Cottage was perfect, everything we expected and more. Everything you need for a self catering holiday. Six of us stayed for my wife Lorraines 50th birthday. Very comfy king sized beds. Location excellent for a short stroll into town. Amanda was a great hostess, very helpful without being too intrusive. We bumped into her and partner Matt at the festival and they spent a while chatting to us which was really nice. All in all it was a wonderful stay and we hope to return sometime in the future.
We just returned from a 4 week vacation at Amanda’s beautiful house in Henley-on-Thames. The house is set back off the Main Street and provides a lovely tranquil atmosphere for a relaxing stay. All the rooms were set out perfectly and the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need for an extended holiday. We were lucky enough to have excellent weather during our time here and the courtyard was fabulous for enjoying sunny afternoons.
Amanda was very helpful during the booking process and whilst we were there. The perfect balance of attention without being intrusive.
The Thursday morning market is a real treat and although we had hired cars it was lovely to have such close access to the train station too.
Excellent accommodation, location and host! Thank you so much Amanda.
I booked this for my wedding to house bridesmaids and to get ready. We enjoyed having a big space to get ready and chill out before the big day. This cottage is lovely and clean, it has useful items in the kitchen so lots of nice touches.
When we checked out I left my respectable bridesmaids to check out but we received a list saying of things that wasn't left perfect during our stay we had moved the furniture but we put back on check out and Amanda spotted we left the lights on & didn't double lock the door, we were a bit miffed to be honest as we thought we could use the space how we wanted during our rental and respected the rules that were emailed over. We were charged £24 of our deposit for cleaning afterwards as we forgot to empty the bedroom bins and the kitchen had a few items in the fridge.
Less that perfect but we did try and given the high cost of rental should already be factored to her costs and not charged after. It's a lovely place but just be aware as it is so nice you will need to meet the high standards.
This cottage is a real find. Set back from the rest of the world in its own private alley (bar the owners home next door), this characterful property has been brought back to life with care and attention. Once a derelict ex-residence for a pump house worker (I believe)... it is now homely, inviting and incredibly comfortable. The attention to detail in creating a happy place to stay is evident throughout. This is definitely our bouncy host’s place and it was a joy to be her paying guest.
The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was huge, complete with free standing bathtub. The hot water never runs out and and the dining room was perfect for board games (as well as eating food cooked in the very well laden adjoining kitchen).
Six of us adults and one child had more than enough space to cohabit without conflict. In fact we got on incredibly well.
There is no question. If you’re considering a break here- book it!
We stayed in the house for a girls weekend. The house is in a perfect location and has all the creature comforts you need. The house is beautiful, I would definitely stay here again.
