The dining area has a dining table which comfortably seats four. The lounge area has a sofa and armchair, a dvd player, a televison with Freeview. The master bedroom has a king size bed which can unzip into two twin beds, and a wardrobe. The second bedroom has a single bed. The bathroom is a wet room, with spacious shower. Parking is available in the courtyard for tenants use. Although this property does not have a garden, there is a table and chairs outside the front door in the courtyard.. £20 worth of electricity is included in the rental for this property. Electricity cards are available to purchase if more electricity is required. 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. An unusual feature is the sheepwash in the tailrace below the mill. Washing made the fleece easier to shear and increased its value. Stoneground wholemeal flour is on sale during milling demonstrations.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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We rented The Cart House for three weeks while waiting for our New House Completion, so not really used as a holiday stay . Please note it is on a working farm so be prepared for some early morning activities to start around 6.00 am , which was fine for us as I take our two dogs out around that time anyway . Overall pretty good facilities , location near to Tring and Leighton Buzzard

Had a lovely stay at the Cart House. Very peaceful. Had all the facilities you could wish for, plus we could take our dog too! Went out every day "touristing"!
