The Chiltern Hills are a beautiful, unspoilt part of the country. They lie close to the north-west of London and yet retain their rural character. The government designated them as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1965, recognising their place as part of the finest countryside in England.
The neighbouring sister village of Aston Rowant has a rich history stretching back to the Domesday Book in the year 1086. The original village church probably dates from the 11th century, although there may have been a Saxon church on the same site prior to the Norman conquest.
We have a bus stop directly outside the house. We have a secure private gated driveway to park 8 cars safely.
