The Location - This beautiful, quintessential English country village enjoys an idyllic hilltop setting, around 7 miles north of Tring.

Originally mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, today the dominant feature of the village is undoubtedly the fine, Victorian, Grade I listed stately home, Mentmore Towers. Commissioned by Baron Meyer Amschel de Rothschild in the mid nineteenth century, this impressive mansion was designed by George Henry Stokes and Joseph Paxton, the latter having also been responsible for designing The Crystal Palace for the Great Exhibition of 1851.

On the death of Baron de Rothschild, the Estate was inherited by his daughter Hannah who, in 1878, married the fifth Earl of Rosebery, who later went on to become Prime Minister.

Mentmore village was, in the most part, rebuilt by Baron de Rothschild on completion of Mentmore Towers, to be used as accommodation for the Estate's many workers. The central village green still enjoys breathtaking views over the Vale of Aylesbury, while the village church, dating to the 13th Century and set at the highest point in the village, features a 15th Century tower that serves as a landmark for miles around.

Nearby - Cheddington - The nearby village of Cheddington, around two miles away, features its own mainline train station, with a regular service to London Euston in around 45 minutes.

On Your Doorstep - Tring - Tring town centre, which is a historic market town, providing a range of individual shops and restaurants including an M&S simply food and a large Tesco supermarket. Tring is surrounded by greenbelt countryside of great natural beauty, encompassing Tring Park and Tring reservoirs which are renowned nature reserves.
