Chorleywood is a large village on the edge of the Chilterns AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), a range of chalk hills north-west of London. The area is popular for walking with beautiful countryside, picturesque villages and great views.
Philipshill Wood is an ancient woodland site but more recently was mainly beech for the Chilterns furniture

Bluebells can be seen in the spring as well as other woodland wildlife throughout the year.
Open at all times.
