| Events in Stokenchurch | 10 Places to Stay
Stokenchurch is on the A40, a mile from junction 5 of the M40 (cutting the village in half), in the Chiltern Hills of Buckinghamshire (though prior to 1896 the village was in Oxfordshire!). The now largely residential village, originated as a stopping point on the main road to London for stage coaches, hence the previously large number of pubs and inns! Stokenchurch was also the centre for chair making, using locally felled wood.
Here is one of the few places in GB where Red Kites can regularly be seen and the Stokenchurch Gap is a man-made wonder of the modren age! Once the main route between Oxford and London, it scales the steep slopes of the Chilterns. Stokenchurch Dog Rescue formed in 1963 to help strays and unwanted pets, it is open to visitors every day, excluding lunch times and Thursdays.
The Kings Hotel is famous for King Charles II (in the 17th century) reputedly staying there with his mistress! It has recently been refurbished and is part of the Best Western hotel chain, offering accommodation, restaurant and bar. The Fleur de Lis is another 16th century establishment but very lively with pool competitions, darts matches, quizzes, etc and The Royal Oak serves traditional pub food. There is Hall Bottom Farm B&B in the village and The Blue Flag Hotel and The Fox Country Hotel are close by.
