Property, setting and location:
Built in 1847, Clifton Pastures has been in the ownership of the Finn-Kelcey family for three generations. This lovely old farmhouse stands in private grounds with outstanding views of the unspoilt valley of the River Ouse.
Ideally situated in the heart of England, day visits can easily be made to Oxford, Cambridge, Stratford-upon-Avon and even London, as well as many stately homes nearby including Woburn Abbey, Althorp and Waddesden Manor. The National Trust gardens of Stowe House, the Formula One race track at Silverstone and the Shuttleworth Collection are all within a short drive. The attractive old market town of Olney with antique shops and plenty of restaurants and pubs is 3 miles away. Other points of local interest include the Aston Martin factory at Newport Pagnell and Bicester's Factory Outlet Shopping Village.
Jane and Andrew offer their guests a very warm welcome into their elegant and comfortably furnished home and take great pride in providing a truly relaxed and informal atmosphere.
Clifton Pastures is a member of Wolsey Lodges, a list of most exclusive British guesthouses.
