Ideal for a couple or small family wishing to explore North Bucks or visiting the University of Buckingham or Silverstone. Sleeps 4
At the heart of the vibrant market town of Buckingham is Lacemaker’s Cottage, an oak-beamed, Grade II listed terraced holiday cottage, dating back more than 500 years and believed to be part of the town’s second-oldest building.
The owners refurbished the cottage to a high standard in December 2020 creating a comfortable home-from-home experience. After a day exploring, relax in front of the cosy open log fire, prepare a meal in the shaker style kitchen, or take a stroll to one of the many nearby restaurants, pubs or and takeaways.
The three bedrooms – two double and a single – offer flexible sleeping arrangements for your party of up to four people.
There is one bathroom and a well-equipped kitchen/diner. The sitting room has a double sofa, two chairs and a cosy open fire.
Outside, there’s a small patio to enjoy a morning coffee or an evening a glass of wine.
Buckingham has lots to offer including a good variety of shops with numerous independent traders and traditional cafés, mostly just a short walk from the front door.
Most Saturday mornings a flea market takes place just outside the cottage. For a couple of weekends in October, the Charter Fair brings rides, games and stalls.
A brief stroll from Lacemaker’s Cottage you can explore the banks of the Great Ouse. A tranquil riverside path meanders through parkland and wild spaces. You might even spot an otter.
Lacemaker's Cottage stands in a terrace opposite the old cattle markets. Parking in front of the cottage is free but is on a first come first served basis. Long stay, paid for parking is a couple of minutes’ walk in the Cornwall Meadows car park, across the road behind Waitrose, close to the river.
The entrance to the cottage is via a beamed passageway shared with our neighbour.
Inside there are three floors linked by winding staircases. The rooms are quirky and there are some tight spaces, sloping floors and low ceilings.
The master bedroom has a king size bed and is on the first floor with window to the rear overlooking the neighbours’ gardens.
The single ‘flamingo’ bedroom is also on the first floor, with a window facing onto the High Street.
The second floor is a loft bedroom with sloped ceilings and roof light. Access to the king size bed is from one side.
The small but well equipted bathroom has a shower over the bath and there is a stained-glass window to the first floor landing.
On the ground floor, the sitting room seats four people and the marble kitchen table also seats four.
The cottage is small but comfortable for up to four people. Minimum stay 3 nights. Web site ...coming soon.
