We stayed in a two bedroom cottage. 4 adults and one baby. Room sizes were generous (both) and the owners accommodated for our request to make the twin room into a super king. The down stairs living and kitchen was more than ample for our needs and things such as washing up liquid/clothes/dishwasher tablets etc were all provided. We were late arriving on the Friday evening and again this was accommodated for with no issues. The cottage was clean, tidy, had everything we needed and more and set in a beautiful location.There is also a lovely pub over the road which provided a delicious breakfast to go.We will most definitely return when we are back visiting our friends in the local area.Thank you very much for such a lovely stay!

We'd hunted online for somewhere to stay on a particularly busy weekend for the local area (we attended an all day dance carnival for example) and this outshone all others based on location, ease of access, price and customer service. The Navigation Inn across the road was great too, as were the fresh duck eggs collected from the farm next door. Will definitely be booking again for next year. Thank you!

I stayed in an apartment during the week over a period of 7 months. The apartments were equipped to meet my needs and were comfy and always clean. Lucy was flexible in meeting my changing needs due to business commitments and the only thing that spoiled it was nothing to do with her - someone who stayed during a weekend selfishly smoked in the bathroom because it was raining outside, despite being told it was no smoking.
Thanks again Simon, and I can only apologies again for the selfish smokers!Having washed the bathroom walls/ceiling and floor religiously for the last few months I think we have managed to extinguish the smell. We are also considering constructing a smokers shed which we will be looking to construct this summer

I can honestly say this was the best self catering accommodation I have ever stayed in. The studio was beautifully decorated and had it's own bathroom and kitchen with everything you need. Lucy the owner is extremely friendly and welcoming and is happy to leave you to settle at your own pace.

Very we'll appointed chalet. Clean and attractiveFriendly and helpful staff. Disappointingly we couldn't get anything from the televisionbut there was a good connection for my iPhone and we used that to listen to the radio. The toaster set off the smoke alarm even though the toast wasn't burned. Is it possible to make it a little less sensitive? We really enjoyed our short stay.Anne Aldis

This is our second visit. This is a brilliant place to stay, clean, modern, relaxing, accommodating owners and in very close proximity to Silverstone;and on return, to the Navigation Inn pub over the road serving delicious food and real ale after a hard day watching F1!What more do you require? Sun. Yes we were lucky to have that too this year!

My fourth (or is it fifth ?) visit to Elm Tree Farm and it gets nicer on each occasion.Clean, comfortable room, good breakfasts and ample parking.What else could any one ask for.Next year, I shall make sure that I miss the Irish fiddle band.Not my personal choice of entertainment at all.
Reviewer:Colin B | Fri 5th Jul 2013 | 6 years ago
Wonderful stay in tranquil and pleasant surroundings and a relatively short drive to the centre of Milton Keynes.Well recommended if you're on business or just fancy a short break to get away from it all.Lucy and Merv were good hosts and went out their way to accommodate you.

Reviewer:Caroline R | Sun 9th Jun 2013 | 6 years ago
The accommodation at Elm Tree Farm was just what I needed. There was a modern good sized room with a comfortable bed and just the right amount of furniture and storage space for a week long visit. The cooking facilities were just right without being intrusive and it was useful to have such a large fridge and a good selection of crockery, cutlery and utensils. The location is quiet without being remote, set in the pleasant Northamptonshire countryside. I would have no hesitation in recommending Elm Tree Farm to anyone wanting to stay in the area.
Reviewer:Mr. Toby L | Thu 6th Jun 2013 | 6 years ago
I was taking part in the Matt Hampson FOundation charity walk. Needed bed, bath food and some company. Got it!Top people, lovely place and great food.Lucy really makes you feel like one of the family if you like that or gives you space if you prefer to be a little remote.Thoroughly recommended.
Reviewer:John H | Tue 28th May 2013 | 6 years ago
We were very pleasantly surprised by just how lovely the holiday house was. It was clean, modern and very family friendly. We arrived rather late in the evening and were met with a very friendly welcome, upon entering the house we found it to be spacious, clean and to our surprise we noticed there were even a few toys and book for our children to play with.A handy little starter pack was provided which included some dishwasher tablets, cloths, washing liquid, soap and bin liners.I was so happy with our stay and we will definitely stay here again the next time we are down visiting the family.
Really pleased after a long drive you were happy with the Cottage, Thanks Lucy

