About Sandra Ingham
We are Jon and Sandra and we have decided to trek the world with our two daughters during each summer school holidays.
Sandra Ingham purchased this House in 2001
Why Sandra Ingham chose Bracknell
This property is our much loved home which we make available to share with you during the school summer holidays while we explore the world with our two growing daughters. We ask that you treat our home with care and only cat lovers need apply as our ginger tabby called Amba will need cuddles as well as food!
What makes this House unique
Our home is simply great for families. It backs onto the local school playing field so has nice open views. Some 50 paces from our front door is a park with play equipment for children. We have flowers so we leave out two hoses for watering them. We also have a cat called Amba who will need TLC and feeding. We have three TV sets, Sonos equipment, wifi, DVDs, gym equipment, books and family bikes and sports equipment in the garage, all for use at your own risk. We eat in the kitchen/breakfast room and there is also a separate dining room. For alfresco dining there are three sets of table and chairs dotted around the gardens.

Great Location and house!
The house is a fantastic ''home away from home' place to stay. Plenty of room and lots personal touches that make it such an enjoyable experience.
The owners are fantastic people to communicate with and are more than willing to offer advice for things to do in the surrounds.
The little park and walking areas only 100metres away was great to help entertain our young children!
We had a fantastic week there and would highly recommend this property to families.
Home from home
We chose this property as the location was convenient for Heathrow and central to our family and friends. The house was big and comfortable and well kept, the price very reasonable for the amenities offered. Great location for local attractions and convenient for motorways or rail into London. Bonus point for the shy cat that made an occasional visit during our stay!
