Hobbies and Interests
Whenever possible I like to read, usually history or fiction, or take advantage of the glorious countryside nearby, on long walks by the River Thames, or climbing the gentle hills that surround the town. I also enjoy baking and eating Afternoon Tea!
A large, bay-windowed ground floor room facing the private front garden, newly carpeted and decorated in cream with dark wood furniture - single bed, wardrobe, desk and chair, chest of drawers, armchair, and TV, radio and wifi.
Excursions and Local Attractions
High Wycombe lies in the heart of the Chiltern Hills - a very pretty part of Buckinghamshire located between London and Oxford, with lots of picturesque villages, quaint pubs, stately homes and historical churches as well as glorious countryside of gentle hills, woods and farmland. My house, a little bungalow with private front and back gardens, is about a kilometre from the town centre where there are good shops, restaurants, bars, a cinema and theatre, and there is also a large, modern sports centre with Olympic-sized swimming pool. The railway station offers regular and fast trains to London and Oxford, about 30 minutes away, and the famous riverside towns of Marlow and Henley-on-Thames are accessible by local bus, where boat trips and watersports can be arranged. We can visit Windsor Castle and Waddesdon Manor, built by the Rothschilds, on excursions, the art gallery founded by Stanley Spencer in nearby Cookham, go wine tasting at a local vineyard or sample the local beer.
