We had a fantastic time staying at the Old Cottage. Jenny and Graham couldn't have been more welcoming, the house itself is lovely and we stayed in the King sized bedroom which was great, nice en suite and the bed was unbelievably comfortable! The cottage itself is no more than a 10 minute walk from the river and you can walk into either Bourne End or Cookham very easily for lots of different restaurants either on the river itself or on the village high streets. Marlow is also about a 5 minute drive away which offers lots more options and is also stunning, we had a great afternoon/evening there.
We wondered into Cookham for supper and ate at a place on the river called The Ferry which Graham and Jenny had recommended to us, it had a great menu which was far more adventurous than you'd expect to find in a village pub and was very lively. We decided to walk there as it was a nice evening and Graham had told us that if it started to rain he's come and pick us up rtaher than have to walk back and get wet! Thankfully we didn't have to even think about taking him up on it, but that just gives an indication of the kind of people they were! Really great hosts. I hope we'll be coming back.
