Welcome to our secluded and romantic lodges

The Chilterns View offers luxury lodge accommodation overlooking the beautiful Chiltern Hills in Oxfordshire. 

Guests love the privacy and seclusion of our lodges with their wonderful South-facing views and individual hot tubs. Our Fire Pit is a favourite place to sit with a glass of fizz to watch the sun set over the hills, and in the daytime you can relax by our pond or take a walk to one of the many fine pubs and eateries in the area.

However, most of our guests simply want to stay put in their lodge and make the most of the veranda, hot tub, hammock, and the peace and quiet of our wonderful rural setting!

We are just an hour away from London, whilst the charmingly picturesque village of Ewelme and famed Shepherd’s Hut Pub are only 30 minutes walk away.  

Our Lodges

We are a small cosy site with just six lodges, each with their own private access, total seclusion, and a beautiful outlook over the Chiltern Hills.

All of our lodges have their own private hot tub, a veranda with hammock and BBQ, and stunning South-facing views across open countryside. Each lodge is en-suite with a king size bed, kitchenette, dining area and log burning stove.
