The Windmill is actually in private property. The very best views are from the field on the other side of the hill. When you’re close up you can’t really see anything over the fence. It is a great landmark though and sits above the village.

After an evening, the night before, rewatching several episodes of ‘The Vicar Of Dibley’ (certainly a lightly, gentle amusing, warm comedy rather than being utterly hilarious), I randomly awoke, and thought - ‘what the hell!’ - and decided to drive, for just under an hour, from Esher to Turville, to see the idyllic location for myself.

It’s certainly a delight - a picturesque village - lovely cottages and fields. Had a good walk around for 90 minutes or so - and enjoyed this trip, very much.

Best view is actually from the bottom of the hill, but if you do want to scrabble up the chalky bank, it’s quite cool to see the windmill from the famous film.q

A great windmill in a perfect location. Wonderful for a picnic and so good to see still all the wild flowers. Can hardly believe I and my cousings used to taboggan down the very steep hill almost into the village alongside the schoolmistresses house.

Such a fab place to visit. Found the vicars house and church. Walked up the hill but decided to steep for the windmill. We had been out all weekend walking so decided halfway up would be sufficient enough. The view was amazing, it almost didn't look real it was just so picture postcard perfect. The wildlife was amazing, four red kites flying above us mingled in with swallows and all sorts of others. So glad we passed through.

Lovely hills for ramblers topped by the location for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang , Cobstone Mill. Great views from the top of the hill with a lovely village at the bottom made famous by TV and Film location such as The Vicar of Dibley, Mr Tom, Midsummer Murders, Little Britain

This tiny historic village is colorfully built of bricks and flint in clay with fossilized sea sponges, wooden beams painted black and local clay tiles. It is 5 miles from Henley- on -Thames and is a well-known filming site. Two examples: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and An Education.

The Cobstone Windmill is privately owned but was used in the television series Jonathan Creek. The picturesque church is the Vicar of Dibley's, with her house next door. The house was also in the film Goodnight, Mister Tom.

The Bull & Butcher pub appeared as The Chalk & Gun in Midsomer Murders. Turville was Midsomer Parver in the episodes Murder on St. Malley's Day and Straw Woman.

Cobstone Windmill is famous for being in the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. It’s a delightful but very steep walk but when you get up to the top you are rewarded with the most glorious views over Turville and the chilterns. If you have worked up an appetite then The Bull & Butche is a great family pub serving excellent pub food.

Looking down on the pretty village of Turville (location for the "Vicar of Dibley" TV series), unfortunately the windmill itself is private so not accessible. It's best seen from the bottom of the hill, but the steep climb to the top is worth it for the view. There are lovely walks all around this area.

Memories come flooding back as you visit this lovely place. On a blue sky day, you can see/visualise/imagine scenes from the movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang or Vicar of Dibley :)
