Description

Hidden along a footpath in Wallingford, the large black door to this detached cottage gives no idea to the passer-by of what delights await guests behind it. Stepping into this spacious holiday home the first thing that greets you is the welcoming feeling. Large and comfortable, this self-catering cottage offers families and couples the perfect spot to take a weekend break or a long relaxing holiday. With four bedrooms, three with views across the river to the rural landscape beyond of the Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the king-size double with patio doors to the raised terrace and the large wrap around sitting room, this is an ideal holiday hotspot. If you are lucky enough to be celebrating a special event or birthday while staying at the cottage, the dining room is perfect for entertaining and seats all guests admirably. The well-equipped and fitted kitchen is what would be expected in a beautiful riverside home with double doors to close it off from the rest of the living area. But the real star of this vacation is the garden with a river mooring. Cascading lawns run down to meet the decking where you can watch passing boats and cheer on the rowers as they cut through the water or even hire a boat for the day. Why not take a book and a cool drink and settle down to enjoy the tranquillity of the local birdsong, the sound of the river and the bells of the neighbouring St Leonards Church? Take a stroll through the quaint lanes of Wallingford and explore this quintessential English town with its tea rooms and local shops, pubs and restaurants. Why not look up what is showing at the theatre which is located in the town square? And if you think you may have seen this square before your visit and you are a fan of Midsomer Murders, then you have, Wallingford is the original Causton. But its link to detectives goes back further than Midsomer Murders, Wallingford was the home, until her death in 1976, of Agatha Christie and she is buried nearby in Cholsey. Further afield you have the delights of Henley-on-Thames with its annual Regatta, or Oxford with its long history and dreaming spires. But whatever you decide to do on this holiday, or the next, the welcome of Ninea awaits your return.
Wallingford has a history dating back to King Alfred and it was at Wallingford that William the Conqueror crossed the Thames with his army, before marching on London. Wallingford Castle was built at his command to cement it's royal importance, and during its lifetime has played host to many royal visitors including King John, Henry Vl and Edward the Black Prince, to name but a few. Unfortunately, what remains of it now is only impressive earth works but some of the stones were re-used to build the St Mary-le-More Church which can be found near the centre of the town.

‘This is an idyllic spot but it should not be at the expense of the basics. The property is rated by Sykes Holiday Cottages as 4 ticks “Excellent standard throughout”, but in my opinion it would be more correctly described as old and tired. However, the main issue is the cleanliness. A number of reviews have mentioned that the property needs a deep clean, and it really does – I wish I had read them first!’

‘We had an excellent stay in Ninea, the cottage is spacious and well equipped. The location is unbeatable and well placed for nice walks along the path. We had prompt and helpful responses to questions from the property manager before our stay. We are already planning our next trip back.’

‘Wallingford is a quirky little town which is nice to have walk around (no need to take the car as its on your doorstep) the dolphin pub is quite nice and if you eat in there, you will not walk out hungry! as said the river is at the bottom of a well maintained garden, which is handy as my husband is an avid angler. i know there has been issues with the heating/boiler, this has now been resolved as a new one has been installed, there has also been areas of redecoration and skylight cleansing also the baths have been re-sealed which tell me former complaints have been listened to and attended to! we'll be back again...as often as possible!’

‘In 22 years of weekends away twice a year this stay is the worst that we have experienced. It was exceptionally cold with inadequate heating. Even with cold weather one would expect to be as warm as at home! The owner stated that we should have filled in an issues review form. We did but it disappeared after we left. There were lots of cobwebs in the skylight, one double bed had paper, dust and dirt underneath. The patio doors are old, rusty and dirty around the tracks. This property is resting on its location laurels. The location is excellent but that's it. Worst of all I have been made to feel a liar. I would not recommend this property or Sykes Cottages’

‘Excellent location, rural but the convenience of a small market town in your backyard. As the say "a house is all about location" well this is house really beautifull located. House is self shows it self very well on pictures. But quality in real time is a bit different. Bit damp, everything is painted white but badly done, finishing in the house is poor. Enough square footage to live in comfort. But all in all good do with not a little tlc but a lot of tlc. (roof/drainpipe especialy) Very nice lawn, decking, beautiful location for a big garden party. Parking your car is possible, there is a kind of garage without a roof (Of road parking) but not with the easiest entry. The lacking of a roof and the big tree that covers the parking space your car looks terrible after a night being parked there. So all in all, a mixed picture. We paid the top fee because of the season, for that amount of money the quality could be a bit better. Thats the reason for the three stars, in the low season the value for money balance is a bit better. Last thing washing machine only 3 kg, and no tumble dryer.’

‘We booked to stay at the house for the end of the fishing season. Accommodation is well appointed with wonderful views and access to a good section of the Thames. There are 4 bedrooms, each of which sleep 2 people and a couple of bathrooms. House has everything you could need for a holiday. Only slight downside was the heating, which took a bit of working out. All in all, one of the better holiday lets we have used on the Thames, close to the village but far enough away to be able to enjoy peace and quiet. Only drawback was the parking, there are spaces for 2 cars only. Nevertheless, we were suitably impressed that we have booked the same house for next March already.’
