The Coppice Farm is situated in a delightful rural and secluded position tucked away from the public highway. The property is however situated close to the popular village of Akeley just 2.5 miles north of Buckingham. The village name is derived from the old English for 'oak field' and benefits from a well established primary school and village hall. The property is in catchment for the Royal Latin Grammar School in Buckingham with preparatory schools available at Akeley Wood, Swanbourne, Beechborough (Westbury) and Winchester House (Brackley). Senior schooling is available at Stowe, Thornton College (for girls), with Bloxham, Tudor Hall and the Oxford schools all within close range. A range of leisure and shopping facilities can be found in nearby Buckingham or Bicester, Oxford and Milton Keynes beyond. The property is well served for sporting and leisure activities with the nearby Silverstone race circuit and horse racing at Towcester.