I had a great time in Elm Tree Farm, lovely accomodation,quiet, clean 10/10 . Friendly environment. For sure I'd come back again.
Reviewer:Harriet T | Fri 8th Feb 2013 | 6 years ago
The accommodation is great;neat, new, fresh and spacious – I stayed in the one bedroom unit for six weeks. The area is quiet and peaceful and should one prefer not to attend to one’s own meals, one can hop over the road to the country pub for a meal … food was okay. Internet was a problem for the first two weeks but the proprietors went out of their way to ensure that it was fixed and in fact, as I was leaving, a total upgrade was underway. For me, it would have been great if they offered more than just a weekly rate i.e. a long-stay rate. Should I come back to the UK for business, I would surely like to stay at Elm Tree again.

We spent a week at the farm with our 7 year old son visiting family nearby.The accommodation was recently built, bright, spacious, spotlessly clean and had a well equipped kitchen.The hosts were charming, helpful and made us feel very welcome.The farm is located in a beautiful part of the country next to the canal and we had wonderful walks along the towpath to see the boats aqueduct and lock.Highly recommended.

Reviewer:Paul W | Wed 17th Oct 2012 | 6 years ago
This wonderful little place is a gem to stay at. A central location, yet on the main roads, so you can enjoy the peace of the countryside. They are barn conversions which have been done to a lovely standard, modern bright, warm and everything you need for a self catering stay is provided. Lucy and family are lovely warm people who meet you with a smile and will help in any way they can to make your stay enjoyable.It is a working farm with cattle so the odd 'Mooo' can be heard - but only if you have the windows open...We were racing at Silverstone (15 mins away) which can be very full on, so for me it was great to have a peaceful place to de-stress.
Reviewer:Gill L | Tue 9th Oct 2012 | 6 years ago

A very welcoming and well run B&B;reasonably priced, and with well behaved dogs. Nice area (opposite pub) and a very good stay overall, no noise during later hours and a great slap-up breakfast in the morning. Quite convenient for visitors to Silverstone weekend events since the farm is within 8 miles of the circuit. I Would consider staying there again and reccommend this place to anyone wishing to stay there.
Reviewer:Mike P | Fri 27th Jul 2012 | 6 years ago
We based our main summer holiday around the Silverstone Grand Prix weekend and found the location excellent for both this and visits to Milton Keynes and beyond. The accommodation had everything we needed, it was spacious and clean and the kids (teenagers) made themselves right at home. The wifi meant that everyone was able to chat to friends and email so the separation anxiety was not too severe. We traveled into London a few times also – London Midland were doing a great deal for 3 or 4 people traveling together – parked at Milton Keynes and took the train from there. I would definitely recommend Elm Tree Farm as a great place to stay, in particular for anyone going to an event at Silverstone.
Reviewer:Conor M | Mon 23rd Jul 2012 | 6 years ago
We stayed at Elm Tree when attending a wedding near by and it was wonderful! A beautiful location and very personal, home from home service. Fabulous breakfast! My only criticism would be that the rooms are very small, but are very reasonably priced, clean and comfortable, would highly recommend!

