Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This is a fantastic high specification property in a lovely location, perfect for a large gathering. The dining conservatory which leads off the kitchen is a very sociable space, our party spent most of our time in there despite the very comfortable and welcoming lounge. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all of a high standard. My only suggestion would be to take some coathangers with you, there were only 2 in some of the rooms and not many more in the other rooms. March 2012.
  2. The accommodation was perfect for our large family and very comfortable. Everything we needed was there and we had a really great time. We could also recommend the local pub as they did us proud. Feb 2011.
  3. This was perfect for our family celebration. Although there were 16 adults in the party there was ample accommodation for everyone to feel comfortable and the rooms were such that we never felt at all crowded. Feb 2011.
  4. This is a large house in extensive grounds and river frontage. Ideal for a large family gathering covering an age range from 1 month to 74 years. July 2010.
  5. Particularly pleased with the reception by the owner, who proved extremely helpful and went out of her way to make our stay successful. Aug 2009.
  6. A wonderful holiday in a beautiful place. Aug 2008.
  7. Beautiful setting, loads of space, great for a friends get together. Excellent child friendly pubs very close by! Jan 2008.
  8. Excellent location with long garden down to the Thames, thoroughly enjoyed by children, adults and dogs! Spacious accommodation, very suitable for our large party. April 2007.
  9. The cottage was absolutely perfect and more than fully met my expectations and those of the rest of my party. Jan 2007.
  10. The house was lovely and spacious, it never felt crowded even with 16. The gardens were also great with plenty of room to play games or just get away from everyone else for a while. June 2007.
