Enjoy the tranquillity and seclusion of our spacious pool house chalet, complete with private seasonally heated (1 May to 30 September) outdoor 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.

The space
Covid-19 Update - Following the latest UK government guidance we re-opened to guests on 4th July 2020. Due to the additional cleaning and sanitisation required to keep our guests safe, we are unable to offer any form of early check-in or late check-out.

Opened for the first time as a holiday let in 2016, we are sure that The Pool House at Upper Farm Henton will be your home away from home.

With its own private outdoor swimming pool (heated from 1 May to 30 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 at 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 1.2 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.
