A quiet, warm village retreat in a spacious and private apartment. Separate building in garden of main house with use of the 1 acre of garden. in Midsomer Murders country on the edge of the Chilterns AONB with easy access to Oxford and London . You’ll love my place because of the peace, privacy, light, and large outdoor space. Perfect for couples, walkers, solo adventurers, and families. Escape the crowds with access to all amenities. In the heart of village, close to pub but very peaceful.

The space
This is a country retreat with your own private, detached first floor apartment in the grounds of a historic thatched home. You have access to the extensive and beautiful grounds. Your accommodation was originally built as a studio for the 20th Century Artist, Stanley Anderson. His work is still highly desirable today and recently had his own exhibition at the Royal Academy. He was inspired by the country setting and peace.

The apartment consists of an open plan lounge diner/ kitchen, a very spacious double bedroom and a compact but modern and well equipped shower room. We provide all bedding, towells and a fully equipped kitchen.

There is one king size bed in the bedroom and a double sofa bed in the lounge. The king size bed has a lovely pocket spring mattress. The sofa bed is best for children or teenagers. While it is a good quality sofa bed it does have the limitations of being a sofa bed!

We have a superb washing machine and free super fast wifi

Safe on site parking

Guest access
You will have the use of the apartment to yourself. We also provide a parking space and you are welcome to use the garden which is quite magnificent in the summer.
We are on hand to provide any advice or deal with any issues

Other things to note
Please be aware that we have 2 friendly dogs

The accommodation is on the first floor so is sadly not suitable for disabled guests or those who struggle with stairs. We do have a stair gate at the top of the stairs to provide a safe environment for children.

We would recommend having a car

Location

Towersey, England, United Kingdom

Towersey is a small, traditional village about 1 mile from the very pretty market town of Thame. Towersey has many thatched and other historic buildings, a park, a church, a village pub with a good beer garden. The village is on a minor road so is generally quiet with light traffic only.

The apartment is in the garden of the main house. The main house is thatched, built in around 1620 and was believed to be the village blacksmiths (we regularly find old horseshoes in the gardens).

The apartment itself is believed to have been built in the 1930's (with a tiled roof) and was used as a studio for famous artist Stanley Anderson who escaped the bombing of London to complete many of the works that earn him a highly covered fellowship of the Royal Academy
