“Ian was a lovely host who was interested to get to know a bit about me and tell a bit about himself when I arrived over a cup of tea. After that we were both very busy so unfortunately we didn't get a chance to catch up before I left but I had a really good stay. Check-in with the little key pad box at the door was super easy and meant that I didn't have to worry about losing the key while I was out and about. The room was a bit bigger than it looked in the picture and there was a nicer little table/desk than in the picture so that was great, very useful. There was the opportunity to use the living room and kitchen as well, and the lovely garden with views of the make beyond. Very reasonably priced too, really can't fault, so would stay again in future if the opportunity arises.”
Clean and friendly home close to University, Hospital and Reading town centre. Off road parking, on suite shower room and access to a shared bath. Please email if you are interested.
“This is a lovely place to stay, and the room was actually more spacious than I expected. Emma and her husband are very accommodating and made sure I had everything I needed. I would recommend ear plugs for those who aren't used to living near a busy road, but the room was fantastic value for money with a private ensuite and comfortable bed.”
Beautiful thatched cottage, with 3 double bedrooms, 2 ensuite bathrooms. The beamed sitting room leads onto a split level patio for dining under a gazebo. The kitchen is very well equipped. In the large secluded garden is a walled swimming pool with changing facilities, plus cedar hot tub with decking. Large, private parking area. The hot tub is available year round by prior arrangement, the swimming pool being available from May until September. All adjacent to a country footpath and farmland.
“With the current pandemic we are currently experiencing, it was a really hard decision whether myself and my other half should come.. we are so glad we did! As soon as we arrived, we received a lovely welcome from Jean (at a distance of course) who told us what to do. From that point, we were in communication with the hosts on a daily basis! It was lovely to step into a cottage where it feels as though you have backtracked to many years ago. The grounds are simply stunning. The annexe itself is beautiful and unique. The hospitality was 100%. However if you are tall (my other half is 6ft 4), be careful of the door frames. I found myself shouting DOOR every time he wandered into the kitchen and bathroom. The beds were very comfortable and we were definitely not in short supply of any amenities! The kitchen is small, you can only fit one person in (without wrestling one another to get back out) otherwise it was completely cosy! If you're looking for a comfortable, snug and picturesque cottage please give Pond Cottage a go. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and look forward to taking back my Mum and her husband (as originally planned but Covid-19 prevented this from happening). Once again, thank you for a lovely stay Keith and Jean.”
