Description from owner

Description

This beautifully furnished and comfortable home, hidden away in the centre of Henley, is unique in offering a secluded spot.

Down it's own leafy lane, the house has all creature comforts yet still maintains many of its' original features. The cottage is a private wing of a large detached house, and has it's own secluded courtyard garden and parking.

With 2 large bedrooms upstairs (one with a 6ft super-king bed, the other with a 5ft king-size bed that can split into 2 singles) and a tucked away small downstairs bedroom (double bed) with en-suite shower, this character home can sleep 6.

The main family bathroom upstairs has a roll-top bath and separate shower cubicle.

The traditional kitchen features a 3 oven range cooker, a double butler sink and is fully equipped with all modern needs; fridge, freezer, microwave, blender, washer dryer and dishwasher. The separate dining room seats 6 people and opens out onto a lovely courtyard..ideal for entertaining.

The unique location means you can enjoy complete peace right in the middle of the town - but you also don't need to worry about being noisy! The cottage is a discreet, romantic hide-away that only a few know exist.

Every effort has been made to ensure comfort; quality latex topped pocket sprung mattresses, smart TV's in 3 rooms (with Netflix, Amazon and various other players all ready to use), super fast broadband, black out curtains, goose and feather down duvets, 300+ thread count linens and Bosch/Miele appliances that won't let you down.

What's in the price??

Exclusive use of the 3 bedroomed Victorian wing and it's courtyard, free and private parking for 2 cars, a location that is hard to beat only minutes walk from the River and the Town Square.

You do not need to bring the kitchen sink with you.....

We provide freshly pressed quality bed linens, bath towels, table linens, tea-towels, bathroom soaps, shampoos and conditioners (all SLS and paraben free). A kitchen stocked with every pot, pan and serving dish you could need to entertain as well as many household sundries one usually has to buy when booking a self catering let.

We do allow children, but it's best to ask us first about ages as the house has some steps between each room; the cottage might not be ideal for toddlers or for the elderly. Anyone with mobility issues should enquire first so that we can discuss suitability.

Please look at our feedback and get in touch!

Getting around

Parking is famously a bit hard in Henley! The good news is that the cottage has two private car parking spaces allocated for guests and is only a short walk to the town square and river. (About 5 minutes) The station is a 10 minute walk where you can get a train to London and there are many bus routes (for example to visit Oxford) from the town square.

Interaction with guest

Guests are welcomed on arrival and offered advice regarding restaurants, travel, shopping etc. Amanda is available any time should guests require help.

House rules

We have a damage deposit of £300 that is required before guests arrive, and returned after their stay (should there be no damage).
Some of the old wooden floors downstairs are very soft and we ask ladies not to wear pin heels or stiletto heels on these floors. Moving furniture damages the floors and your deposit will be at risk. Any garbage left inside the property will incur costs.
Please close all windows and lock all the doors each time you leave the house.
Sorry that we don't allow pets.

“Lovely hideaway in central Henley”

Reviewed 12 Nov 2018

We stayed at Amanda’s cottage for 2 nights with family and friends, whilst visiting Henley for a family event. The cottage was absolutely gorgeous. Really well appointed with everything you could ask for. The decor and furnishings feel luxurious but homely so you can properly relax. Amanda has thought of everything with hair dryers in each bedroom, blankets to snuggle up with either out on the patio or on the sofa, toiletries like shower gel etc and there are lovely Victorian features. The cottage is close enough to Henley to walk in and out but is down a little track making it a totally peaceful get away. Amanda was incredibly helpful with frequent communication leading up to our stay and lots of knowledge and suggestions for the local area.

“Gorgeous typical English cottage in Henley”

Reviewed 3 Feb 2018

The cottage is located within a few minutes walking distance of Henley town, which has all the amenities and restaurants you need on your doorstep. We loved the cottage and so enjoyed out time there. The beds were extremely comfortable and the roll top bath in the bathroom was lovely. The kitchen was well equipped and it was great to have a well stocked larder which guests can use. The owner, Amanda, is great and so helpful if you want any recommendations for good local restaurants. If we were in the area in the future, we would definitely stay here again. Thank you Amanda for a fabulous stay.

Response from the owner No...thank YOU...for this lovely review. It's always such a treat to hear someone loves the cottage :)

“Wonderful long stay!”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2017

My daughters and I stayed for a month here at this gorgeous cottage right in the center of Henley as we needed to escape the heat of the Dubai desert where we permanently live. Everything we possibly needed was there at the cottage. The location was superb and having Amanda on hand was ace. My girls particularly enjoyed the Epsom Salts in their bath and the odd pedicure too...! Very luxurious! I cannot recommend the cottage highly enough and will be back again next year! Thanks Amanda!

Response from the owner Oh thank you Naomi...looking forward to welcoming you guys back next summer. Thank you so much for looking after the cottage so well.

“Lovely cottage and a great place”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2014

The cottage was lovely and very well maintained down a quiet laneway in Henley. Henley is a beautiful place and the house is just a few minutes walk from the town centre but away from all the noise of the town. Amanda was great and very welcoming. She gave us great tips on where to go and was always at the end of the phone if (and when!) we had any questions or problems.

Response from the owner Oh thank you for this lovely review, its so great to help people during their stay; where to go in and around town :)
