About Town Farm Cottages, Ivinghoe
I originally come from Cape Town, South Africa, and my home is now on the farm in Ivinghoe. My husband's family have owned Town Farm since the 1930's, it is an arable farm, with some sheep farming. Our brother in law also has a "Pick your own" just down the road, with everything from Asparagus in Spring, strawberries, and a long list of fresh vegetables throughout the summer into Autumn. We now have 17 cottages on site, which we started converting from barns in 1995. Many of our guests have enjoyed staying with us from all parts of the world and appreciate the beautiful countryside around us and there is always plenty to do.

All our properties are comfortably furnished and offer all the convenience of your own home, all with fully equipped kitchens, some with dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. Linen and towels are also provided, together with an information pack in the property, with a list of local activities and things to do.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love the area because you can be in the middle of the countryside one minute and hopping on the train for a 50 minute ride to London the next. The Chiltern Hills offer a wide variety of activities, from National Trust properties, walking through the bluebell woodlands, driving through the picturesque "Midsomer" villages, to visiting Tring Zoological museum, swooping down the real snow in Milton Keynes Snozone, or playing Top Golf in Watford. All within 30/40 minutes of the farm. We are also close to the Grand Union Canal which stretches from London to Birmingham and which offers leisurely walks and boat hire. We are also only around an hour from Stratford on Avon, a little further to Oxford and Cambridge, and is a good basis for sightseeing.

What a fabulous place!
We booked the Homestead for a group of friends we had visiting from different parts of the country, communications could not have been better and Town Farm made sure that directions of how to find them plus information for arrival and entry were clear and easy to follow. The cottage itself was spacious clean and welcoming, the views were fabulous and walking with the dogs straight from the site was a real bonus. You can walk straight out to the countryside or down to the village (Nice pub) without having to use the road. No need to use the car at all if you don't want to. Staff all very polite and helpful but not overbearing, just there when you need them. Our friends loved the place and said they would love to come again when they had more time to explore.
Good location and environment
The only thing I would suggest is more kitchen cleaning equipment such as a brilo pad, glass stove cleaner etc. Otherwise an enjoyable time.
Thank you for letting us know about the cleaning items - we appreciate you taking the time to review so we can improve our guests' comfort during their stay. We hope we can welcome you back to Town Farm soon.

The Homestead is a brilliant family property in a very good location. We all had a brilliant time and Town farm is ideal for the family dog!
We were very happy with The Homestead and enjoyed our stay. It was very clean and comfortable except for mattress in
Perfect base for visiting our family. Any issues promptly dealt with by Angie, great for the children, we would love to return.
Ideal country holiday
The accommodation was easily one of the best we have experienced. Comfortable beds, a very well equipped kitchen, lots of family space for six of us and super bathrooms all in such a gorgeous setting. The information file including house details and local points of interest was a nice touch and the very helpful staff were responsive to our individual needs. Our youngest members loved the playground.
The location is convenient for drives to local points of interest and walks to Ivinghoe for pubs and other amenities.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
Town Farm is is in a good central location, with easy access to motorways and public transport. Although we are in the middle of the countryside, we are around a ten minute drive to Leighton Buzzard or Tring, both of which have shopping and railway stations. Aylesbury, Hemel Hempstead and Milton Keynes are also nearby.
London is around 40 minutes by train from Tring, and there is a wealth of things to do in the area, from visiting National Trust properties, to wandering through beautiful bluebell woods and skiing in the Snozone in Milton Keynes! The Warner Bros Studio tour with the making of Harry Potter is only a 30 minute drive.
We provide information folders in each property, with local supermarket locations, places to eat and visit.
