"Perfect peace and quiet in a wonderful location!"
This was our second trip to Crowthorne, Found it to be a fantastic home from home, everything you need is there and the location is great, just the sights and sounds of the countryside. Lucky enough to see the badgers on this trip!! Some great places to visit in the area with lots of village pubs to enjoy an evening out. Would definitely recommend it and would love to visit again in the future.
