Being in the heart of the Chilterns one of the 38 AONBs (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), we are blessed with some of nature’s finest landscapes, not to mention glorious wildlife, some of which is native to the Chilterns. It’s a walkers and cyclists heaven
History and architecture also awaits you, with gorgeous brick and flint buildings and manor houses dotted over the countryside, most of particular heritage such as Hughenden manor or Berkhamsted Castle.
It’s staggering how many famous people, artists, literary idols, royal connections and (hmmm) politicians have been part of the Chilterns. Most of their legacies have been left behind in some of form in the Chilterns.
