The Bull and Butcher is a lovely traditional English pub in the beautiful village of Turville, just past Hambledon. The pub does great food and can get very busy, so best to book if you plan on enjoying one of their delicious Sunday roasts!
The countryside is really beautiful which makes this area one of my fave places to walk. We’ve only tried out the routes below but I’ve no doubt there are plenty more if you are feeling adventurous!.
Beech Woods Loop Approx 20mins for an adult (see map below)
From the Bull & Butcher, walk past church north out of the village. Take first left after The Vicarage as you enter the woods. Follow footpath around outside of field towards the bench where a short rest can be taken to take in the beautiful views of the windmill and the Chiltern Ridge from Stokenchurch. Adjacent to the bench is a path taking you back towards the village over a style and through some woodland. Over another style and into a field with views across the Hambleden Valley. Walk down the hill to the left, over the style and left through a gate into some light woodland. This path brings you back into the village from the School end.
On this walk you are quite close to the Barn Cafe – a quirky cafe you can only reach on foot.
The route above is not suitable for pram’s or scooters.
This is more a mini explore adventure than a proper walk. The windmill is very clearly seen on the hill opposite the Bull and Butcher. Our boys enjoyed scaling the steep hill to get a glimpse of it and then most of all, running back down again! I think there is a longer route which you can see more about here.
NOTE: you can’t actually go in the windmill or approach it directly (you have to squeeze through a fence to get a good view of it at the top!).
