We booked this location as part of a trip up the Thames on our boat for a long weekend. I called ahead to check where it was relative to the river at Maidenhead, as my wife has some mobility issues and we needed somewhere easy to get to by taxi, and with easy access once we were there.
Caroline ( the owner) was very helpful on the phone, took charge and said she was putting us in Cottage 4 which was part of a self catering annexe next to the main (guest) house. We ended up with a beautifully appointed studio cottage with its own outside patio area and views over countryside, Caroline's garden, and her chicken run (fresh eggs available at £1.80 for 6!!).
The attention to detail in the cottage was fantastic, from the thoughtfully stocked fridge for morning breakfast, to the choice of quality toiletries in the bathroom.
On a more personal note, I have had insomnia problems in recent times, but I slept fully 9 hours in Cottage 4 on the single night we were there. Thank you, Caroline, and I am really sorry that it made us an hour late checking out on Sunday morning!
