I would recommend this holiday home to anyone visiting London and outer areas.
Fantastic for Windsor and Ascot and of course Lego Land.

Fantastic Home with excellent furnishings and top of the range electronics.

“Well presented, well appointed and well situated”
Reviewed 22 March 2015 for a stay in January 2015

A comfortable and excellent base for the Thames Valley. Sue and Steve were very welcoming and helpful. The cottage was warm and friendly and with the wood burner going, a wonderful escape from the English winter. We had no complaints about the property or the facilities.

It was also very handy for major routes, 5 minutes from the A4 and 10 from the M4 and, on a quiet day only 35 minutes from Heathrow. We were visiting relatives in the area but if we had been tourists we could have found ample places of interest to visit even in January.

The local pub is excellent. Good, reasonably priced food and a great selection of beers. Best of all it was within crawling distance.

Will not hesitate to go back

“Convenient location, very neat, very good amenities.”
Reviewed 8 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Close to Heathrow but out of London in a small village, which makes accessing chosen destinations easy.
A previous reviewer stated military standards of cleanliness - I agree - keep it up as it is definitely in your favour!
We stayed here with small children and it was a pleasure, as well as safe for them, with everything we needed to have a comfortable stay, including a washing machine to wash kids clothes, underfloor heating, very fast internet access etc.
We will be back and spread the word to our friends interested in staying in the same part of England.
Steve also went out of his way to help me with additional logistics of our stay, unrelated to the property.
Thank you Steve!

“Great place”
Reviewed 15 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

A beautifully refurbished cottage in a Classic English village setting, next to the church and opposite the pub. Obviously fixtures inside were high quality and everything you would need for a restful stay, great log burner. Highly recommend.

“Very comfortable and exactly as described”
Reviewed 8 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Very comfortable cottage with all required amenities. Nice owners who left us alone but we're available when needed. Only slight issue is automatic gate which wasn't as automatic as it could be. Would certainly recommend though.
