We stayed at the Little Barn weekend of 29th October 2005. The accomodation was really first class, owners very helpful with pre visit enquiries promptly & accurately answered. It is really a little gem in Buckinghamshire, but if i could suggest without offending Mrs Reid, perhaps a coffee table in the sitting room, nowhere to put a glass or cup when relaxing in the sofa's apart from the floor which is so close to a lovely rug.
I really enjoyed my stay at this delightful cottage. It is well decorated and well equipped with lots of little extras. The garden is stunning with amazing views of the surrounding countryside.
The village is small, but there is pub within walking distance and a bus stop which can take you straight into Oxford.
The Little Barn provides truly excellent accommodation in peaceful surroundings. It is tastefully furnished, equipped to a high standard, situated in a beautiful garden, and its owners are very welcoming and helpful. It provides all modern comforts within a relaxed rural setting, but is also conveniently located for easy access to Aylesbury and other nearby towns. It is without doubt one of the most delightful places in which I have stayed and I recommend it without hesitation.
The Best Kept Secret
The Little Barn is the best self-catering accommodation I have ever staid in over the years, during my numerous visits of the UK.
Calling it a B&B does not do it justice. It is a beautiful 'home from home' (in fact, many of us would love to have a home like it!). The accommodation itself is delightful, spacious and spotless and the gardens are beautiful. It is extremely conveniently situated, in proximity of 'civilisation' at the same time as giving the impression it is remote. Last but not least, the landlords are extremely nice people, who will be helpful to their guests but award them total privacy.
The Little Barn is the ideal place to get away from it all and have a restful and quiet time for the few days at an extremely reasonable price.
I will undoubtedly go back to the Little Barn at the first available opportunity. Experience it now, while it is still The Best Kept Secret!
