    “We thought Butterfly Loft was very comfortable, imaginatively designed and in a quiet but very central position.”

    A cosy place to spend an unseasonably cold and wet May week.The welcome pack was very generous and Kate was most attentive and helpful.

The property

Set within a Grade II listed former stable building above the owner's office, Butterfly Loft is a gorgeous, homely base from which two guests can delight in adventures around Buckinghamshire.

Lying in the small town of Stony Stratford just outside Milton Keynes, Butterfly Loft is perfect for week-long walking adventures or a weekend break away.

Enter this historic building and into the hallway to see the owner's office door to the far right, and on the left, the guests' ground-floor shower room and the door up to the living space.

Discover a walk-in shower in the shower room along with a basin, WC and Dyson hand-dryer, with robes and slippers provided when coming to and from the two areas.

Up on the first floor, a beautifully snug setting awaits beneath exposed A-frame beams, with a neat office area with a desk for completing any urgent work, along with two armchairs and a sofa to sink into whilst watching the Smart TV after a busy day outdoors.

Relax here with a book from one of the shelves before putting on the radio and making a start on the evening meal; the kitchen is home to all the essentials you need, with a compact oven and two-ring hob, a microwave, a fridge and even a small dishwasher at your fingertips.

Enjoy meals at the dining table before returning to the sitting area to wind down into the evening in front of the woodburning stove.

When you're ready to retire, find a pretty king-size bedroom featuring more of the butterfly theme, with a convenient en-suite cloakroom.

Retaining its character and ancient market town charm, Stony Stratford is a surprising oasis of calm despite being so close to the bustling hub of Milton Keynes, with a scattering of independent shops, some which have been in business for hundreds of years, along with butchers, bakers, pubs and restaurants, offering all you need on a self-catered stay.

Head out on a walk in the beautiful Ouse Valley Park nearby, home to the Linford Lakes Nature Reserve too, you can admire the lakeside scenery and wildlife, before coming to the Iron Trunk Aqueduct and embarking on its heritage walk.

Enjoy an interesting day out to Bletchley Park, home of the once top-secret world of Codebreaking Huts and Blocks, where famous codebreaker Alan Turing worked on cracking the German Naval Enigma, all set within a wonderful Victorian estate.

The Grand Union Canal is a perfect for scenic strolls, running all the way from London to Birmingham, passing through the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering a great way to explore.

Adventurers will love Treetop Extreme where you can take on the obstacle course up in the tree canopy, set beside the lovely Willen Lake with opportunities for wakeboarding here and other watersports.

Within easy reach of Aylesbury, Northampton and even London, Butterfly Loft is the perfect location for a break to Buckinghamshire.

About the location


Milton Keynes 4.9 miles; Aylesbury 19.9 miles; Northampton 15.1 miles.

Nestled just outside of the lively hub of Milton Keynes is the charming and ancient market town of Stony Stratford. Once an important stop on the journey from London to Chester and the North West, Stony Stratford is a surprising oasis compared to its bustling neighbour. The town enjoys a lovely collection of independent shops, long-standing local businesses and traditional establishments like butchers and bakers, along with pubs, restaurants and shops for all your self-catering needs. Visitors can delight in going to Stony Stratford Nature Reserve and Ouse Valley Park for scenic strolls, passing the Iron Trunk Aqueduct and walking the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside. Milton Keynes holds a variety of attractions, from the fascinating setting of Bletchley Park, a Victorian estate where the famous codebreaker Alan Turing worked on cracking the German Enigma code, to the fun-filled wonders of Gulliver's Land Theme Park Resort, and Willen Lake where you can take part in all manner of fun water sports. The Milton Keynes Museum is perfect for history enthusiasts, set on a Victorian farm with horses, gardens to explore and heritage days, whilst a trip over to Buckingham brings you to the interesting Buckingham Old Gaol and the nearby National Trust Stowe, a magnificent 18th century estate and garden with lakes and temples to discover. Within easy reach of Northampton, Aylesbury and Chiltern Hills AONB, Stony Stratford is a true gem in Milton Keynes' and Buckinghamshire's crown.
