Pixie Place was one of the best vacation experiences of our lives. All of the modern amenities expected today are in place here in Old Windsor's Pixie. The owners went out of their way to accommodate our somewhat unusual arrival schedule, making our holiday more productive and enjoyable. The location was convenient to access the South of England with easy approach to the Motorways and attending system. This will help make this visit to the UK most memorable and we have made at least 18-20 others.

Our riverside "Pixie Place" is adored by all of our guest who have experienced
this well appointed and luxury house set in such beautiful surroundings.
The easy access to central Windsor, central London, London Heathrow Airport, Lego-Land
and the motorway networks is ideal for visitors who wish to visit the surrounding attractions or hop over to Europe as so many of our pasts guests do.
We are delighted our guests also appreciated the high quality of our service we aim to
deliver to each and every one of our valued guests.

“Pixie Place - Our second time here and hopefully not our last !”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We are a group of friends that stay in the area every June, and Pixie Place has become our 'home from home' for the last two years.

The property is located on Ham Island, in Old Windsor near the lock, and has delightful view to the rear of the property over the weir and on onto the Thames. It's quite rural, but still just 5-10 mins drive to the shops.

You can enjoy the view from the properties spacious accomodation, including a large open plan lounge/dining room, with two large sofas and round dining table suitable for 6 diners in comfort. There is also a huge conservatory with another two sofas and a couple of easy chairs, with windows overlooking the weir. Finally the outside deck space with wooden patio furniture is a delightful place for breakfast, especially on a sunny day.

The kitchen is well equipt for those that want to 'eat in' (as we usually do) with lots of pots and pans, gas hob and electric oven, microwave and a large fridge freezer - There's plenty of glassware and cutlery around too. The Windsor farm shop is just 5 mins drive, where you can stock up of some real quality produce from the Windsor estate, or of course just arrange a delivery from Waitrose/Sainsburys to save you the hassle. Theres a local Co-op convenience store 5 mins away or a larger Tesco Express in the next village of Datchet, just a 10 mins drive.

There's a separate study too, if you have to do some work to do whilst you are away (something I personally try to avoid though) ;-)

The sleeping accomodation is excellent, with a large roomy double bedroom with en suite shower room to the ground floor, good wardrobe space and lots of drawers. To the first floor there are two further bedrooms (one double and one twin) with a family bathroom. A Z bed is also stored in the larger double bedroom for an extra guest.

Communication with the owners is swift and efficient, (by email usually), we have always found Nael and Angela helpful and courteous at all times.

Can't really fault anything - hope to return again in 2015 for our third consecutive year.

Wow! Wow! Wow!

What a wonderful home and what a lovely couple the owners are. This property is superior in every respect, beautiful furnishings, fantastic views and extremely comfortable, we wanted for nothing.

Believe me when I say that the photos and previous reviews of Pixie Place do not do it justice.

“Beautifully appointed immaculate 'home from home' on the Thames in a convenient location to all attractions.”

Everything about Pixie Place exudes comfort in a delightfully appointed immaculate decor with every upscale amenity aptly provided in a peaceful and beautiful setting on the river Thames in Old Windsor. We particularly enjoyed relaxing in the light-filled conservatory watching the swans and ducklings and the various boats that drifted along the river. The location affords easy access to all the local attractions, and walks along the river nearby the house were a scenic delight. Plush towels and designer linens, appliances, comfortable furnishings, decor, lighting, kitchen appointments, tourist brochures, informational booklet, fabulous shower and bath facilities,off street parking, even binoculars!... and so much more awaits anyone who has the opportunity to stay at Pixie Place. We have been refreshed by this 'home from home' and look forward to a return visit in the future.

We work very hard to ensure our guests experience the best of everything, excellence is our aim and our efforts are more than worth it when we receive such delightful reviews. Pixie Place is an enchanting property for relaxation alone and a welcome retreat when used as your base while visiting surrounding areas...Central London, Legoland, central Windsor and Heathrow airport are all with in easy reach.

“Pixie Place - Perfect”
Reviewed 13 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

people found this review helpful

We arrived on a very cold Easter saturday to find a lovely spacious, clean and very well equipped house.

The view from the Conservatory was very relaxing, watching the river meander by.

The house is in good proximity to Old Windsor with a good Co-op supermarket, that is well stocked, and some good family restaurants. Its location, on a island in the river, and at the end of a country road means whilst it is very tranquil a car is recommended for travelling around.

We travelled into London from Datchet station which is only 5 minutes away and has sufficient all day parking.

There is plenty to see close at hand, especially Windsor and the Castle.

The house is an ideal place to return home to each evening as it is so comfortable. Our son has autism and enjoyed having the space to move around whilst we were able to relax knowing that he was in a safe environment.

The booking process was handled well by the owners and the website was particularly helpful in allowing us to show our son where we were going so that he would be relaxed and helped him settle quickly.

It is certainly a property we would visit again, though perhaps in warmer weather to allow us to better advantage of the available walks in the surrounding countryside and watch the boats going through the lock on the other side of the river.

We're delighted to know our guests enjoyed all that Pixie Place has to offer.
While we do recommend a car, details of a reliable taxi company can be found amongst the information leaflets upon our guests' arrival.
The location and position of Pixie Place holds so many advantages...peaceful walks, stunning views at all times of the year, boat trips, quick and easy access into central London, Heathrow airport and of course, central Windsor.
