With its own private swimming pool (heated from May to September) and a year round outdoor hot tub jacuzzi spa, you are surrounded by acres of green pastureland paddocks and our 1 acre carp and coarse fishing lake. Our self-catering chalet is the perfect setting for those who want to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

For birdwatchers, our fishing lake is surrounded by trees and is the home to red kites, kingfishers, sparrow hawks, woodpeckers, buzzards, kestrels, ducks, moor hens, pheasants and some very friendly robins and wrens. In the evening you are like to see foxes, badgers, rabbits and munt jack. With two public footpaths running through the farm, walkers and cyclists can quickly and easily get on to the Phoenix trail and The Ridgeway, with miles upon miles of footpaths and bridleways to explore.

About the neighbourhood
Henton is a quite hamlet on the outskirts of Chinnor and is set within The Chilterns, an Area of Natural beauty. The closet local shops are in Chinnor (1.5 miles) and Princes Risborough (4 miles). The nearest main shopping centres are Aylesbury (10 miles), High Wycombe (12 miles), Oxford (23 miles) and Bicester Village (26 miles). Henton is home to the Peacock Country Inn which is highly recommended for our guests looking to dine out and is a 8 minute walk from the farm.
Getting around
The best way to explore the area is by car as it will provide you with the greatest flexibility and convenience. However, many guests arrive by Taxi from Princes Risborugh train station (4 miles away). Those guests tend to enjoy walking and are happy to relax and enjoy the facilities on the farm including the fishing lake, pool and hot tub. Many also like to go out exploring on foot taking in some great walks in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. Plus our friendly local, The Peacock Country Inn is also only a short walk from the farm.
