A Tiny House stay that's a home-from-home away from city life, set in an idyllic Buckinghamshire country lane with garden views.
You'll find Filly's Folly in North Crawley, a quiet and beautiful Milton Keynes village that's surrounded by the traditional English countryside Buckinghamshire is known for.
Just over half an hour by train from London, you'll feel as though you've been spirited to a magical destination as you enter this sumptuously cosy Tiny House, cleverly equipped and furnished with everything you could possibly need (including a spa hot tub in the garden!)
Friendly owner Karen is a keen traveller herself, so she's made sure all those essential luxuries are covered, from a piping hot power shower and fresh bedding, to a plentiful supply of tea and coffee.
Sleeping up to four people and ideal for small families, the light and bright space is completely open-plan, so you can catch up with your loved ones in sociable comfort. Every last detail has been thought about, with screens for added privacy and a stocked wine cooler included - there's even a small dedicated workspace if you absolutely have to catch up on those emails while you're away.
Facilities are well taken care of too, with a deluxe kitchenette, and an indulgent bathroom, complete with light-up mirror and underfloor heating.
When it's time to turn in, simply choose from a relaxing double day bed on the ground floor, or head up the ladder to the comfy loft bed (ideal for adventurous kids!)
On sunny mornings, head out to the garden with your coffee. Surrounded by greenery and birdsong, this really is the perfect start to your day. In fact, why not linger awhile over a light al fresco breakfast, as you plan your holiday activities?
Milton Keynes is a bustling haven of activity, home to Centre:MK for shopping, an indoor skiing centre for extra adrenaline, and a popular concert venue for entertainment. Local landmarks include Bletchley Park, the former top-secret home of the World War Two codebreakers.
Head to Woburn Safari Park if you're with the family, or simply head out along one of the many country footpaths you'll find directly from the house. A short stroll will lead you into the heart of the village, where you can while away a lazy afternoon in the local pub.
Make your way back to your Tiny House by evening - you'll want to catch that amazing sunset from the comfort of the hot tub, after all! - and light the firepit for a spot of marshmallow toasting as the first stars appear in the night sky.
With everything else so beautifully taken care of, all that's left to do is relax.
