From the owner

In 2016 the cottage had a complete makeover, freshly decorated, new ensuite bathroom, new carpets etc.

There are 3 bedrooms, one double with king size bed, one with double bed and a single. The cottage is fully equipped, and has a wood burning fire. There are many walks around the estate and beyond, as well as a lovely pub and restaurant within easy walking distance. There are some areas of special interest for wildlife enthusiasts and birdwatchers, and also carp, coarse and trout fishing available on the lakes. There is bike rental facilities on site. The cottage does have TV and Wi-fi internet access.

During school holidays/Peak times we have a minimum 3 night stay.

The pool is heated, and there’s also a sauna. Its shared and a short walk from the cottage. There is also a children play area, trampoline, tennis court, soccer pitch and picnic area by the pool. Great area for cycle rides and walking, both round the estate and nearby area's.

NB this property does not have access to ArtSpa, and the spa doesn't allow casual bookings. There is however a good Spa at the Waterpark and I can supply details.

Property is next to the Thames path, and the fledgling river Thames runs past the wooden deck at the back of the cottage.

Further details

We ask for 100 pounds deposit to secure the dates you require, with Balance to be paid 4 weeks before arrival.

Further details outdoors

Parking for one car directly by the cottage. Some additional parking may be available by the tennis courts.
The estate is very proud of its untouched nature reserves, and has areas of some significance when it comes to bird and wildlife.
Late in 2005 the first European Beavers introduced back into England were released and are thriving in a far corner of the estate.
There are viewing hides from where they can be watched.
The estate is also home to a wide range of Bird life, from waterfowl to owls.
Details of guided walks and the best spots are available from the property or the estate office.
There is some excellent fishing on the estate, both coarse fishing and fly fishing.
The coarse fishing is specialised and mostly specimen fishing, and the lakes would be classified as 'challenging' and not really suitable for beginners. As a tenant you are able to fish (within the estate fishing rules) details of which are available at the house.
