Top Places to Visit on a Cottage Holiday in Marlow
• Lying just outside of the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, these hills and their wonderful walks and bridleways are within easy reach of Marlow. The Ridgeway walking route cuts through and can guide you through much of the Chilterns' countryside and woodlands.
• Just 20 minutes’ car ride from Marlow is the lovely riverside town of Henley-on-Thames which is much like Marlow but on a larger scale.
• If you like visiting National Trust properties, the picture-perfect village of West Wycombe with its splendid historical buildings should not be missed. Also at West Wycombe is a splendid country house with lake and the Hellfire Caves which are rumoured to be haunted. There is also a hill (under which the Hellfire Caves lie), which is great to climb and up at the top you can see the Mausoleum for the Dashwood family and take in fantastic views. West Wycombe lies just 8 miles from Marlow.
• Those holidaying in Marlow with young children may want to treat the kids to a day out at Legoland which is only around half an hour’s drive away near Windsor.
• Another attraction likely to appeal to families is the Warner Brothers Studio tour at Watford where you can learn about the making and magic of Harry Potter (around half an hour’s drive from Marlow).
• Windsor is worth a visit in any event with historical Windsor castle, a beautiful riverside location and excellent shopping and eateries to recommend it. Just across the river from Windsor is Eton which is another fascinating place to visit. Windsor is around 14 miles from Marlow.
