Local life

Jordans is a picture perfect village set in the heart of the Chilterns with a strong community vibe, nestled between the larger villages of Seer Green and Chalfont St Giles and just a short drive from the cosmopolitan towns of Beaconsfield and Amersham.

Jordans is famous as the home of the Quakers, the resting place of William Penn – the founder of Pennsylvania, and the Mayflower Barn, made from ship timbers claimed to be from the Mayflower itself.

The surrounding villages are filled with fantastic country pubs and nearby Beaconsfield and Amersham provide lots of upmarket restaurants, boutiques, cafes and wine bars. There are countryside walks aplenty and a tennis club.

It’s commuter heaven with direct and fast train links (under 30 minutes) into London and easy access onto the M40 and M25. No wonder that the village is a closely guarded secret by discerning residents! There’s a local bus service too.

If you fancy a coffee to go, along with fresh bread and pastries, the Village Store has it all. It’s been at the heart of the community for a centenary and has all the essentials, plus fresh fruit and veg and even Ecover refill stations. There’s a pop up post office every Thursday or head down to the next village of Seer Green if you’re in a hurry.

The Jolly Quaker is the village pop up pub. And the Jolly Cricketers and The Horseshoes are fantastic for good food and drinks at any time of the week.

We love the strong sense of community here, showcased by the summer fair, sports day, cricket matches and an annual supper to commemorate the founding of the village. There’s even a monthly award-winning cinema club ‘Jordans Picture House’ when the big screen calls.

You’ll find a Waitrose and Sainsbury’s in nearby Beaconsfield and, of course, Ocado deliveries are on tap.

When it comes to nurseries and schools, there’s a nursery in the village and Jordans Primary School, rated Ofsted ‘Excellent’, is just a short stroll away. The Buckinghamshire grammar school system provides an outstanding range of options at senior level, and there are several independent schools in the vicinity as well.
