Reddish Manor dates back to the 1500s, ensuring that those interested in history are sure to love this group accommodation in Henley. It is located within walking distance of the village of Sonning Common. The Greyhound Pub is only a few minutes’ walk and Henley is approximately 8 miles away.
The house is the principal residence of the owners, unlike our other houses, so you will find personal belongings throughout this group accommodation in Henley (with exception of bedrooms). The house is owned by an interior designer and an antiques dealer and you will find various collections of memorabilia crammed into every available bookshelf and cupboard. This is a fascinating house and retains many original features. It is slightly unusual in that it does not have any en-suite bathrooms. However, there is a cloakroom on the ground floor and a cloakroom on the first floor. There are also 2 bathrooms which have a traditional cast iron bath (circa 1920) and a sink only. There are no showers.
If you want group accommodation in Henley with real charm and character that’s a little bit “quirky” and with a fabulous garden, then you will love Reddish Manor. But, if you want power showers, surround sound systems and hot tubs, then this isn’t the place for you!
The kitchen has a large dining table and family area with seating, large flat screen TV, DVD & CD player. There is also a large range oven, big fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The table and chairs can seat 16. French doors lead to a patio area with table and chairs overlooking part of the large garden.
As well as the kitchen table there is also a formal dining room which has been filled with antiques and personal collections. This dining table is slightly smaller and can seat 10 – 12 people, perfect for your group accommodation in Henley.
Off the kitchen is a large sitting room with high vaulted ceiling. There are numerous chairs and sofas as well as a piano and open fire.

We had a brilliant weekend at Reddish Manor. Plenty of space to relax, and to party, comfy bedrooms, large gardens, gorgeous kitchen (with absolutely everything you could possibly need!) and Garfield the owner was so helpful and amenable to anything we asked for. Everyone had a absolutely fabulous time! We would love to come again one day.
Sarah and Gary were the perfect hosts, very laid back, didn't interfere at all and were incredibly helpful when called upon. The house itself was undescribable, in a good way. So many interesting rooms, each with it's own unique theme or character. We had planned to leave and go off and do other things at some point over the weekend that we stayed, but there was enough to keep us occupied (pool, table tennis, croquet, trampoline etc.) that we ended up only leaving to restock from the small shop nearby. Top marks all round, no complaints whatsoever.
Other things you need to know
2 pets welcome. The owners have both dogs and cats so we do not recommend this house for guests with severe allergies.
