Yew Tree Farm B&B Review

For my Dads birthday we had arranged a trip to Bletchley park. As Milton Keynes it about an hour and a half from us we decided to make a couple of days of it and stay near by in the evening.
Yew Tree Farm is a bed and breakfast about 20 minutes from Bletchley park and so it seemed like a good place to stay. 

From the road it doesn’t look like a terribly well kept place, but once you’re up the drive the renovated barn, which has the B&B rooms in, is very nice and looks as though it's only been recently refurbished. The owner was instantly outside welcoming us to the area and showing us to our rooms. My brother and I shared a spacious twin with en suit bathroom. Simply decorated but very comfortable. The rooms were definitely nicer than they had looked on the website.
The room was fully furnished with hot drink making facilities and complementary snacks, freeview TV, Wi-Fi connection (fibre optic) and complimentary shampoo and conditioner.

In terms of the room I can’t think of anything I would change or want to improve. 

This B&B is on a farm and although there was a large cafe of canaries by our room the tweeting in the morning didn’t bother us. When you’re in the country it’s to be expected.

For breakfast the following morning we had asked to eat at 9:00 and sure enough when we arrived the owner was there, ready to serve drinks and cook anything we asked for. I noticed there was a high-chair available for the breakfast table, just adding to the obvious consideration of the owners.
There was a varied selection of cereal and porridge available, as well as a full English breakfast to order. Juices, coffee and tea was also available. Vine tomatoes served on their stalks, cooked in olive oil were cooked really well. Little touches like that, instead of just cooking half a Tesco tomato, added to the overall enjoyment of our time there.
We must have been served our breakfast (four of us all having different types of eggs and additions) within 15 minutes, all cooked very well indeed.

If I had to be really picky and make a complaint it would be that the walls of our rooms were reasonably thin so you could hear people having a shower in the neighbouring rooms. This didn’t bother me though as if you went to a hotel you would expect this there anyway.
After making friends with the farm cat we headed off. I would defiantly recommend this B&B to anyone wanting to stay in the Bletchley area.
