The pretty market town is in the heart of the beautiful Chiltern Hills offering plenty of activities for those looking for romantic activities outside of London.

Take a romantic stroll alongside the river at sunset or board a chauffeur-driven boat for a gentle cruise; our teams will pack a picnic full of all the ingredients to make sure you and your loved one will have a day that you will cherish forever, we will also find you the perfect spot to roll out the picnic blanket and laze awhile.

Back at the hotel, afternoon tea for two, served by the fireside, overlooking the river is a perfect treat to indulge in together. Enjoy champagne, delicate sandwiches and cakes that will leave you glowing with delight. 

A hike through the stunning Chiltern Hills where the breath-taking scenery has inspired writers and poets for centuries, from Chaucer to Oscar Wilde to Agatha Christie and Roald Dahl. Take a walk together and write your own love story.
