Lovely greeting upon arrival with a tour of the house followed by a much appreciated cup of tea and a chat downstairs. My room had an amazing view of the lake. House is in a lovely peaceful location. Bed is very comfy, and so is the chair that allows you to while away the hours watching the wildlife on and around the lake. Yvonne and Bill are excellent hosts and you feel relaxed and at home immediately. Can't wait to stay here again and hope that by putting this review on I am not doing myself out of a place to stay next time I am visiting Milton Keynes!!
Another pleasant stay with great hosts.
I stayed with Bill and Yvonne for 2 nights, which was my first AirBnB experience. They could not have been more welcoming and accommodating, from arrival times to using their kitchen. They were very friendly and made the whole experience very comfortable. The house was lovely, really clean and had a nice comfy bed. It is in a nice neighbourhood with excellent views and I would have loved more time to explore the lake behind the house.
I would definitely stay again!
I very much enjoyed staying with Bill and Yvonne. They made me feel very welcome and have created a really nice room to relax in. The bed is super comfortable and the whole atmosphere just felt peaceful. I would stay there again if I needed to travel to the area again. Thank you!
Yvonne and Billy were wonderful hosts to our family. The beds were comfortable, the view of the gardens below made me jealous, and it was very quiet. We had a nice meal in a local 700 y.o. pub we would have never found on our own that they recommended. They are both some of the nicest people I have met, and I would recommend a stay, to anyone headed in their direction. We arrived strangers and left friends!
This was my first experience with airbnb and what a delightful one it was. Bill and Yvonne were such welcoming hosts and made me feel very at home. The room was perfectly clean and tranquil and I had everything I needed. I would certainly visit again.
we stayed at the place for two days and I wish we could stay longer. =)
Bill And Yvonne were amazing host. I have been traveling around the world using airbnb and I can honestly say this has been the best stay so far. Really the hospitality, the atmosphere, not to mention the amazing house and backyard, made our trip unforgettable. Thanks again to 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.
