The Victorian Lodge (1876) is a charming and quintessentially English country cottage on a private estate once owned by King Henry 8th. The area is great for couples, families, country lovers, townies, food lovers, gardeners, riders, polo players, golfers and walkers too.
The Cottage is set on a quiet country road, directly opposite the magnificent Windsor Great Park, with spectacular views of Windsor Castle.
It's a super warm, super cosy cottage, with a lovely garden in a unique location, on a quiet and private estate of four houses. With private parking, polo ponies in the field opposite the Lodge, great walks, great pubs, Windsor, Thorpe Park and LEGOLAND just nearby, and central London only 35 minutes away by train.
The Cottage is only 5 minutes away from the Bishops Gate entrance into the Great Park, where you can walk forever, bike ride, horse ride, or just sit by one of the enormous lakes and lap up some of the stunning views. Take a walk in the famous Valley or Savill Gardens, watch a few chukkas being played at Guards Polo ground, or take a ride on one of our own retired polo ponies instead, by prior arrangement.
There is a traditional English pub only 5 minutes away, The Fox and Hounds in Englefield Green , situated by the Bishops Gate entrance into the Great Park , serving simply wonderful light bites, great pub food and smart restaurant food. It's the perfect place, and great for lunch, dinner, a snack or a BBQ, and a well earned rest after a walk in the Park.
The Lodge has everything you should need, with Sky+ satellite television, high speed Wi-Fi internet, DVD, and a roaring log fire in the sitting room. A Queen size Master bedroom has an adjoining bathroom, a second bedroom with new twin beds that can join to make a King size bed, a study / third bedroom with a small double sofa bed, and two travel cots and two fold out single beds if also needed. The second bathroom has a bath and power shower, and the utility room has a washing machine, dishwasher. microwave and tumble dryer.
