Bray Cottages, Bray

Stay at one of these quintessentially English cottages, with a choice of two or three bedrooms, in the village of Bray on the River Thames. Clematis, Christmas and Tiggers Cottages are opulent and cosy. Enjoy fine dining, as in the UK only four restaurants hold the coveted three Michelin stars, and two of them are located in Bray!


Church House Berkshire, Grazeley

Stay in this contemporary converted 1850s church, which offers the wow factor with a modern contemporary design, perfect for a family and friends getaway for up to eight people, plus four more on sofa beds. The house itself offers many original features including vaulted ceilings with carvings and beautiful stained glass windows. There is a modern kitchen and a comfy lounge with a wood-burning stove, plus a snug/cinema room with a TV and X-Box.
