About Sam Story

Hi. I have lived in this area for over 20 years and went to school in the same area. I sell French pieces and beautiful cashmere ponchos. I love animals, I am very relaxed and enjoy having people and friends to stay. I also respect privacy.

Sam Story purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Sam Story chose Old Windsor

This property was terribly run down when we first bought it. We have worked hard on it, to make it look cosy and comfortable. It has featured in a few magazines, Country Living and House and Home.

What makes this apartment unique

MMMmmm! Lots of those here, I love the way you are near a town, where it is busy, yet when you step into The Clockhouse, it is quiet and hidden away from everything. It also has a secret garden out of the back of the house that is quite natural - we even have hedgehogs.

HI It is really important to me that our guests enjoy their stay here at The Clockhouse. The cottage is really tucked away and is comfy in a busy area of Windsor. Windsor Castle, Royal Holloway University, Thorpe Park, Legoland, Royal Windsor Theatre, Saville Gardens, The wonderful home park and Great Park or Bishopsgate walks all very close to us. Good restaurants surround the area. I do also provide a small breakfast of Bread Milk Jam and Butter and of course Tea and Coffee. Really hope you come and stay. Many thanks Sam

Charming and quaint little cottage :)

  • 5 of 5

The Clockhouse is located in Sam's backyard, with its own separate access through the gate leading to the garden. My parents stayed at the Clockhouse for almost the entirety of their time in the UK and they absolutely loved it! Sam is the most lovely host I've ever met. She is warm, friendly and will do everything to make your stay the best it can be. The location is quite convenient if you are trying to get to Eton or Windsor. Trains also run from Windsor to Slough (and then Paddington thereafter) or direct to London Waterloo. I would definitely recommend the Clockhouse to anyone looking for a home away from home.
