Let's explore...

Shopping

The centre of Stone village is just a 10-minute walk away with basic amenities such as a local Co-op, a petrol station and a traditional pub.

Nearby Aylesbury has all your shopping needs covered with a number of shopping centres clustered round its bustling centre offering access to popular brands such as H&M, Office, Next, River Island, Sports Direct, Argos and Wickes. And if you fancy something a little more luxurious Bicester village is only 30 minutes away, where you can enjoy a selection of over 100 designer brands.

Entertainment

There are plenty of activities in the surrounding area for the whole family to enjoy. Bring story books to life by visiting the Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery, only an 8-minute drive from Raven’s Forge.

Outdoor lovers will find plenty to do at Wendover Woods. You can walk, run or cycle their many nature trails or, if you are feeling brave, try your hand at the Go Ape high ropes course in the centre of the forest.

For some ‘grown-up only’ time enjoy afternoon tea at the stunning Waddesdon Manor, a pamper day at Champneys Spa or a tour of Chiltern Brewery, the oldest independent brewery in the Chiltern Hills, all within half an hour of home.

And just a 5-minute drive away you’ll find Hartwell House, a hidden gem in the Buckinghamshire countryside and the perfect spot for a romantic weekend. This country house hotel and spa showcases a Grade 1 listed Jacobean and Georgian house, set in over 90 acres of gardens and parkland.

Schools

With Buckinghamshire remaining one of the few counties to retain the grammar school system, there are a number of excellent schools in the vicinity of Raven’s Forge. Aylesbury Grammar School (boys only) and Aylesbury High School (girls only) are just a 10-minute drive away. Both schools consistently rank in the top hundred in the country for exam results with many students going on to Oxbridge and other Russell Group universities. There are also several independent schools within a 30-minute drive including the renowned Wycombe Abbey, one of the leading girls’ boarding schools in the UK.
