This is a very unique weekend break which combines glorious walking in The Chilterns with a chocolate-making lesson at the famous artisan Rumsey's Chocolaterie. Rumsey's is a local favourite of The Carter Company, and we are excited to present this joint collaboration which showcases what we think are the best of things to see and do in The Chilterns. It is, after all, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Arrive on Friday evening in Wendover, and head to the Red Lion hotel where you will meet your host and receive your route directions. Set off on Saturday morning on a stunning and varied circular walk through the Chilterns. Take in majestic hilltop views, shaded paths through beechwoods, chalk escarpments and rich agricultural land, and make a pit stop at one of our favourite cosy pubs in this area, The Bernard Arms. On your return to Wendover, enjoy a traditional afternoon tea at Rumsey’s and indulge in some of their delicious cakes.

On Sunday morning, you will be transferred to Thame to attend a Rumsey's chocolate making lesson. We will transfer back to Wendover on Sunday evening to pick up your luggage and catch your return train home, or you can depart directly from Thame if travelling by car.
