Situated within a mile of Henley-on-Thames (famous for the Henley Royal Regatta) and in the corner of a Country Estate which has been in the ownership of the same family for over 100 years, Shooting Lodge Cottage is quietly situated, but not isolated, overlooks fields and trees, and is surrounded by its own small enclosed garden. It is often difficult to believe that just down the hill there is a bustling town, London is 30 miles away and London Heathrow just 22 miles.
Henley is in the heart of the Thames Valley and Chilterns - an area not as well known as some of the other parts of England but just as beautiful and is perfect for serious sightseeing. It is centrally located between London in the east and the Cotswolds and Bath in the west; Stratford-on-Avon in the north and Winchester, Salisbury, and Portsmouth in the south. Windsor and Oxford are within a 20 mile radius. This is a wonderfully central position from which to explore all these areas.
For those who prefer a more gentle and tranquil vacation there are wonderful footpaths, which can be reached straight from the doorstep, through the Chiltern beech woods carpeted in season by primroses or bluebells. Alternatively be bewitched by the "Wind in the Willows" walks beside the meandering River Thames, visit the enchanting local historic houses and gardens or explore the welcoming Chiltern and Thameside villages. This unsung area is the pearl in the crown of heritage England and it is waiting to welcome you but beware there will not be hoards of people or large tour buses.
The cottage is available for weekly breaks (commencing on either Friday or Monday). Midweek or weekend breaks are also available throughout the low season [October - Easter]. After Easter in the high season these short stays may be available for last minute breaks. It is licensed to accommodate 1 or 2 adults (or maybe a parent and a child but only if the child is over 13 years of age)and I am sorry but it does mean just that, so no babies or children in travel cots I am afraid.
