Dating back to the 15th century, the timber-beamed building is full of cosy nooks, candlelit tables and roaring log fires.The stretch of road from Amersham to nearby Chesham where the Boot and Slipper is located was once a hub for the region’s thriving local boot trade.In addition to the principle chateau there is a large secondary building which provides a comfortable cottage for staff, an adequate space for the garaging of several vehicles, the stabling of horses and storage/maintenance areas.Upstairs there is scope to create further self contained accommodation or entertainment/media rooms.The Chiltern Hills, a dedicated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, are also just a stone’s throw from Amersham, making this area a magnet for city dwellers seeking solace in the countryside.At the weekends, walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers and families flee the city for their fix of fresh air in the peaceful Chiltern Hills.
The pub is within walking distance from the train station and within easy reach of the M25, so it is a convenient location if guests are joining you from out of town.
The peace, tranquility and calm of the countryside without the intrusions of modern day life is only enhanced by the fields of sunflowers in the summer months.
The delightful chateau is surrounded by beautiful gardens and a large perimeter of wild flowers all set within 42 acres of its own grounds.
And, at the foot of the ‘hill’, there is picturesque Old Amersham, where upmarket coffee shops and boutiques sit alongside centuries-old buildings.
Amersham can count some of the biggest names in British history among its historic visitors, including John Knox, Oliver Cromwell and William Penn.
