All visitors please note:
Minimum booking 2 nights winter months (except Christmas/New Year), 3 nights spring and autumn, 5 nights mid summer (June July and August).
We have 3 large bedrooms: 1 king size, 1 double with shower, 1 twin with cot. Family bathroom. Well equipped kitchen with dishwasher, microwave etc. Washer/dryer in utility room. Gas central heating. Large open plan living space leading straight on to private landing stage and river. There is a french window from one bedroom to the small side garden, with lawn and paved picnic area, and gate through to second landing stage. (Boat moored here belongs to friends)
All linen is provided and beds made up, but you may like to bring large bath towels. Longer lets will have weekly cleaning and change of linen included in the rental price.
The Henley Royal REGATTA week in early July is more expensive, as Water's Edge is in prime position for the races. Please e-mail if you are interested in that week (the Regatta runs from Wednesday to Sunday at the beginning of July). Ditto the Henley Music Festival (week following), held on the same site.
The lane is narrow, and PARKING can be a problem. We have hard standing for 2 cars outside our front door (from door to wooden fence), so we need to know your car details to make sure no-one else takes these spaces. Do NOT park on any other area without express permission from the relevant householder (any serious parking transgression could result in witholding deposit - we really need to keep friendly with our neighbours!)
It is possible in the summer, for a small extra charge, to borrow the electric launch (moored in the indoor boathouse) if you are boat-competent. Boat use runs from Easter to October. The river and the weather are too unpredictable in winter months. There may also be a rowing boat available. IT IS IMPORTANT NOT TO ATTEMPT TO TAKE THE BOAT OUT IN HIGH WINDS/FLOOD CONDITIONS. (If in doubt - don't go out!)
This is a quiet neighbourhood and we must insist on no noisy parties. Please let us know if you are planning a celebration. The other area of contention is RUBBISH - there is a complicated recycling system and notes to explain it are in the file.
Your deposit is cashed and will be returned to you after checkout if all well. Full payment due at least 2 weeks before you arrive.
If you have to cancel, the deposit will only be returned if that time is re-let. If you cancel after final payment, we will return 50% of the rental paid.
