Berkshire is a regal county located a little outside London. The strong Royal connections are a delight to explore, with stunning castles and palaces emerging from the quintessentially English landscapes. Berkshire, the Royal County, is home to the Queen and Windsor Castle, but the county is awash with rural attractions and beautiful landscapes which supply endless pleasure to those lucky enough to have access to Berkshire holiday rentals at any time of year.

Things to do in Berkshire

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. Beale Park is an especially popular place to visit from Berkshire accommodation, as the 400 acre parkland reserve is home to a fantastic range of British wildlife. The Ridgeway National Trails is one of the most exciting walking routes to take from Berkshire property rentals, showing walkers not only some of the most beautiful views in the county, but also a selection of the fascinating historical monuments of the county.

Fishing in Berkshire is fantastic. The River Thames and the River Ketting both run through the county, lined by charming rural villages and prominent castles, and offering magnificent stretches for trout fishing in Berkshire. 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 Iron Age Walbury Hill Fort, Brunel’s Railway Bridge, Highclere Castle and the beautiful Ashdown House are all well worth exploring from holiday cottages in Berkshire.

Beds were made up separately for the children (14 & 12) as requested which was perfect. We had a good size double. Good quality of bedding and towels. 2 bathrooms. Great wifi, parking in front of cottage. Key safe entry which I much prefer. Close to Thorpe Park, Windsor etc. Pub a few paces away- All good :)

Beautiful views, very spacious and stylish rooms that fit us all in well and a great location. Everyone was very happy, as it was everything we could want. Before the weekend I had been in contact with Davina and she had been very helpful in advising us for the weekend offering caterers and answering questions I had. She also left a lovely gift box for the bride to be which was a very thoughtful touch. We ran out of a few necessities (toilet roll and bin bags) over the weekend but this was not a reflection on the house or home owner but more 16 women!! I would definitely stay here again and recommended to anyone wanting to stay near Henley this house is awesome!
