“Beautiful home from home in the countryside”

person found this review helpful

Our family of three stayed at this beautiful cottage whilst our daughter was settling in to university nearby. It was extremely cosy and comfortable, whilst having contemporary high end fixtures and fittings and quality furnishings. Steve and Sue were very accommodating and excellent hosts throughout our stay. Although the cottage shares the same grounds as their home, our privacy was respected and we were able to relax and enjoy the cottage as if it were our own.
The location was fantastic for us, being a short drive in to Reading, as well as being close to fabulous restaurants, pubs and quality supermarkets. Day trips to Oxford and London were easily achievable from here too. We would highly recommend this property and wouldn't hesitate to book it again. All in all, it was a true home from home experience.

“EXCELLENT STAY IN BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE”
Reviewed July 4, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We only stayed for two nights - wish it could have been longer so we could explore the surrounding area.. From the moment we stepped inside we felt very much at home as we were welcomed by Steve the owner. The cottage was immaculate and If we are ever in this part of the country again we shall certainly be staying here.

“An amazing holiday rental ”
Reviewed June 12, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

If you ever want to visit Windsor, Legoland or the sights of London this is the perfect place to stay. It is situated near Tywford which has regular trains to Paddington and a Waitrose supermarket and is 10 minutes from Windsor. The cottage itself is amazing with everything you could possibly need and it was extremely clean and tidy. The booking process was very easy and the owners were really helpful. I would definitely return again.

Reviewed June 1, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

What a gem of a place. The photos really don't do this place justice. We needed somewhere to stay whilst taking our children to Legoland and I came across the wheelwrights on trip advisor. Modern, clean and cosy with all mod cons plus the added bonus of a great pup across the road. Somewhere we would definitely stay again! Thank you
