“Lovely Christmas”
Reviewed 2 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We rented Ridgeway for a family Christmas as our daughter lives in Hemel Hempstead and couldn't make it home for Christmas.

Ridgeway was perfect for a family of four with grown up children. The main open plan living area / kitchen was larger than it appeared in the photographs, making for a very pleasant living area.

Location is great for active families with Ivinghoe beacon and the the ridgeway walk right on the doorstep.

Only really small points to improve - the kitchen could be slightly better equipped if you intend to cook meals in the cottage. We were there for Christmas and cooked a full Christmas lunch which was possible with a little juggling. But a little more cutlery and crockery would make life easier.

Booking and Arrangements for access to the accommodation were fine, with lots of communication. We were made to feel welcome and the office on site on the gram means somebody is usually around if you have questions or need any help.

Very nice place in a surprisingly rural location.

“Peace and quiet.”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

If you like self-catering and are looking for peace and quiet this is the place for you. The property is equipped with everything you might need, has two double bedrooms, so the brother and his wife was able to join us for a few days. Although, while there, we had a fair bit of rain it was soothing to listen to the pitter patter of raindrops on the gravel in the courtyard. This is a working farm, but nothing dangerous I would suggest, the field with the rams is signposted, so STAY OUT. The farm is situated in the countryside, 5 mins drive to nearest village with small shop, 15 mins to nearest town with a Supermarket, easy to follow directions in the welcome pack. Beautiful area for walking. Also available on the farm are caravan stands and a camping area. We give it 100%.

“A great location and cottage”
Reviewed 7 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This was a different holiday for us as we weren't by a beach! We used this cottage as a base for two visits to London and museums and attractions in the area (Roald Dahl museum, Buckinghamshire steam centre).
The cottage caters well for families with a lovely playground and tennis court.
It perhaps lacks the "cosiness" of other cottage that have books and games that can be used by those staying at the premises. We were also a bit confused as to how the heating system worked, the instructions stating that the timer would control the heating so should not be touched but on arrival all war switches were in the off position, similarly with the underfloor heating and towel rail.
The community cottages in the courtyard would lend itself to family or large group breaks.
I would recommend this cottage to others

Liked best: The spacious accommodation, decor, countryside and location - can't pick just one.
Liked least: The only (very minor) improvement I can suggest is a few more pots, pans, plates, cutlery etc - we loved cooking in this great kitchen.
