Exquisite countryside on London's doorstep
Hertfordshire is synonymous with manor houses, country parks and outdoor activities, and Chorleywood fits well with the area’s stereotype. With a superb manor house, stunning green areas and some interesting landscapes, the town is a far cry from the city of London, even though it's less than half an hour away by train. Chiltern Hills - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - is close by and offers outstanding landscapes to explore on foot.
Explore the grounds of Chorleywood's famous manor house
Spanning 170 acres, the Chorleywood House Estate is a 200-year-old manor house and estate that’s been granted the impressive Green Flag Award as one of the best green spaces in the country. Although the house itself is privately-owned, it's the grounds that really draws in the visitors. Explore the unkempt wilderness of the Sunken Garden, navigate the woodlands and wildlife of The Dell, or meander along the River Chess. Be sure to keep your eye out for the water vole, a protected species within the grounds.

Immerse yourself in the wizarding world of Harry Potter at the Warner Bros Studio Tour, just a short drive from Chorleywood. See real-life sets and costumes from the films, enjoy a glass of butterbeer and take a stroll down Diagon Alley. A must for all Potter fans. Looking for accommodation in Chorleywood?
