Chiltern Way Accommodation and Other Services
RambleFest displays details of the Chiltern Way accommodation, guidebooks and maps, camping, where to eat and drink, and public transport. We also include an Ordnance Survey map link for each location along the route for which we have service details. Please refer to the Chiltern Way Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below) for places visited along the route. By clicking on any location, the Ordnance Survey map for that location can be opened and dragged (and re-sized) to follow the route of the Way.
The Chiltern Way main (or original) path is a meandering circular walk of 133½ miles through the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding natural Beauty, stating/finishing at Hemel Hempstead railway station. It passes through the counties of Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Oxford.
In addition, there is a Chiltern Way Southern Extension, and a Chiltern Way Northern Extension. There is plenty of Chiltern Way accommodation at regular intervals, and also many pubs and restaurants, making it a good choice for those wishing to do a long-distance walk but have concerns about long stretches without a break.
Please refer to the Chiltern Way Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below) for the places along the route at which there are services. For a route map of the walk, refer to The Chiltern Society.

Notes on Chiltern Way Accommodation
We have listed the accommodation for each location in our Chiltern Way Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table below. Simply click on a location to open the page displaying the details of accommodation, camping, pubs, restaurants and public transport available at that location, including addresses and contact info
We display a wide range of Chiltern Way accommodation type, e.g. B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc., but inevitably in some locations the accommodation is limited. Not all accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords. B&B (Bed and Breakfast) is almost always within the same house, farm, etc. as the people who run it. Guest Houses are usually expected to be grander than B&B, but are not necessarily so. Hotels are grander still, and with the expected higher cost, although there is a range of hotel quality. Hostels offer the most basic of accomodation above Bunk-House and Camping, and are therefore among the cheapest. Quite often some cleaning is required on the part of the resident.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping. Please refer to the Chiltern Way Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below).
We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome Chiltern Way accommodation recommendations.
Chiltern Way Restaurants and Pubs
Some ramblers will be content to stay in their B&B in the evening and relax. Others will want to explore the villages and towns and sample the pubs and restaurants. Luckily, many pubs serve good food, and at a reasonable cost. As mentioned above, there is plenty of stopping points along the Chiltern Way, whether for food or drink, and we have attempted to give as much information as possible on Chiltern Way pubs and restaurants, especially regarding pubs serving real ale and/or food. However, restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.
Please refer to the Please refer to the Chiltern Way Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below) for pubs, restaurants and other services along the Chiltern Way.
Chiltern Way Public Transport
We have provided information on public transport on the appropriate location pages – Please refer to the Chiltern Way Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below). However, to assist those planning their Chiltern Way walk we have also provided the information on a single web page: Chiltern Way Public Transport
We welcome amendments and updates.
