2 Bedroom (1 double, 1 single), 1 Bathroom - "Fully accessible and spacious - this single storey property. Wet room and accessible patio.
Barley End is one of seventeen holiday cottages at Town Farm, on the edge of the Chilterns. We are a working arable farm, with some sheep over the surrounding hills, we are lucky to have views over to Ivinghoe Beacon on one side, and Aylesbury Vale on the other. All the cottages each have their own unique charm, and we also run a campsite during the summer months. It is only a ten minute drive to Tring Railway Station, shops and facilities, or a ten minute walk to Ivinghoe village, with pub, shop and tea room.

Absolutely spotless and spacious accommodation and everything you could possibly need... Dishwasher, washing machine/tumble dryer, fridge freezer, iron, hairdryer, microwave etc etc. Nice quality furniture too. "Barley End" where we stayed has a lovely sunny patio out the back and parking for at least two cars at the front. Large double bedroom and even the single room was more than spacious. Selection of other cottages available from Studios to 3 beds. Very popular as we found out when we asked about future availability.
Obviously a very rural location being a farm, but Tring is a little over 5 minutes away by car, Berkhamsted is about 15 minutes and Aylesbury about half an hour.
Barley End was pleasantly spacious, very clean and benefitted from having been refurbished in recent times. The bedrooms were both of good size and there was excellent wardrobe and drawer storage space for clothes and even better was how comfortable the large bed was.. The shower room had been refurbished and was of a high standard with a pleasantly powerful shower.. The Lounge had a modern good sized flat screen tv and a comfortable corner sofa unit. The kitchen/ dining area was attractively fitted with a full range of appliances. There is also a small paved courtyard to the rear with an outside table/ sitting area. Whilst fairly private you can't see much of the stunning countryside views from here though. There is parking immediately to the front of the property
Whilst Barley End is one of a number of barn conversion properties around a central courtyard we were pleasantly surprised by how quiet and peaceful it was. Along with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff the most stunning thing was the situation. There are glorious and far reaching countryside views to all aspects and lovely countryside walks including a pretty half a mile walk to a very pleasant village pub. Within the farm there are play areas, a games room and a tennis court
Once again stopped at Barley End and as always everything was 100% satisfactory - a slight understatement I must admit as really I cannot think how it could have been better. Have stopped in various other properties at the farm (this was possibly 4th or 5th visit) and have found all the accommodation up to the same high standards as Barley End.
I am already in process of booking a break for early next year at hopefully Barley End. Everything you could possibly require is supplied in Barley End so just arrive and enjoy.
