Description from owner
Luxurious 2 double bedroom House in the beautiful town of Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. With excellent transport links to Central London (38 miles) and Oxford (20 miles) this house is perfect for tourism or business. Free parking and Wifi.
This newly renovated Luxurious 2 double bedroom House is located in central Henley-on-Thames, one of the oldest settlements in Oxfordshire. It is a bustling, historic, riverside, market town, home to the Henley Royal Regatta and is well known for its rowing tradition as well as having many other unique features to its name. Situated an 45 minutes west of London, and in easy reach of Oxford, Windsor, Marlow and Reading, the town has much to offer the visitor, business and its 10,000 or so residents, whilst supporting the many small, attractive villages in the countryside around.
The town's prosperity goes back to the 12th century as river trade developed because of the town's position. Today there is a comfortable mix of architectural styles spanning the centuries. The Tourist Information Centre itself is a fine example of painstaking restoration to preserve the details of one of Henley's older buildings.
Henley offers a wide range of attractions whether you simply want to take a quiet trip on the river, visit the art galleries, visit historic houses, enjoy the River & Rowing Museum, rummage through antiques, browse fashion shops, or simply stroll, eat and drink in relaxing surroundings. Henley prides itself on its strong retail offering with the main shopping area being concentrated in Bell Street, Duke Street, Market Place and Hart Street. There is an abundance of hotels, pubs, cafes and restaurants.
The River and Rowing Museum in its award-winning building is proving to be a magnet for those who want to visit the Wind in the Willows permanent display, learn about the history of rowing, the mighty Thames and, of course, the town.
The house is situated 5 minutes from central Henley. There is a railway station, cab and bus stop within a minutes’ walk. You will also have access to local shops e.g Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Waitrose, Boots, WHsmith, as well as a Post Office.
The Angel on Bridge, Pub & Restaurant is only a 5 minute walk. Described as a warm, welcoming and cosy pub, the Angel on the bridge is Henley’s only pub on the Thames and attracts many visitors to the town. During the summer the riverside terrace offers outdoor eating, socialising and a relaxing area to escape and watch the river go by. Shared with the local swans and wildlife the Angel on the Bridge is a popular place during the day and evening.
Excellent restaurants and bars all within walking distance include The Henley Brew House, housed in what was formerly a Victorian police station, The Henley Brew House is a charming free-house pub in the centre of the bustling market town of Henley-on-Thames. Boasting a tastefully decorated lounge, bar and dining area, it is also home to our very own micro brewery. The Little Angel, Three Tuns, Hotel Du Vin, La Bodega, The Giggling Squid, Villa Marina, La Bodega and Spice Merchant are just a few of the other great eating places in Henley.
You have the choice of lovely walks or boat trips along the river Thames.
Nearby is Oxford, The City of Dreaming Spires, is famous the world over for its University and place in history. For over 800 years, it has been a home to royalty and scholars, and since the 9th century an established town, although people are known to have lived in the area for thousands of years. With its mix of ancient and modern, there is plenty for both the tourist and resident to do. Whether it’s visiting one of the many historic buildings, colleges or museums, going out for a drink or a meal, taking in a show or shopping till you drop, Oxford has it all.
Windsor is only a 25 minute drive, it is home to two of the UK’s Top 20 visitor attractions, Windsor Castle and Legoland Windsor Resort, but there are many more to visit and enjoy throughout the borough. Why not add Eton College, the Changing of the Guard, the Savill Garden, Ascot Racecourse, Royal Windsor Racecourse plus many others, to your itinerary for the perfect trip.
London is only 45 minutes where you have the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, and Buckingham Palace. The London Eye is also a short distance from here or you can take a train directly from the Apartment to Charing Cross (Trafalgar Square) via London Bridge which only takes 21 minutes. This takes you to within a walking distance to one of the world's most famous square, The Trafalgar Square, with Covent Garden, Buckingham Palace, and the London Eye; the world’s largest observation wheel offering spectacular views of the London skyline, all within a walking distance.

- Very Good
Don't let the outside put you off... Lovely standards all throughout the interior.... Within walking distance of downtown Henley on Thames... A great base to visit so many places...
Das Haus ist sehr schön, auch relativ zentral zum Ortskern gelegen. Es war so weit sauber und in Ordnung.
“well equipped home in good location”
The house had plenty of space for 4 adults, open plan living, dinning and kitchen areas with everything you needed for a comfortable stay, it really is like home from home. As other reviews have said the house is on a residential estate but it is quiet and an easy 5/10 min walk to town and river. We have stayed in one of the small terraced cottages right in town previously but to be honest I much prefer the space and comfort of this property. The town has lots of quality shops bars and restaurants, lovely walks and park areas by the river. Easy access to lots of tourist attractions by car or train. The only negative points I would say are having no curtains or binds at any downstairs windows or in the bathroom which is on the front of the house, it really would benefit from something at the living room and bathroom windows. The lovely focal fire as shown in the pictures is damaged, looks as though someone had tried to light an actual fire in it and had caused quiet a bit of damage to the stone and pebbles. All in all I would recommend this property to family and friends.
“Visit to Henley”
House is ideally located for a short walk into centre of Henley. House contained all we needed, but no smoke alarm. Outside could not be used as it was overgrown and only had two chairs.
Owner's reply: Hi Robert, Thank you for your review and I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay. For your information there is a smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector at the top of the stairs. Best regards Peter
