About Chilterns Bunkhouse

A restored barn in the middle of the woods, with little phone signal and wildlife roaming all around.

Nestling in the woodlands of the Ashridge Estate is Chilterns Bunkhouse. The rustic accommodation comprises of two restored barns; one for sleeping and one for chilling and cooking together. 

It’s an ideal stay for those looking to spend quality time together and live in harmony with nature for a while. Wild Fallow Deer regularly roam along the lawns outside and the sounds of the woods come alive at dawn. 

Its remote location and lack of phone signal should helping you to disconnect from modern life. But if you’re desperate to use your phone, don’t worry; a short walk into the woods or to the nearby village of Aldbury should allow for some signal.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
