Chalfont Dene

Close to the rolling Chiltern Hills, at the north-eastern edge of the village of Chalfont St Peter in Buckinghamshire, is Chalfont Dene. The village consists of 142 properties created to reflect the traditional Arts & Crafts build character of the Chilterns.

The land, formerly the home of the headquarters for the epilepsy charity, the NSE, has been developed to Audley’s impeccable standards with cottages and apartments situated in a beautifully landscaped environment.

At the centre of the village is Chalfont House, home to the outstanding facilities of the Health Club with swimming pool, sauna, restaurant and bar/bistro as well as lounge, library and studio.

Chalfont's history and life

Audley Chalfont Dene is fortunate to have the lively, friendly community of Chalfont St Peter as its close neighbour. The village was first recorded around the 7th Century as an Anglo Saxon settlement along the River Misbourne called 'Caedeles Funta'. It was later mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1087. The population at the 2001 census numbered 12,939, making Chalfont St Peter one of the largest villages in the South East of England.

Chalfont St Peter boasts many unique and interesting attractions, from the Chiltern Open Air Museum – which rescues and restores threatened historic buildings – to Chenies Manor House with its Tudor sunken garden and winding hedge maze. There’s also the popular Bekonscot Model Village & Railway, the oldest of its kind in the world, created by local resident Roland Callingham.

Chiltern Open Air Museum

The Chiltern Open Air Museum was founded in 1976 to rescue historic buildings threatened with being demolished. More than thirty have now been saved and rebuilt at the site of the museum. The collection focuses on vernacular buildings – the past houses and workplaces of ordinary people that are gradually disappearing from the landscape. Chiltern Open Air Museum preserves a heritage that would otherwise have been lost.
