| Events in Kingston Blount | 10 Places to Stay

Kingston Blount is a village in the civil parish of Aston Rowant on the Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire borders, 1 mile from Chinor and 6 miles from Princes Risborough. The village is located at the foot of the Chiltern Hills. The 87 mile long Ridgeway, a national trail, runs to the south and the Lower Icknield Way to the north. Some late Iron Age cremation urns were discovered in 1974 at Elizabeth Villa in the High Street. The findings were placed in a museum in Oxford. The village has one public house, The Cherry Tree, a pub/restaurant with rooms, located on the High Street. There is a large playing field where the parish's main events, such as the May Day Celebrations, are held. The Kingston Blount Race Course holds 4 to 5 point-to-point meetings a year. Close by, The Aston Rowant National Nature Reserve is renowned as one of the best places in England to see red kites. Other nearby attractions include the Chinnor and Princes Risborough Heritage Railway Line. The 3.5 mile line runs along the foot of the Chiltern Hills. The Railway is open every Sunday from late March until late October. West Wycombe Park and Caves are just under 7 miles away in neighbouring Buckinghamshire.
