Our County Guide Centre at Ellesborough provides indoor accommodation for 30 people. There are two campsites, each accommodating 30 people. The Centre was originally the village school in Ellesborough, and was built in 1839 in the local traditional style; a mixture of mellow red brick and bright knapped flint. The architect was Edward Buckton-Lamb, who also designed some additions to Chequers including the gatehouse at the top of Missenden Road and Prestwood Parish Church.
The Centre was formerly part of the Chequers estate but is now owned and run by Girlguiding Buckinghamshire. It is self-financing and is maintained by a small volunteer committee.
We are not able to take Bookings for Ellesborough Guide Centre at present due to coronavirus. Once we are open for bookings again please book via the bookings website.
We are going to do a full renovation of the site over the next couple of years, providing updated and improved accommodation and facilities to be enjoyed by new generations of Girlguiding members.
Please take a moment to look at our Fund Raising booklet, full of ideas. Can you help us reach our goal by donating. The smallest amounts added together will make our upgrade happen. Thank you
