The Bothy (cottage)

The Bothy is located on a working farm close to Buckingham and is positioned within beautiful farmland, adjacent to Hyde Lane Lakes where fishing is available to members of the Buckingham and District Angling Association.

  • The old market town of Buckingham with monthly farmers market, weekly street markets (held on a Saturday and Tuesday), plenty of eating establishments, shops, tourist information, sports centre and swimming pool.
  • Old Gaol Museum in Buckingham where you can learn about the local history and rural life.
  • The village of Thornborough where you can enjoy a four and a half mile marked walk.

  • Xscape Ski Dome in central Milton Keynes - Europe's largest indoor skiing complex.
