    Little Hampden Circular Walk

    The Little Hampden Circular Walk takes you on a quintessential Chiltern Hill stroll, where bluebells add colour to the green scenery in spring, shaded woodland blocks the outside noise, and the view from Coombe Hill reveals the ever-so calming rolling English countryside scenery. This relatively flat route can get muddy during the wetter months, but it’s definitely a must-do stroll.

    Route Description for Little Hampden Circular Walk

    The Little Hampden Circular Walk in the Chilterns begins from Little Wood and takes through a montage of scenery: woodland, viewpoints overlooking the English countryside, and, depending on the season, bluebells blanketing the land. This family-friendly walk will keep moans of “I’m bored” at bay, making it an enjoyable walk for all ages! However, during the winter and later autumn months, the path can get muddy, which may cause some complaints. Do note that the slippery path may not be best for younger kids—or those of you with unstable footwear! But when the sun’s shining, this hike is a must-do. One of the highlights is the view atop Coombe Hill.

    Getting to the Little Hampden Circular Walk Trailhead

    To get to the start of the Little Hampden Circular Walk, head to Great Missenden, where you’ll follow Rignall Road before taking a right towards Little Hampden Church. Just after the church, you’ll reach Little Wood, your destination. You’ll see a small parking lot!
