Exceptionally well appointed and great location

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing find - Shahid and Yasmin have thought of every detail in this apartment. 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.

Lovely stay in a lovely town with lovely people

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin?

Henley-on-Thames is a beautiful town on a winding river, filled with kind people, historic sights, plentiful shopping, an abundance of flowers, and delicious food and beverage offerings. (The Ale Trail is pretty fun, too!) There is plenty in Henley to keep one occupied, but with some time and wanderlust, the traveler is within easy reach of London, the Cotswold, and many other places of interest. We did some wandering and loved coming back to our home each evening.

The studio apartment is impeccable-clean, well-appointed, and stocked with everything the traveler needs for a comfortable stay. Really-everything! We were treated to a wide selection of breakfast options, with all the ingredients and tools we needed to dine in luxury. The bathroom is stocked with accouterments. And then there's that mattress-better than any I've slept on in my life. Along with the pretty wood floor, full kitchen, and tasteful decorating, we felt quite spoiled. The location is also perfect, providing just a 10 minute walk to the town center.

Best of all are hosts Shahid and Yasmin whose warm and generous hospitality make this the only place we would think of staying in Henley. Thank you Shahid and Yasmin for a wonderful vacation, and for welcoming us into your family.

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. From what we had read in advance, we were anticipating good things - previous reviews had been good, the description of the accommodation seemed to be just what we were looking for – but I have to say that our expectations were exceeded. The accommodation matched up to its billing; I guess that is to be expected, but it’s not always met. The “wow factor” came with the standard of specification (the studio apartment is well laid out, nicely furnished and has all the features and appliances you could wish for), and the extras that were provided. The owner provides all sorts of food, condiments, toiletries and kitchen necessities that make a stay so easy, it’s just like being at home. It’s clear that much thought and planning has gone into making this not only a comfortable and well-spec’d studio apartment, it really is a mini “home from home”. Ideal for a short stay, it’s only a short stroll from the centre of Henley (10-15 mins max); and we’d happily stay again. Thank you!

The property is a converted double garage with it's own front door and the most comfortable bed!!

  • 4 of 5

Myself and three friends had weekend tickets for the Rewind Festival, we have camped in previous years but wanted somewhere we could have a clean toilet and warm shower without having to queue for ages.

This property was amazing!!

Although it's only a studio apartment it has everything you could ever need and was certainly more spacious than a tent and accommodated the four of us perfectly for three nights.

We were so relieved to be able to have a warm shower and dry our hair after standing in the rain for hours on the Sunday evening.

Couldn't imagine going back to a damp tent with nowhere to hang our soaked clothes.

On that note the hairdryer was fantastic! Not like some you get when you're away where you could dry your hair quicker by blowing on it yourself.

The kitchen had so much food in it, more than my own at home!!

We all had a filling breakfast every morning, there was lovely bread in the bread bin, an excellent full fruit bowl, croissants, pain au chocolate, fruit juices, bacon, sausages, eggs and so much more than you would ever expect.

In the bathroom there are lots of different types of shower gels, shampoos, conditioners etc.

The bed is a Tempur, super king size and is so comfortable you can't help but having a restful nights sleep.

The sofa bed is a double size and was quite hard which suited two of us who prefer a firm mattress.

The owner Shahid is a really lovely man who was so helpful with advice on directions to where we needed to go and provided us with anything we needed, i.e. extra towels, toilet rolls etc. nothing seemed too much.

The house is situated in a quiet road and is a 10/15 minute walk into town.

We highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again in the future.

Thank you again Shahid and family😊

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay, plenty of room for a studio apartment and everything you need is provided. Henley on Thames is a perfect English country town and this apartment is an easy walk to downtown where there is lots of shopping and restaurants and the river activities. Also you can walk to the train which will take you to London or anywhere you need to go. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions.

When Henley on Thames throws a party the world notices. This is a town with an international reputation for the world's greatest rowing regatta, the 'joie de vivre' of the summer arts festival plus 80's music feast Rewind to measure up to. And Henley respects tradition.

A 12th century South Oxfordshire market town, Henley's historic heart sits a few strides from the river Thames. The main street has many Georgian frontages covering older buildings and among the 300 buildings within the town designated 'of special architectural or historical interest' are St Mary's church, the town hall, market place and Henley Bridge. Pick up '10 Brilliant things to do', the Henley Environment Trail, the 'Henley Trail' the Henley Town Map or the Visit Midsomer - Southern Trail leaflets to provide more inspiration.

Henley's riverside location – surrounded by a Chiltern landscape of wooded hills and green fields – lends itself to relaxation, long lunches and power shopping. There's a pub where Charles I drank, a Chantry house, a butcher that smokes his own bacon and shops still offering a personal touch.

This is a town dedicated to enjoying the river. So bring a picnic, pick up a copy of Wind in the Willows and settle for an hour on the waterfront. Watch others messing about on the river, or hire a boat and join in the fun – the summer straw boater and stripy blazer combo is optional.

Claim to Fame:

The Royal Regatta and Music and Arts Festival are established highlights of the English social season and give Henley an international reputation but did you know that both Dusty Springfield and George Harrison lived in Henley-upon-Thames until their untimely deaths?

Five things to do in Henley on Thames:

Visit the River and Rowing Museum – and greet statues of two great Olympians Sir Steve Redgrave and Sir Matthew Pinsent

Go rowing or take a boat trip – enjoy the famous regatta course relaxing on a river cruise or energetically in a rowing boat all with one of Henley's oldest companies, Hobbs of Henley or if you want a a one-off Henley Rowing Experience try The Henley Rowing Association - beginners welcome!

Walk along the Thames Path – the route to Hambleden lock is 2.5 miles long or take a guided tour around the town.

Attend a performance at Kenton Theatre - one of the oldest performing theatres in the country

Take afternoon tea – a perfect brew teamed with either scones and jam or a slice of cake

Four things to do near Henley on Thames:

Stonor Park - home of Lord and Lady Camoys, one of England's oldest manor houses has a fine collection of contemporary ceramics

Grey's Court – National Trust run 16th-century mansion and tranquil gardens with outstanding 18th century plasterwork

The Herb Garden – specialist Herb nursery and Saxon Maze with a mile of curving grass pathways

Nuffield Place - visit the time-capsule home of the philanthropist William Morris, Lord Nuffield, the founder of Morris Motor Cars and one of the richest men in the world.

What's on in Henley on Thames:

Henley could easily be renamed Festival-on-Thames for the number and variety of annual arts, sports and traditional events hosted in and around the town.

Each summer 'Henley Reach' sees the world's elite rowers compete at the Royal Regatta. They are cheered on by spectators enjoying the sport, the champagne and the strawberries. Enclosure dress code is strictly enforced yet non-enclosure spectators can equally soak up the occasion and encourage the crews. It's free to watch from the riverside so pick your spot well.

Henley Festival of Music and Arts attracts some of the world´s top entertainers to perform on a floating stage in front of a dinner-jacketed audience. Mixing classical, jazz and popular music, the festival also includes exhibitions of art and sculpture.

Remember to also look out for the fabulous Henley Fringe where many performers hone their acts for Edinburgh; Henley Literary Festival one of the preeminent festivals on the circuit, attracting a host of famous authors, and the 80's Rewind Festival.


Henley is situated in the county of Oxfordshire, in South East England. It is within short distance of some of England's busiest cities, including London, Reading and Oxford. Henley is also easily accessible, being only 30 minutes from Heathrow Airport, 20 minutes from multiple motorways and having rail and bus links with many towns and cities, including those said above.
