Coombe Hill and Low Scrubs

These National Trust sites offer a mix of woodland and grasslands with extensive views and great natural history interest. Coombe Hill is the highest point in the Chilterns.

Low scrubs is a unique woodland with a fascinating atmosphere. The beech trees here were coppiced for firewood for centuries. This practice no longer takes place and as a result the wood is very dark and mysterious, quite different to other beech forests.  

Coombe Hill is one of the highest point in the Chilterns and carries a monument to soldiers who fell during the Boer War.


Small free car park.

Getting There

From Wendover, follow the Wendover Road (B4010) towards Princes Risborough as far as Butlers Cross. Turn left onto Missenden Road and after about 1 mile take the next left up Lodge Hill to the car park at Low Scrubs/Coombe Hill.

Disabled Access

No sealed paths and steep gradient in places. Although the hilltop area is reasonably level, ground conditions are soft with no specific routes suitable for all abilities.
