The Old Wharf Cottage is a beautiful thatched riverside retreat nestled between two islands on the picturesque banks of the River Thames. Situated minutes from the historic towns of Windsor and Eton as well as just 40 minutes from the attractions of central London. Watch the river go by in your own private heated pool or enjoy dining al fresco on the shaded patio or inside in the large open plan kitchen and dining room. The Old Wharf Cottage was originally built in 1903 in the Edwardian, Arts and Crafts era. It has been lovingly maintained to a high standard. Situated on a large plot and boasting riverside lawns stretching down to a second patio by the river Thames bank. You enter the house through the main entrance hall which also leads upstairs via the solid oak staircase. Once upstairs there is a substantial, king-sized bed, en-suite room, with riverside views and balcony. There is one further large en-suite twin room, as well as good sized twin and double rooms with access to a full size family bathroom. All three bathrooms are state of the art with walk in showers and the family bathroom also has a full length bath. A highlight of this house is the last double room, which is attached to the side of the house on 17th century brick pillars and is constructed out of 19th century beams from one of the first pioneering ships bound for Australia and contains beautiful carvings and unique features from this era. The whole house is double glazed and centrally heated making it perfect for year around breaks. Downstairs consists of a fully stocked kitchen and breakfast bar with both an AGA and an electric cooker and an open plan dining room which seats 10, perfect for entertaining or cooking large family meals. There are two further lounges adjacent to the kitchen, one west facing, overlooking the river Thames, while the other provides a relaxing area equipped with a faux coal electric fire and flat screen tv with Sky and Netflix and a grand piano. There are multiple board games available, as well as an outdoor ping pong table and croquet set. There is also a multipurpose play area for younger children, in the riverside garden, which as the pool, is fenced in. Young children should still be supervised. The 10m by 4m pool is heated from April to October and the river side decking area provides the perfect place for relaxing. As does the garden, backing directly onto the river Thames. There are multiple pool floats and lilos to help you relax and wind down. Please ask about the availability of the pool outside of the summer months The riverside views are a real highlight of this property, positioned between two small islands, this is a beauty spot with fantastic opportunities for bird watching or just enjoying the river and letting its gentle bustle float by. Local swans and ducks are daily visitors. We can also help organise boat trips to explore the Thames. There is ample private parking for multiple cars to the rear of the property, surrounded by picturesque cottage gardens in two separate parking areas. We have good rail links close by, from both Slough and Sunnymeads rail stations to central London taking approximately 18 and 40 minutes to Paddington and Waterloo Stations. Providing easy access to all of London's central attractions including Oxford street, the Natural History museum, Westminster Abbey, The Tower of London, the Houses of Parliament and much more. There are good air links from Heathrow (15mins) and Gatwick (45mins) and convenient transport links exist to both. Windsor is only 7 minutes away by car with access to places of interest such as Windsor Castle, the Magna Carta, RAF and JF Kennedy memorials at Runnymede, 15th century Eton College, Legoland and Windsor Racecourse as well as a host of restaurants and other attractions. The village's local pub 'the George' is within a short walking distance and is a highly rated cosy eatery, perfect for a Sunday roast, recommended booking in advance. The Old Wharf Cottage is a beautiful riverside holiday retreat and is perfect for families and large groups. 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 10. We look forward to hearing from you.More
