We love Henley because it is beautiful, safe,upmarket, typically English and has a relaxing feel to it. It has many old and beautiful buildings, a historic church, quaint old pubs, award-winning restaurants, a theatre, a cinema, cafe's and a central market square filled with interesting stalls on market days. There are wonderful walks and bicycle rides along the river Thames and into the Chiltern hills, and boat hire is available. Easy access by car to all parts of England - London (under an hour) Oxford (45 minutes), Bath (1 hour 50 mins), Stratford-upon-Avon (Shakespeare) (1 hour 20 mins), Reading (20 mins), Legoland (30 mins), Thorpe Park (45 mins), Windsor and Eton (25 minutes), the south coast beaches and the beautiful New Forest (1 hour 40 mins), Heathrow airport (30 mins).
There are five of us, I am a tutor and my husband is a lawyer. We have three children aged 20, 18 and 12. We have a cat and 4 chickens, but if you prefer we can make arrangement for these to be looked after. We love travelling to new places, this is our second house swap, the first, to the USA worked wonderfully.
