Not omitting that Henley is surrounded by the stunning Chiltern landscape. There are 15 golf clubs within 20 miles, a vineyard in the Chilterns, and a butcher in the town who smokes his own meat! It's win win on the food front, as you can choose from a vast number of great restaurants and pubs, all within short walking distance.

You can enjoy the privacy of your own charming walled garden. The cottage is a much loved family home, and has everything that is needed for modern living. It was completely redecorated and designed in 2016, and we have put a huge amount of effort into the home to ensure you enjoy it, and have such a fantastic stay. We hope that you don't want leave, you love it so much.

For rainy days, there is a huge selection of board games, art supplies, a wide screen TV, WIFI, with Freeview channels.

It sleeps 6 comfortably in 3 bedrooms, and there is also a sofa-bed in the living room. The whole house has been tastefully re-decorated and furnished with antiques, and brand new mattresses in each room.

The back garden patio and beautiful lawn enjoys the sun late into the evening and has a small shed with sun chairs and a barbecue grill. Your meals can be enjoyed outside, weather permitting. The place is great for families, or for friends having a great time in a gorgeous cottage in a relaxed and charming English town.

Location description from owner

The England region

When Henley on Thames throws a party the world notices. This is a town with an international reputation for the world’s greatest rowing regatta, the ‘joie de vivre’ of the summer arts festival plus 80's music fest Rewind to measure up to. And Henley respects tradition.

A 12th century South Oxfordshire market town, Henley’s historic heart sits a few strides from the river Thames. The main street has many Georgian frontages covering older buildings and among the 300 buildings within the town designated 'of special architectural or historical interest' are St Mary’s church, the town hall, market place and Henley Bridge.

The Holy Trinity CofE Church is beside the house, read more about it here;

Since the Holy Trinity church was opened in 1848, it has been the focal point of worship in the parish. During this period the world has seen much political unrest and social and economic change, including two world wars. The church has provided parishioners with a centre of fellowship and spiritual refuge.

The building of the Holy Trinity church was completed in 1848 at a cost of about £2,000. The original church was rather like a large tunnel, the door was on the north side facing Greys Hill and the ventilation was poor. The nave presumably had one central aisle with the font situated at the west end. It is believed that a harmonium provided the music before an organ was installed in the south-west corner. The lighting was by gas; it was not until 1929 that electric lighting was installed. The Infants' School in Greys Hill (opposite the top of the churchyard) was probably used as a Sunday school.

The church was opened in 1848 as a daughter church is the parish of Rotherfield Greys, but Holy Trinity became a parish in its own right in 1849. The parish at that time has a population estimated at 1,000; today it is more than 7,500 comprising the larger part of Henley-on-Thames.

The church building was enlarged in 1891 to cater for the growing population on Henley. The enlargement retained its decoration of flint and stone to match the original design of Benjamin Ferrey.

The interior was re-ordered in 1987 to leave the present flexible arrangement, much enjoyed by congregation and community alike.
