Sonning Common, Nr Henley, England
Sleeps: 16 Bedrooms: 8 Bathrooms: 2
Reddish Manor dates back to the 1500′s. It is located within walking distance of the village of Sonning Common. The Greyhound Pub is only a a few minutes walk and Henley is approximately 8 miles away.
The house is the principle residence of the owners, unlike our other houses, you will find personal belongings throughout the house (with exception of bedrooms). The house is owned by an interior designer and an antiques dealer and you will find lots of various collections of memorabilia crammed into every available bookshelf and cupboard. This is a fascinating house and retains many original features. The house is slightly unusual in that id does not have any en-suite bathrooms. There is a cloakroom on the ground floor and a cloakroom on the first floor. There are 2 bathrooms which have a traditional cast iron bath (circa 1920) and a sink only. There are no showers.
If you want to stay somewhere with real charm and character that’s a little bit “quirky” with a fabulous garden then you will love Reddish Manor, if you want power showers, surround sound systems, hot tubs then this isn’t the place for you!
