  • "Lovely property with equally lovely hosts."

    A great week away the property was perfect for our needs. Always warm with the underfloor heating downstairs a plus. Nice to meet narla she soon recognised us and stopped barking her warnings. The granary had all the equipment we needed to make our stay easy. Plenty of things to do all near by. really enjoyed our evening at the land of lights in Milton Keynes. This property has been added to the Cottages to return to next time we need to be in the area.

  • "The property is lovely and comfortable, and well stocked with everything we needed."

    The owners were on hand if needed, and Nala (one of the dogs) was very welcoming. The property was handy for Bletchley Park which was very interesting, and not too far from the Shuttleworth Collection. Also handy for Milton Keynes and Red Bull Factory. We would come again.

  • "We had a wonderful stay in this lovely cozy property."

    We had everything we needed and our toddler loved the ducks and geese on the pond close to the property. The owners were very welcoming and available to help if needed.

  • "Our stay was somewhat spoilt by the lack of central heating, that we were not informed about before or on our arrival, apparently the main boiler had failed and spare parts were awaited."

    We waited for the heating to come on the first night and were freezing in the bathrooms and bedrooms when it didn’t. There was a heater in the living room, to warm half of it. After sending our first email the next morning, the owner informed us that there were heaters in the cupboard under the stairs and extra blankets. These still weren’t sufficient and we had to email yet again. We were eventually given two oil filled radiators for the bedroom and a new heated clothes airer to dry our wet towels on. This was not much good, as we were asked not to leave it on when we were out. The owner eventually came to apologise and explain her problems, but we are cross that she did not email/ phone us beforehand to explain the cold house and that we had to do all the asking. We paid for a centrally heated house. It was not exactly warm weather for our stay and one of our party suffers badly from circulation problems and is always cold at the best of times. The noise from farm machinery was also excessive at times.

  • "What a wonderful place!"

    The Granary is in a great location atop a hill with wonderful views of the lake and countryside beyond. The house itself is very well equipped, with a great selection of pans and implements in the kitchen. The rooms are beautifully furnished with lovely touches of ornamental flourish and it all feels quite luxurious. Really convenient for Woburn, Bedford and Milton Keynes, and has supermarket and a great chippy in Marston Moretaine 5 minutes away. Can’t wait to come again!

    The extra touches such as baby essentials hamper, coffee and milk all appreciated too. The Granary is decorated beautifully and feels very homely. We found it to be a perfect base for our holiday. Thank you.

  • "It was absolutely fabulous and decorated beautifully for Christmas."

    However the property was let down by the kitchen utensils. The frying pans were dirty and had to be washed before we could use them. The Le Creuset saucepans were very heavy and dangerous as the handles are very loose. Suggestions would be to replace the kitchen utensils and put a dustbin into each of the three bedrooms, not just the small ones in the bathrooms. We arrived a day late and found a dirty coffee mug on the landing window half full. Not nice.

    We always accept criticism with good grace, and do everything we can to ensure our guest have a wonderful experience with us. The property is always expertly cleaned prior to guests arrival, so we were hugely disappointed to learn that an item had escaped our rigorous cleaning regime. We agree for some Le Creuset saucepans are heavy, however there are many other saucepans to chose from in the kitchen. We are not sure why this guests said that there were no bins in the bedrooms, each bedroom has its own waste paper bin, as well as bins in all bathrooms. We had gone to a huge amount of effort to dress the property tastefully for Christmas, with lots of added extras which they clearly appreciated. Property Owner

    Very healthy and tasty food. The Swann is a very good restaurant as well only music too loud, but food is outstanding. An amazing place. Kids has been sailing on the water in front of the farm. Around the farm is nice (John Bunyan)walking trail. A bottle of wine was on the table.

    The hosts were super friendly and made us feel very welcome. We were particularly pleased with the thought and consideration that had gone into preparing the extra touches of the goodies that may be needed for our baby grandson including, hair shampoo for babies, sudocrem etc etc. Never before have we been offered such a vast range of necessities for him and we were overjoyed at the care and consideration given to us. The location itself was so lovely, with great walks close to the farm that we could make use of and our grandson thoroughly enjoyed seeing the tractor and the ducks on the lake. We would highly recommend the granary to others and are looking forward to staying again in the future when we next plan to visit our family who live nearby.
