About our home

If you are looking to visit England our home is well located for all the main attractions! We are 30 miles west of London on a direct train line (fast trains take 35 minutes), and within 30 minutes drive you can be at Windsor Castle, Eton College, Legoland, Thorpe Park, Henley on Thames, and Ascot racecourse. Within 1 hour you can also get to Stonehenge, the ancient Oxford university colleges and the Harry Potter experience.

Our house is spacious, modern and very comfortable. It is in a quiet and safe area (great for children), with 4 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a large open plan family kitchen / dining room, games room /conservatory and huge lounge with an extra double sofabed. There is a well equipped garden with barbeque and terrace and we have a garage part converted to a gym.

As we have 2 boys there are plenty of indoor and outdoor toys, Xbox, Playstation, sky TV, bikes etc and we also have friendly cats (and would be happy to look after your pets).

Additionally we can possibly consider a car exchange.

Close by is the city of Reading with many shops, restaurants, cinema & leisure centre & the pretty villages of Sonning on Thames (George Clooney's home!) & Twyford (1.5 miles with food shops, pubs and restaurants.

Our house itself is in a quiet neighbourhood in a small village called Charvil. The countryside is on our doorstep - The front garden leads straight to fields, cycle paths, horse riding, lakeside walks and a lovely country pub (less than 10 mins walk.) There are tennis courts & a small play area right outside the front door and within a short drive are several golf courses and a country park with sailing and fishing.

We are a family of 4. Our boys are 13 and 15 years old and we both work (Claire in Human Resources and Peter in Retail Management).

We love travelling and have enjoyed several fantastic home exchanges over the last few years. They have both been wonderfully succesful and has inspired us to have another adventure.

We also have many friends and friendly neighbours who will help make your visit to our home welcoming.
