About the property

House in Olney, Buckinghamshire, England - Market Town Location, 5 Minutes Walk To 12 Restaurants

Originally owned by the Earl of Dartmouth and situated in the Georgian market town of Olney, there are records dating back to 1745. A spacious and comfortable, stone built property, it can sleep up to 13 people. Olney is one of the most sought after destinations in North Buckinghamshire, located in the middle of England. The house is handily set along a main road just 20 mins from junction 14 of the M1 making London very accessible. Olney itself has tearooms, restaurants, pubs, antique shops, boutiques & the William and Cowper Museum - all are within easy walking distance of the property. A few minutes drive leads to Woburn Abbey, Castle Ashby and Bletchley Park. There is plenty to keep the children entertained from Gullivers World to Whipsnade Zoo.
