Bradenhamis a small village about 7km north-west of High Wycombe. It is in the county of Buckinghamshire in the beautiful Chilterns Area of Outstanding Beauty.
Bradenham is a charming village which is listed in the Doomsday book. The whole village belongs to the National Trust.
At the top of a very large village green there is Bradenham's parish church and Bradenham Manor. Take a look through the gateway of the manor at the beautiful herbacious borders. Bradenham Manor is a 13th century building and Queen Elizabeth I was once a guest here. It later belonged to Isaac D'Israeli and Benjamin Disraeli (who became Prime Minister) lived there for a while.
Around the rest of the green are a selection of beautiful houses, some in red brick and others in the lovely flint which is common to the area. All have lovely sloping terracotta tiled roofs often with little triangular dormer windows.
One building stands out from the rest and this is the 18th century 'White House' in a completely different style to the rest.
All around the village the Chiltern hills rise up adding to the beauty of the setting.
When I was there, there was even a cricket match taking place on the green - idyllic!
