From entering the gates to the property and looking across to the house I knew I had chosen the right venue. Some of my friends who came to celebrate with me were from the US and had never been out into the English countryside. The Copse was a truly enchanting venue for their first experience of the English countryside. I could tell you all about house and grounds but I think the easiest way to sum things up is imagine you have a good friend who says "use my house to have your party". The house is actually a home. A home which is well appointed and provides everything you need to relax and enjoy time with your friends. Hire this and you won't be disappointed!

The fridge and cupboards are stocked with everything you need - the provisions would last for a week! In addition there is shampoo, shower gel, shaving foam and a myriad of other items too many to enumerate. They are very warm and generous hosts. As mentioned by everyone else the bed is profoundly comfortable and this enabled us to sleep very soundly. The location couldn't be better - 10 minutes walk to the bridge and the centre of town. Henley is a delightful place to stay with many places of interest to visit nearby or just laze by the river and watch the pleasure boats and the rowers. We will definitely return. Thank you Shahid and Yasmin for such a wonderful few days.