My friends and i have just returned from a fantastic weekend trip staying at Elm Tree Farm. We were greeted at the gate and shown the accomodation which was of a very high standard. The rooms were well fitted out with modern furniture and fittings and very clean. The owners, Lucy and Merv, were very friendly and helpful with local information and recommended local cabs for our trip to Milton Keynes Bowl which proved also to be a great service. We had a fantastic weekend here and would hightly recommend it.
Reviewer:Dan H | Mon 16th Jul 2012 | 7 years ago
A warm and relaxed welcome from Lucy on arrival. Clean, bright modern studio we felt like it was our own. Nice double shower and plenty of space to relax and unwind each night. Everything that we wanted. Friends arrived a few days later staying in the other accomodation, great location for parties and large groups but also private from other people staying. We had booked the accomadation for the Sweedish House Mafia Concert in Milton Keynes. Weather was un predicable but great outside communal area for breakfast and BBQ's. I Really enjoyed my stay. I would definatly recomend Elm Tree Farm to anyone else, and I would definatly come back and stay if I needed accomodation within that area.
Reviewer:Ms Bridget F | Sun 15th Jul 2012 | 7 years ago
Stayed here for the British Grand Prix in July 2012 as a group of 4 adults.Great accommodation in a superb location with easy access to the circuit - approx 15-20mins drive (slightlty longer for race day delays though).Accommodation was clean, tidy and spacious - plenty of room for 4 adults for the weekend.We did spend most of our time at Silverstone but did manage to eat at:The Navigation Inn - 30 seconds WALK away - nice beer and standard pub grub, but very handy as it is within walking distance.The White Hart, Grafton Regis - 10mins drive. Great pub food and ales on tap - worth a visit if you have a driver in your party.Royal Thai Restaurant, Stony Stratford - had a takeaway from here which we ordered and collected (10% discount for collection and again less than 10mins drive away. Food was very nice, tasty and just what we needed after spending a day at the circuit getting soaked right through.All in all a very pleasant stay, central location and lovely hosts- cant wait to return next year - lets hope the weather improves this time though !!
Reviewer:Michaela H | Mon 9th Jul 2012 | 7 years ago
Good self catering accommodation can be difficult to find and coming across Elm Tree Farm was a godsend.The eight units are beautifully and thoughtfully designed to suit all different needs.Fresh eggs on tap, a handy herb garden outside your door, all the basic equipment you'll need, comfy beds and a very warm welcome - one couldn't ask for more. Looking forward to next time.

We had booked in at The Elm Tree Farm for the Saturday night to be greeted as we arrived by lovely sunshine weather and an IMMACULATE looking location (right opposite a pub lol)We were greeted by Merv which introduced himself and showed us to our room along with a guided tour of the building we were staying in. Room was so clean and spacious and bathroom was stunning with a lovley view of the canal and pub opposite. Breakfast in the morning was a full english which was cooked to PERFECTION :) and thats where we met lucy who we had a chat with and was so pleasent friendly and was just an amazing experience.If we are to return next year to Silverstone Race circuit in the near future or in the future for anything within the area or for a break i would highly recommend this accomadtion and would return within a flash.Thank you to Lucy and Merv fantastic people and what an amazing experience.Emilio and Vicky

Elm Tree Farm is half way between London and Birmingham on the Grand Union Canal - ideal if you are cycling the route as we were.

Excellent accomodation and facilities in a relaxing rurual location.Being ultra "picky"our only gripe would be the state of the crockery and cutlery when we arrived.It was all dirty with a greasy film (possibly due to being put in the dishwasher without a tablet or on the wrong setting).This was a bit off putting but fine after we washed it all.
We appreciate the constructive advice, we will make sure it does not happen again....I have a thing about grubby cutlery so it is inexcusable!Glad you enjoyed your stay, and well done with the 1/2 marathon time

Thanks Lucy and Merv for creating very comfortable self catering accommodation. After 3 visits in 6 weeks, I can highly recommend them as a great alternative to bed and breakfast when travelling on business. The short stay studios are well equipped, warm and comfortable with a good shower. The location is great - out in the country with canal walks close by. There is a pub opposite but I didn't use it as the kitchen area was well equipped and I was able to prepare my own meals. I look forward to my next opportunity to visit.

Elm Tree Farm Accommodation was excellent on the whole.It is new and clearly still being worked upon.The cottage we stayed in was well decorated, large and had excellent facilities.There were a couple of things which might help:large bath towels and oven gloves - but these are minor points.Great value for money.

We stayed in the two bedroom cottage for two nights in August on a self catering basis. I can't praise the place enough. It was beautifully presented and more than big enough to accommodate the six people it is designed for. Although we didn't do any cooking just looking through the cupboards was good enough to know they have every imaginable piece of equipment to cook a banquet. The beds very so comfortable that a good nights sleep is guaranteed. What was lovely was waking up to the sounds of Daisy the cow (thats what we nicknamed her) and the sound of the geese and ducks. If visiting this area again we will definately stay here.

I was in the short stay studio during the Silverstone Classic weekend. The accomodation is very good, nice and quiet studio (exept for the ticking of the clock) situated in the countryside. Lucy's English breakfast is perfect, I did enjoy it very much. Pub opposite the street:very convienient for a last drink. Surely like to come again, thanks.

