Description from owner


Pinn Cottage is a lovely country house down a quiet lane in a rural setting near the Buckinghamshire/Oxfordshire border. Enjoy green views, peace and quiet and creature comforts whilst only 30 minutes away from the centres of Oxford, Bicester or Aylesbury, and from the M40. Set in large private gardens the house is fully furnished and well-equipped, and has the benefit of underfloor heating throughout, a 4-oven Aga cooker and a wood-burning stove. The floors are either stone tile or wood. It is not carpeted, apart from the stairs.

Downstairs the large kitchen is the focus of the house, with a light and bright dining area built in conservatory style and leading through french doors to outdoor terraces on both sides. Cooking is done on the Aga range, which also has a double ring electric hob on one side, useful in the summer when it may be too warm to use the Aga. The kitchen is fitted with a large Whirlpool US-style ice- and water-dispensing fridge, and Miele dishwasher. The utility room houses a washing machine and butler's sink, a wine fridge, with a shelved pantry and further wine store off it. There is also a spacious separate dining room perfect for more formal gatherings. The dining room and living room sit cosily side by side, in the older 'cottage' part of the house, with a dual aspect wood-burning stove in the fireplace between. Logs are stored at the side of the house. Off the entrance hall is a small study which can provide a quiet bolt-hole to compose e-mails if work calls.

Upstairs are four double bedrooms, 2 of which have ensuite shower rooms, while the other 2 share a family bathroom with bath and shower. The master bedroom has a superking size bed, and a walk-through wardrobe area leading to the ensuite with double-basin and walk-in shower; bedroom two has a king size bed and ensuite shower room; bedroom 3 has two single beds, one of which stows under the other when not required; bedroom 4 has a double bed and shares the main bathroom with bedroom 3. There is also a downstairs cloakroom lavatory. Linens and towels are provided.

On the main terrace there is garden dining furniture, and a barbecue on the smaller terrace. At the top of the garden is a summerhouse and deck with all-weather rattan seating area where you can enjoy far-reaching views over the countryside and many a red sunset. The summerhouse has a power supply, so there is a fridge for drinks, and lights for those late summer evenings. The garden is largely south-facing and well-established, sloping up from the house with several sets of steps leading to the top, (hence unsuitable for toddlers or anyone with limited mobility). There is ample parking in front of the house for 4 cars.

The old thatched villages of Long Crendon and Haddenham are only one mile and three miles away respectively; in between is our local market town of Thame with its variety of shops (incl Waitrose) and weekly market. The area is blessed with a huge choice of excellent pubs and restaurants, from our local favourite just around the corner to Michelin-starred establishments a short drive away.

Our nearest station, ten minutes away, is Haddenham & Thame Parkway on the Chiltern Line out of London Marylebone, so we are easily commutable from London. We are also very easily accessible from the M40.

House rules

We do not recommend the property for toddlers as there are a lot of steep steps outside and the garden is on a slope. Despite this we do have many families staying - accordingly parents must accept all responsibility for their children.
The No Smoking rule also applies to the garden - surely nobody thinks it is acceptable to throw cigarette ends in flower pots and borders for someone else - maybe a child?- to pick up?! Yuk!
Breakages happen, but please report these to the house manager.

Very Good

“Perfect large country cottage and garden”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2017

Plenty of space for gathering of family or friends, with a super kitchen diner and also a formal dining room. Beautifully furnished with a comfortable lounge, and four spacious and comfortable bedrooms. Plenty of bathrooms- no queues! We had lovely weather and made use of the little summer house at the top of the garden for drinks at sunset with amazing views over the countryside. Felt very welcome in this lovely house.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind words. So pleased you enjoyed your stay for your family gathering, and delighted you had the weather for sundowners at the summerhouse!
