Group Visits

Milton’s Cottage is the perfect destination for a group visit and we are delighted to cater for parties of varying sizes and interests.

So that all of our visitors enjoy the intimate ambience of Milton’s Cottage, we recommend that any groups of 15 or more people book with us in advance.  As Milton’s Cottage is a Grade I listed Elizabethan cottage, with limited space, our maximum group size is 25 people (or up to 50 if the group is able to divide into smaller groups to visit the garden or St. Giles Church).

A visit to Milton’s Cottage usually lasts between 1 – 1.5 hours.  If your group is planning a full day trip to the area, we would be delighted to suggest other local visitor attractions as well as cafes, restaurants and pubs in the village.  We are happy to provide contact details and any other information to help make your group visit a pleasurable one.

Whilst visiting Milton’s Cottage, why not take some time to wander around the village of Chalfont St. Giles, one of the loveliest in the Chilterns?  As well as great pubs, cafes and restaurants there’s a Grade I listed Norman church, old almshouses and the River Misbourne running tranquilly through.

Close by is the Chiltern Open Air Museum and Jordans Quaker Meeting House – famous as the last resting place of William Penn and his family.
