The property is approached by passing the picturesque pond made famous by the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The Beehive is set in a rural location, with views from the garden enjoying an outlook over the common. Russells Water is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the heart of the Chilterns. There is immediate access to open countryside offering numerous footpaths and bridleways and a nature reserve. The village is located approx. 3 miles from Watlington and Nettlebed, each providing local shops and recreational facilities. The lovely market town of Henley-on-Thames is about 6 miles, catering to a comprehensive range of shopping, schooling and recreational facilities together with a rail service to London Paddington. The centres of Reading, Oxford and High Wycombe are easily accessible with good transportation to central London. There is ready access to the M40 (J5/6) and the M4 (J8/9. Heathrow is about 30 miles.


The Beehive is a Grade II Listed former public house, that is believed to date back to the 17th century. Originally believed to have been two cottages, it was converted into an inn in the 18th century. Most recently it has been converted back to a single dwelling formed of two parts; The Beehive (former public house) and an attached bungalow offering further accommodation.

To the front of the property there are two areas for off street parking for several vehicles. There is a garden to the back of the house that was formally the pub garden. The garden opens up to further land and is a wonderful feature to the property. It is mainly laid to lawn with a large number of mature trees and shrubs, with superb views across the common. The Beehive offers an excellent opportunity to develop/build on, subject to the usual planning consents. In total the plot is approximately 1.625 acres.
