A group of 14 of us stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate a birthday. We found the house and the location both amazing and beautiful. It clearly has a homely feel to it which makes it even more of a special place to stay. Although the weather outside was not great, we managed to still enjoy the countryside,...

I live in Los Angeles with my wife who is a scriptwriter and I produce films. We came to The Copse with 5 other Californian couples for a wedding in the summer. It was a perfect choice. Our guests are still talking about it. We made the most of the house and garden, cooking on the terrace, evening drinks in...

About the neighborhood
Kidmore End is a typical English village with a pub and small supermarket, a fish and chip shop which is highly recommended and an Indian restaurant which does excellent take away.

There is a small late opening store and a large Waitrose supermarket five minutes away that also delivers to the house.

Taxis are easy to come by either to the house or outside Reading Station. It is a 5 minute ride from the station to the house.

Above all Mill Lane is a quiet and peaceful country road with almost no traffic as it serves a dozen or so houses only and is not suitable for heavy vehicles being single track. The property is securely fenced so dogs and humans cannot arrive in your garden unexpectedly, but you are surrounded by deer and muntjac, red kites, heron, ducks and we keep a small herd...
Getting around
If you do not wish to drive, taxis are excellent and the main Reading train station is 5 minutes away with fast trains across the country. London Paddington in 25 minutes...
Car advised
How to get there
It is best to avoid Reading in the rush hour and come through Henley on Thames if you are arriving from London. You reach this turn off sooner than Reading if you are on the M4 or M40 and you then have a 15 minute journey across country to Kidmore End.

If you arrive by train there are plenty of black cabs at the station whatever time of day or night.
