There is information to help you on the ancestors page.

How can I find out more about the history of my house

There is information about a number of the more significant houses on this site. The page about Pollards Wood area in particular does go into some detail about sources and which you might find useful. To an extent it does depend on how old your house is and house much you have as archives to help you on the way. It is worth bearing in mind that post 1900 the building control evolved so see the appendix on that subject page.

Why is there nothing about the main attractions of Chalfont St Giles such as Milton's Cottage.

There is lots of information already available on the web so by design this site does not try to duplicate what can be found through a simple search. Some places to look are given here on the sources page and the books page.
