The Hedgerow at Wainhill


The Hedgerow is a recently built, detached timber lodge which is ideal for couples looking for a cosy and comfortable place to stay in a stunning location alongside The Ridgeway National Trail.   The lodge is chic and stylish with a modern, well equipped kitchen and state of the art shower cabin.  Beautifully furnished it has a separate bedroom off the living area with glorious views up to the bank of beech trees that flank The Ridgeway.  With a wooden deck to sit out and enjoy an al fresco salad, freshly picked from the Pottager garden and use of “Alice” an original 1950’s vintage caravan as a quirky summerhouse guests may find it difficult to tear themselves away to explore the Chilterns.

Soft fluffy Emily Bond dachshund towels, Ermana natural skincare products, Chiltern cold pressed rapeseed oils plus a home baked Victoria sponge cake and a bottle of bubbles are thoughtful extras for all guests at The Hedgerow.

Easily accessible from London within the hour, Oxford is on the doorstep and the splendors of Blenheim, Waddesdon Manor and Hughenden are all close by. Henley and Marlow are busy and bustling regatta towns and Thame, the local market town is the home of Midsomer Murders.  With the Chinnor and Princes Risborough Steam Railway running through Wainhill it adds a touch of timeless elegance to the hamlet.

With a private driveway and parking there is walking and cycling straight onto The Ridgeway itself from The Hedgerow and miles of footpaths and trails to discover.  Picnic in the clover meadow and make friends with the Herdwick rare breed sheep who are very tame and food orientated!

The Hedgerow is available for mini breaks and short stays throughout the year – dogs are welcome and their well-behaved owners too!
