| Events in Quainton | 10 Places to Stay

A quintessential English village in Buckingshire is Quainton (previously Quainton Malet after the Malet family who were lords of the manor until 1348), 5 miles to the north-west of Aylesbury. The population is just over 1200, there’s a church, a school and 3 pubs! However, the village has certainly played its part in history. The church of St Mary and the Holy Cross dates back to the 14th century and a translator of the King James version of the Bible is buried in the chancel there. The windmill, overlooking the village green, was built in 1830 and is the tallest in the county at 65ft. It was derelict until recent restoration to working status and can be visited each Sunday morning. The village green is surrounded by half-timbered thatched cottages and close to it are the Winwood Almshouses. This 1867 terrace of 8 small cottages, with gothic style architecture, housed the poor of the parish. Now this pretty village is home to the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre (despite no public rail services here) – a working steam museum, Quainton Hill – offering 4 miles of spectaculat walking and Quainton Stud – an ultimate equine service! There are 3 pubs, all serving real ales, with The White Hart also serving food and offering accommodation, aswell as Woodlands Farmhouse B&B and the hotels of Aylesbury.
