About the property

Cottages in Towcester, Northampton, Northamptonshire, England - Situated Close To Towcester Racecourse, Silverstone Race Circuit, Milton Keynes And Northampton

The Tove Valley Cottages have been created by sympathetically converting a former Victorian model farm, which had become redundant from modern farming practices. The aim of Tove Valley Cottages is to create a good quality and environmentally respectful holiday destination within the heart of the UK. We have implemented a biomass heating system for all the cottages, which uses timber harvested from our sustainable farm woodlands. All the cottages are fitted with the latest low energy appliances to help keep our carbon footprint to a minimum. Where possible we have retained many original features and use reclaimed materials to provide an authentic feel, the limestone used has been quarried off the farm and each stone cut and shaped using hand tools and a small hydraulic stone chopper. With easy access to the A5, M1 and M40 this location is ideal for exploring the surrounding area. Milton Keynes and Northampton are only 20 minutes away, Banbury 30 minutes, Oxford, Stratford upon Avon and the Cotswolds all within an hour, you won't need to travel this far if you didn't want to though. There is literature provided with an abundance of things to do and see in the surrounding area. We offer free unlimited internet access, bluetooth media music system, a small welcome pack on your arrival and bed linen and towels. There are various public footpaths around the farm, if you require some fresh air, but the cottages are very spacious with comfortable furniture so as to allow yourself some time to also sit down and relax. We have permitted 3 of the properties to be pet friendly, this includes, Weasels Way, though strict rules apply, please ask for a copy of this on enquiry.

  • Notes on accommodation: “We wish you a genuinely heart warming visit to Tove Valley.” The Tove Valley Farm is a working farm, and though we will do our utmost not to disturb your stay, please be mindful that currently there will be remedial work and farm machinery movements. Outside: The cottages have courtyards available to them, which include seating areas and barbecue facilities, brick paved paths lead to the cottage doors, off white stone patio and lawn areas. To the front of the cottages is a large pond with a grass perimeter and a small paddock that houses an abundance of wildlife. At the farm house 2 miles away there's a tennis court which can be made available for hire, though prior arrangements will have to be made. The farm has a number of large pools and the River Tove meandering through it, fishing permits and starter fishing kits can be purchased if you would like to use this facility, rod licenses can be obtained online, we can help you with this if necessary. There is a network of public footpaths across surrounding farm land and an array of cycle routes through the county for you to discover, if you would like to hire bicycles then this can be arranged.
