About the property

4 Bedrooms, Two Bathrooms, Newly Renovated, Family Friendly

Our beautiful holiday home is in the stunning and quintessentially English riverside town of Marlow in Buckinghamshire. The house is newly decorated and furnished with modern, tasteful furniture.

The property has three floors and has three double bedrooms and a bunk room for those with children. Fantastic open plan entertaining space which comprises of the dining room, kitchen and glass doors which fold back to the outside space. Well equipped kitchen, as we love cooking!

This is a home away from home. It's very much a holiday home, with neutral modern tasteful decor and with no Owner clutter that you might find in other houses. Our home will be very much your home!

Location, Location, Location! We are two minutes walk away from Marlow High Street, which is full of high end shops and restaurants (there are also Michelin starred restaurants in the area). Our favorite traditional pub is a short 2 min walk away. We are also perfectly positioned for riverside walks, as the park and river is a few minutes down the road. We are in close proximity to the local station (5 min walk) and there are regular trains into London (50mins) or a 40 min drive. We are a 20 min drive away from Windsor Castle and 45 mins from Oxford.

About Heather

We are a family who now live in Bermuda, but originally lived in Marlow. We met in the High Street when we were 16 and we have been together for 22 years and now have two children. We wanted to buy a place for us to return to when we visit the UK, as we are fed up in staying in hotels - or "chinzy" vacation rentals. We really love Marlow - especially the park, and the river it is such a beautiful town and we wanted our children to grow up with a connection to it.

Heather purchased this house in 2013

An oasis of comfort and tranquility in the heart of Marlow

  • 4 of 5

Heather has created an oasis of comfort and tranquility in the heart of Marlow conveniently placed for everything that this delightful little town has to offer.The house is so well equipped with just about everything we could possibly need to make our stay comfortable, with the small exception of a foot stool in the lounge - I do like to put my feet up whilst watching TV nowadays! There were even packets of our favourite Earl Grey and Rooibosch teas in the kitchen, although presumably left by previous guests with similar good tastes.

Parking, it has to be said, is a bit of a challenge, especially during working hours. I recommend that whenever a spot becomes available outside the house you get someone to stand in it while you retrieve the car as quickly as possible from wherever you managed to park it!

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would be more than happy to book again when we return to Marlow.

PS Maria has just asked me to mention that a butter knife would be nice as it is not easy spreading butter on toast with a steak knife!

Modern comfort - home away from home in the UK. Perfect for little kids

  • 5 of 5

We rarely return to rental properties- but this is now the third time we have stayed at Heather's home. I think the keys to why its perfect for us are a) this was their home so its the quality level that you would want for your primary residence b) it is up to date/modern with good water pressure, hot water, washer/dryer, microwave, etc. all that you need and more c) it is comfortable and stylish without being tragically so d) its right next to town and the train station and the playground e) they have kid/toddler items. The only thing to caution people about is that the stairs are quite steep and there is no loo on the ground floor- so its not for people with limited mobility.

INCREDIBLY UPSCALE HOME for a great price

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed in this perfect home just steps from the high street in Marlow over our Christmas vacation. It truly is a home away from home. We LOVED the unique restaurants and coffee shops just 1/2 block from our front door. This little village and home was perfectly suited for our family!

An excellent celebration in a great town.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Marlow. No. 18 Station Road is a perfect base for shops, restaurants and The River Thames. The house is very tastefully furnished and well equipped. The grandchildren were excited to sleep in bunk beds for the first time and enjoyed the games and books provided.

The parking could have been an issue but we had friends around the corner where we were all able to leave our cars.

We much preferred staying in this lovely cottage than a hotel. It gave us the flexibility to have friends and family join us and all go out to celebrate my 70th birthday in the many good restaurants just around the corner.

Marlow is a perfect location any time of year.

We would love to return. Thank you Heather.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Well-equipped home exceptionally located around the corner from the high street. Marlow itself is a lovely little town with great restaurants and shops. It is a little out of the way without a car, but not an issue once you figure out the Marlow rail station schedule. Great property owners and manager. Highly recommend this property.

The Propety is 4 minutes away from lovely river walks along the River Thames and the fantastic Higginson Park. To be honest there is plenty to do in Marlow and the surrounding area. For those wanting to sightseeing and travel further afield - Windsor castle is a short 20 minute drive away. The house is close to the local station - trains into London take around 45 minutes. We are also a 40 minute drive away from the historic city of Oxford.
