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 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.

"Our best Christmas Ever in the Perfect House!"
I have just been in the UK for Christmas and stayed at this glorious house with my family. It is even better than in the pictures and is surrounded by wonderful countryside. The gardens look great even in the depths of winter. The bedrooms are beautifully cared for - I am very fussy about having high quality bed linen and luxury pillows and I was super comfortable. The owners are lovely and had left us a gorgeous Christmas tree which reached to the ceiling and was covered in designer decorations. We checked out four days before Christmas, but this was the highlight of our trip and having a hot tub and our own surround sound cinema was a real luxury. We are definitely coming back as soon as we can get a booking for next year! What I liked best is that this is clearly a real home, with carefully curated books and DVDs everywhere to borrow, woolly throws for snuggling in front of the log fire and a huge, open family kitchen and breakfast/ TV room where everyone can be together - as well as having separate formal living and dining areas for escaping the kids if need be. Brilliant!

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.

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.
