Ivinghoe Beacon, Coombe Hill and Whiteleaf Cross are prominent landmarks of the Chiltern Hills and perfect spots to have a picnic or watch the sun go down.
Seemingly remote, these sites provide fantastic views across the vast flats of Aylesbury Vale.
As the starting point of the ancient Icknield Way and the Ridgeway, Ivinghoe Beacon is perfect for walking prior to a luxurious meal at Ivinghoe’s 16th century King’s Head restaurant.
Coombe Hill sits 267 metres above sea level but a 3.5-mile circular climb, starting in Wendover, takes you through ancient beech woods, carpets of bluebells and up to the windy peak with its Boer Memorial monument. Relax with a summer picnic or enjoy a hot chocolate at Rumsey’s Chocolaterie, just the thing after a brisk walk.
Whiteleaf Hill with its chalk-hill figure of Whiteleaf Cross has archaeological features and is accessible for buggies and wheelchair users.
