Retire to a county of scenic backdrops and open countryside

Whether you're looking for landscaped gardens or rolling hills and valleys, Buckinghamshire is full of natural beauty and diverse wildlife. More than a third of the whole county is made up of the Chiltern Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Beauty that covers over 300 square miles of woodland, fields and downland.

You can explore ancient oak woodland at Stockgrove County Park, see orchids and butterflies at Bacombe Hill, or spot a variety of birds at Boughton Lake.

There's an 11-mile network of towpaths and trails along the 200-year-old Grand Union Canal, as well as nearly 20 nature reserves dotted around the county.

Explore an area that's full of history

With more National Trust properties than anywhere else in the country, you'll find plenty of intriguing historical sites to admire around Buckinghamshire.

You can visit the stately homes at Claydon, Hughenden and Ascott House, take a ride on a steam train at the Chinoor and Princes Risborough Railway, or see the 14th-century moated gatehouse at Boarstall Tower.

You'll find rescued historic buildings from a variety of eras at the Chiltern Open Air Museum, Second World War code-breaking at the Bletchley Park Museum, or local history and culture at the Buckingham Old Gaol.

My son wanted me to move a bit closer to where he lives, and Atherstone is very pretty, so I was easily persuaded. I was a little bit worried about some parts of the move, but McCarthy & Stone’s Smooth Move service made it so easy for me, I had signed within a fortnight!
