Rustic Hut Rental with Gorgeous Countryside Views near Bicester Village, England
This charming and rustic hut rental is located off the beaten path on a working, family-owned farm in Poundon, England.

The hut is equipped with running water and electricity and is powered by solar energy.

Other amenities include heating and air conditioning, cell service, and Wi-Fi.
Outside, guests can dine alfresco, or just sit on some nice patio chairs and enjoy the gorgeous views of the English countryside. The hut is shaded by a large hedge and surrounded by a lush blooming garden, where wildlife like deer, hares, and pheasants might wander. Guests can cook dinner on the BBQ grill, or walk down to the farm's dining hall for a delicious complimentary breakfast and a hot cup of coffee.

The farm is surrounded by a vast patchwork of rolling pastures and lush fields. Guests can walk around the farm to see the cows grazing, wildlife like deer and hares, and watch birds like pheasants and red kites.
Guests can hike and ride bikes up to the nearby Cotswold and Chiltern Hills. Beyond the hills, guests will find hamlets and villages with pubs, gift shops, cafes, and a gelateria. The farm is about 15 minutes away from Bicester Village, an ancient Saxon settlement known for its designer outlet shops and charming, winding cobblestone roads. At Bicester Heritage Park, guests can see restored vintage cars, airplanes, and motorcycles in a unique period setting of tree-lined avenues and historic redbrick buildings.
Being in the heart of the Aylesbury Vale means the lodge is conveniently located near a number of historic country manors and castles. Guests can tour acres of gorgeous landscaped gardens, or hallways festooned with priceless works of art, at Claydon House, Waddesdon Manor, and the National Trust Properties' Stowe Landscape Gardens at Buckingham. Thespians can visit Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace and the current home of the British National Theater.
History buffs can visit Bletchley Park, where allied soldiers cracked the German army's top-secret codes during World War II. They can also tour Blenheim Palace, Churchill's birthplace, and a World Heritage Site, or Warwick Castle, home of famous medieval Plantagenets. For more ancient history, guests can drive two hours over to Stonehenge, one of the most famous prehistoric monuments and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Bookworms can spend the day touring the halls of Oxford University, only half an hour away from the lodge. Over 800 years old, Oxford has housed and educated everyone from kings and saints, to politicians and philosophers, to scientists and some of the world's greatest literary minds, like John Keats and C.S. Lewis. Oxford was a filming location for the Harry Potter films and is home to a fantastic library worth exploring.
Poundon is over an hour and a half away from London, one of the world's most famous cities. The city provides no shortage of shopping, fine dining, museums, and art galleries. Guests can tour more historical landmarks like the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, and the Globe Theater. They can watch the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace, eat fish and chips near Piccadilly, catch a show at West End, or take photos of iconic sights like Big Ben. Additionally, guests can ride the Eye of London or take a boat tour along the River Thames.
