Views of the Vale: Coombe Hill walk

Route type: Circular and Linear Walks

This 3 mile walk takes you to the top of the Chiltern Hills, through ancient beech woods, carpets of bluebells and wild flowers. There are amazing views of the Vale of Aylesbury and Chequers, the Prime Minister’s country home. You might also see rare birds such as red kites and firecrests and the tiny muntjac deer. You can finish your walk with a tasty meal, pint of beer or cup of tea in Wendover.

Coombe Hill Monument is a memorial to the men of Buckinghamshire who fell in the Boer War. It was erected in 1904 and has been damaged by lightning on several occasions. The National Trust owns the hill.

Difficulty: Paths may be muddy after rain. Uphill for about 1 mile.
Access Information: This walk has 3 stiles, 3 kissing gates and narrow paths. It also involves a steady uphill climb.

We hope you'll enjoy this walk. If you do please consider making a small donation to help us continue to care for the Ridgeway National Trail and provide information about it.
