Old Rose Cottage is located in Turville, in the heart of the Hambleden Valley, desiganted as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). You might not know that this tiny village is actually one of the most popular film and TV location of the country: St Mary, the village's church, is the church featured in The Vicar of Dibley, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was based at the Cobstone Windmill (which overlooks the village) and the serie Midsomer Murders is a regular visitor here at the village (to name just a few!)
And it's easy to see why. Nestled in the Chiltern Hills, the postcard perfect village will give you the impression of stepping back in time with its tranquility and its delightful cottages, most of which date back to the 16th century.
The unspoilt beautiful countryside of the Chilterns AONB offers fabulous walking and cycling opportunities, the River Thames is 4 miles away - and the restaurants, boutiques, museums and buzzing night life of Henley, Marlow, Thame, Wallingford and Oxford are just a short drive away. Or you can relax in front of the log burner and soak up the peaceful atmosphere of Turville!!
