|Woughton On The Green|
Woughton on the Green is a village within the boundaries of the new city of Milton Keynes and yet surrounded by open space, parkland and waterways. It has medieval origins - Anglo Saxon name: Wulha's Tun - and is mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086 with an estimated population of 120. It has a village shop, a 14th century church, a 17th century pub and, of course, Apple Tree House, which has a 4 diamond rating with the AA guest house registration scheme.
Woughton retains its character and seclusion while benefiting from all the advantages of being part of a larger development area. Our name originates from the Crab Apple Trees, which form part of a centuries old, protected hedge to one side of the property. Every second year they provide a wonderful showof blossom and fruit, followed closely by the hawthorns with may flowers and autumn berries. Our third of an acre of well planted garden with decking, water feature, shaded areas, and gravel and grass section is available for our guests to share.Virtually outside the front door of apple Tree House is the Milton Keynes Linear Park and the Grand Union Canal, with its rows of popular trees, which bisects the city. To the south of us is The Green and the site of the medieval village with its remnants of agricultural systems, fishponds and streets, and beyondthat the Woughton Vineyard, producing organic wine. To the north of Apple Tree House, accessed via the Linear Park, is the Water Gardens where many wild flowers and grasses thrive and swans, ducks, moorhens and other water fowl regularly breed. Finally to the East of the village is the ouzel Valley Park, traversed by the River Ouzel which is flanked by willows and many acres of parkland. Sheep are usually to be found grazing here with the addition of lambs every spring.
The area is criss crossed by footpaths and is virtually traffic free with redways, leisure trails, horse trails and footpaths designed to separate the tranquil, pleasure seeking pedestrian, horse rider or cyclist from the motor car. Further details of the area, including walking maps are available for visitors to apple Tree House.
However, the motorist is not ignored. Milton Keynes grid road system is designed specifically for the motorist. It is well signposted and provides easy access to all parts of the city and surrounding areas, whether commercial, residential, industrial or leisure.
