Where you’ll be

Sonning Eye, England, United Kingdom

Conveniently located for business or pleasure in the Thames Valley, including Henley Royal Regatta, Oxford and Windsor. Pick up from Reading or Twyford railway stations possible. Close to a backwater of the river Thames, with great walks along the towpath and in the hills above. Possible to arrive by river, with a slipway for small boats and canoes a short distance away. George Clooney, Jimmie Page and Theresa May are amongst many celebrity locals.

Some great places to eat in walking distance include Sonning's popular bistro style Coppa Club and the historic Bull coaching inn, plus the Flowing Spring, Shoulder of Mutton and Crown pubs. There's great entertainment at the Mill at Sonning dinner theatre, which is just a short walk away as is the famous and award-winning French Horn hotel and restaurant.
