Holiday Rental House
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.

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.
