                                                                                                      I've book this place to celebrate my 40th with a group of 16 friends. From the beginning, Penny was very attentive and accommodating. Initially we were planning on staying 2 nights but due to the summer season we had to book 3 nights (but Penny was very generous and gave us an great discount). The house is even more amazing than looking in the photos. It is decorated to such a high standard that it makes you feel very special. The Sonos sound system with speakers that can be controlled individually was fab.. The cinema is just unbelievably beautiful. We also used the Arctic House in the back garden to grill marshmallow after our BBQ by the hot tube. Penny has left towels and hotel style toiletries for each guest. I added some chocolate to the guests bedroom and some 'thank you' signs with their names at each bedroom door and they felt pampered. The hot tube is big enough and very pleasant. If you use is constantly (as we did) by the third day you may need to change the water (it would be good to have some instruction about how to do it). The bedrooms have a great sound isolation and everyone could sleep very well. It would be better to have double beds that could be separated in twins if needed as we had single friends that unfortunately had to share beds. The kitchen is well equipped and we made a great use of the wine fridge. I would suggest that an espresso machine, with capsule system, would have been a plus ;) Enough parking for several cars and great taxi system in case you want to go out and have a feel drinks. We even had the fireplace on. The woodland area is very pretty. We had lobster lunch on Friday at the Bird in Hands pub (In Sonning Common) and this was just delicious (with fresh lobster from Cornwall). It was a pleasant 40 minutes walking there from the house (http://www.birdinhandsonningcommon.com). At the check out they were very relaxed and we left the house without any pressure. The check in at 10am and check out at 6pm allowed us to enjoy a full 4 days of luxury celebrations. On Sunday we had a short drive to Henley-on-Thames and for 99 pounds we could hire a luxury Olympic Class launch with Hobbs (http://www.hobbsofhenley.com/olympic-class-launches) and spent 1 hour cruising that exclusive area. You can bring your own champagne on board and one of our friends was self driving the boat for us. We are def considering returning there in the future. Everyone loved it! Pure hedonism!

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Very tastefully presented, appointed and maintained. Clean and modern. Really felt like home for 2 weeks. I had everything I needed. Set in a beautiful private family property down a country lane (you need a car), but a very short drive to the local town. Best of both worlds. The owners could not have been more charming, friendly and helpful. Hampshire is a great location to base yourself to explore the charm and history of southern England. We had several trips into London, to the beach, and in land and to many historic places of interest. The local villages have lovely traditional old English country pubs, with wonderful gardens to eat and socialise. A top quality apartment providing the perfect stay. I can highly recommend this apartment, and will certainly stay again when I return.

Easy train access to London but property is in a lovely quiet area with all the amenities required for a relaxing break. Apartment was spotless and very well serviced. Owner was very helpful.
