About this listing
Enjoy the tranquility and seclusion of our spacious and newly refurbished pool house chalet, complete with private seasonally heated (May to September) swimming pool and all year round hot tub Jacuzzi spa, located on our 30 acre farm and equestrian centre in the rural hamlet of Henton on the outskirts of Chinnor, Oxfordshire.
The Pool House is an ideal location for couples, families, walkers, cyclists, coarse/carp anglers and business travellers.
Opened for the first time as a holiday let in 2016, we are sure that The Pool House @ Upper Farm Henton will be your home away from home.
With its own private swimming pool (heated from May to September) and an all year round hot tub jacuzzi spa, you'll be surrounded by acres of green paddocks and with our 1 acre carp and coarse fishing lake, our self-catering chalet is the perfect setting for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The Pool House @ Upper Farm Henton is ideal for couples looking for a romantic getaway, or as a base for families, walkers, cyclists, anglers and business travellers and as we are only 40 minutes from Heathrow airport it’s also ideal for international visitors.
Located in an area of natural beauty and with spectacular views over the Chiltern Hills to Bledlow Ridge, it is the perfect setting for those who want a relaxing break in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. The village of Chinnor is 1.5 miles away with convenience stores and a few eateries plus we have the historic Chinnor Steam Railway, the town of Princes Risborough is just 4 miles away, with a good rail service into London Marylebone (40 to 50 minutes) and the historic market town of Thame is 7 miles away.
For birdwatchers, our fishing lake is surrounded by trees and is the home to red kites, kingfishers, sparrow hawks, woodpeckers, buzzards, kestrels, ducks, moor hens, pheasants and some very friendly robins and wrens. In the evening you are like to see foxes, badgers, rabbits and munt jack.
With two public footpaths running through the farm, walkers and cyclists can quickly and easily get on to the Phoenix trail and The Ridgeway, with miles upon miles of footpaths and bridleways to explore.
Angling guests at The Pool House have unlimited and inclusive access during their stay to fish our 1 acre carp and coarse lake located 100m from your holiday accommodation.

Please make sure that you are happy with the sleeping arrangements and bed configurations prior to booking.
We may choose to accept a booking for 6 guests as long as the group is made up of 2 or more children. However, you must contact us first to confirm your party size.
Please contact the host if you require further information.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any booking where there are more than 4 guests in the party unless pre-approved by us in writing prior to arrival.
We also reserve the right to charge an additional £15 per person, per night for extra guests not declared at the time of booking.
Maximum of 4 adults for any booking.
No extra guests unless approved by the host in advance.
No excessive outdoor noise after 11pm.
The Pool House should be left clean and tidy upon check-out. Failure to do so may result in an additional cleaning charge upon (or after) check-out.
The pool should be covered at night, when not in use to reduce heat loss.
There is no smoking permitted in the chalet. Smoking is permitted outside on the hard standing area.
Guests are not permitted to enter the stables or interact with the horses onsite, unless escorted by a member of the Upper Farm team.
We kindly request that all guests keep outdoor volume levels to a minimum after 11pm. Sound travels at night and we really like our neighbours and don't want to upset them with night time noise pollution. If we hear excessive noise or music after 11pm, you will first receive a friendly warning, then a visit and in extreme circumstances we will turn off the power to stop any loud music from being played. We want you to have an enjoyable stay, but equally we would like you to be mindful of our neighbours and the peaceful village in which we are located.
