The Crown is a lovely country getaway.

The Crown Inn, Amersham in Buckinghamshire, is a historic yet modern coaching inn, only 50 minutes from London by car or an easy 35 minutes from Marylebone by tube. This delightful Inn has 40 sumptuous bedrooms and prides itself with its traditional hospitality in a modern coaching inn setting.

Accommodation is graded into 5 categories to suit your budget; all rooms have comfy mattresses, pure cotton sheets and extra Jacob's wool blankets. There is also free wifi should you feel the need to catch up with the outside world. The 5 room types are listed as follows: The Main Inn, Ilse Crawford rooms with enormous beds, bright red Roberts radios and rainforest showers;

Eating and drinking form the main stay of the Inn, with the Crown Chop House being at the heartbeat of this thriving establishment, serving hearty portions of grilled meats and salads, all washed down with fine wines and local ales. Head Chef David Hawkins selects seasonal produce from handpicked local suppliers and thus offers a refreshing and constantly changing menu.

With inglenook fires, crooked floors, a cobbled courtyard and design features that take you back to bygone days this surely does seem an escape to another era, and far away from the city crowds.

Aside from this, you can also work off your lunch or dinner with a stroll around the surrounding countryside or take one of the Inn's mountain bikes to explore further afield. The Crown can also provide you with a Champagne picnic if you are planning a very special day out. You can also indulge in a personalised pampering treatment at the local " Lemon Rooms" where guests can enjoy 15% discount only 2 minutes' walk away. 

Your stay at the Crown can be as private or as sociable as you want it to be. There is live music on the first Friday of every month. Whenever you visit you are surely bound to have a most memorable stay at the Crown. Please check the website for further information and don't forget to mention Away without the Kids when booking!
