Fleur de Lys Stokenchurch
Stokenchurch is less than 10 minutes drive from South Fields B&B. It is situated on the main A40 road and under a mile from Junction 5 of the M40. There are a large number of pubs in the village probably because Stokenchurch was at one time a staging post to change horses after the steep climb up the Chiltern escarpment. There were thirteen pubs and ale houses in the village in 1864 including the present-day Fleur de Lys and The Four Horse Shoes. The Kings Arms Hotel is where King Charles 11 is reputed to have stayed with his mistress in the 17th century .Today Stokenchurch is largely a residential village with a small number of high-tech companies around its borders.
