High Wycombe is Buckinghamshire's largest town and, despite its Georgian architecture, is a modern and thriving destination. Once famous as the 'Furniture Capital of England', High Wycombe still acts as home to a variety of woodsmiths and cabinet makers, but now supports businesses of virtually every sort as well as boasting some of the best shopping in the county. Whether you're visiting for business or pleasure, there's a good selection of hotels in the area, ranging from simple stopovers and characterful inns to luxury apartments and swish, upmarket hotels.
Quintessentially English: Hotels in High Wycombe
With Buckinghamshire hosting the most National Park properties in the United Kingdom, you'll find outstanding stately homes such as Hughenden Manor within a few minutes' drive. However, there are also some gloriously green, wide open spaces to explore, such as the 45 landscaped aces of Wycombe Park. Home to the Dashwood family for over 300 years, the park is also home to one of England's most eye-catching stately homes and has even found itself on the small screen in TV's Downton Abbey. If you fancy a slice of quintessentially English living, hotels such as the Wendover Arms and the Fox Country Inn offer excellent accommodation at great rates; perfect for families or couples looking to steal some time together.
