Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
This beautiful unique 18th century cottage retains its original character combined with 21st century facilities and five star amenities. Designer's own home. In spring 2014 new furnishings and renovations refreshed this delightful and cosy home. Behind an automatic farm gate, Little Chauntry nestles at the end of a private, gravel, tree-lined driveway . It epitomises rural living and yet is less than one mile from railway stations (to London) and the M4 motorway. Truly rural meeting cosmopolitan.
Little Chauntry is ideally situated a 15 minute car ride from Heathrow Airport and a short stagger to the local pub! A major supermarket is only a few hundred yards away and a car rental company is 1.5 miles away. 15 minutes drive to Legoland. There is secure parking for two vehicles on site, but no other visitor parking (except offsite).
The cottage is sun-filled and warm with central heating and a cosy gas coal fire in the living area. The conservatory has a southerly aspect overlooking the cottage garden. There are scenic views of the local farming area from the upstairs lead light glazed dormer windows. The Kitchen is granite-topped with all new European appliances and casual eating for eight. There are designer window treatments throughout and ample, new, sumptuous seating in the lounge. There is an adjacent study area in the glass-roofed conservatory. The gadgetry includes three LED televisions (lounge, main bedroom and spare bedroom), free WiFi and very fast broadband.
Upstairs, there are two substantial-sized bedrooms with hair dryers provided, (there is a third but this is now owner's storage). The master with walk-in robe and the other with a private en-suite. Both bedrooms have SUPER KING SIZE beds which can be separated to king single beds. Additional folding bed available for guest bedroom. Travel cot and high chair by request at time of booking. Bedding and soft furnishings selected by the same interior designer!
Lake End Road, where Little Chauntry is located, leads into Dorney Village (1 mile), where the Olympic rowing took place and where cows graze on the common. 2 miles further is Eton College and historic Windsor, home to the Royal Family. The river Thames meanders close by and the village of Bray, where fabulous restaurants such as the Waterside Inn and the Fat Duck are located, is less than 5 miles away - approachable by road or by boat. Other local attractions include Legoland, excellent shopping in Windsor, and high speed rail to London from nearby Slough station. You don't need to go that far though to see working farms, stables, the Jubilee River wetlands and open countryside which is all at your doorstep!
The flexibility of this wonderful property makes it ideal for romantic getaways, holidays or corporate stays. In addition, there is a beautiful wedding reception venue close by (Dorney Court) and Little Chauntry would be ideal for the wedding party to stay.

The Central Southern England region
Windsor has a long and colourful history. Thanks to the royal connection there are lots of first hand documentary sources available for those interested in the history of the town of Windsor, Berkshire.
The story of the settlement begins in the dawn of prehistory. The last ice age saw glaciers within 20 miles of where Windsor now stands. As the ice melted, the massive quantities of water carved the path of the river Thames
The river provided the first easy path through the growing forests so we believe that many settlers would have passed the bluff where the castle now stands while heading west into unknown lands. Evidence of Deer, Horses, Mammoth and Rhinoceros all point to plenty of hunting opportunities for the first peoples to arrive after the ice retreated. A mammoth tusk can be found in the Windsor Museum.
For the next eight thousand years or so, hunter gatherers and later on, farmers left their mark on the landscape. The Thames valley is awash with flint tools and the evidence of their manufacture.
Windsor is best known for its Royal connections. The world-famous Windsor Castle is almost one thousand years old and a visit to this royal residence is certainly top of the list of things to do in Berkshire.
Windsor Castle one of the homes of the British Royal Family and brings with it all the pomp and ceremony of the royal household. The regular changing of the guard ceremony, state visits of foreign dignitaries and even the occasional Royal Wedding means there is always something to see.
There are many excellent restaurants in Windsor. If you are thinking of eating out in Windsor you won't be disappointed. Read our restaurant reviews (written by local residents) for an objective opinion of where to eat at a price to suit your budget.
The glorious River Thames runs through the heart of town offering great opportunities for mucking about in boats. Our public leisure centre and swimming pools rival private gyms in terms of both quality and facilities. The gym looks out directly onto the riverside, making getting fit a real pleasure. The river is also home to the famous white swans. The annual Swan Upping ceremony is just one of the ways we keep a good track of the health and wellbeing of these beautiful birds
The Great Park is home to some of the oldest oak trees in England along with the world famous Savill Gardens, Virginia Waters and Valley gardens. Open all year round the Park offers many lovely walks and is a great way of exploring England's beautiful wood and park land. The changing seasons bring new and beautiful things to discover on each time you visit and is a real delight for horticultural and nature lovers alike.
Add to all that, the thriving local Theatre scene with both the Theatre Royal and Windsor Arts Centre offering regular entertainment, loads of restaurants and bars and you have the recipe for a truly wonderful town that delights both visitors and residents alike.
