Completely Stunning

  • 5 of 5

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.

Ideal family home

  • 4 of 5

We needed a home for a family gathering during February. Pixie Place was ideally located, and the large open plan lounge/diner was ideal. When we arrived everything was spotless, and the quiet (apart from aircraft noise, which we always quickly forget about) location by the river was very pretty. Facilities were excellent, although the oven defeated our best efforts to get it working, and the interior was warm, bright and comfortable. Nael was very helpful throughout, and returned our deposit promptly. There is much to see and do in the area, and although we used to live around here it was great to re-acquaint ourselves with Windsor and the Castle. The cafe and shop at the Royal Windsor Farms Shop are well worth a visit too, and are close by. Would be a great location for trips into London as well.

Perfect home base for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 and were looking for a central, but comfortable, place to start our UK holiday. Pixie Place was ideal for those of us heading in to Windsor and London - including evening shows - and for those who wanted to hang out sometimes instead. Well-appointed with lots of nice touches & great recommendations by the owners & property manager - a real attention to detail all through our stay. We hope to be back!

Better than expected. Loved It

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the house and its location. We arrived after watching Bath beat Leicester at Twickenham so we were all on a high from that so the holiday was onto a fantastic start.

A quick familiarisation of the house was not disappointing, it was clean, spacious, and the kitchen had everything you could ask for except baking trays - which I got the next day from Asda in Slough. We spent each evening in the conservatory as this is the best room in the house. Add a little wine ant the place is perfect.

My family like aircraft, so as this is on the take off flightpath from LHR, we didn't mind the noise and as the holiday went on it became more distant. If you stay here get the FLIGHT RADAR 24 app.

We had several missed calls from the owners as 1. I don't take my phone with me when I go out - I'm on holiday, and 2. The wife didn't hear hers in her handbag, but I did email them telling them we had settled in well.

During our stay we were complete tourists and obviously visited Windsor on several days. Once by walking the Thames footpath. We did the open top bus tour too, stopping off at Her Majesty's Farm Shop - how disappointed were we that she wasn't on the till of waiting in the Tea Room? We also ventured into London by train from Slough to a couple of museums.

We'll be back, it is that good.
