Old Windsor weekend
It was beyond our expectations. Beautiful garden for all of us, amazing view to Windsor Castle and stunning wild flower meadow garden. Hamish and Susie were very welcoming, a very good welcome hamper which we were not expecting. The Lodge is very well equipped and a delight to stay in. Hamish even came late Saturday evening when an alarm went off and sorted it. Would highly recommend.
Dream cottage in ideal location next to Windsor Great Park
Our second stay in this wonderful cottage, warmly hosted by Hamish and Susie. Immaculately clean, comfortable and very well appointed accommodation. Kitchen equipped with everything you’d need for a family stay and a much appreciated welcome pack to get us off to a great start
Thanks again and look forward to our next visit!
Peaceful location in perfect setting with easy access to many attractions
This was the perfect place to relax and spend time with family visiting from NZ. Friends dropped by during our stay to share meals in the charming garden. The cottage was comfortable, warm and well equipped. The glorious weather throughout was a bonus.
We walked/cycled in the Great Park, visited Windsor Castle & Legoland, boated on the Thames & took the train to London for a whistle stop tour.
Thank you Hamish and Susie.
Fantastic cottage with lovely views of the Castle
We enjoyed our 4 night stay at this quintessential cottage - it has a lovely garden with a great view of Windsor Castle. The cottage is spacious and warm. It's on the edge of Windsor Great Park. Hamish was very helpful - he even got out some Brio train track for our 5 year old son! Many thanks for a great stay.
Brilliant property and great hosts...
The Lodge is well equipped and in a beautiful location. Hamish is a lovely host and very welcoming. Highly recommended.
Fantastic little gem. Cosy and extremely comfortable and surrounded by nature.
Fantastic. Wonderful hosts and s wonderful place. We only stayed for 4 nights but felt relaxed and rested. The view of Windsor castle from the kitchen is magical as was the welcome basket of goodies including wine. We will be back.
