    "If you’re after a first class high quality holiday base look no further, this is the cottage for you. The owner has created two very private outdoors area for you to enjoy with uninterrupted views over open fields. Very secure paddock kept our Houdini of a dog contained. There are walks all around you. In the Cottage lots of little extras ( to numerous to mention) and very clever interior design with off angle walls makes the spaces interesting and enjoyable. No dark corners, light and airy with open beams. The nearby village of Towcester has a range of restaurants, pubs and even a newly opened supermarket giant. Plenty to do in the area and you can easily slip back into the fast road network from this rural retreat. Total gem .... book it now before it goes. Nothing is too much trouble for the owner, they are around if you want them , very non intrusive if you don’t. Very welcoming."

    "Very enjoyable and comfortable"
    Donna ‐ 9 May 2019
    "Lovely, spacious, clean and comfortable with private garden. Situated at the edge of the village, very peaceful. Extremely helpful and pleasant owners live next door. Lovely tea time welcome pack including biscuits was a lovely touch. Love the open plan, living, dining and kitchen area. The quirky shaped bedrooms are delightful. The whole cottage is flooded with natural light and the interior stonewalls are highlighted with multiple lighting options as evening falls. Would recommend a hand rail is fitted in ensuite to assist with getting in/out of elevated shower cubicles. Personal opinion, I would prefer to have a dishwasher instead of a washing machine. Would highly recommend and will definitely stay here again."

    "Friendly and helpful hosts, lovely setting, well equipped, spacious but homely, great showers!"
    Pam ‐ 23 Mar 2019
    "A very pleasant and peaceful spot, outlook is open fields to the rear of the cottage. Location excellent for the Northampton area; Silverstone nearby and Bletchley Park about half an hour away.Tea, coffee, washing up equipment and kitchen roll all supplied. Adequate crockery, cutlery and cooking pots etc. Owners also left a welcome pack of biscuits.Kitchen/ sitting room could do with a few extra lights and the central heating controls a little difficult to work out. Also the shower cubicles had quite a high step up so may not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues.Overall a lovely place to stay to explore a nice area of England."

    "The Granary Barn is quite with country side views, dog friendly and with access to part of a field for exercising it."
    Sue ‐ 26 Oct 2018
    "Granary Cottage was very well equipped, even having a selection of DVDs, CDs , books& jigsaws. The owners, John & Jean were very helpful giving local info, eating recommendations & always on hand if needed. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Towcester is just a sort drive away with supermarkets & a good selection of pubs. We would definitely stay there again."
    Les ‐ 23 Oct 2018
    "The owners were very friendly and made us very welcome. Milk, biscuits etc. were provided on arrival. We would certainly stay there again.The Granary Barn is right on the edge of Towcester and easily accessible from the A43 but the A5 in Towcester was being resurfaced which meant the centre of town was not accessible. The town appears to be doubling in size with new developments but the barn overlooks fields for some miles."
