Rose Cottage - Listed 16th Century Cottage

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


About the property

This charming detached Grade ll listed 16th Century cottage offers an abundance of beautiful character features, set in mature gardens in this beautiful Buckinghamshire village. It retains its original character combined with 21st century facilities and five star amenities.

Behind a secure gate, Rose Cottage epitomises rural living and yet is less than one mile from railway stations (to London) and the M4 motorway. Rose Cottage is ideally situated a 15 minute car ride from Heathrow Airport and a short stagger to the local pub! Major supermarkets are less than a mile away. 15 minutes drive to Legoland.

There is secure parking for two vehicles on site.

The ground floor consists of a main sitting room with its wealth of exposed beams. Beyond, and accessed via double doors, is the third bedroom with a comfortable double bed and adjoining shower room facilities. This room can also be used as a TV/games room.

There is a heated Garden Room to the rear of the cottage which enjoys superb views over the gardens and steps out onto a courtyard terrace with an oak table providing outdoor dining for eight.

The kitchen has a comprehensive range of fitted base level units together with solid wood work tops.

There is a range cooker and a separate utility room has the remaining white goods.

Completing the ground floor accommodation is the breakfast hall, again with exposed beams and reclaimed stained glass windows. This is part of the original property dating back to the mid-16th century, with seating for six, as it neatly connects to both kitchen and sitting room.

To the first floor are two bedrooms, of particular note is the master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, fitted cupboards and a King Size bed.

The guest bedroom has a Super King Size bed that can be split into two Single beds.

Travel cot and high chair available by request at time of booking.

Rose Cottage has full central heating.

Lake End Road, where Rose Cottage is located, is in Dorney Village, where the Olympic rowing took place at Dorney Lake and where cows graze on the common. 2 miles further is Eton College and historic Windsor, home to the Royal Family. The River Thames meanders close by and the village of Bray, where fabulous restaurants such as the Waterside Inn and the Fat Duck are located, is less than 5 miles away - approachable by road or by boat.

Other local attractions include Legoland, excellent shopping in Windsor, and high speed rail to London from nearby Slough station.

You don't need to go that far though to see working farms, stables, the Jubilee River wetlands and open countryside which are all on your doorstep!

The flexibility of this wonderful property makes it ideal for romantic getaways or holidays.

In addition, there is a beautiful wedding reception venue close by (Dorney Court) and Rose Cottage would be ideal for the wedding party to stay.

A Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rose Cottage for a weekend. It was beautiful. Spotlessly clean, well decorated and very welcoming. There was plenty of space for 6 people. The beds were very comfortable and the showers hot and powerful. The kitchen was well equipped, with everything anyone could need to cook full meals or just heat up ready meals.

We stayed during the very cold spell and the cottage was beautifully warm, the heating had been turned up before we arrived so that it was very warm and welcoming.

We could not fault Rose Cottage and hope to return.

Comfy and cosy holiday home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Jill thought of everything to make the place as comfortable and homely as you could wish. We found the garden a lovely place to spend our time when we were not out being tourists and were extremely lucky with great weather. Windsor is so close and shopping is easy with two supermarkets close by. Lots of wonderful places to visit in the area.

Your home away from home in the English Countryside!

  • 5 of 5

Rose Cottage is quaint, cozy and well equipped cottage very close to Windsor, Eton and London.

We are a family of 5 adults and the cottage was very spacious with 3 large bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and 2 large sitting rooms (1 cozy living room and a sun room ). The cottage is set in a very private garden with plenty of room to relax in the sun or enjoy the garden patio.

There is a friendly pub right across the road with excellent food and pints!

Right outside your door are numerous footpaths leading to neighbouring villages, lakes, garden shops, cafes and a 12th century church.

The hosts are very helpful and friendly.

You will not be disappointed with your stay at Rose Cottage!

Not to be missed!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 wonderful nights in this beautifully maintained cottage. Found out it was a refurbished 16th century cottage, but coming from Asia, entering the cottage was like coming home. Jill was wonderful from the very start, and how the property was kept made us feel like she knew exactly how to welcome guests into her home. Each room had a combination of old and new, with TVs in each room, amidst all the quaint touches that a country cottage would have. The property is less than an hour away from London, 15 minutes to Windsor Castle and for those who love shopping, Bicester is only 45 minutes away. But regardless, each day we looked forward to coming back to the cottage, and once we entered all the stress went away. Jill, you’ve done wonders and we truly hope that we have the opportunity to visit again. Will not hesitate to recommend this property - in fact, miss this and I’m sure you’ll regret it!
