A great weekend in a lovely house, made even more beautiful by 10 inches of snow!
Thanks for helping us celebrate a great birthday celebration.
Everything we wished for that is how I would describe The Copse.
The house was very warm,comfortable with large windows looking out over a peaceful rural scene with plenty of areas for sitting, dining and cooking. The main bedrooms were unique, and the beds soft.
The garden was a picture of spring flowers and blossom.
Our family aged from 16 to 82 found plenty to do the youngsters enjoyed the hot tub particularly in the evening and also the cinema, whilst the more mature relaxed and chatted in the very comfortable chairs.
We had a fabulous time and our very grateful to Penny and Tim for looking after us so well in their beautiful home. They have thought of everything to make one's stay memorable.
Couldn't recommend it more highly.
Having seen the stunning photos online and experienced the attentive and friendly service of the lovely owners Tim and Penny in advance of our stay, we had high hopes for our girls' weekend away. The reality was so much better than we could have imagined! While I sort of want to keep this place a secret, I also want to tell everyone how wonderful it is! Bags of character, spacious tastefully furnished rooms, a wonderful mix of modern appliances and furnishings with traditional character features and wonderfully light thanks to the floor to ceiling windows throughout the house. The cinema room and hot tub were the icing on the cake that guaranteed an experience most other holiday homes can't offer. The owners, Penny and Tim, were very flexible and attentive throughout the booking process and during our stay which only added to what turned out to be the perfect weekend. We're counting the days til we can go back!
I will struggle to do this place justice in a short review, it really is a remarkable little haven. The house itself is so fantastically unique, you keep finding new areas or routes around the place, it's like being a child again discovering new little nooks and crannies. We had 13 adults staying for a relaxing weekend and it's perfect for it. A massive living room with an open fire, wonderful kitchen and dining room big enough to accommodate all of us, comfy beds, hot tub and the cinema: oh the cinema! To top it off we had a local caterer come in and cook a dinner for us which was fantastic (Lynn @ Chocolate Strawberry). But the real hats off has to go to the owner Penny, who was so helpful in getting us there and helping us out. She not only offered to let us have a supermarket delivery before our arrival and sort it out for us, but there was some bad flooding in the week before our trip and she went out of her way to get in touch with the best routes to drive and updates on the train line. Really couldn't ask for more. Phenomenal value, incredible place and facilities, and genuinely lovely and helpful owners. Can't recommend highly enough.
I booked The Copse for a corporate event and team meeting. It was difficult to find accomodation that was suitable for all of our criteria. However, The Copse was perfect and had all the facilities we required for a team meeting, break out areas and the cinema room with projector was perfect, wifi and music system. Penny and Tim were extremly helpful, they made sure our stay was perfect and were happy to help with specific requests we had. As they live nearby they were on hand and able to help immediately. Also, they are extremly helpful in providing recommendations to make your stay perfect. We tried a local restaurant that was recommended and it was amazing. We also did wine tasting one of the evenings which was fantastic, again I was provided with the details from Penny. It is like a home from home and has everything you may need. I will certainly be booking this venue again for corporate events as will some of my colleagues who were equally impressed. I cannot fault The Copse and would recommend for a corporate event, or get away with friends or family. Thank you to Penny and Tim for making our stay so enjoyable and hassle free. I look forward to seeing you again very soon.
We took this house for a week with children and grandchildren to celebrate our 50th anniversary. It was a perfect venue for us, with ample room for 10 (even 3 teenagers). The kitchen was very well equipped, and the reception rooms were enormous. And the cinema room was a big hit for all ages. Close enough to Reading to easily get to London (we made it back to the house from Waterloo in an hour). Beautiful garden and hot tub, easily accessible even for the oldies. We'd
recommend it to anyone.
9 of my family stayed at this house to celebrate several milestone birthdays and we all had a fantastic time from beginning to end. We met Tim who was very friendly and Penny was always very helpful and friendly in her emails. There was everything and more in the house that we needed and a lot of thought and care had been made to make sure that the house was very welcoming. The cinema was superb and it was so good having the pool. We had Camilla, the recommended cook, come over on Saturday night and the food was wonderful. Camilla herself was lovely and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her.
All in all it was a wonderful experience and one that I would definitely like to repeat.
Thank you Penny and Tim and also Camilla for our wonderful weekend.
