There is a good reason why Old Amersham is such a desirable location - for couples, families, businesses, TV and film companies.
An ancient market town, it is one of the few to hold an annual Charter Fair (each September) instated in the 13th century; it is the location for scenes in Four Weddings and a Funeral, episodes of Midsomer Murders and more recently Celebrity Masterchef; there are meeting and eating places to satisfy all tastes and educational facilities which are second to none in the country.
The location, which borders a rural landscape, also has a cosmopolitan feel that is enhanced by the boutique shops, independent retailers and coffee shops. A wider range of shopping and eating is in larger nearby towns such as Aylesbury, Watford and HighWycombe, all within a 35 minute drive from Old Amersham.

The M40 and M25 are within ten minutes' drive from the property giving easy access to all other areas whether travelling in or further out.
Not to be underestimated are the delights of the local area. Open farms, museums, fetes, carnivals and farmers' markets make this thoroughly country but with a feel of being on the edge of the city.
