About the property

Lovely Garden Studio with Private Courtyard - Sleeps Family of 4 ( 2 adults max)

This simple and beautiful Garden Studio is located in the stunning countryside of Oakley Green, Windsor, Berkshire. The Garden Studio is located on our family small-holding called Willow Court Farm.

The Garden Studio is an absolutely perfect (simple and cosy) base for a couple or a family (sleeps up to 4). It's an open-plan arrangement which includes a large sun-filled bedroom with a lovely king size bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers. The bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. There is also a small sitting/dining area with a double sofa-bed making this property suitable for a family of 4.

This accommodation and the location is perfectly suited for guests wanting a relaxing break in the beautiful English countryside while being extremely close to the hustle and bustle of Windsor and London.(Windsor town centre & Windsor castle only a 5 minute drive away)

There is also a small mini kitchen in the Garden Studio which includes a double electric hob, microwave oven, fridge and small freezer. The mini kitchen is fully equipped with cutlery, plates kitchenware and all the basics needed for a great stay. There is also a washing machine within the Garden Studio (no dryer). There is a local laundrette 2 mins drive away if needed. The Garden Studio also has TV and Internet access.

The Garden Studio is freshly decorated and has 2 large patio doors that open onto a large walled courtyard garden, which is gated, safe & private for your use only.

If you have a young baby, we can also provide a highchair and cot for no additional fee - please just let us know in advance.

As the Garden Studio is located within our small holding we have 4 pygmy goats (Nuzzle and Scratch and Bean & Sprout) that love to be stroked and fed, 2 micro pot belly pigs (Cooper and Coen) who also love to be scratched and petted. We also have chickens, ducks, geese and of course chicks and ducklings when available throughout the hatching season!

You may be able to help feed the animals and learn how to carefully hold a chick or duckling (when available). You can collect your own eggs for breakfast and if the weather is warm enough you may even be able to help teach the young ducklings to swim in the paddling pool (during hatching season only).

Willow Court Farm and the Garden Studio has ample parking. There is also both a Tesco and Waitrose supermarket close by (2 mins Tesco and 7 mins Waitrose) by car.

Oakley Green is a beautiful area located about 5 mins drive from Windsor Town Centre. The area includes the Windsor Racecourse, LEGOLAND, Windsor Castle, Windsor Great Park, many traditional pubs and restaurants and is surrounded by stunning English countryside.

Willow Court Farm is a fun, safe, happy and relaxed environment to be in and around. We have a totally Non Smoking policy inside the Garden Studio (smoking in the courtyard garden is allowed).

This accommodation will suit any guests looking to find a beautiful, simple and reasonably-priced private property to be based while they explore the local area, Windsor, London and beyond.

About Shaun

Hello! We have decided to list our simple and beautiful 'Garden Studio' on VRBO (self-contained garden annex) for short term rental. There is a 2 night minimum stay.

Shaun purchased this studio in 2002

Why Shaun chose England

My family live in or close to Oakley Green, Windsor because we love the area, it's so green and is really beautiful traditional English countryside and yet within a few minutes drive you are in the very impressive town of Windsor where there is so much to see, do and explore - and with London just 35 mins away by train - it really is the perfect location.

What makes this studio unique

Young guests (and older ones too) can collect their own eggs for breakfast, pet and feed the animals and learn a little about farm life. For Couples - Going for long walks on the many public footpaths, day-tripping to Windsor Town and exploring Windsor Castle, taking a boat trip on the River Thames, feeding the swans, going to the theatre, the shops, cafes and many restaurants. Heading to Windsor Great Park and seeing the herds of deer, watching the Polo while having a picnic and much more!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We nearly booked a hotel room in Windsor instead before finding this place and we are so glad we didn't. A Windsor hotel 'family room' costs between £150-£250 per night. This detached holiday studio costs much less AND is private & quiet (no noise from other hotel guests), has its own large walled courtyard garden and private parking spaces (not available in any Windsor Hotel). All set behind electric gates, with farm animals out the back of a huge garden area with trampolines and play houses. The kids collected eggs and fed the animals every day. 5 minutes from LEGOLAND-5 minutes from Windsor town centre. Only £8 taxi fare to either, one way. Hosts were very welcoming & helpful. This place was miles above anywhere else weve stayed and certainly the best value for money compared with Windsor Hotel prices.

