A spacious detached Nettlebed village home in the heart of the Chilterns
About Alan Elston
I love living at Corner House, it's a very happy home for me and is the place I feel comfortable and at home. Due to my work as an actor, presenter and property developer I'm fortunate to be able to travel. Wherever I have been in the world, this is still the place I want to come back to.
Alan Elston purchased this House in 2008
Why Alan Elston chose South Oxfordshire District
Buying Corner House over ten years ago, I really like the sense of space. In the summer I love to have all the windows and doors open and allow the breeze to roll through. The lounge and family room is great for entertaining, the bedrooms are a good size and I feel really at home here. In the summer the garden is great for enjoying the sun, in the winter the wood burning stove makes it very cosy and warm inside. It's very comfortable and welcoming; this is the place I love to come home to.
What makes this House unique
The first time I came to Henley some 22 years ago, I just knew I wanted to live here. It's a quintessentially English town in the home counties; with a real sense of the summer season. As an added bonus I can get to London in just over an hour on my motorbike. This is a beautiful part of the world, it has so much to offer. The countryside is awesome for mountain biking and sport, with a lake nearby for wake, surf and paddle boarding. To me, we are in the most beautiful place; whilst being close enough to the motorway network, airports and London.

Very Comfortable, Ideal Location and Keen to Please Host
We live in Scotland and our family visits to London were usually based out of Hotels where we pay a premium and still found parking was an issue. So we made the right choice of staying at Corner house. Clean, comfortable and nicely furnished with a large garden and patio to enjoy the great weather. We made several day trips to London, Oxford, Stratton upon Avon and Reading and found the location very convenient. No storage of shops and stores as well near by with Waitrose and Tesco nearby. Lastly, Alan spent time to make sure we fully got acquainted with the house and regularly checked by texting if we needed any help with anything. Great experience for the family. Thanks Alan.
Extended family holiday
Just the job for a holiday for 4 generations . Clean, comfortable and well positioned.
Lovely property, fantastic host!
Alan could not have been more helpful, he really went above and beyond making us welcome and ensuring our trip went smoothly. A great communicator, friendly and kind - we really felt exceptionally well looked after. The house is very clean and comfortable, decorated to a high standard and with great beds - we all had an excellent nights sleep. Fantastic showers, soft towels, very well kitted out kitchen with all you'll need to cater. Sunny garden. In a lovely, quiet neighborhood with good transport links to the centre of Henley. Will be coming back and would highly recommend booking this property.
Thank you for the great feedback Alice. I am so pleased you all enjoyed your time at Corner House. Look forward to seeing you again and appreciate you leaving the house is such good order. Al
