Holidaying In The Chilterns - Even Though I Live Here!
Posted 31 October 2010 - 04:17 PM
I live in Chesham but haven't lived here long, almost a year in fact.
I want to take a short break some time in the middle of November as I have a week off before starting my new job in London. Rather than going somewhere I don't know just for the hell of it, I suddenly thought.... why not holiday here?!? I don't know that many places here and I would love to get to know it better.
Could anyone recommed a place to go? Ideally I am looking for somewhere picturesque in the countryside, a small bed and breakfast with shops and a nearby village, but also somewhere with walking trails and views of the Chilterns' stunning countryside.
Oh, I should say I am particularly interested in areas of outstanding natural beauty, and a place where somehow I can support the village where I am staying, if you see what I mean? I am also hoping to get into agricultural law someday.... all a bit random I know, but if you can help I would be very grateful!

A bit further afield is Ewelme in Oxfordshire. Another lovely village, with historic old schoolhouse and almshouses, watercress beds, a good pub. Not sure about accommodation but I'm sure you will find something on Google. To my mine this is an even nicer part of the Chilterns than around here (hope I don't get banished from the forum for that remark).
