Old Rose Cottage is located in Turville, in the heart of the Hambleden Valley, desiganted as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). This tiny village is actually one of the most popular film and TV location of the country: St Mary, the village's church, is the church featured in The Vicar of Dibley, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was based at the Cobstone Windmill (which overlooks the village) and the serie Midsomer Murders is a regular visitor here at the village (to name just a few!) And it's easy to see why. Nestled in the Chiltern Hills, the postcard perfect village will give you the impression of stepping back in time with its tranquility and its delightful cottages, most of which date back to the 16th century. The unspoilt beautiful countryside of the Chilterns AONB offers fabulous walking and cycling opportunities, the River Thames is 4 miles away - and the restaurants, boutiques, museums and buzzing night life of Henley, Marlow, Thame, Wallingford and Oxford are just a short drive away. Or you can relax in front of the log burner and soak up the peaceful atmosphere of Turville!!
OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES: a paradise for ramblers and cyclists, the breathtaking countryside of the Chilterns is without a doubt the best attraction of the area. The best way to explore the surroundings is walking or cycling; there are around 2,000 kilometers of trails scattered across the Chilterns to suit all levels of ability and 'motivation', and Turville is ideally placed to take advantage of quite a few of them! The breathtaking landscape is of gentle rolling chalk hills, dotted with small scale agriculture, woodlands, hedgerows and small traditional English towns and villages.
Closest to us are the Ridgeway Path, probably the oldest path in Britain, The Chiltern Way and Midsomer Murder Trails! Or you can follow England's best known river along The Thames Path.
The River Thames is just 4 miles away, and the area is famous for its rowing tradition (world famous Henley Royal Regatta takes place in July, Marlow Regatta happens in June) and there are plenty of canoeing, kayacking and sailing opportunities - as well as pic-nicking along the river. Golf courses are available in Henley (Badgemore Park Golf Club and Aspect Park Golf Club) and Marlow (Harleyford Golf Club) .
Hughenden Manor, home to Queen Victoria prime minister Benjamin Disraeli; Cliveden Estate overlooking the Thames; beautiful Greys Court and West Wycombe village are some of the National Trust properties you will find nearby, well worth a visit.
FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT Henley River & Rowing Museum, The Hellsfire Caves in West Wycombe, the Roald Dahl Museum in Great Missenden are just few of the must see places for families.
SHOPPING - SIGHTSEING - THEATRES - EATING OUT: Henley, Marlow, Watlington, Thame, Wallingford are all pretty historical market towns and feature interesting boutiques and independent shops as well as a choice of restaurants, pubs and gastropubs catering for every taste and budget. If it's culture you crave, Oxford is 20 miles away and theatres, galleries, museums and so many festivals and events you will be spoilt for choice happen in Henley and Marlow. Bicester Outlet Village is about 20 minute drive from the cottage.
