We are a perfect place for family get-aways or holidays, with a fully equipped kitchen, garden, indoor and outdoor games, and lots to do in the area. Suitable for all ages, baby and Granny.

Our guests say they love the underfloor heating and ‘shoes off’ policy which is a delight for a crawling baby.  They also like the fast wifi and places to ‘tuck away’ for teenagers.   We hosted 3 generations on Mother Day, and 2 American couples, son and Dad.  We are great for stays with older family members who are not so mobile.

We offer great rates for mid week and regular business guests, up to 6 beds. Home from home, secure parking, cat 6 and wifi. Save on accommodation but don’t compromise on comfort.

We have had several teams staying together when on building projects, and held a weekend brainstorming meeting.  Our guests have enjoyed rates as low as £35 per head, and eating more cheaply and healthily, and relaxing over a movie after work.  All we ask is that workmen appreciate that is it a high spec place and look after it accordingly!



With a large patio, huge corner sofa, seating for 8 we are perfect for family, friends and business gatherings. Please contact us in advance to discuss your requirements and confirm suitability.

Examples of groups who have enjoyed staying with us include a ladies crafting weekend with our huge table, friend’s reunion weekends,  overnight stay and morning meet up for a wedding, funeral, and christening, celebrating a 3 year old’s birthday, 2 families ‘meeting in the middle’ for a get together.   We do ask that you ask in advance if you want to have visitors, and we don’t allow hen stag nights or actual parties.

Unfortunately we are not able to host parties.

Fantastic place to stay, lots of space, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Our daughter uses a wheelchair and had lots of room to get around. Wet room was very good for her use also. Loved seeing the horses and dogs.Vicki is very friendly and helpful if you needed anything.We stayed in October, previously was going to stay in April before lockdown arrived, but Vicki offered our money back or reshedule and we are glad that we did! Will book again for next summer so that we can sit outside a bit more.

This is a strange review because in the end, due to Covid concerns, we had to cancel our stay. I can say however that dealing with Vicki over this difficult time was very,very easy. If you are looking to deal with someone who is honest and fair then you are in the right place. Vicki didn't hassle us at all to make a decision re whether we could go or not even although time was getting on. Once we had decided that we definitely couldn't go she offered us a refund of our deposit right way and wasn't even going to keep an admin fee until I insisted. We very much hope to visit next year as it looks a fantastic place to stay and they are easy people to deal with.

Great place to stay with our two dogs when we had to move out of our house for a few weeks. Vicki and Alan are great hosts and we highly recommend Maythorn Farm.

Vicki was such a great host. The accommodation is spacious, spotlessly clean, in a very private and quiet location. It was the perfect venue for our pre-wedding rituals, the open plan accommodated all our 30 + guests that attend the ceremony and had enough space for the caterers to set up outside and parking for our guests. We will definitely be booking it again for the next family event.

We hebben een geweldige week gehad in dit zeer comfortabele, ruime huis. Vicki is een hele goede gastvrouw en we voelden ons zeer welkom. Het huis staat op een mooie rustige plek net buiten het dorpje Stevington, van hieruit kun je mooie dagtrips maken naar Oxford, Cambridge en Londen. Dit huis is geschikt voor invaliden, er zijn twee slaapkamers beneden en een ruime badkamer met een anti-slip vloer. Kortom we hebben enorm genoten. (gezin met 4 tieners)

Myself and my family stayed at Maythorn farm for a month as we were in between a house move. The stay was amazing and Vicki was the best host ever always attending to anything we needed and making sure we were comfortable. Our 3 year old had her very own chickens she named Robin Hood and Samson the frog. Every morning she woke up and collected eggs from them. Our teenager loved practically having her own apartment upstairs. The photos don’t do the place justice as it’s so much more beautiful and peaceful. Waking up to the sounds of horses and enjoying a cup of coffee over looking the spectacular views was priceless. Perfect for children, pets young and the old!! Thank you Vicki and Mr Barrett for truly a great stay making it easier for us to deal with the stresses life threw at us. Definitely will come and visit again x

Mooi en ruim huis waar je tot rust kunt komen. Van alle gemakken voorzien en het ligt in een rustig dorp net buiten Bedford. Eigenaren zijn uitermate vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Bij de Lokale pub kun je goed eten en drinken. Motoren konden we achter het huis parkeren.

We had a fabulous, relaxing stay here with our 7 year old and dog for a week at half term. Loads of space for running around for both boy and dog. Vicky has set up a lovely house for rental, generous sized bedrooms, all the kitchen equipment you could wish for and huge amounts of games to play. Countryside around is rolling and lush, with loads of lovely dog walks near by and the disused railway line 10 mins walk away is great for safe kids biking too. Lots to do around and about too for older kids in Milton Keynes/Bedford way. We also had our own resident hen (named Esther by our son), who kindly laid and egg each day for us, much to our son's joy. Great hosts and couldn't do enough for us. Will hopefully be back one day!

Great value, spacious, spotless clean, quiet and private, lovely Vicki is an amazing host! Versatile- families, groups, kids, pets also has disabled access and facilities. It's close to shops and there's so much to see near by. Cambridge is just 1hr away so we went punting as well 🙂 We had a great time and we definitely return!
