Dorney Self Catering Apartment
from £79 /night help
Apartment | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 19
Gardeners Bothy, Wisteria and The Smithy, our three lovely apartments, set in the grounds of a Tudor house in the rural area of Boveney. The apartments, which are in a converted barn, are close to the River Thames, but only 15 minutes drive from the centre of Windsor. We have added to our apartments with Flo's Cabin. This cabin has three full size single sofa beds, but has no facilities (no bathroom or kitchen). It can be booked in addition to another apartment, but not on its own due to its lack of facilities.
London can easily be reached from Windsor, Slough or Taplow train stations. Legoland is only 15 minutes drive away. When block booked the apartments can sleep up to 19 people (some on full size single sofa beds).
We are ideally situated for all the local attractions: Windsor Castle, Legoland, boat trips along the Thames, Eton College, Odds Farm Park, Saville Gardens to name but a few.
Hen/Stag/Large Groups - book two consecutive nights and get a £100 discount! (minimum 14 people).

The Berkshire region
Dorney Self Catering Apartments are in a rural setting, a short walk from the River Thames. You can walk all the way to Windsor along the river path.
There is a large garden area next to the apartments, where families can play ball games together and a BBQ area with seating and tables.
A short drive takes you to the historic town of Eton and on the other side of the bridge is Windsor Town Centre and Castle (well worth a visit).
We have three local train stations which can whisk you into London or Oxford for a great days site seeing.

"Great Location but poor accommodation"
There are 2 problems I had with this rental.First, the 3 apartments for rent are all part of 1 renovated farm barn. In my opinion, having stayed in 2 of the 3 apartments, the barn should have been mad… More
We have a "comments questionnaire" for every guest but we did not have any comments form this guest at the time. Our mattresses are not brand new but they are not old. We note that they were not soiled (for avoidance of doubt). They are not lumpy. There can be noise from the apartment above but we do not know how loud the neighbours were. Generally, this complaint is not a complaint we have experienced before.

"Historical countryside ambience, with excellent location"
My family & I loved our stay at Dorney's Gardners Bothy apartment on our recent trip to the UK, from Australia. We discovered Dorney after weeks of trying to find suitable, well-priced accommodation for the five of us - that would be convenient for central London, but without the stress and strain of entering the deepest, darkest capital with toddlers and mountains of luggage.
Driving to Dorney from Heathrow was a breeze. And as we entered the Windsor-Eton area the beauty and history of this corner of England was a joy. The apartments are located near Dorney Common, an area used in TV programs such as a Midsomer Murders. But no sinister goings on - only the peaceful riverside location, and character-filled houses.
From Dorney everything nearby is accessible with ease. Local stately home Dorney Court has a cafe-play area at the Dorney Kitchen garden centre. Perfect for young Aussies needing to bounce around after being couped up on planes for 25 hours!
Windsor is a 30-40 minute walk along a delightful stretch of the Thames. With only swans and rowing Etonians rippling the still waters.
Best of all, when I had to visit central London for work, a quick train ride from Windsor Central (via Paddington) and I was right there. No hassles.
So, if you want a family friendly stay - in English picture postcard surrounds, only a short drive from Heathrow, Dorney is an excellent choice.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad you had an enjoyable stay with us at Dorney Self Catering Apartments. We hope to see you again soon.
