Property description

A luxurious romantic Country Cottage near Henley-on-Thames offering peace, antiquity and tranquillity to the discerning traveller.

The property, themed on a Scottish Hunting Lodge, is a sumptuous yet quirky and romantic retreat which will welcome the sophisticated weary traveler or exhausted business professional with open arms.

Throughout the property ancient warrior artefacts abound none less so than in the imposing stairwell where you can imagine taking on the Scots headed by William Wallace at Bannockburn. In addition there are also many paintings portraying the beautiful Henley-on-Thames.

We now have two other properties which can be viewed from our UK website - be sure to have a look as you will find them equally if not more so enticing than St. Swithins!!!!

With the many gorgeous country walks to be enjoyed during the summer months and the combination of the two stoves, Aga cooker and warm furnishings transforming the house into a cozy retreat for the colder ones,


It is truly a perfect all year round.

It is a truly characterful period property dating, in some parts, to approaching 500 years old and offering the most superb range of facilities along with the Quintessential village pub for food and beverages, at the end of its own private drive, to relax in after a long hard day.

With both ample parking & living accommodation and luxury rooms it is the ideal ''Home from Home''!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Hi everybody my name is Dean Milroy and I moved into St. Swithins House, which is next door to St. Swithins Cottage, in 1990. Bizarrely between then and March 2004, when St. Swithins Cottage came into my hands, I also lived for a couple of years in St. Swithins Court, Twyford. So there must be some affinity between me and the Right Honourable Mr. St. Swithins! Anyway since 2004 I have transformed the cottage into a very special family home offering peace, antiquity and tranquillity to all who visit. Both my sons started their education in our village school which won the UK Primary School of the Year award in 1995. They are now continuing their education as polite, caring & thoughtful young gentlemen but it was this village that gave them the springboard in life. So a lot of good memories were created here and its time to let others experience wonderful times too. I offer you the joy and magic of the ancient St. Swithins Cottage!
