Mentmore is a beautiful, quintessential English country village steeped in history. Originally mentioned in the Doomesday Book of 1086, today the dominant feature of the village is the Victorian, Grade I listed stately home, Mentmore Towers. Commissioned by Baron Meyer Amschel de Rothschild in the mid nineteenth century, this impressive mansion was designed by George Henry Stokes and Joseph Paxton, the latter having also been responsible for designing The Crystal Palace for the Great Exhibition of 1851. On the death of Baron de Rothschild, the Estate was inherited by his daughter Hannah who, in 1878, married the fifth Earl of Rosebery, who later went on to become Prime Minister. Mentmore village was, in the most part, rebuilt by Baron de Rothschild on completion of Mentmore Towers, to be used as accommodation for the Estate's many workers. The central village green still enjoys breathtaking views over the Vale of Aylesbury, while the village church, dating to the 13th Century and set at the highest point in the village, features a 15th Century tower that serves as a landmark for miles around. Today it is one of Buckinghamhsire's premier locations with easy access to mainline railway stations at Cheddington, Leighton Buzzard and Tring all offering frequent services to London Euston from around 30 mins (Leighton Buzzard). The ‘Stag' , a well regarded pub/restaurant has recently been refurbished and is now run by the community. The area is well served for shooling being within the Buckinghamshire Grammar School catchment area, private schools in the area include Berkhamsted School, Akeley Wood, St. Columba's College and Stowe.
