Description

Quiet and relaxing location with opportunity to explore the Buckinghamshire countryside and towns/villages. Ideal for single or couple who enjoys the outside life. We have a 6 acre plot which is only 4 miles from the centre of Aylesbury and under 2 miles from the nearest village (Quainton). Waddesdon Manor is only 3 miles away.

We have 3 very friendly spaniels who do not require walking off the property as they can roam freely around our plot and are very ‘helpful’. We also have 3 horses – 2 are retired and the third will have the week off when we are away. They live in at night and out for most of the day so they need feeding, haying, mucking out, rugging up, turning out and bringing in. Additionally there are 2 Shetland ponies who also live in but have a small turn out paddock as well. We do have a groom who helps during the week and we can keep her on for this week if that helps. There is also a rabbit and 2 guinea pigs who are easy to care for.

Our property is a four bedroom semi detached with no other near neighbours – the couple next door are very quiet and helpful.

Ideal for someone who enjoys walking, cycling and exploring but there is work to do to look after the animals so I’m afraid it’s not a sit back with your feet up opportunity…
