Long Crendon ManorBrochure Page. 01
Visitors to Long Crendon Manor near Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire will find themselves stepping back in time as this is undoubtedly one of the oldest Wolsey Lodges to be found. Dating back to 1187 when it began life as the dwelling for the abbots of Notley. The east and west wings were added in later centuries before a total refurbishment began in 1920.
Sue Soar and friendly St. Bernard Hatty will welcome you to this delightful luxury bed and breakfast accommodation with tea & biscuits. This rambling house has two delightful B&B guest rooms which are spacious and cosy and each has an en suite bathroom. As well as tea and coffee making facilities, there is a tray with a carafe of sherry and a fridge is provided and filled with treats for B&B guests to choose from (some complimentary and some charged). Supremely comfortable beds are adorned with fine linen and goose down duvets. One bedroom has an adjoining dressing room which could be used as a small twin for children - ideal for a family visiting this lovely area of Buckinghamshire. Ask about the price for this.
Outside the gardens include a maze, croquet lawn and swimming pool; a vegetable and fruit garden, meadow and Sue's collection of rare breed pigs. B&B guests can use the oak-panelled drawing room to relax, read, watch television or just enjoy the log fire on a cold winter's night. Breakfast is served in the beamed dining room off the medieval hall, which is reknowned for its 'twin truss and crown post' structure. In the summer, breakfast can be served on the terrace beneath the vine.