Perfect short break getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great place that is a perfect base to explore Windsor and the surrounding area including Legoland so much my kids didn't want to leave !

The property is extremely warm and comfortable and very tastefully decorated throughout and we had a warm welcome from Angelica too, as well as a great welcome basket of goodies that could have fed us all weekend ! There are also a pub, a tescos and a takeaway less than a couple of minutes away and all in all I would highly recommend The Garden Studio we had a great stay and again thank you both very much.

A little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place to stay, accommodation is stunning and practical. The farm is fantastic for the kids with the help of Andy being very informative of all the animals.

Shaun and Andelica are so welcoming and made sure our stay was tip top.

Everything you could think of was there.

The journey into Windsor was about 10 minutes by car.

Windsor is stunning and worth a longer visit!

Already sharing our experiences with friends and can highly recommend.

Ideal base for Legoland but peaceful and tranquil at the same time

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed for 3 nights in the garden studio. It proved to be the perfect location for Legoland, just a short drive away. The accommodation is finished to a high standard, modern decor, nice furnishings etc. Both beds are huge and comfortable. The welcome food pack was also a nice touch, especially after our drive down from Scotland. There was also a box of Lego (and large TV) to entertain the kids and we were also lucky enough to to get the chance to be shown round the animals on the farm by the farm hand who was very friendly and gave us some peacock feathers to take home!

Perfectly proportioned studio cottage in an idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Garden Studio for 2 nights in mid June. The setting is gorgeous and really peaceful. The studio itself has been designed fantastically with everything that you need for however long you should stay but in such a neat space. Nothing was cluttered and although a studio, the space has been cleverly divided. All very clean too.

Although we did not use the courtyard garden, this is beautiful with complete privacy.

We were greeted by the lovely Angelica who showed us around the Studio and the farm and who was very helpful on pointing out pubs/places to eat. She also very kindly let out Daughter borrow her Daughter's Lego and some toys which kept ours very quiet and entertained!

There was a delicious basket of goodies on arrival which was not expected so thank you!

WiFi and Sky TV were great.

We visited the farm at the top of the land but the animals were hiding from the rain although we did see a few brave goats!

The studio is in a great location with Legoland (which we went for) and Windsor town centre all within easy reach. It is not far from the M4 either (although you'd never know) and so this proved easy for the journey to and from.

Overall a great weekend and happy memories made. Would highly recommend and will go back if we are in the area again.

Thank you both!

Katie, Steve and Evie Xx

Willow Court Farm is a family owned and run small-holding. We have owned the property for more than 14 years.

We have various animals here on the farm; Nuzzle and Scratch, and Bean & Sprout (our four pygmy goats) that love to be stroked and cuddled and Cooper and Coen (our two micro pot belly pigs) who also love to be scratched along with various ducks, chickens & geese.

You may be able to get a taste of farm life by collecting your own eggs, feeding the chickens and learning how to handle the chicks and ducklings (if available during hatching season).

If you are coming to Windsor for LEGOLAND - then Willow Court Farm is an absolutely perfect location for you as LEGOLAND is just 3 miles drive away & about the same distance to Windsor castle-Windsor town centre and the river Thames.

If you are a couple coming to enjoy a relaxing break - then the Garden Studio is also a perfect choice and wonderful base for you - whilst also providing very quick access to all the restaurants, cafes, racing and events in Windsor.

Also very close by is Windsor Castle, Windsor Race Course, Ascot Race Course, extremely easy access to the M4 and just 3 miles away from the Windsor and Eton train station which trains to London Paddington taking just 35 mins.
