The Central Southern England region
Berkshire is a county of south east England, located to the west of London. It has also been known as the Royal County of Berkshire since at least the 19th century because of the presence of Windsor Castle. The perfect base to explore London and surrounding countryside.
With so many places to visit in Berkshire, you can easily forget you're right on London's doorstep. A number of towns, villages and beautiful countryside make this county the perfect antidote to busy life.
This romantic county is famous for being home to the Royal Family. Also renowed for the picturesque river views of the Thames and its many beautiful gardens blooming with colour. Windsor Castle, Eton college, Ascot Racecourse and Savill Garden are world famous attractions, all within easy reach of our Townhouse.
Berkshire is where Kate Middleton was born on the 9 January 1982 in the Royal Berkshire hospital in Reading. Kate lived in the quaint village of Buckleberry. She spent her school days in the village of Pangbourne in Berkshire. Berkshire is also home to many quaint towns and villages such as Hurley, Cookham, Bray, Littlewick Green, and Waltham St Lawrence.
There is so much to explore in beautiful Berkshire!
There is a lot to do for children of all ages (including some who have not yet grown up entirely!)
London is just 30 minutes away!

"Beautiful Accommodation in a fantastic location"
We stayed in 'The Henley' for my Dads 60th Birthday weekend . 6 adults and one baby . The accommodation was fabulous, designed and decorated to a very high standard with everything you would need included - even a travel cot . The owners were very helpful in the booking process to ensure our stay was perfect . Location is great, in the heart of beautiful Eton with Windsor and it's attractions a 5 minute walk away . I would definately recommend this property and hope to rebook again in the future .

"Fantastic location for exploring Windsor and Eton"
This townhouse was certainly luxurious with a fabulous view from the top-floor balcony. The location just by the river gave us a great opportunity to walk all over both Windsor and Eton. My favourite room was actually the upstairs lounge which is large and very comfortable. The only small disappointment was the equipment in the kitchen, with a lack of practical things like measuring cups etc, and a surplus of champagne flutes (although I am sure this would not bother some people). The free wifi was great and the apartment was decked out with some great technology, but regretfully not enough instructions.

This worked out even better than we could have hoped. We had a family reunion with members coming from USA, Finland and U.K. Using two houses we were able to give everyone enough space and flexibility to sleep and 'roll around'!! We were all able to congregate in one house for meals. The accommodation was really first class in every way with top of the line kitchen equipment as well as TV and sound systems. There was even outdoor space with a small terrace. The parking space is very convenient and although we did not have enough to accommodate all the cars we had, there were alternatives nearby.
Mr. Edwards was very helpful both before and during the visit. The location of the houses is perfect being far enough away from the town to be quiet but close enough to reach with a short walk. All necessary shops and restaurants are close by. This was agreed by all as being just perfect.

"Amazingly stylish townhouse and excellent location - perfect!"
We loved out time at the Eton townhouse. The pictures on the website are exactly what you get, the fixtures and fittings are of high quality and this is evident when you experience them. The townhouses have been built very recently and this is evident. The townhouse is literally across the bridge from Windsor, and is a perfect spot to walk to lots of nearby pubs and high street shops, as well as Windsor Castle and the train into London.
The townhouses are all in a row and I think fairly similar inside, except one is larger with an extra bedroom. Ours had 2 bedrooms and one of the children slept on the sofa bed up on the 2nd floor. This was a decent size and very comfortable, it had an innerspring mattress I think.
The townhouse has an excellent washer and dryer (one of the few combined ones I have come across that actually works well! - important with young children) and a decent sized real kitchen with lots of cupboard space for groceries. There is a Waitrose in Windsor, which is a short walk.The bathrooms were lovely with excellent water pressure and the towels of high quality. It really was like staying in a 5 star hotel but with the flexibility and space of a townhouse.
This was the sort of place you could also easily entertain friends, if you wanted to have people over for dinner for example.
Downsides? Hardly any. The carparking underneath / behind the townhouses was a bit tricky at times as the parks are tight. But it is all secure and well marked - just sometimes it seems people park in the wrong park. The other residents seemed understanding about it all. It was a bit noisy on a Friday night, but not enough to stop us or (more importantly) the children sleeping. Only the sort of noise of people walking past etc. It is not on a main thoroughfare but the corner street is the main route over into Windsor (for pedestrians). I think, compared to London, it would be pretty quiet.
I know the townhouses are relatively expensive to other accommodation in Windsor, but they really are a league above the other offerings. We have stayed in Windsor once before, in a perfectly reasonable townhouse that was probably half the price. But it was further from town and not nearly so nice. I consider the price of the Eton townhouse reasonable for the advantages it gives you over other offerings.
As a family with 3 young children, we chose to stay here rather than central London, as we could get a bigger apartment in a more suitable location. It was a short train ride into central London, and to be honest, it was a relief to escape the hectic pace of London to the more civilized Windsor and Eton. We also wanted to visit Legoland, and it is very handy for that. Legoland would have been difficult to visit from central London with small tired children. We could walk from our townhouse with a pram into Windsor easily. We ate out at a few restaurants and pubs in the area, nice to leave the car behind. I also enjoyed being able to walk into the shops when the children were in bed (with husband babysitting!). Husband also went on some lovely walks in the Great Park at night (when it was my turn to babysit!) and has some beautiful photos.
We stayed 9 nights, and in addition to Legoland for 2 days also visited Hampton Court, Savill Gardens (a definite must-see, especially in June when the roses are out) and Cliveden (a National trust property). We also travelled into London for 2 days. There was so much more we could have seen.
Coming from Australia, the area was also convenient for getting to Heathrow when it was time to go home.
In summary - we loved it and plan to go again. i would recommend it for people who would like to spend some time in London but also have some time further out - seeing places like Hampton Court, Kew Gardens, even Oxford is on the train line and not too far away. (And of course,,,Legoland!!).
Many thanks for your review - we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed all that our property had to offer. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

"The best place we have ever stayed!"
House is fabulous! We had great weather too and were able to use the sun terrace. Fitted out to a 'house of gardens' standard. So convenient for Windsor and Eton with everything on our doorstep. Loads of space of spread out for a family or group gathering.
We'd booked the house for a long weekend for my mum's 80th. We were all thrilled with it and had a super time.
Would definitely book it again.
