About Sam Story


We are a busy family, with a lazy lab dog. I work from home selling old french house and garden pieces. I love gorgeous things, so I like my job.

Like gardening and great food. Quite a relaxed person.

Do like people, but do understand people need to have their space.

Sam Story purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Sam Story chose Old Windsor

Windsor and Old Windsor for me is quite a special place, as I love the countryside as well as a great town, and here we have both.

It has a village feel to Old Windsor and yet it is only 30 mins to Richmond and one hour to central London. Train stations are very accessible only 5 mins by car or taxi.

What makes this cottage unique

Legoland is 10 min drive from here.

Windsor Castle 3 mins drive.

Windsor town 3 mins drive.

Trains to London are on our door step, 5 mins away.

If you are relaxing here, lovely walks around the Windsor Great Park, with walking distance to convenient store, as well as a hair dressers, beauty salon great italian restaurant and take away.

The property I am renting is situated behind my house and has a large court yard in between, with a long garden behind, so it does have space around the property.

I do have a labrador dog, who is lazy and might bark occasionally.

It is very home from home here and instead of staying in a small hotel room in Windsor, for roughly the same amount, one gets a lot more here, space wise. And ambience !!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Very welcoming, relaxed and enjoyable with loads of character.

Helpful owners

So close to all amenities, Windsor on your doorstep, fantastic stay and cannot wait to return.

Home from home and very dog friendly

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a couple of nights last week and were very comfortable.

The accommodation is very tastefully decorated with shabby chic furniture.

The bed is the most comfortable one I've been in away from home for a long time.

Dogs were made very welcome and even had little friends from next door knocking door for them to go out into yard.

Can highly recommend the place and would use again.

Sam is very friendly and made up a lovely welcome pack for our arrival.

Only thing I'd say it needs is a clothes horse if your there for a few days and want to do a wash.

Comfortable and unusual

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 4 nights in this property. Unusual because the sitting room and bedroom were as one room on the first floor, the kitchen, dining and bathroom were on the ground floor. We were warmly welcomed by Sam who left us with a welcome pack of essentials, a convenience store and Italian restaurant were just round the corner which was very handy. Windsor Horse Show which we attended was just a couple of miles away and Windsor town was just a 10 minute car drive away. All in all a very pleasant stay

Lovely clean Apartment (perfect)

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a very enjoyable long weekend at this charming apartment.

On arrival we were warmly greeted by the owner Sam who along with Tim made us feel so very welcome throughout our stay, the apartment itself was very well presented with a pleasantly warm, peaceful & tranquil feel inside. (perfect for a romantic getaway for couples)

Clean towels & bedding etc were also provided by the lovely owners. The cleanliness was of a very high standard, and the apartment is actually a lot more spacious and bigger than appears in the photos and was equipped with everything that we could have possibly imagined that we would need for a comfortable stay. It is also very ideally situated if you want to explore Windsor, just 5 mins by car to Windsor castle and Windsor town centre, and very close to the river with stunning picturesque scenery. Nearby there are plenty of shops and pubs and a restaurant literally a minute’s walk away (toby carvery), Overall staying at this Apartment was a wonderful experience and we will have no hesitation in going back to stay there again. Thanks so much to Sam & Tim, we will see you both again very soon. Regards, Kam & Donna xx