This turned out to be a great online find for a B&B stopover as part of a canal cycling holiday.It was clean, comfortable, very friendly and conveniently positioned on rge canal side opposite a great pub and restaurant. Breakfast was great in the morning and we went on our way with a cheery goodbye.I would definately recommend Elm Tree Farm and would look to staying there again if we need accommodation in the area.Thanks!

If you are looking for somewhere that is friendly yet private, has it's own facilities as well as everything else you might want nearby in a beautiful setting, book Elm Tree Farm.It was great for me as I like to stay somewhere that is a private space as well as a comfortable home from home rather than a sterile hotel. The friendly, welcoming and helpful family that is nearby if you need anything made it even better.The amazing price topped it off!The only thing I could have improved was that the Internet wasn't working whilst I was there but they've only just opened the new rooms and BT haven't done there stuff on time.

Arrived to be offered chance of trying out new holiday cottages which had only just been completed. Breakfast hamper provided to start us off which suited us fine and being in cottages allowed freedom to come and go at our convenience without disturbing other guests. Would gladly book to stay again when next at Grand prix.

We had a really pleasant stay and Lucy was amazingly helpful with a laptop that needed returning the following day;well above the usual call of B &B duty!!
Reviewer:Dr S | Mon 18th Jul 2011 | 8 years ago

A great fiplace to stay - spotlessly cleam, well appointed, very friendly owners and good value for money.The location is excellent too in lovely surroundings, but handy for M1 and Milton Keynes.Any negatives...no!
Reviewer:Mr. Declan A | Thu 14th Jul 2011 | 8 years ago
What a great location we found by chance only 20 mins from Silverstone and so easy to reach.We stayed in the modern self catering cottagesfitted with all facilities sited within thenewly built development on the site of a working farm. Together with the fact that it is positioned opposite a pub that sits adjacent to the Grand Union Canal, serving the most fantastic food with real ale we could not have done better. Definitely stay again. Thanks Lucy.
Reviewer:Mike W | Tue 12th Jul 2011 | 8 years ago
We were booked into the house on a B&B basis but got upgraded to the new self catering units. These were really lovely well thought out accommodation. We were even given breakfast hamper too which was nice. Only thing I missed was the cooked breakfast... But as we had to be out early for Silverstone we probably wouldn't have had time for it anyway.
Reviewer:Katerina B | Mon 11th Jul 2011 | 8 years ago
Accomodation modern and very nice. Well positioned for Silverstone Race Track and had excellent facilities near by.

This place is a little gem...Lucy the owner can't do enough for you, breakfast is amazing, room nice clean and large...Also have a few animals on site which are sure to make you smile !! Brilliant pub over road on the canal serves great food and most importantly great ale. Would defiantly stay again
Thanks Paul, I am really please you enjoyed your stay, Lucy
Reviewer:Paul S | Mon 11th Jul 2011 | 8 years ago
An absolutely fantastic place. The accommodation was excellent. Lovely walks on the canal and the pub across the road serves great food. I just like to thank Lucy for her friendly hospitality and also arranging a taxi for us to the MK Bowl. A relaxing atmosphere in a tranquil part of Milton Keynes. I certainly will recommend this place to stay for both long and short stay breaks!Mark &Rachael

We stayed in 2 of the self serviced apartments on the weekend of the foo fighters gigs and although they had only just been finished they where both ship shape and tidy. We had a warm welcome on our arrival and where shown round our accommodation which is all very nicely finished with everything you need for your break, including cooking facilities and tv. Lucy even organised some taxi's to take her guests to and from the gig which was much appreciated. There is a pub across the road on the banks on the grand union canal which serves food and a small shop 5 minutes away. Thanks for your hospitality we would definitely stay again. :)
Reviewer:Mike B | Mon 4th Jul 2011 | 8 years ago
Travelling in advance of a contract locally. A warm welcome from the owner Lucy. The room was a twin bed ready made up and well decorated with digital TV, wifi, en suite bath and loo, very comfortable.Breakfast made to order (full English) cooked as I like it.An excellent experience, highly recommended.
Thanks for your review.I hope the interview went well and in antisipation of a positive result, hope to be seeing you again soon.Lucy
