About Laurie Davies

Tim & I live in the main house with our 3 teenage daughters Hollie, Sam and Izzy. Tim is a surveyor and I am a designer. Bob my Father also lives with us although he is often in Ibiza, if he is home he is either golfing or DIYing. Our girls are all artistic, love animals and shopping! We have 2 dogs and various cats! We are sociable, fun loving people who like to offer a warm welcome and help whenever we are able.

Laurie Davies purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Laurie Davies chose Reading

We originally built the lodge to use as an studio but got carried away and it ended up being the place where everyone wanted to stay when they came to visit. It is cosy but modern with bi folding doors overlooking the pool and garden. Its a great place to relax, work without without interruption or watch your favourite movie.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the area where we live because, turn right out of the property and you are in beautiful countryside, with lots of places to walk and great country pubs to rest in. Turn left and you have access to all that a big town has to offer, restaurants, shopping, nightlife and great transport links.

Lovely, lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I and our 2 young boys stayed at Laurie's place as a stop over for Legoland. We hadn't planned it that way but we completely landed on our feet! Laurie and Tim couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. They had thought of everything even down to a loaf of bread, milk, butter and eggs in the fridge!

The lodge itself is really cosy and clean, with plenty of space for 2 adults and 2 kids. The boys had a fantastic time in the pool and the grown ups had a fantastic time sitting by the side of it.

We are just now looking for an excuse to come back. Thanks Laurie and Tim!

The property was just as described and had everything we needed for our holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The property was fantastic and was an ideal base for our family holiday to Legoland. It has everything you could need and more and is ideally located to get away from it all. We all loved the swimming pool and Laurie and her family couldn't done enough to make sure our holiday was a pleasurable experience. I would highly recommend this property as it ticked every box I was looking for. We already plan to visit again soon in the not to distant future. Well worth a 5 star rating

Excellent spot to stay with great facilities

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful garden room, well equipped in a joyous fashion! Superb location - easy access to London - on a regular bus route to Central London trains from Reading. Self contained with all facilities needed for a short stay for a couple of people. We were made very welcome and the "apartment" at the end of their garden was warm and cosy and had all the mod-cons with safe parking too. Many thanks to our kind hosts - we look forward to visit again
