Aston Clinton feels like a modern and spacious village and has seen a number of new housing developments in recent years. Around 10 minutes by car from the neighbouring towns of Tring, Wendover and Aylesbury, it's a great place to experience the variety and culture of some of the best towns in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.
In the village you'll find a doctor's surgery, Budgens convenience store, primary school, church, park with its own café and a further selection of well-regarded places to eat and drink: The Espresso Lounge Coffee Shop; The Bell, The Oak, and Partridge Arms pubs, and the more exotic Indian cuisine at Mela and Chinese cooking at China Water.
Choose from three mainline stations with direct trains to London: Tring (Euston in approx. 35 mins), Wendover and Stoke Mandeville (Marylebone in around 50 and 55 mins respectively), or pick up the A41 about 1.5 miles away for a dual carriageway link to the M25 (Junction 20).
The market towns of Tring and Wendover have a good line in independent shops and coffee houses, while Aylesbury's shopping centres and department stores are accompanied by a multiplex cinema and recently completed 42 million theatre.
Alongside the excellent Aston Clinton Primary School, the village falls within the Grammar Schools catchment area in Aylesbury.
In your free time you can explore the forest canopy at Go Ape in nearby Wendover Woods, or keep both feet on the ground at Chiltern Forest Golf Club.
The Aston Clinton Parish Council website has a full run down of facilities within the village along with a comprehensive local directory. It's one of the best community websites locally and a great resource for knowing what's what.
