I couldn't rate the experience higher. 11 out of 10. Bill and Yvonne were both very friendly and welcoming, and even went out of their way to help out when I'd a minor emergency. They'd lots of great local knowledge and were happy to sit and chat without being intrusive. The house itself is very spacious with pristine, well-sized rooms and the bathrooms are spotless. They laid on a great spread at breakfast and the rooms had space to relax and TV's if required. Great wi-fi too. If you get a chance go for a stroll on the lake the house backs onto.
Lovely place to stay, with great view of nearby lake and easy access to walk around the lake. Yvonne and Bill were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, and generous with sharing information about MK for a new arrival/visitor. Fun, knowledgable and kind people, who were happy to chat, but also gave you privacy. I'm so pleased I stayed here and thoroughly recommend it. Very comfortable room, listing was accurate, neighbourhood nice.
Bill And Yvonne were excellent hosts to me. They are both friendly and respectful of privacy. Breakfast and fresh coffee was available every morning which ensured my days started out right. The bed was comfortable and the room had a very scenic view of the lake. The neighborhood is fantastic and very quiet. Right along the lake for walks. They got used to me being around after a very short time. I would absolutely come back and stay here again.
Bill and Yvonne were both charming and very welcoming. The room I had was perfect with nice views over the garden and the lake. The area is quiet and fairly close to the centre of Milton Keynes so perfect for me. I would thoroughly recommend Bill and Yvonne and their rooms to anyone
I had a lovely time staying with Yvonne and Bill for a few days whilst working at the theatre in Milton Keynes. They were very friendly and helpful. Lovely warm house with views over the lake. I felt very relaxed and calm! Would definitely recommend and will hopefully return! Thanks!
This is a great place to relax. I stayed only for a couple of days and I am very happy with their hospitality. The room was spacious and comfortable. Loved the stay.
Yvonne and Billy are super hosts! The accomodation is lovely and really good located next to a lake and you need around 10 minutes to bus and supermarket.
I think you cannot find a better accomodation and hosts as well :)
Yvonne und Billy sind super freundliche Gastgeber! Die Unterkunft ist sehr schön und gut gelegen, direkt an einen See, Bus und Supermarkt sind nur ca. 10 Minuten entfernt. Man kann kaum eine bessere Unterkunft mit solch guten Gastgebern finden.

About the Host, Bill And Yvonne
I am married to Bill with 2 grown up children. They have gone off now to set up homes of their own and have left me with empty bedrooms.
The house is far too quiet without them, so occasional visitors here helps me not miss them too much
We have our own small business putting plants into offices and have been in Milton Keynes for over 20 years. We both work from home so the kettle is always on
Milton Keynes is great, we love living here, and are look forward to sharing our home with you. We will do our best to make you welcome
We also love to travel and we have hosted many travellers from all over the world. The great thing about hosting guests from airbnb is that the world comes to visit us when we can't get away to holiday
I enjoy cooking, socialising, cycling and gardening and the house is very green inside and out.
Our home is slowly becoming fully ECO with solar panels, heat source pump and recycling as much as possible.
Great venue for all sorts of entertainment.
