The Details...

Historical from the outside, modern and luxurious on the inside, Church House makes for a truly memorable holiday escape. This Grade II listed Victorian church was originally built in 1850 but was renovated in 2017 to become the perfect retreat for families and friends.

Surrounded by the Berkshire countryside the property has excellent links to London, Ascot, Henley-on-Thames, Windsor, Reading, Newbury, and Basingstoke. Despite its conversion many of the church's original features have been maintained, such as the bell tower with its flint fronted walls, the vaulted ceilings, and stained glass windows.

This is then blended with state-of-the-art touches, including bespoke feature lights, fully fitted Italian 'Doimo' kitchen, and 'Smart Home' technology, WiFi and a security system. The large lounge area is dotted with stylish furniture, the cosy snug has a large TV, and there's a study and mezzanine gallery above. For some added luxury, guests can also relax and unwind in their own private hot tub.

Church House is able to offer lots of 'little extras' to make your stay memorable, from welcome platters, celebration cakes and professional catering to entertainment. Our lovely team will come to Church House for fun activities: we have a Yoga teacher, Mixologist, Ice Sculpture Company, Murder Mystery Troop and a Beautician offering pamper parties and treatments.

The sleeping arrangements are designed to be flexible in order to cater for groups of all shapes and sizes. The snug and the gallery on the ground floor both have two sofa beds each, allowing four people to sleep across the two spaces - ideal for children or small adults. On the first floor is the master bedroom, which has a king size bed and a freestanding bath for added luxury as well as an en suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms with king size beds on the second floor, one of which has an en suite shower room. The other two share the family bathroom with freestanding bath and shower. All the king size beds can be split into singles if required.

Outside is a 1.1 acre landscaped garden with patio and barbecue, with a large grassed area that's ideal for croquet or bowls. Although located in the peace and quiet of the country with several walks and bike rides right on the doorstep, after just a short journey guests can be in Reading is with its shopping opportunities, while London Paddington is only 29 minutes from here by train. Horse racing fans can visit nearby Ascot and Newbury Racecourses, while history buffs should take a trip to Windsor Castle.
