AVAILABLE FOR OLYMPICS!
PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR FINAL DATES AND PRICES :-)
I offer TWO clean, fresh rooms in a great location for access to excellent amenities and attractions.
(If my calendar shows as date as 'unavailable' is is possible that I still have space so please do contact me with your inquiry.)
Attractions within walking distance include:
Maidenhead Bridge and Rowing Club
Ray Mill Island
Riverside Gardens picnic and play area
Taplow Board and Ski
...some of the best Michelin starred restaurants in the world!
(Heston Blumenthal's The Fat Duck and the Roux brothers' Waterside Inn in Bray Village as well as others nearby).
We are served well by fast trains to London, Reading, Oxford and the West Country via Maidenhead Station.
Local trains and buses run regularly to Windsor Castle, Eton, Henley, Cookham, Marlow and other such beautiful towns and villages.
LEGOLAND is about a 15 or 20min drive and buses there are easy enough. In fact, the local and national bus network from here is excellent all round. (Heathrow buses stop a couple of hundred yards from our front door).
Also, we are just two miles from the M4 junctions 7 and 8/9 so it's easy to get anywhere from here.
Lifts from Heathrow or the railway station may be available for a small fee.
Maidenhead town centre is a ten minute walk away and you can get anything you want there (including cycle hire) but even closer is a newsagent, laundry, cafe, some great restaurants/pubs/ takeaways and a first class supermarket..
The gym, pool, roller skating and leisure centre are a very short walk from here and there is a big bowling alley and laser quazar place next to that. There are lots of fitness classes and fun things to do there every day as well as special events in the evenings and over the holidays - perfect for rainy days! There's also a Multiplex Cinema in the town centre.
On a nice day, however, the best thing to do right here is to relax by the river with a book and a picnic, watching the boats and the ducks go by, or to take a stroll along the pretty tow path to ogle the riverside homes of the rich and famous!
If you like cycling, or longish walks, the route along the Thames's tow path to Windsor and then back again along the Jubilee River via Dorney, is simply idyllic, really beautiful. I highly recommend it!
Add us to your favourites for a super weekend break!

Self-employed, happy and glad to be able to welcome new friends to dinner or breakfast... ...or lunch! I've had lodgers here for years on and off but have recently enjoyed hosting foreign students for short visits and would now like to offer a place to adults who are looking for somewhere to stay over the Olympics period or other special events, such as the Queen's Jubilee or, simply, for an enjoyable short break from home. This area's got a great deal to offer and I'd love to share it with you.
