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.

You could think it may be densely populated and just home to the bustling metropolis of London, but don't underestimate the South East's capacity for hidden charms, secluded landscapes and shady nooks to catch your breath. There's lots to explore from the hazy meadows and pastoral valleys of the South Downs, the dazzling White Cliffs of Dover and the glorious gardens at Sissinghurst and Polesden Lacey.

    Made enjoyable..

    The New Cottage experience was excellent, the weather, the walks in Cliveden (including to the cafe for morning coffee and the opportunity to use WiFi). The cottage kitchen facilities were excellent, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom acceptable.
