WELCOME TO THE LYTTON AT CHALFONT DENE
The Lytton at Chalfont Dene is a unique restaurant and bistro, set alongside Buckinghamshire’s rolling Chiltern Hills and within the luxury Audley Chalfont Dene village.
At the heart of the village there is the magnificent Chalfont House, home to luxury apartments, health club with swimming pool, bar, bistro and the Lytton restaurant overlooking the landscaped grounds and lake.
The 9 acres of open grounds surrounding the development have been transformed into a relaxing expanse of landscaped courtyards and terraces with an orchard, flower meadow and beds to grow your own vegetables.
For that special occasion, The Lytton is the perfect place to sample culinary delights. It is close to many local suppliers including the Chiltern Brewery, the oldest independent brewery in the Chilterns, famous for craft beers and ales.
A PHILANTHROPIC LEGACY
Audley Chalfont Dene, formerly Skipping’s Farm, was once part of the National Society for the Employment of Epileptics (NSEE), launched in 1892.
Its founding group of London philanthropists offered epilepsy sufferers an alternative to workhouses and mental health facilities by introducing the chance to live and work in a rural environment. The place is just minutes away from the vibrant town of Chalfont St Peter, Chalfont St Giles and Gerrards Cross.
CHARMING CHALFONT ST PETER AND BEYOND
The nearby village of Chalfont St Peter was first recorded around the seventh century as an Anglo-Saxon settlement along the river Misbourne. It was later mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1087.
A vibrant village community with a bustling shopping area, a wide range of leisure and sports clubs and a number of friendly pubs and restaurants, Chalfont St Peter benefits from excellent rail links to London and Birmingham from nearby Gerrards Cross.
Beyond the landscaped grounds of Chalfont Dene lies The Chilterns; an enticing Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) for nature lovers to explore. This rural paradise covers an extensive 324 square miles and spreads through four of the South’s most picturesque counties.
For a more leisurely stroll, there is plenty to keep you entertained just a short walk away. Several parks and woodland areas surround the village gardens and the wetlands by the River Colne support a wide range of fauna including native birds, mammals and amphibians.
The Lytton is also close to several manor houses, museums and parks including Colne Valley Regional Park and Chiltern Open Air Museum. Of special note is John Milton’s Cottage in the neighbouring village of Chalfont St Giles, where he wrote Paradise Lost.
