About Miss Helen Ward

Hi, I bought this house 20 years ago because I loved the river with all the boating and kayaking on my doorstep, my 16 year old son lives with me. I am a designer, have travelled extensively and lived and worked abroad . I Run my own small business (we have an office in the front garden which may need to be accessed now and then). The house is in a very pretty sunny spot in a safe gated community. I would like to rent it out during school holidays so we can do some travelling ourselves .Please be aware that Our little cat will stay with you during your visit ! It’s a home from home, and there is lots to do, tho the main attraction for me is the lovely River Thames!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comments from our guest book



A lovely warm welcome to a very comfortable home. Loved the garden, pool and kyaking on the river. An ideal place to relax - Loved it.





The house is really good and the environment is so quiet. You feel you are staying in your second home. My kids loved the swimming and boating



We had a lovely 10 nights at this beautiful home. from the warm welcome when we arrived we instantly felt at home and will take away lots in interesting memories from Windsor. Many Thanks for providing the perfect base for our family holiday



We stayed for 9 days and had an enjoyable time. In particular the dining area, kitchen and conservatory were lovely spaces to enjoy, I can imagine that in the summer with access to the river with its own rowing boat and a swimming pool at the front of the property its a great place to be with kids. There are also kayaks available!! Its very convenient for all the attractions Berkshire has to offer in particular Windsor



We arrived to a lovely warm cottage ( even nicer than it looks online ) for Christmas . Everything had been thought of , we were comfortable , happy and fell in love with the cat . Absolutely will stay again . Family of six we had tons of room . Great comfort and even a gorgeous Christmas tree ! Lovely lovely stay .



Thoroughly enjoyed our week here in such a beautiful house . Used the rowing boat and kayaks every day and even braved the pool ! Kitten was very cute !

All in all a great week , thank you .



We have had a lovely week in this gorgeous house . So much to do . George loved the kayaks but didn't like being hissed at by the swans looking after their young ! Would definitely recommend this house to anyone .

Fabulous 4 Bedroom House On The River Thames

Beautiful, homely, spacious property

  • 4 of 5

On first arrival we were very excited about the location as it's in a prime spot with beautiful views. Walking into the house we were thrilled with the space, design and layout which was extremely comfortable and homely. The house was equipped with everything we needed. The pool was great fun although we had to cope with cold temperatures as we chose a Bad week for weather but we decided not to let it ruin our stay and went in the pool daily and ate outdoors when possible in the lovely front garden. Going out on the boats was another highlight and bonus to staying at this property. My children didn't want to leave. My only negative was the fact that the house is under the flight path . The first couple of nights we didn't sleep well at all but then we must have got a bit lucky as the flight path seemed to move over a little (just enough for us to sleep through the noise). Other than that, we had most enjoyable time and would recommend staying in the property to others. Thanks, Kelly.
