A little background information…
If you would like to spend the night in a pretty village with a village green, church and several good pubs, then Cookham Dean is the right spot. It is where Graham Greene spent the best days of his childhood and in later years it provided the setting for ‘Wind in the Willows’. Stanley Spencer also lived and painted in nearby Cookham, about 2.5 miles from our home, which now has a newly refurbished gallery dedicated to his work. The Thames is also in Cookham and there are plenty of woodland and riverside walks close to our home.
You would be camping in an acre of beautiful gardens with flowers, trees and vegetables. Our house is mock-Tudor and the gardens look over fields to both the front and rear. You would have the use of your own toilet, shower and tea/coffee making facilities in a separate building in the grounds with its own sheltered area with table and chairs.
We are well-situated for many major events and historic homes. You can visit the National Trust properties of Cliveden (5 miles) and Hughenden Manor (9.4 miles) as well as Windsor castle (14 miles). We are also close to Henley (9 miles) and Dorney (7 miles) where the Paralympic rowing events will take place.
Pubs are within walking distance and offer delicious lunches and dinner. One pub, The Jolly Farmer, is owned by the community. There is a range of shops station and a bus service in the next Village Cookham Rise, about 2 miles from our home.
We have already welcomed many national and international guests to our home and are delighted that they have all enjoyed staying with us. One couple commented "After arriving at the picturesque home of Genevieve and Nicholas, we received a very warm welcome and met a couple who went out if their way to accommodate all our needs. The garden and facilities far exceeded our expectations and we look forward to staying there again. We would highly recommend a visit."
If you like peace, tranquillity and a beautiful garden then we welcome you to enjoy it with us.
