What do I have in common with Oliver Crowell you ask. The Roundheads? The English Civil War? Legend has it Oliver billeted his troops here in 1643... So, coaching inn ambiance, Michelin Guide recommended cuisine, and pinpoint centre setting.
Flagstone floors, oak panelling and inglenook fireplaces. Accoladed fine dining, real ales and feature suites. Oh, and of course, Classic British hospitality. Villiers Hotel, Buckingham – named after the 1st Duke of Buckingham who used it as his local hostelry – treats you to both its 400-year history (as a former coaching inn) and 21st Century hospitality in central Buckingham.
All 49 guest rooms have been handsomely appointed. Suites benefit from private lounge areas and Jacuzzi baths; welcome after a fresh weekend walk around one of Buckinghamshire’s many stately homes and gardens.
But Buckinghamshire is much more than just stunning countryside and historic houses. Yes, yes, it’s replete with National Trust stately homes and gardens, but there’s more, much more. We’re not talking pretty market towns and chocolate-box villages. Well, okay, we are. But we’re also talking first-rate shopping, and a glut of art and culture, too.
