Located in the picturesque village of Old Amersham, The Kings Arms, much featured in TV and film dramas, dates back to the 1400s and has lost none of its historical character; expect low beams, squeaky floors and winding staircases in the original building whilst the rooms in the annexe are contemporary. All bedrooms have deeply comfortable beds and practical amenities including free WiFi; four-poster bedrooms are available in the original building. The on-site Kings Chapel is the perfect venue for weddings and a range of meetings and events. There’s an ample car park at the rear of the property.
