About Lesley Bishop
Town Green Farm is my passion! I have lived here with my husband since 1997. Having retired from my equestrian pursuits, I decided to refurbish the Gatehouse to a high standard and begin self-catering rentals. I call myself the 'estate manager' so I am on hand if you need information, help, or perish the thought, if something stops working (rare). Please read our reviews which will tell you more about me.
Lesley Bishop purchased this House in 1997
Why Lesley Bishop chose Englefield Green
This quiet, private location is a rarity. You will think you are staying in the country. Yet we are very convenient as a base to explore London or many of the tourist attractions in the south of UK. We are also close to many important sporting events inc. racing at Ascot, Henley, Smiths Lawn Polo, Wentworth and Sunningdale golf.
What makes this House unique
A rural location away from the rat race, yet with easy access to London (Waterloo - 34 mins), and the M25/M3/M4/M40.

Vacation Base Camp
Charming and enchanting cottage. This cottage in Windsor is a great base to see much of England. We went all the way to Canterbury and Dover in a day-only to come back to a clean and quiet place to stay to rest. It is very easy to go to London on the train and you can easily drive on over to Stonehenge as well. Lesley is very accommodating and makes sure that you are very comfortable. The property is like a big garden overflowing with flowers. Getting into the heart of Windsor is only about a 5 minute drive-so easy! We did so many day trips from the cottage, and it was so nice to come back at night to a quiet and relaxing getaway. Highly recommend this place. I hope we can come back one day.
A delightful, friendly family from the USA. It was a real pleasure to meet them. They left our property in excellent order. It would be lovely to see them again.
Lovely property with character plus plenty of space outside for our dog.
Great property and ideal for us as with have a dog that needs lots of exercise. Location excellent for Windsor and the Great Park (plus other areas in the vicinity). We stayed over the Easter weekend so didn’t want to travel too far. With Savill Gardens and the entrance to the Park just over a mile away (car needed), this was spot on for us. Good selection of restaurants nearby. The Fox & Hounds was ideal as it allowed dogs plus we could sit outside in their front garden. Food good also. Lesley was very helpful and on hand should we have needed it. Overall a peaceful and relaxing weekend we thoroughly enjoyed.
Lovely, quiet family with a very well behaved dog. These guests left our property is very good order and I would recommend them without hesitation. We hope we may see them again.

Magical Christmas Holiday
Everything about our visit was utterly exquisite. From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, we were treated with warmth, friendliness and a hospitality that would be extremely difficult to surpass. We were welcomed with open arms and throughout our stay, the owners were very attentive to our needs whilst not being at all intrusive. By the end of the holiday, it felt like we'd become part of the family.
The layout of the Gatehouse makes it a unique, charismatic and really fun place to stay. The added magic of Christmas made it feel like we were in our very own romcom. The property is decorated beautifully and features all mod cons and is incredibly warm and cosy. We all agreed that we enjoyed some of the best sleep we'd experienced for a long time as the beds were extremely comfortable. Views from the upstairs rooms look straight out onto the fields and woodland.
Nearby are many attractions of historic interest and natural beauty which make this property a must for anyone wanting to visit nearby Windsor Castle, Great Park and surrounding area.
Thank you so much for making our Christmas amazing and for giving us lifelong memories of a beautiful holiday. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property to anyone who is looking for something completely different and out of the ordinary.
And how lucky was I to have such friendly, cheerful and appreciative guests staying with us over Christmas. Just perfect! 'Auntie' would be overjoyed to have you all stay again. Lovely, lovely people. Grab them if they want to book.
Lovely Gatehouse cottage near Virginia Water
Lovely Gatehouse on an impressive former Farm Estate. Enough privacy in combination with a very welcoming owner. We felt right at home.
Lovely area with the Windsor Great Park next door and the beautiful Savill Garden around the corner. Windsor Castle within 10 minutes, Londen City center 35 minutes by car or train. For golfers this is a location made in heaven, with Wentworth, Sunningdale and other magical courses in the neighborhood.
Wonderful guests from Holland. They looked after our Gatehouse so well and even stripped the beds on departure. They are friendly and easy going and I would recommend them immediately.
Wonderfull stay at a beautifull property
We had a great time in the gatehouse and Lesley made us feel very welcome. Our boys spent times with all the animals, a perfect plays to stay when you love the countryside and want to visit London and all the other interesting places.
Wonderful, friendly guests, who left our property in an immaculate condition. The boys were delightful and I thoroughly enjoyed introducing them to all our animals. I do hope I will get the opportunity to welcome them again.
