Close to London and with loads to see and do in Buckinghamshire itself staying in a Farm Stay cottage or B&B will still give you the feel of the countryside and a place of relaxation and comfort, as well as excellent value, especially for those booking outside of term times.
Bekonscot Model Village and Railway is a miniature village arranged in stunning detail, Bekonscot has been a staple attraction in Buckinghamshire since 1929. This is a great destination for those with children but can also easily be enjoyed by those without,
thanks to the painstaking effort put in by the curators of the park to include as much intricacy and detail as possible.
For those who definitely don’t want to be around children and who enjoy a beer, the Rebellion Beer Company is the perfect destination. With 3 beers available all year round, 2 regular 500ml bottled beers, 4 seasonal ales and 12 monthly beers produced throughout the year, there is plenty to sample and something to suit everyone’s tastes.
