At 852 feet above sea level, Coombe Hill is the highest point in the Chiltern Hills and it is topped by an obelisk memorial which can be seen for miles around. With extensive views over the Aylesbury Vale, on a clear day you can also see all the way to the Cotswolds. The hill is rich with native plants, insects and birds and cattle graze the area too.
The hill is managed by the National Trust. It is Open Access Land and the route from Low Scrubs car park to the monument is considered 'easy access' for disabled people and families.
Car parking is available in Wendover at the bottom of the hill or at the top of the hill at the National Trust car park at Low Scrubs (nearest postcode HP17 0UR). Low Scrubs car park gets busy at weekends so arrive early to avoid disappointment or park in Wendover.
