Yvonne en Bill are a nice, cheerful couple who gave us a very warm welcome in their house. We could use everything we needed, included good bikes to cycle in the really beautiful and always surprising environment. Good advises, tips, interest, helping hands in thinking how to manage, extensive choice in breakfast, home-made cake, good beds to sleep and a beautiful garden.... it was really a lovely place to be!
Un super séjour ! Bill et Yvonne ont été très agréables et accueillants, spécialement avec nos enfants !
La maison est jolie et confortable, le jardin superbe (plein de fleurs !). La chambre est jolie et spacieuse (assez pour 2 adultes et 2 enfants), la salle de bains très bien.
Le quartier est calme, avec magasin et restos à proximité.
Nous vous recommandons ce B&B !
Very warm welcome ! Bill & Yvonne are very nice, they loved our kids and our kids loved them !
The house is very nice, with a wonderful garden (so many flowers !!!). The bedroom is nice and big enough for 2 adults and 2 kids, the bathroom is fine.
The neighbourhood is quiet, with shops and restaurants at a 5-minute walking distance.
We had a very good stay !!!
I was made to feel very welcome. The house and garden were very nice. Nearby was a circular lakeside walk which was very peaceful. Good access to major routes and A roads. Room was very comfortable. Nice bathroom with power shower.
Bill and Yvonne made me feel so welcome in their home - they invited me to use all the communal facilities and I didn't feel out of place doing so! The room was absolutely gorgeous along with the rest of the house which will airy, modern and so very clean! And an absolutely beautiful garden which was perfect to sit in during the warm weather we had whilst I was there. Bill and Yvonne were fantastic at giving me local advice as I was new to the area and had a host of knowledge which will help me in Milton Keynes. The breakfast offered every morning was more than great as there was always different things to eat and very generous is selection! I can't recommend these hosts and their rooms enough 10/10.
We were very warmly received by the host, and were made absolutely comfortable during the entire period of our stay. This was my best experience staying with the host in one house, which was made fun, relaxed and altogether enjoyable by their hospitality and sensibility. I recommend this place to anyone without any reservation.
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.

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.
