Make a holiday rental property or holiday cottage in Berkshire your home away from home

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.

Places to visit in Berkshire

Reading, Berkshire’s county town, is a wonderful town, located right in the heart of the Thames Valley. Reading is a thriving town, with a great range of shopping, nightlife and entertainment to enjoy, as well as fantastic access and transport routes to every corner of the county.

Taking Berkshire accommodation in Windsor is always a popular option. The stunning Georgian and Victorian town is impossibly attractive, build around the famous Royal residence of Windsor Castle

Near to everything we wanted to see and do, mainly by bike, so could see the wonderful ness of the river path, Windsor great park (Virginia Waters area was spectacular and not crowded). Visited Kew, and Cliveden. Treated ourselves to a boat trip at Henley too. Local pub was great for beer in the garden, after full days. Weather was great so stayed in the garden in the evenings, can't fault a thing. If you get the chance, go to Holyport!

A completely independent, self contained apartment situated in lovely garden setting.Centrally heated . The kitchen was extremely well equipped. The king size bed was extremely comfortable. The owner was very helpful and lives on-site.
