This is the peaceful English countryside. We are just into Oxfordshire and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are walks and wildlife, woods and wildflowers everywhere you look. It is a wonderful area when you consider it is ten minutes from the bustle of Reading and 25 minutes from the centre of Oxford. It is a haven to relax and enjoy the company of good friends, do nothing, read and when you are ready explore the local area, walk to the pub for lunch, explore the little shops and the riverside at Henley on Thames and then home for an evening in the fabulous cinema room.

The house is popular all year round and the garden is an amazing feature. There is a 14 seat barbecue hut int he woods for eating outdoors all year round.

Autumn colours, daffodils in spring, honeysuckle and wisteria in summer and in winter a cosy log fire. There is golf and horse riding nearby and dozens of books, dvd film collection, music on sonos or cd and more to entertain you at home.

Kidmore End

Kidmore End is a typical English village with a pub and small supermarket, a fish and chip shop which is highly recommended and an Indian restaurant which does excellent take away.

There is a small late opening store and a large Waitrose supermarket five minutes away that also delivers to the house.

Taxis are easy to come by either to the house or outside Reading Station. It is a 5 minute ride from the station to the house.

Above all Mill Lane is a quiet and peaceful country road with almost no traffic as it serves a dozen or so houses only and is not suitable for heavy vehicles being single track. The property is securely fenced so dogs and humans cannot arrive in your garden unexpectedly, but you are surrounded by deer and muntjac, red kites, heron, ducks and we keep a small herd of horses in the nearby fields.

"A perfect setting for the perfect birthday weekend!"

We wanted a property that would sleep 12 adults and my young niece and nephew to celebrate my 40th - this was absolutely perfect. The owners were incredibly helpful, and incredibly patient when I was … More

"Britain at its best!"

This place is outstanding! In the middle of the beautiful countryside but we went to Bath, Oxford, London and Stonehenge and those were really easy trips. The house has everything including 2 kitchens… More

Thank you so much. We very much enjoyed having you to stay and helping plan your trips before you arrived. Over the years we have built up much local knowledge which we are always happy to share, just ask us and we can do the research. We also have caterers we can recommend and there is much to see and do locally, particularly in the famous Henley on Thames, for those who are not on an extended break. Come again soon!

"Beautiful house - every single room was perfect, fantastic for big group of friends"

I was part of a group of 12 (6 couples) who wanted to get away for a weekend outside of London. We found The Copse by chance - and are so glad we did! We had a fantastic time, so much so that within a… More

What a super review! Thank you so much. It really means such a lot to hear that guests have enjoyed their stay and to take the trouble to write once the holiday is over and the business of life starts again, is very special. Hugely appreciated.

"English elegance"

An exquisite place for our catch-up weekend, we were so comfortable. We were lucky with the weather so didn't use the amazing cinema room, but did get the best from the hot tub and hammock!

The house is so elegant, and kitted out with everything you could need (all kitchen utensils, lovely bedding, plenty of seating, even board games). My bed was extremely comfortable and I can't fault the bathrooms. The garden is full of native plants and therefore humming with bees and gorgeous butterflies.

Such a special, relaxing place, highly recommended.

Thank you so much. This is a wonderful review and we are delighted you enjoyed your time at The Copse. I think you are unique in not using the cinema room, which seems to be a huge success with guests of all ages, but we have had the most glorious weather this summer and outdoors has definitely been the place to be.

"The perfect English summer house party"

Our one-night weekend at The Copse was an exceptionally happy and
comfortable gathering of friends. The house is beautiful, spacious and very well-equipped. The standard of accommodation in every bedroom and bathroom is excellent. The garden is lovely. Very peaceful - I can't remember hearing a single car pass down the lane all the time we stayed.

thank you so much for your review, which is very much appreciated. I do agree it is wonderful to escape from the city to this oasis in the countryside and yet be so close to everything.

"Fabulous"

The Copse was a fabulous place for our group to stay. We had a number of men who were rowing at the Henley Masters Regatta. We were able to drive easily to racecourse. The pub near the house was terrific. The weather was spectacular. Beautiful accommodation. Great theater that seats a dozen. We would come back. We loved it.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you come back in future years to defend your Masters Regatta title! You will always be most welcome.
