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

Travel to Berkshire

Berkshire accommodation is fantastically easy to reach from across the UK. Located a little outside London, the transport networks are phenomenal, with road and rail networks extensive, and hire cars easily obtained from any of the airports in the London area.

Beautiful property, stunning location, fab owners!! ❤️

5 of 5
Our group of 6 stayed for 3 nights at Rafts Cottage in September 2017, celebrating a few Birthdays. We had the most amazing time. Rafts Cottage is a beautiful, unique property. The decor is lovely & it has everything you need to be the perfect home from home. We loved the location right on the Thames, it was stunning. Christine was really very helpful & available if we had any questions. We explored Windsor & Eton, both of which have great places to visit, eat & drink. As a special treat, we had arranged to be collect from our personal dock & we sailed up the Thames for dinner in Bray. I'd highly recommend Rafts Cottage, we had the best time 👍👍💕

My friend and I and our 2 young boys stayed at Laurie's place as a stop over for Legoland. We hadn't planned it that way but we completely landed on our feet! Laurie and Tim couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. They had thought of everything even down to a loaf of bread, milk, butter and eggs in the fridge! The lodge itself is really cosy and clean, with plenty of space for 2 adults and 2 kids. The boys had a fantastic time in the pool and the grown ups had a fantastic time sitting by the side of it. We are just now looking for an excuse to come back. Thanks Laurie and Tim!
