Henley self catering house
House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
An ideal place to stay in for a family to spend a great time in Henley on Thames. Quiet neighborhood and very centrally located. Walking distance to all that Henley can offer. Train to central London 45 minutes. local attractions include Greys Court, Stonor Park, Henley river and rowing museum. 15 golf clubs within 20 miles. Vineyard in the Chilterns. A vast number of great restaurants and pubs, all within short walking distance. You have the privacy of an own garden, while being close to the action in Henley. The house is built in the 50´s and we have kept the feel of those times in the house, we have kept some of the nice things from that era and combined with what is needed in modern living. The windows are the old style original which we like very well, even the bathtub is a treat from old times, combined with a modern shower. The living room has a wide screen TV, and sofas combined with an old table from a nearby college, and chairs from various pubs in the surrounding area. The kitchen is spacious with a table for enjoying your breakfast. There is a small garden patch out front with a hedge and some flowers. The back garden is small and divided into two parts where the lower parts enjoy the sun late into the evening and has a small shed with sun chairs and a barbecue grill. The upper part of the garden has a terrace and a patch of grass great for kids playing. Your meals can be enjoyed outside, weather permitting. The steps going down into the garden, are in the original bricks which by now are quite weathered, and we find it adds a charm to the place. The place is great for families, or for friends having a great time in a cozy place, and cozy city.

Convenient key pickup in Henley on Thames
The Central England/Cotswolds region
Founded in the 12th century Henley-on-Thames is overlooked by beautiful Chiltern landscape of wooded hills and green fields. Just a few strides from the riverbank is the very heart of Henley with its historic church, town hall and market square.
Local attractions include Stonor Park, Greys Court, a nearby waterpark, Badgemore Golf Club within walking distance.
The picturesque historic town of Henley-on-Thames has an olde English charm and is best known for the annual Royal Regatta, Henley attracts some of the world´s finest rowers. Statues of those great Olympians Sir Steve Redgrave and Sir Matthew Pinsent greet visitors to the town´s award winning River and Rowing Museum.
Henley also attracts golfers to local courses, is home to the nationally known Henley Hawks rugby club and successful cricket and football clubs as well as a privately-owned polo ground.
The stretch of river between the regatta finish and Henley Bridge is the location for the annual Henley Festival of Music and Arts. Now a popular hospitality venue it attracts some of the world´s top entertainers to perform on a floating stage in front of a dinner-jacketed audience and the site includes exhibitions of art and sculpture.
The thriving Kenton Theatre is one of the oldest performing theatres in the country.
Visitors can enjoy a boat trip down the regatta course, either in one of the commercial boats that operate along this stretch or, rather more energetically, in a rowing boat.
Afterwards they can relax in the well-maintained Mill Meadows public park.
Another form of enjoyment is the opportunity to enjoy a meal in one of Henley's many and varied restaurants.
