About the property

This beautiful unique 18th century cottage retains its original character combined with 21st century facilities and five star amenities.

Behind an automatic farm gate, Little Chauntry nestles at the end of a private, gravel, tree-lined driveway. It epitomises rural living and yet is less than one mile from railway stations (to London) and the M4 motorway. Little Chauntry is ideally situated a 15 minute car ride from Heathrow Airport and a short stagger to the local pub! A major supermarket is only a few hundred yards away. 15 minutes drive to Legoland.

There is secure parking for two vehicles ONLY on site. The cottage is sun-filled and warm with central heating and a cosy gas coal fire in the living area.

The conservatory area has a southerly aspect overlooking the cottage garden.

The Kitchen is equipped with all new European appliances and dining for eight.

There is ample & comfortable seating in the lounge.

The gadgetry includes three LED televisions (lounge, main bedroom and guest bedroom), free WiFi and very fast broadband.

Upstairs, there are two substantial-sized bedrooms and an optional foldaway bed which is suitable for a third child upon request. Linen, towels and hairdryers provided. The master with walk-in robe and the other with a private en-suite. Both bedrooms have SUPER KING SIZE beds which can be separated to king single beds. Travel cot and high chair available by request at time of booking.

Little Chauntry has full central heating.

Lake End Road, where Little Chauntry is located, leads into Dorney Village (1 mile), where the Olympic rowing took place and where cows graze on the common. 2 miles further is Eton College and historic Windsor, home to the Royal Family. The river Thames meanders close by and the village of Bray, where fabulous restaurants such as the Waterside Inn and the Fat Duck are located, is less than 5 miles away - approachable by road or by boat.

Other local attractions include Legoland, excellent shopping in Windsor, and high speed rail to London from nearby Slough station.

You don't need to go that far though to see working farms, stables, the Jubilee River wetlands and open countryside which is all at your doorstep!

The flexibility of this wonderful property makes it ideal for romantic getaways or holidays.

In addition, there is a beautiful wedding reception venue close by (Dorney Court) and Little Chauntry would be ideal for the wedding party to stay.

Perfect place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Little Chauntry. Everything was perfect. Very well equipped, down to the small details, very clean and beautifully decorated. The the hosts were very attentive and the booklet they put together for guests has everything you could need at your fingertips. The gorgeous garden was a pleasant surprise!! We wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy everything the cottage and the area has to offer. We will definitely be going back one day. Thank you for having us in your beautiful English cottage!!

Postively Charming!!

  • 5 of 5

The Little Chauntry Cottage was even better than advertised. Perfect location with quick access to shops and attractions like Windsor Castle. We felt like we were staying in the country even though we were only 20 minutes away from Heathrow. Our hostess went out of her way to make us feel welcome. We loved every moment of our stay and can’t wait to come back!

Never disappoints

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Little Chauntry. Our first visit was in the summer so we enjoyed the garden area but this time we enjoyed the fire and cosy feel of this beautiful cottage. The owners are easy to communicate with and know how to make guests feel comfortable. This time we were visiting Lapland UK and it’s location is great for this - about 20 minutes. We will definitely be back as our son wants to return to Legoland.

Perfect, quaint cottage In great location

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage is a such a treasure. Well decorated throughout. All the amenities are provided. Although slightly difficult to find in the dark, once you get your bearings, it's well worth the slight trouble of finding it. There is a kitchen with a dining room table that could fit 8, a living room with sectional, fire place, desk, and a patio and small garden outside. Upstairs, there is a full bathroom (toilet and large tub), large bedroom with walk-in closet, and another bedroom with its own full bathroom (toilet and shower). Both bedrooms have bed(s) that can be configured into 2 twins or 1 king for each room (4 twins or 2 kings). The cottage is situated in a small community with 2 other cottages nearby that are very quiet. We were not disturbed the whole time we were there. The Taplow area was perfect for access to everyday necessities (large grocery store one minute away) and Windsor (10 mins) and Highclere (45 mins) Castles. We also had a chance to go to Cliveden gardens (amazing even in the late fall/winter!) and Thai Orchid - an absolute MUST!! Such a joy staying at this perfect cottage!

Beautiful house in a quiet setting but close to services

  • 5 of 5

The pictures online start to reveal the charm of the house but can only go so far. In person the house is fantastic inside and out. Windsor is only a few minutes away by car. Great place to stay.
