My wife and I spent three lovely days in this excellently appointed cottage with our daughter and two granddaughters while one of the girls was taking part in a large national rowing event at nearby Eton Dorney. It is ideally located just off the main street in Eton and within a minute's walk of the Thames. Windsor Castle is also within very easy walking distance. The cottage exudes olde worlde charm, yet has been equipped and furnished with delightful modern touches. The owner's previous life as the owner of an interior design and furnishings shop in the town is evident throughout. Her attention to detail and customer care also extended to the provision of a basket of 'goodies' - bread, milk, butter, jam, ham, biscuits, cheese straws, tea, coffee, red wine and Prosecco - to greet our arrival, a lovely touch that was very greatly appreciated. All in all, a most satisfying experience and one we would recommend to anyone thinking of spending a few days exploring this historic area.
Fantastic location & property! Able to walk everywhere & also nice & peaceful. They have thought of everything you might need, very clean throughout,home from home comforts from lovely bedding to sky TVs, numerous DVD's & books & toys. Would definitely visit again.
Bridget's charming apartment is a situated in a very pretty, private alley off High Street, Eton, a very short walk over the Thames, away from the busy Windsor Castle and surrounds. The apartment is well-appointed with quality fittings and appliances. It offers off-street parking which was essential to us. The bedrooms and bathroom are upstairs in the loft of the building. My son and I are both over 6' and couldn't move around upright in the upstairs space. We are used to 100% cotton sheets and large bath towels/sheets, so it was a little disappointing that this premium apartment didn't offer this. However, this didn't detract from out overall enjoyment of our stay.
This is a gorgeous quaint property off Eton High Street. Bridget B was so helpful on our arrival and through our stay 26th to 31st July 2017. She warmly welcomed us. Its the little touches that make a holiday special. Had everything you would require including a generous hamper to start us off. The location is excellent, old world mixed with modern living. This property is within walking distance of Windsor, its Castle, shopping, good restaurants and shows. Train station is also within walking distance. So relaxing to walk by the river and parks areas. A river boat tour is recommended. Will definitely return in the not to distant future. I would highly recommend this fab cottage.
This is a beautifully maintained property just off Eton High Street. It is very convenient to the train station from which you can get a direct train to Waterloo. It is within walking distance of Windsor and there are lots of very good restaurants nearby.
The property itself was in immaculate condition and has everything which we required. Bridget had kindly provided a generous hamper on our arrival which was greatly appreciated.
Stayed for three nights with my Mum, sister and niece in the middle of a September heatwave. The place is full of character, as it is Grade 11 listed. There was a very generous welcome basket of goodies awaiting us, and the cottage was immaculately clean and well appointed. The beds were very comfortable, and Bridget showed us around at the start, so we knew where spare linens etc were kept. The location could not have been better for us- a short stroll to the bridge to Windsor and the Castle.. Numerous pubs and restaurants on Eton High Street (The George and Don Beni's were great), and Bridget was immediately available to drop in a light bulb that we needed. She was very helpful and friendly.
Now, I do feel I have to point out a few slight "negatives".. The parking is extremely tight, in a small courtyard...and we had to reverse all the way back out around a house/little lane..no good if you have a large 4 wheel drive. There is space for one car only, so we had to park our other car in the very handy car park opposite, which cost £10 a day. Also, the staircase has no handrail and, as you might expect from an old property, is a bit uneven. My mum coped reasonably well, but if you have anyone who is a bit unsteady or disabled in any way, they may struggle. The advert states two bathrooms, but in fact it is one main bathroom plus a separate loo/ basin. This wasn't a problem for us, but we may not have booked, had we known!
All that said, we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay, and would recommend this place to anyone. Bridget has made sure that every piece of crockery suits the property and it really did feel like you were staying somewhere special .
