Why Kids Love it

The residence is suited to all ages. The owners provide a high chair, a stair gate, bed guard, suitable kitchen accessories, and bunk beds with personal shelves. There are lots of toys for all ages, plus WiFi, cable TV and a DVD player. The center of Henley-on-Thames is an easy 10-minute walk away, and the river and station are under 10-minutes’ walk away. Makins Recreation Ground is a 2-minute walk away with a skatepark and playground; Henley’s River & Rowing Museum is a 6-minute drive/15-minute walk away. There is also a lovely sports center, wildlife walks beside the Thames, Mill Meadows, a large riverside recreational area that includes a fantastic new toddler play area and older children's playground, and a Picturehouse cinema a 10-minute walk from the house.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 days. This is a typical period terraced house with moderately steep stairs leading to the bedrooms and bathrooms. Stair gates can be fitted on request. Hosts provide a high chair, bed guard and first aid kit for any bumps. The garden is suited to kids of all ages, and is walled and level. You can park a car unrestricted on the street and surrounding area. The house is walking distance from the train station, which has regular connections to London Paddington, so non-drivers will be very happy; there are plenty of things to do without using any transport once you reach the cottage.

About the Location

The residence is in Henley-on-Thames, around a 5-10 minute walk to the heart of the town and the same to the river. Henley is a classic English market town famed for its Royal Regatta. It is well connected with the rest of the UK with fast trains running to London in an hour and Oxford in 45 minutes. The M4 motorway is close by; driving times to central London are approximately 40 minutes. Car rental is not essential as the property is walking distance from the town’s key attractions. There are supermarkets, boutiques, a cinema and plenty of pubs and restaurants a short walk away.

Accommodation Details

This charming 3-bedroom cottage has a private walled garden with barbecue, spacious kitchen, and a separate dining room. All 3 bedrooms are upstairs and include 1 with king size bed, 1 with bunk beds and 1 in the attic with twin single beds. The bathroom is located upstairs and has a bathtub and shower over it. A double sofa bed in the lounge can accommodate additional guests.

Style Notes

Quintessential English. The cottage has been lovingly renovated with no expense spared. The period features of the house have been styled with antiques, beautiful furnishings, and luxurious brand new mattresses and bedding. Each room has been fitted with blackout blinds, and new mattresses and antique furniture. We love the private walled garden, the cozy attic bedroom and the playful blackboard wall in the kitchen.

We are a family of four, who love adventures of any kind. We love to travel, discover new places, find out about new cultures, and prefer to sit in the local cafe, than eat at the smartest new place in town. My partner is a comedy writer, and I work in TV Production. Yes he does steal all his material from the kids! I also run an events and concierge company, organising bespoke arts and culture trips. Check it out www.mycultureclub.com, it would be great to have you join us.

Messing about on the river

Ratty, the Water Rat in Wind in the Willows, memorable said that there was nothing he liked as much as messing about on the river. If you feel the same, Henley-on-Thames is your place. This historic and beautiful boutique-packed town is set on the river and is known for its Royal Regatta which takes place each summer. Take the kids to the fantastic River & Rowing Museum, which has regular events, play in local playgrounds and hire boats to explore the weeping willow-fringed river and beyond.
