Standing on the banks of the upper reaches of the River Thames on the Cliveden Estate, this delightful cottage has been recently redecorated throughout and is comfortable and charming. It has immediate access to Cliveden's outstanding woodland and riverside walks, and a small garden overlooking the river- a wonderfully peaceful setting and yet under an hour from London. The cottage is a short walk from our other holiday cottage, Ferry Cottage, ref 002002.

South East England

The dense population of the south-east of England may not make it the obvious choice for a holiday destination, but that's to under-estimate or overlook many of its hidden charms. The Isle of Wight may well be the most obvious holiday destination in the area and the short ferry crossing really does take you to a unique holiday destination. Further east, the scenery is varied yet distinctive with the South Downs rolling down to the cliffs at Beachy Head, the sparsely wooded heathland of the Ashdown Forest and the intricate landscapes of the Weald. Closer to London are some gems which equally deserve a weekend away or longer holiday, including the majestic Thames Valley with its magnificent historic houses and beautiful varied countryside, offering some of the most beautiful scenery in Southern England. Kent, meanwhile, deserves its title of the Garden of England and the National Trust protects some of the best stretches of countryside and many fine houses and outstanding gardens. Apart from houses such as Bateman's, much-loved family home of Rudyard Kipling, the enchanting Bodiam Castle, Petworth House and Park with its sumptuous interiors and rolling parkland, Polesden Lacey on the North Downs and Chartwell, family home of Sir Winston Churchill, the Trust also owns several glorious gardens including Nymans Garden, Sheffield Park Garden and Sissinghurst Castle Garden.

    Heart achingly beautiful

    Arrived to spend Christmas and found the cottage under several centimeters of snow - heart achingly beautiful! Pantomime in Windsor on Christmas Eve, and drinks at the Feathers on Christmas Day all made for a memorable and happy time, especailly with some more of our family next door in Ferry Cottage. Perfect !

    New Cottage is a real gem

    New Cottage is a real gem. Barely an hour from central London and yet a haven of peace and tranquility in the most idyllic setting. Cosy, warm and welcoming with the Thames floating past the front door and the resident ducks delighted to see you. A gorgeous cottage for 4 people.
