Lower Shiplake is an idyllic village on the River Thames. It's just 2 miles or a walk along the river Thames to the beautiful town of Henley-on-Thames. The area is made famous by the novel The Wind in the Willows and Three Men in a Boat and also by the World famous Henley Regatta, which attracts the world’s finest rowers. Other events are the Henley Festival of music and arts and the Henley Food festival.
The picturesque and affluent town of Henley-on-Thames has many old and beautiful buildings, a historic church, quaint old pubs, cosmopolitan café’s and a central market square filled with interesting stalls on market days.
There are wonderful walks and bicycle routes along the Thames and into the Chiltern Hills and boat hire is available. Within the area, there are many award winning and famous restaurants.
We like the area because it's beautiful, quaint, typically English and has a relaxing feel to it. Far from the rush of London but within just 50 or 60 minutes drive or train ride, we can be in London.
Many places are easily accessible by train. By car, you can reach the following places: city of Reading (15 minutes), Heathrow airport (40 minutes), Oxford (50 minutes), London (60 minutes), Stratford upon Avon (1 hr 40 minutes), the south coast beaches and the beautiful New Forest (1 hour 40 minutes), Bath (1 hr 50 minutes).
We are a couple who run our own training company business, whucih specialises in sales and customer service. We have an 11 year old boy and a 5 year old girl.
I (Debbie) love to write, dance and travel. Martin enjoys travelling and watching motor racing (he gave up the sport when we had our son).
We especially love to travel in the school holidays in February, April, May, August, October and December.
We particularly like warm places but we’d consider other options.
