Beacon, which marks the start of the famous Ridgeway Walk.

Ridgeway is a barn conversion which benefits from heating by electric radiators. Wireless broadband is available.

It is a ground floor property. The living area is open plan, with the kitchen fully equipped with cooker, microwave, fr...

We rented Ridgeway for a family Christmas as our daughter lives in Hemel Hempstead and couldn't make it home for Christmas. Ridgeway was perfect for a family of four with grown up children. The main open plan living area / kitchen was larger than it appeared in the photographs, making for a very pleasant living area. Location is great for...

If you like self-catering and are looking for peace and quiet this is the place for you. The property is equipped with everything you might need, has two double bedrooms, so the brother and his wife was able to join us for a few days. Although, while there, we had a fair bit of rain it was soothing to listen...

Management response:

This was a different holiday for us as we weren't by a beach! We used this cottage as a base for two visits to London and museums and attractions in the area (Roald Dahl museum, Buckinghamshire steam centre). The cottage caters well for families with a lovely playground and tennis court. It perhaps lacks the "cosiness" of other cottage that...
