We enjoyed a fabulous stay at Rafts over the Christmas period. The cottage is perfectly located for the shops and restaurants of Eton and Windsor, with so many options within a few minutes walk. The riverside setting is a real bonus. Even though it wasn’t...More

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...More

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...More

About the neighbourhood
The area is amazing! You can call this a city, country, or village retreat, because it's all here or very nearby! We are in the heart of Eton, directly on the River Thames and facing Windsor Castle across the river. Windsor town is a stone's throw away; accessed simply by walking 2 min across the nearby pedestrian bridge. We have a dock directly on the river in the front of the home, and your private mooring can be arranged, should you desire to come by boat! We are about 25 min from Legoland and 20+ min by train to London (depending which station you go into).
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: London Heathrow : 9.0 km

Our property is about a 20 min drive from Heathrow airport (all depending on traffic, of course!). You can rent a car, or take Uber, a taxi or a bus. There are 2 train stations just across the river (5-15 min. walk) that will take you into London or other points throughout the UK. Once here, there are loads of places to walk: around Eton; throughout Windsor; the Brocas park and riverside trails just outside the property.
