Village life around Beaconsfield

we asked our local agent victoria where the loveliest villages are around beaconsfield. these are her top 5.

  • Seer Green & Jordans: seer green sits just outside Beaconsfield, and i love the vibrant, close-knit community feel. With a well-regarded primary school and village pub – the jolly cricketers, it seems there is always something fun going on, making it a great destination for families. Just next-door, the quaint village of jordans is known for its beautiful quaker meeting house with popular walks through its picturesque countryside. A Secret heaven for commuters, the villages also have a direct train line into London Marylebone. 

Visit: Woodfine Wine Vinyard @ Newbarn Farm www.woodfinewine.com 

  • Old Amersham: this quaint and picturesque village is a true gem, filled with character and history – and unbelievably, it’s accessible from the end of the metropolitan tube line! I love the array of specialist boutiques and independent cafes, all housed within historic chocolate-box architecture. 

Visit: Kew Little Pigs, an adorable little farm full of micro pigs to cuddle! https://kewlittlepigs.com/ 

  • Penn: this delightful village I get to call home is situated in the heart of the Chiltern hills, but is also really well connected. In just over 5 minutes, you can be on the m40 or at a train station with direct connections to London. Centred around the village green and duck pond, it boasts four pubs, a shop and a deli café, plus its only a short hop to the cosmopolitan centres of beaconsfield and amersham. Marlow and John Lewis are also not far away. 

Visit: Kingswood, Common and Penn woods are stunning places to explore all year round https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/visiting-woods/woods/kingswood/ 

  • Chalfont St Giles: Another charming village situated in the Chiltern Hills AONB, it is bursting with personality and has a real sense of community spirit. Consistently ranking highly in ‘best places to live’ guides, it has a fantastic selection of local eateries and farm shops, as well as a great selection of village amenities. 

Visit: The Chiltern Open Air Museum is a great day out for families. https://coam.org.uk/ 

  • Penn Street and Winchmore hill: not only do these adjoining hamlets have four pubs between them – it’s also home to the hugely popular music festival penn fest! Nestled halfway between beaconsfield and amersham, each has its own picture-perfect village green and a vibrant pub at each end – what more could you ask for?
