Heating by electric radiators. There is a fishing lake on site, and arrangements can be made to use this. there is also a Watermill on site, Ford End Watermill. This little mill, recorded in 1616 but certainly very much older, was in use until 1963. Restored by volunteers, and now maintained and run by Ford End Watermill Society, it is the only remaining working watermill in Buckinghamshire with original machinery. It retains all the atmosphere of a small farm mill of the late 1800`s. More

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

. Great location, lovely pub in walking distance that serves fantastic food. A lovely cafe also in walking distance that has amazing cakes and coffees with a great park next door. We found a broken item but was quickly dealt with and replaced. WiFi not great. Not the cleanest but fine Would recommend and would stay again

The Bull Pen is very spacious and comfortably accommodates 6. The bedrooms could do with a deep clean especially the carpets and en suite shower. The farm is ideally situated to explore the surrounding area. There is no entertainment for children on site.

We had a three week stay in The Bull Pen due to our house flooding. In a stressful situation this place really was my saving grace! The location is beautiful, Ivinghoe is a lovely village and the locals all made us feel welcome. The cottage is perfect for a family of 5, and with exposed beams and surrounded by a family run farm, it’s perfect for a break from reality! Paul is a fantastic host and made us feel like nothing was a problem. The park is just a 4 min walk and was a big hit little with our little ones. Right next to the park is the curiositea cafe, where you can get a great English breakfast! Buckinghamshire’s last working water mill is practically in the back garden and a great little visit - we came home with freshly milled flour. Another recommendation was the pick your own farm which is a 5 min journey to the next village, The nicest way to spend an afternoon and we came home with a wheelbarrow full of vegetables, which we made into soup! However f you don’t fancy cooking but fancy a lovely Sunday dinner and some amazing puds, then the rose & Crown is a 5 min walk. You’ll find friendly locals and a nice kid and dog friendly atmosphere. All in all couldn’t have enjoyed our stay here anymore!

The cottage was in a good location out in the countryside but close to Aylesbury for shops. Used Tring railway station to go to London a couple of times. Good sized rooms and had everything we needed to unwind.

A very well furnished home from home with everything you need to make your stay special. Paul (the owner), has been exceptionally helpful and always on hand, if needed. The cottage is very spacious with every facility you need and very clean. Locally, Tring is a few minutes away, a lovely town with good shopping facilities and local markets. My family and I have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend.
