So if you are contemplating a holiday in the region here are some ideas for the ultimate holiday cottage break in Buckinghamshire.
Buckinghamshire has a rich and fascinating history, so it almost goes without saying that many of its attractions combine scenic beauty with a fascinating tale. Take Bletchley Park, for example, while it offers a delightful manor house setting amongst acres of grounds, the reason it's such a popular visitor destination is due to the part its code breakers played in World War II deciphering the Enigma code. Visit today and you can learn more about this incredible tale and view some of the restored original equipment.
A visit to Waddesdon Manor is almost essential. Widely considered one of the National Trust's finest properties, this renaissance-style château was built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild to showcase his impressive collection of treasures, not to mention his wealth!
If you fancy something a little less flamboyant then the Bekonscot Model Village in Beaconsfield is a delight for holidaymakers of all ages. Further fun for the young ones can be found at The Roald Dahl Children's Gallery, where you can find out about some of the author's most beloved creations.
