This house is very comfortable and well equipped. It is peaceful and offers superb views. There is lots to do within a short drive. We spent four days here with our boys aged 7 and 10 and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is at the base of the Chiltern Hills, a beautiful wooded set of rolling hills in the centre of England. London is only 50 minute train ride away, with a wealth of attractions for the visitor. More locally both Ascott House and Waddesdon Manor are 10 minutes and 30 minutes away respectively. Both are owned by the Rothschild family and are stunning properties - Waddesdon has the appearance of a French chateau and is filled with beautiful furniture. Ascott House was described as a 'A palace like cottage, the most luxurious and lovely thing I ever saw'. This was how Gladstone's daughter, Mary, described Ascott after a visit in the 1880s. If you prefer more Medieval History, Warwick Castle or Hampton Court are both accessible (but in opposite directions!) and both offer medieval entertainment at certain times of the year.
How to get there
Fly to Luton (16 miles away) or Heathrow (36 miles), hire a car from there or take a bus from Luton Airport or a train into London from Heathrow. The property is only a few miles from Tring Station, on the mainline rail from London, and a car would be advised. Please make sure you type the postcode into your SatNav to get directions to Town Farm Ivinghoe.
