Firstly I must say that the pictures do not do this exquisite and luxurious house justice. Our week here in this most comfortable and well appointed property made us almost feel we didn't want to leave to do the sightseeing trips we has pre-planned.
We have arranged to bring our grandchildren next year for the Lego land attraction so we can spend more leisure time lazing around the decking while watching the swans and ducks popping into the garden for a feed or the boats passing by which were glorious sights especially while the sun was shining enabling us to dine on the large decking area set out with accompanying dining furniture.
The house itself was impeccably clean and we were impressed with the way the owner dealt with our booking. The booking was completed with in just a couple of emails, any questions were responded to almost immediately and our deposit was returned to us on the evening of our departure.
Also, information about the house, info about local shops/restaurants and directions were a great help.
This was a pleasurable experience from booking to receiving our deposit back and will be definitely be back in 2015.
We had a lovely stay at Pixie Place and having the river as our backdrop was perfect. The house is well equipped except for the lack of tea towels (only 2 provided) and bath towels (we change ours every 3 days). The boiler pump for the hot water is noisy so make sure there are no light sleepers upstairs. Also noisy are the planes to and from nearby Heathrow. Apart from that, Pixie Place is well kept and maintained to a high standard and worth staying in especially if there are a group of people wanting to explore the Windsor area. Perfect for family get- togethers.
Pixie Place is a stunning home, inside and out. It was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The solarium was an added bonus, where we thoroughly enjoyed our view and the open air. It was an easy 5 minute cab ride into downtown Windsor, and cabs were always available. I had excellent communication with the owners. It was a pleasure renting their home. They refunded back my security deposit on my departure day. I would rent Pixie Place again and I highly recommend it to everyone.
We booked this house primarily for visiting London. It served our every purpose. It's smart, well equipped. The conservatory is a delight, allowing views of the river. We sat out on the decking for a few nights. It was clean , well prepared. Set in a quiet location. Although close to the Heathrow approaches, this didn't bother us, and the double glazing ?(?triple) helped+++.
The nearby lock is a 3/4 mile walk - very pleasant.
The kids loved the house. It was well located for exploring London. Datchet train station is a five minute drive away with plenty of parking. We used Egham train station on a Sunday (quicker trains, but less parking).
Our itinerary (for our 2 children aged 10 and 8) was Sun : HMS Belfast, Tower Bridge, Thames Speedboat (these booked to avoid the bank holiday rush), Mon - Hampton Court (a 35 min drive), Tues - Madame Tussauds, then Tower of London, Weds : Trafalgar Square and Buckinghams Palace, then West End show, Thurs : Chessington, Fri : Houses of Parliament (audio tour) and then London Eye.
We have stayed in the Windsor area before for a week, doing Legoland, country parks, indoor skiing, cycling, swimming. So there is probably enough here for a fortnight.
My wife enjoyed running down the Thames footpath, and I had a 10 mile mountain bike circuit , out via Crimp Hill then taking in Great Windsor Park and national cycle route 4 : perfect!
Excellent communication from owner.
Highly recommended accommodation.
We are a family of eight who travelled from Australia back home to the U.K. and Pixie Place provided the ideal setting for a family Christmas.
The house is beautiful and the setting unique . Our only disappointment was the lack of SNOW .
We were delighted on arrival at the beautiful location and surroundings. Once inside Pixie Place the feeling of space and luxurious decor was more than expected. The views from the decking and conservatory over the river Thames was outstanding. .. It truly felt like home and we soon settled in.
We were amazed at how well equipped this house is and lacked nothing. The owners decked out the study area with a whole selection of sight seeing and timetable info which we found really useful and dealing with the owners was an easy process, even receiving our deposit back before we'd even reached home. For the more outdoor types there are amazing walks and runs which I discovered just down the lane.
Lego land is a mere 10 min drive from Pixie Place and so is Windsor Castle.
We truly found this house to be as good as our own home and more which is a very rare attribute. We will definitely be returning and have recommended Pixie Place to our friends and family.
