Luxury Self Contained Accommodation Old Amersham Buckinghamshire, sleeps up to 7.

Delightful peaceful 16th century converted barn in the heart of Old Amersham hidden away to the rear of the Crown Hotel and within 100 yards of the centre of the Old Town.

One of the most beautiful towns in the South of England located in the rolling Chiltern Hills designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Fully equipped home away from home - ideal for corporate visitors or a holiday visit.

Do call or e mail as we have larger and other properties available but do note whilst we can do up to 7 guests in The Barn - it would be a squeeze - it would require the sofa bed to be used and the put me up bed as well - its fine for children or one family with close friends but 7 adults might be a stretch.

5 minutes to Amersham station (Taxi cost £3.80) London 35 minutes in air conditioned trains – off peak zone 1 day return £10.90

Private, secluded and extremely comfortable with private courtyard garden and own entrance - sit in kitchen

The Buckinghamshire region

The Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covers 324 square miles of countryside, stretching from the River Thames in southern Oxfordshire up through Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire to Hitchin in Hertfordshire.

In 1965 the designation recognised that the Chiltern Hills contain some of the finest landscapes in the United Kingdom.

The Chilterns AONB is a living, working area of countryside whose character has been shaped by people for centuries. Farmland covers nearly two-thirds of it and over one-fifth of the area is wooded. Attractive villages with brick and flint cottages nestle in quiet valleys. The chalk rock underlying the Chilterns gives rise to hillsides of velvety chalk downland. Water stored in the rock emerges from springs to feed clear, sparkling chalk streams like the Chess and Misbourne.

Amersham

Amersham - probably more than any other similar small town in England , preserves in the streets of the Old Town the same general appearance that it displayed during the 17th and 18th centuries.

The village of Old Amersham has an outstanding array of quality restaurants, pubs and shops. London is a mere 35 minutes by main line airconditioned train. The station is a brief walk up the hill or a taxi will cost less than £5.

The railway station is twelve minutes walk and there are regular trains to central London (journey time 30 minutes). Oxford is a mere 40 minutes by car and Windsor Castle home of the Queen, is just 30 minutes away. Shakespeare's birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon is 1 hour 20 minute drive.

Other attractions within easy reach are all the facilities of central London: the theatres, museums, Regents Park Zoo, Chessington World of Adventure, Legoland, Thorpe Park theme park, and Woburn Abbey Safari Park. There are numerous historic buildings that are open to the public, such as Waddesdon and Chenies Manor and Blenheim Palace is just the far side of Oxford.

Old Amersham is an ideal location for sporting events including Ascot Sandown and Epsom racecourses, Henley Regatta, and various premier league football and rugby events in London.

The origins of the town go back to pre Saxon times. Amersham was then called Agmodesham. The Doomsday Book listed Amersham as Elmodesham, with 6 manors, one belonging to the wife of Edward the Confessor. In 1200, King John granted the town a market and fair, the fair is still held every year on the 19th and 20th of September, the market every Tuesday, but it has moved to Amersham on the Hill..

The Reformation had some roots in the town as several Lollards were condemned to death and burnt at the stake, a memorial on the hill above the town commemorates this event.
