Our lovely cottage in the Buckinghamshire countryside is set in 2 acres of beautiful gardens. It retains its 200-year old thatched cottage charm whilst also being fully adapted for modern living. It’s quiet, peaceful and private

There is a kitchen diner (with Aga + oven), snug, utility room, living room with log burning stove, a library and seven bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms

The garden has a large patio, BBQ, hot tub, playing field and is planted with flowers, shrubs, fruit and veg .

Spring Cottage is a perfect house for a getaway with friends and family, with lots to do in the local area.

The house is also great for small business meetings- you can hold them inside in the kitchen or small sitting room, or even outside if the weather is nice. We can help with catering requirements, business support (eg flip charts and screens) and teas and coffees.

The house and garden can also be used for weddings for up to 100 people - we have links with marquee companies, caterers and florists too

The quiet, pretty village of Great Horwood is in North Buckinghamshire, close to the market town of Buckingham. There is a nice pub within walking distance, and many excellent gastro pubs in the surrounding villages as well. A children’s play area (complete with zip line!) is just a few minutes walk down the lane.

For day trips, the beautiful historic city of Oxford is only an hour away and Cambridge is an hour and a half.

Milton Keynes has plenty of activities available: cinemas, theatres, restaurants, shopping, a Go Ape high ropes course, Willen Lake for water sports, Gulliver’s Land theme park, the Snozone indoor ski slope and the iFly indoor sky diving at the Xscape Building.

Bletchley Park, site of the cracking of the Enigma Code, is also near by, as is Woburn Safari Park. Bicester Village is 30 minutes away; Silverstone is 30 minutes, and we are close to Addington Equestrian Centre.

If you are interested in garden and National Trust properties, we are close to Waddesdon Manor, Stowe, Claydon House, Ascott House, Ashridge, Hughenden, Woburn, and Blenheim Palace.

We are situated 20 minutes outside Milton Keynes; far enough away to be in peaceful countryside, but close enough for easy access to the shops, cinemas and trains.

Milton Keynes Central train station is only 35 minutes from London Euston; 1h30 from Manchester Piccadilly. Taxis from the station are easy and cheap to book in advance. London Luton Airport is less than an hour away; Heathrow is 1h15 and Birmingham airport less than 1h30.

Where you’ll be

Great Horwood, England, United Kingdom

Our village is situated between the delightful market towns of Buckingham and Winslow, has a nice pub (and a fabulous gastro pub just a short drive away) and a fantastic children’s play area about 2 minutes’ walk down the lane. Its a friendly village with a small green in the middle and lovely walks through fields and countryside.

We have lived in Great Horwood for over 18 years and really love the village. We bought the cottage when it had only 2 bedrooms and was a bit unloved. Since then we have added bedrooms, bathrooms, a dining room and extended the kitchen. Oh and we put a new thatched roof on the whole house! Howard restores historical gardens and is passionate about all things gardening generally. Ann runs a marketing agency specialising in Leisure and Hospitality clients based in Milton Keynes We love using AirBnB when we go away so hope you love our house too for your holidays, weekends or meetings.

During your stay
We will try and help with caterers, birthday cakes, taxis, pick-ups, restaurant bookings and even yoga classes if we can - in fact anything which will make your stay extra special.

We can also organise tours to gardens nearby as Howard specialises in restoring historic gardens and gardens are his passion - if you want a course on how to make garden tubs and pots, then he would love to organise them for you here at the house.

We live in a flat just across from the house when we have guests and we are often around to answer questions personally though you can always text, phone, email or whatsapp us if you have any queries at any time. If we are not here, then my daughter who has a small cottage next to the house, can also help. We will not intrude on your privacy though you may see us out and about (as unobtrusively as possible)
