The Stables at Baylins Farm can accommodate four to six guests in comfort and sits in a wonderful tranquil setting where you can enjoy a peaceful relaxing holiday. Formerly the original farm stables, the ‘weatherboarded’ barn has been beautifully renovated to provide comfortable modern self-catering accommodation.
Created to provide accommodation for the owner's family when visiting from France, The Stables is available to let on a weekly basis when they are not visiting. It is also often available for a short break so please enquire.
Dating back to 1450, Baylins Farm enjoys a secluded position and is a Grade II listed, half-timbered building. Strongly connected to the early 20th Century Arts and Crafts Movement, the farm has been in the family for three generations and its out-buildings have been converted for creative and cultural use as the farm is no longer in work.
Nestling in four acres of extensive grounds including private gardens for relaxing and paddocks, the farm adjoins the undulating countryside of the glorious Chiltern Hills where you can enjoy lovely walks through the renowned Bucks beech woods. Located in between Oxford and London, The Stables are ideal for those who want to explore both the wonderful landscape of the Chiltern Hills (AONB) and the Thames Valley. It is also within easy reach of the many attractions of London, Windsor and Oxford.
A car is essential to explore this central location but Beaconsfield train station is just one mile away offering a regular service into Central London within just forty minutes. The farm is only three miles from Junction 2 of the M40 and Heathrow Airport is fourteen miles.
The market town of Beaconsfield has a good choice of amenities including two supermarkets for stocking up on provisions, smaller independent shops and a good choice of pubs and restaurants.

Additional information: Bed-linen and towels are provided. Under floor heating throughout keeps it warm and cosy underfoot. Unfortunately no pets. Changeover day is Monday or Friday and short breaks available out of peak season. Wi-Fi access available but mobile phone reception inside is limited as the building is so well insulated. The ground floor accommodation (including bedrooms) may be suitable for people with limited mobility as it is on the level with just up a couple of steps from the exterior, however the gravel paths approaching The Stables are not wheelchair friendly.
