Berkshire is a regal county located a little outside London.

The unspoilt rural landscapes provide a vast range of things to do in Berkshire. Holiday cottages in the Berkshire countryside are a sublime place to escape, and the perfect base for walking, riding and mountain biking holidays.

There are a great range of options for fishing from Berkshire holiday cottages.

History has left a huge mark on the Berkshire countryside. There are a vast range of historical attractions to explore from Berkshire property rentals, not least the Royal home of Windsor Castle.

The setting on the banks of the River Thames to the accommodation has to be experienced to fully appreciate all what the cottage has to offer. As you go through the gates you are welcomed by 2 different coloured sheep statues and a gorilla statue, wow. The pod, sauna and hot tub in the garden overlooking the river is a joy to relax in after being out and about all day. The plants and furniture in the garden are lovely and bring a wonderful ambience to it. A couple of reviews state that they are some weeds in the patio area, for goodness sake it's a garden, show me a garden without any weeds and I will buy a 'Steps' album. Inside the cottage is a wonderful home for all to enjoy. As my partner put it, every room is a work of art, it's a home that has been put together through years of love and with amazing music memorabilia of Andy Ellison ( one of the property owners) his wife Sharon, although we have only been in contact via email or messaging could not have made us feel more welcome than if she had been there to welcome us there on our arrival. My family and me just loved, loved, loved this cottage and we most certainly are going to return. Sharon and Andy you have an amazing home thank you for sharing it with us.

They were very accommodating and helpful. The annexe was clean, cosy and very comfortable. Lovely view over the gardens and fields. Well laid out kitchen with everything you could need for your stay. Loads of hot water and brilliant water pressure in shower also! This was an excellent base for our visit to the area. Only a few short miles to Legoland. Within easy driving distance of the Warner Bros Harry Potter studio tour. Plenty of local eateries, and a huge Tesco close by. Can't rate this place highly enough really. We were very sad to leave!
