My wife and I had the chance to stay at this house for 5 weeks and loved every minute of it. It's in a perfect cosy spot next to high street in Eton, a two minute walk to the train station, and the restaurants nearby are simply wonderful. Windsor Castle is visible from the house, and as an american I really loved the view!
The house itself has good amenities, fast wifi, BIG bathtubs (I really miss the huge tub in the master bedroom), and is delightfully quirky in its decoration and lighting. It's directly on the water with a spacious dock so we enjoyed feeding the swans and looking at the castle across the river. You have everything you need in one spot and it was so delightful to play house in such a gorgeous place.
The hosts were incredibly kind and gracious, and did everything they could to ensure that we had a nice stay. Would definitely go back as much as I can!
As regular visitors to Windsor, we’ve stayed in a dozen local hotels, B&Bs, AirBnB rooms, and rental apartments. This is UNIQUE. Forget the usual “peek-a-boo view of Windsor Castle” … the view IS Windsor Castle. My teenage son was awestruck, “I’ve never seen anything like this … Mom, there’s a wooden scull on the ceiling! … with Indian lamps coming out of it … what is this style?!” (Oriental Fantasy?) I cannot wait to come back in the spring, when the Eton boys get their first experience of rowing — and capsizing — in the Thames — right off the front deck. (And where swans and ducks are performing their morning ablutions as I type this winter morn.)
LOTS of cookware, three comfy beds (one king, two queens -- also untried a single futon in the den/snug — all ensuite, two with showers), a separate washer and dryer, good WiFi, iron/board, modern kitchen — basically everything you need in a home away from home. Five eateries that I visit every time I’m here are all within three minutes’ walk: Cote Brasserie, Bel & Dragon, Gilbey’s, Golden Curry, and Zizzi’s. Easy walk for groceries: Budgens four minutes' walk or Waitrose (a flat 10-minute walk if you follow Goswell Road, turn left just under the railway bridge and take the elevator up). Especially fabulous for families with teens — who can wander down Eton High Street to Zero3 and stuff themselves on teen food or to the Flaming Cow about four doors away — or anyone who wants to be in the center of Windsor and Eton life, on the Thames, with good thick walls, excellent heating, and double-glazing. And (hold onto your hats) a private PARKING SPACE right outside.
You can tell we love this place: it's both a vacation home and an experience.
