Brand new single room B&B in the relaxing English countryside Jul 03, 2010
This brand new Bed & Breakfast in the English countryside fit our needs perfectly for attending a 50th birthday party in local area—the owners even volunteered to drive us to the party at an old English farmhouse in Loosley Row near Princes Risborough and High Wycombe!

This place is very relaxing with very friendly owners, Shelagh and Malcolm Priestley, who even treated us to a “spot of wine” on their patio deck overlooking the colorful koi fish pond with damselflies, small garden birds around the feeders, red kites gliding overhead and horses in the meadow on a rare sunshiny day in the English countryside.

The room was large with everything brand new: oversized king bed, living room with flat screen TV, cable, coffee table, 2 sofas and a kitchen with a medium-sized refrigerator, microwave and 2 “hot plate” burners for self-catering if you want to make your own breakfast/meals. The large comfy velour bathrobes and super-clean bath with oversized shower were a big plus for us. The breakfast was super delicious in a fantastic private setting on the patio just outside the door to our room!

This B&B property is not well marked with signage on purpose—only internet bookings are allowed. To find this place is difficult unless you plug the exact coordinates into your GPS or find the intersection of Hampden Road and Perks Lane (Northeast corner) in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire just past High Wycombe as you exit the M25 motorway coming from London.

Coordinates: N 51 degrees 41.027’ W 000 degrees 44.902’


51 41’ 01.11” N 000 44’ 55.40’ W

There is a copyrighted aerial overhead picture of this entire property available on the internet at

for these coordinates 51° 41' 0.19" N 0° 44' 53.93" W of the house directly South on Perks Lane from the Garden Cottage Umhlanga B&B, plus Google Earth has street-level photos every 100 feet along both Hampden Road and Perks Lane. It is also located adjacent to a nature preserve with hiking trails in the outstanding natural beauty of the Chiltern Hills.

Prices are reasonable at £55 for a single, £70 for double and a discount is available for 3 or more nights or if you self-cater without breakfast.

We hope to stay here again when we visit our friends in Princes Risborough or travel outside London. This is a great single-room B&B for relaxing and enjoying fine accommodations in the English countryside!
