Hotel Description

Lucy and Merv' invite you to take some time out in the country with its fresh air and wonderful open spaces can be one of the finest ways to get away and relax, especially if you haven't tried it before. Dovetail this to gloriously comfortable, modern accommodation and you have yourself a perfect weekend getaway working away from home or extended holiday. Well, if this really is the sort of break you've been dreaming of then Elm Tree Farm has a range of places that will perfectly suit your valuable time away. Whether it's just a night away from home, a weekend trip with friends or maybe taking a week away with the family, Nestled on the edge of the Tove Valley in the Northamptonshire countryside, we're close enough to take advantage of Milton Keynes Shopping Center and all its conveniences whilst far enough away from it to be able to relax and enjoy the slow country life. Just down the road is the home of British motor racing, Silverstone, with its packed schedule of events, whilst the pace is somewhat reduced around the corner as we sit next to the Grand Union canal in our rolling fields. A short stride across the road is our wonderful local pub, the Navigation Inn is a classic country pub and has been the location for many late night meetings for cycling and walking enthusiasts planning their next days jaunt.

We booked 4 nights at Elm Tree Farm, and had an amazing time. The accommodation was everything you would expect from the photo's and more, the setting is amazing and importantly safe for the children (9 and 10) to play outside in the gardens. The Accom was clean, comfortable and although we only met Lucy, she was lovely to speak with and gave amazing service. I would recommend Elm Tree 100%

Just Perfect
I recently stayed in one of the Studio Apartments. The accommodation was clean and very spacious. The shower in the Ensuite was large, powerful and with an endless supply of hot water. Everything I find essential. The location is also very peaceful. But do bear in mind it is a farm. I am an early riser so the fact that I was woken by a Cockerel at approx 4am every morning was not too much of an issue. It may be for some. Otherwise, highly recommended.

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.

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.

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.

Very Pleasant Place To Stay
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.

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.

A Gem Of A Stay
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.

Elm Tree Farm
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.

Superb Stay !!!
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 !!

Elm Tree Farm Accommodation
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.

An excellent place to stay with superb accommodation in the newly built cottages. All the amenities in the cottage were excellent. Lucy was very friendly and gave us some great tips for places to stay and walks. We would definitely stay again and would recommend this. Many thanks!

Excellent Stay
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.

Silverstone Classic
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.

Canal Cycling Break
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!

A Real Gem
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.

Grand Prix
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.

One Of The Best I Have Stayed In!
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!

Ideal For The Grand Prix At Silverstone Circuit
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 cottages fitted with all facilities sited within the newly 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.

Excellent Stay
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.

Short Stay Break
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!

Serviced Apartments
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. :)

Visitors often remark on how different Milton Keynes is when they see our tree-lined boulevards, a clean, green environment and clean-cut modern buildings. The town has so much to offer with one of the biggest shopping centres in the country, an indoor ski slope with "real" snow and the most successful theatre outside the West End. The nearby Theatre District offers a wide variety of eateries and clubs and there are leisure and sporting facilities to suit just about everyone. The area is also chock full of history. Milton Keynes' wonderful parks and waterways provide a landscape and environment many towns and cities would envy.
