This village is a very sought-after location in the upper part of the Hambleden Valley, which is one of most desirable valleys in the South of England. The village is home to St Bartholemew's Church, a Grade 1 listed building with a Norman Tower dating back to the 12th Century. The village is also home to The Chequers Inn, a beautiful brick and flint pub with the best beer garden for miles around. This village has regularly featured in such TV programmes as 'Midsommer Murders', 'The Vicar of Dibley' and the film 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang'.

Location

The village is within a short drive of the bustling riverside towns of both Marlow & Henley on Thames, both offering an extensive range of individual shops, cafes & restaurants including The Ivy Marlow Garden and Tom Kerridge's 2 Michelin Star 'The Hand & Flowers' in West Street, Marlow, and both with Stations to London Paddington (via Maidenhead & Twyford respectively). High Wycombe Station for London Marylebone is just over 7 miles, with the M40 motorway within easy reach at both J4 & J5, for London, Heathrow & Oxford.

The Hambleden valley offers great opportunities for walking, cycling & riding, whilst both Marlow & Henley offer a large range of leisure activities including clubs for tennis, hockey, cricket, bowls; golf at Harleyford, Temple, Henley & Badgemore Park; Marlow RFC & Marlow FC, Henley Hawks RFC; various fitness clubs & gymnasiums as well as The National Sports Centre at Bisham Abbey.

Directions

Mill End is on the Henley/Marlow Road at the bottom of the Hambelden Valley near Hambleden Lock. From here take the Skirmett Road up the valley past Hambeden village and on to Skirmett. Continue through Skirmett past The Frog pub and continue up for about one mile until you get to Fingest. As the road sweeps down to the right take the turning on the left towards Fingest. The house is the last house on the left opposite the junction to the Oxford Road which leads up through the woods to Ibstone.

Alternatively, from Marlow, proceed west from the top of the High Street, turn right at Platts Garage into Oxford Road, follow the road until reaching the Frieth crossroads (about 4 miles) go straight across, bear left signposted Fingest, pass the Chequers pub on your left, keep going where the house will be found on the left-hand side just before the right hand turning signposted Ibstone.
