Whether you are visiting family or friends (Buckingham University is within easy reach), away on business or simply want to get away for a few nights to recharge, Shoemakers Cottage provides all the right ingredients for a relaxing break.
Sandwiched between the county town of Aylesbury and Buckingham (which once used to be the county town), the cottage sits in the ancient market town of Winslow with a good range of amenities on the doorstep.
