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.
Baylins Farm is a secluded Grade II listed, half-timbered building which mainly dates back to 1450. With strong links 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 cultural and creative purposes as this is no longer a working farm.
Nestling in four acres of grounds with private gardens and paddocks, the farm adjoins the rolling farmland of the Chiltern Hills to the West where you can enjoy lovely walks through the renowned Bucks beech woods. Located in between Oxford and London, The Stables provides an ideal base for exploring both the wonderful countryside of the Chiltern Hills (AONB) and the Thames Valley. It is also within easy reach of the many attractions and historic sites of London, Windsor and Oxford.
A car is essential to explore this central location but Beaconsfield railway station is just one mile away offering a good 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 two big supermarkets for stocking up on provisions, along with a good range of smaller independent shops and a wide selection 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.
