We have been searching for some time to find a place where as a family of 3 we can stay whilst we wait for a new house to be built nearby. Reading offers very little and the surrounding towns/villages seem to think that London prices for modest offerings is acceptable. We are both experienced travelers and on arriving at Blackbirds...

My wife and I were staying in the Henley on Thames / Goring area in order to visit a couple of National Trust properties. One of these, Grey's Court in Rutherfield Grey's is very highly recommended incidentally... Everything about Blackbirds Cottage was very good. The welcome was friendly and efficient from Kate the proprietress, and we were quickly regaled with...

We stayed at Blackbirds cottage for 1 night over the weekend. Our hostess, Kate, was extremely welcoming, friendly and catered to our every need. She allowed us to come and go as we pleased as there is a separate entrance. The room is very big, with plenty of seating, a reading area, large screen tv with sky, and a very...

After a long train journey I was thrilled to be shown up the quirky spiral staircase to my large, cosy room. So spacious with room to dance and exercise! Huge screen with Sky TV. Plenty of wardrobe space and thank goodness, a hairdryer. After showering I collapsed into bed and slept like a log - wonderfully comfortable and cosy. Smiles...

We booked this b and b following reading positive reviews. On arrival the building and surrounds were found to be lovely. On first glance the room was pleasant, however on closer inspection we were seriously disappointed. Half of the lights in the room had no bulbs, the cleaning was not fantastic and the shower room was in poor condition. The...

We'd already experienced this lovely bed and breakfast in May this year and were eager to return for another one night stay knowing exactly what to expect i.e.privacy with a spacious, spotless bedroom and delicious breakfast served in the downstairs dining room. Also a warm welcome from Kate. All this happened though Kate was about to leave with her family...

Blackbirds Cottage will remain in our memories for the welcoming, caring and friendly hosts, Jenny and Robin, who were on duty during our stay. Jenny was exceptional in her attention to detail in catering for a particular need of mine. The privacy offered at Blackbirds Cottage gives a particular balance to bed and breakfast accommodation, that is not easily found....

We stayed for just one night and would love to return and stay longer in this delightful bed and breakfast. From the moment we arrived when we were warmly welcomed by Kate and then her son kindly helped carry my (over large) bag up the spiral staircase, everything was perfect. The room is enormous, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The...
