South Wing Of Large Country House With Indoor Pool And Spa Facilities,



Updated: 31-Oct-2016
South Wing of Country House in Englefield Green, Nr. Egham, Surrey, England - Secluded Rural Location With Easy Access To Windsor Great Park, Convient for Heathrow.

Please note we are closing during 2017.

The South Wing of a quality large country house in pristine condition with magnificent gardens and grounds close to Windsor Great Park on the Surrey/Berkshire border. Quiet location set on a rural lane and surrounded by its own land.

Presented to a very high standard with boutique style hotel decor in a neutral palette. Fully equipped. Spacious living accommodation is on the first floor (approx. 1250 sq. ft.). We offer 2 double bedrooms and one twin, each with its own bathroom; living/dining area and good sized kitchen.

Heated indoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna with shower and changing room for your sole use below on ground floor. (Please note the pool and spa are closed from 1st November 2016 and reopens for Easter 2017). The spa opens out onto a very large terrace which overlooks the gardens. Large table and seating for dining outside, as well as 2 sun loungers.

Secure gated property with entry phone. Ample off-street parking. Well situated for Windsor, Henley, Wentworth and Sunningdale golf, Royal Ascot. London is easy and fast to reach via mainline rail from Egham to Waterloo (30mins) and Heathrow airport is just 8 miles away.

This property is not suitable for young children so guests must be 13 years or over. This includes babies and toddlers. There is no room for negotiation on this issue, so please do not ask. Owners (2 of us) in residence to assist you if required.

Ideal for a relaxing weekend break or to explore the South East and London. Please be aware that we do not cater for those wanting to party, play loud music, etc. If you are looking for luxury and a friendly welcome, this is for you.

We are happy to accommodate from one to six guests and price accordingly, so the rate quoted on this site is rarely accurate. Ideal venue for a relaxing weekend break surrounded by country yet so close to London.

Our second property, a gatehouse (E18132), just over the courtyard can accommodate 6 guests so we can cater for larger groups. We also accept children 11 years and over in the Gatehouse. We will consider bookings for larger groups using both properties for special occasions such as hen parties, wedding preparations etc. In this instance, we offer use of the main house kitchen, dining room and lounge. We will do a one night stay for such occasions. Please note we do not accept visitors onto the property without prior consent as we have to obtain appropriate public liability insurance.

A fantastic weekend

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an absolutely amazing weekend away in Lesley's beautiful home. Her house is stunning and spotlessly clean and we had full use of our own private kitchen and living room. We also made use of the pool and sauna which were fantastic and beautifully kept.

Lesley was incredibly hospitable and supplied us with lots of local knowledge- from good takeaways to the best places for a wander. She was friendly and excellent company and gave us a sense that nothing was too much trouble.

She has a beautiful garden which we were welcome to explore and this property is definitely a highlight for animal lovers. She has chickens, a very friendly dog, ducks and hilarious parrots.

We would not hesitate in recommending this property to others. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and didn't want to leave! We would definitely stay again in a heart beat- both for the fantastic facilities and Lesley's brilliant hosting; she was mindful of our privacy whilst ensuring we had all we needed. A perfect balance.

Thanks for an amazing weekend, Lesley!

Perfect Anniversary!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!! An absolutely brilliant weekend. My wife and I are 25 and were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary and thanks to Lesley and her beautiful home, our celebrations were everything we wanted and more.

Lesley was an exceptional hostess. Her emails prior to booking and arriving were prompt and transparent. From arrival until we left, both Lesley and her Husband were a joy to be around. She was present whenever we needed her, but also respected our privacy. Lesley is definitely one of the highlights of this property.

The property itself is incredible. The grounds are beautiful; the location is within touching distance of everything. The house was immaculate and very well presented. We had everything we needed. The fridge was stocked before we arrived. The pool and Jacuzzi were great (there's a great sound system in there with a wide selection of music). It was just the 2 of us, but we had exclusive of the entire south wing.

If we could give more than 5 stars we would. I'm sure it wont be too long before we find an excuse to come and stay again

Thanks again Lesley :)

Owner's Response: What a delightful, thoughtful young couple you are! Certainly in the category of 'best guests'. I am honored that you chose to stay at our home for your 5th wedding anniversary. I am also pleased we got the balance right of 'looking after you' but also affording you privacy on this special occasion. You are welcome to return - or even just pop in to say 'hi', should you be in the area. Thank you for sharing my passion for Town Green Farm!

Perfect girly weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

What a brilliant girly weekend away we had! The property itself is spotless and well decorated, the pool, sauna and spa facilities are great! The grounds are beautiful too. The property had everything you could need, great kitchen and bathroom facilities, the little things were thought of like milk in the fridge, tea, coffee and sugar in the kitchen. Board games, DVD player and books were in the lounge, lovely toiletries in the bathroom, even cotton buds and cotton wool balls were provided! We were even given different coloured towels for the use of the pool, so we wouldn't get them confused. Lesley was the perfect owner/hostess, so friendly, hilarious and always making sure we had what we needed, going out of her way to make sure our stay was perfect. She gave great contact both before and after our stay and the deposit was returned so speedily. Also have to give a shout out to the resident dog for being so cute, and the hens for their delicious eggs! I even purchased some to bring home with me. I would love to come back, whether for a girly weekend, family stay or with my partner. Thanks so much for a great stay Lesley - just wish I could give more than 5 stars :-) This property stood out from the moment I saw it advertised and it more than fulfilled my expectations.

Fantastic Easter break

  • 5 of 5

Really beautiful house in a beautiful setting. Lesley is a lovely person and made sure everything was sorted out for our stay.

The pool and jacuzzi is lovely the girls really enjoyed it. Everything is very clean and well looked after.

The property sits just on the edge of Winsor park which is perfect for a day out.

Definitely be back soon for some of those free range duck eggs!

Worthy of 6 stars! Lesley is a wonderful hostess; warm, welcoming and ever so friendly.

The property is set in a quiet location yet only a short drive from Egham and Windsor. The gardens and grounds are beautiful. The accommodation is very well appointed; beautifully decorated and very, very clean.

There's everything you need to make a fab 50th birthday dinner party and Lesley is on hand the next day to prepare the pool and spa to aid your recovery!

Thank you for making our stay so relaxing. We'll be back.

Owner's Response: We are honoured that the 50th birthday took place here! Do, please, come back and see us again - even if it is just for that coffee in the garden. Or in my kitchen if it is mid-winter. So glad the property was right for your celebrations.
