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 can enjoy the intimate ambience of Milton’s Cottage, we recommend that groups of 8 people or more book with us in advance.  As Milton’s Cottage is a 16th century farm workers 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 our garden, the local village or St Giles church).

A visit to Milton’s Cottage usually lasts between 60-90 minutes.  If your group is planning a full day trip to the area, we would be happy 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 an enjoyable and enriching experience.

In the Area

When visiting Milton’s Cottage, why not take some time to wander around Chalfont St. Giles, one of the loveliest villages in the Chilterns?  As well as great pubs, cafes and restaurants there is a Norman church, village green, duck pond, old almshouses, and the River Misbourne – a rare chalk stream – running tranquilly through.  

Close by is the Chiltern Open Air Museum and the small village of Jordans – home to one of the oldest Quaker meeting houses in the country and famous as the last resting place of William Penn and his family.

The Chalfont St. Giles village website has a detailed visitor information guide about the local area which can be viewed online here.
