About This Listing
The bungalow is attached to the house shown in the photograph above and was designed and built in 1981, to an extent by ourselves, on the site of the village Wheelwrights workshop. It is of modern construction and is completely self-contained. We reside in the house and are available if assistance is required. As we are resident, guidance and security is enhanced.
The bungalow is situated on the left side of the arched entrance and is centrally heated with radiators in all rooms and comprises a Living/Dining Room, a spacious Bedroom with a comfortable double bed and generous wardrobe space. The Bathroom and facilities are adjacent to the Bedroom and there is a bath and a separate shower cubicle. The Kitchen as illustrated is fully fitted. There is also a small Study/Den where, if required, a third person could be accommodated on a put-you-up bed.
Pury End is a quiet village located in typical Northamptonshire countryside of gentle hills, fields and farmland. It’s main claim to fame is for being the birthplace, in 1761, of William Carey (the famous Baptist missionary) and it is also the home of the international headquarters of the Rolls Royce Enthusiasts’ Club.
Close to home are many attractions, the most famous of which are the Silverstone motor racing circuit, home to the British F1 Grand Prix and Towcester Racecourse which is a Horse racing course, Greyhound track, Conference centre and Wedding and events Venue. Nearby sporting venues include a number of golf courses, Franklin Gardens, the home of Northampton Saints rugby club, and Stadium MK, the home of MK Dons football club and also a venue for the 2015 rugby world cup. Althorp, the once family home of Diana, Princess of Wales is a short distance away.
Although local buses serve the village and provide access to Milton Keynes, Northampton and Oxford it is essential to have your own transport to be able to explore the surrounding area. We are centrally situated between London and Birmingham (north to south) and between Oxford and Cambridge (east to west) and all these places can be reached in about one hour. London can also be reached by train in about 30 minutes from Milton Keynes Central Station which is about a 20 minute drive away.

This is an exceptional cottage with very nice and helpful hosts. It contains absolutely everything to make an enjoyable home away from home. I particularly enjoyed the beautiful garden and hope to see it again in the summer. The location is very quite and convenient to Milton Keynes and the surrounding area. I highly recommend it.
We had a wonderful comfortable stay. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and shown around the accommodation. It was a perfect spot for us to enjoy our Silverstone F1 weekend and our Anniversary. Thanks
It was such a pleasure staying in the bungalow. As soon as we arrived we felt completely at home. The bungalow is filled with personal items that give it a very homely feel. Everything we needed was there. The garden is something else. It is an absolute joy to sit at the back in the sunshine.
Zena and Richard are wonderful hosts. They made us feel completely welcome from the outset with special touches such as information about the local area, and a welcome pack to get us going for breakfast with bread, fruit, tea, coffee and biscuits.
Pury End is a lovely village, and well located for visiting Silverstone, Milton Keynes, Donington, Oxford, the Cotswolds, and of course the local area including Towcester. This is a wonderful part of England.
About the Host, Zena
I am of Indian origin and spent my youth living and traveling between India and Africa. Together with my family we settled in the United Kingdom in the 1960’s where I met and married my English husband.
As both our careers were associated with the construction industry our ambition to design and build our own home was achieved and this is where we reside.
We have now retired from our careers and keep very fit and active and share many interests which include adventure travels. We also enjoy meeting people and understanding other cultures, entertaining, gardening, theatre, music, reading ----- the list goes on.
